I somewhat agree, but have you seen the Eagles defense overall the past 2 years? Arguably, there was ZERO coaching going on there. Their defense was packed with talented players and played "limp wrist" football at best. Total slackers because they never really replaced their DC Jim Johnson after he died in 2009.

He's only 31... sometimes a new team brings the swagger back to players. Thoughts?

Re: Nnamdi Asomugha

Just a random thought but would people be against signing Nnamdi Asomugha and then somehow getting Tyrann Mathieau in the draft (not the first round)

Would love to see Tyrann drafted, but in later rounds. He would have a chance to prove himself in training camp. But using a higher draft pick isn't an option in my opinion. He has to prove he is NFL material AND that he can play football without smoking pot.

For some reason i think this has become a real possibility. I was watching a interview with him and he was talking about how he was on a plane sitting next to Rob Ryan and Ryan was joking around about how he was going to draft him and turn him into this amazing corner back. Although Tyrann said they were just joking around i honestly think there may have been some truth to what was said
And i personally think that Nnamdi and Greer would be a solid tandem and Tyrann becoming our slot corner would potentially give us a solid/deadly cornerback crew

Who Dat..... Drew Dat!!!! Man i love my SAINTS!!!

I loved watching the Honeybadger during his ball hawking LSU college days & would welcome him here but the best thing for that kid might be to get as far, far away from N.O. as possible. A pocketfull of dough and the same knucklehead influences could spell disaster long term. Just my opinion...

I agree but at the same time....all of these infractions happend while he was on campus in BR.....it seems to me he needs to stay away from LSU more than N.O.

I get the thinking....its just bad influences are everywhere not just in the place you grew up in. I still think they shoule draft him if he's available in later rounds....at some point the whole "good for the lockerroom" schtick doesn't bring in enough actual talent for you to win. Sometimes you have sacrafice to win and take a chance on a knuckle head or 2.
