2006 Draft
 
Talk of the Saints in the playoffs is worthless. But not their possible draft position. What's needed more: offensive coordination with QB Vince Young or a solid D starting with AJ Hawk?

First of all, talking about the draft right now is like trying to figure out the amount of navel lint that Ricky Williams will collect this summer while puffing a fatty. The problem is that we don't have anyone competent in the Front Office to look at the available talent pool and make some sort of logical decision. Whether or not you like or dislike the coaching staff, the fact is that they have NO input into the choice of who comes or goes. It is all done by the chief halfwit LOOMBOOM, who is a cap man not a football man.

Loomis would not know football talent if it fell in his lap and would not know what to do with a top draft pick if he had te chance they would probably take a half a** LB from Akron or Harvard. Did anyone see that FB on the yale highlights Sat...Over 4000 yards rushing in his college career, the guy has potential, he is playing in the Ivy League though, kinda like the pee wee league of college football...

Regretfully this has been the problem since LoomBoom came aboard. He is great and I mean great with negotiating contracts and saving cap room, but horrible in putting talent in Hazlett's hands. My contention is that he doesn't have a sense of what a football operation is. In the glory days of Finks and Mora, we did well and were headed in the right direction, unfortunately Finks died and we got Slick Billy. The decline started from there. And we all know the rest of the story. :(

I say we take Young or Lienart, I would even be interested in Jay Cutler...How about another OL like Andrew Whentworth or DL like Kyle Williams...

He's caught my eye, as well. A smooth operator.

I would go OL... give Amac a shot next year, maybe put brooks on the bench... because the way Amac plays he won't complete a year.

TallySaint 11-11-2005 01:09 PM

Many teams will take a look at Bryan Cupito, a junior at Minnesota, should he decide not to play another season. I suspect he will complete his college career.

Brooks and the entire coaching staff will not be back this year from what I hear. It looks like we will be re-building again.

TheDeuce 11-15-2005 12:44 AM

From what I hear, the whole coaching staff should have been gone last year. They will be gone with this year, (HOPEFULLY!!!!!) but I'm not so sure about Brooks. Even though he sucks, I would actually be curious to see what he could do with a good coaching staff. However, I'm still in favor of drafting Leinart.

Milians 11-15-2005 01:13 AM

At this point i'd be in favor of seeing a blind, retarded midget with no arms or legs in the lineup ahead of Brooks. It is time to put Amac in. We need to see how he performs in gametime pressure situations. Every year I tell myself that this is gonna be the year that Brooks puts it all together. That bastard is the most frustrating player in the NFL. He's one of the top five QB's in the NFL when it comes to physical ability, but in the bottom five when it comes to leadership qualities. I wanna see what we've got in McPherson. He needs to get an opportunity to showcase his skills. If we can give Brooks five years, then we can at least give Amac five games. If he doesn't show us anything, then I would definitely be in favor of picking a QB in the 1st round this year. As exciting as it would be to watch Vince Young play against Ron Mexico twice a year, I think I would rather have Leinart under center for the black and gold. I want a QB who will get the ball in the hands of our playmakers. He reminds me of Tom Brady.

I agree with most of the points here except drafting an Offensive Lineman. I say we should pick one out of the free agent pool who has atleast 5 years of experience. Sure, many rookie OL can start the year that they're drafted, but they'll play undisicplined for the first couple of years. If you look at any great offensive line, you'll notice that they're all veterans who have played with each other for a couple of years. There are not many players like LeCharles Bentley, and the Saints were lucky to get him.

I believe (in no particular order) quarterback, safety, linebacker, and corner are positions we need to pursue. However, like offensive linemen, I'd much prefer getting a veteran linebacker out of the free agent pool. Those are two positions were a couple years of NFL experience will mean a world of difference.

Also, I believe we need to draft people who know how to block. This includes any wide receivers, as well. A blocking wide receiver can mean the difference of a 20 yard reception or a 45 yard touchdown. Our special teams unit suffers tremendously. The majority of the problems with the unit is their lack of blocking ability. Many people have admitted being upset because Michael Lewis' play seemed to have declined. However, now they see that no one on the team is having much success running back kicks either.

Deuce's lack of performance can also be attributed to horrible run blocking by the offensive line.

And, before people decide to jump on my comment and claim I'm being unfair to quarterback Aaron Brooks, consider this: Run blocking and Pass blocking are two entirely different things.

Right now, we have a decent Pass blocking line with horrible Run blocking abilities. Also, Horn is the only decent blocking receiver we have. I recall a couple of plays where I've seen Horn throw a block that made yards-upon-yards of difference. All of our receivers need to learn this trade.
