A. J. Hawk

I have been hearing a lot about this guy, and I thought it was just hype. Then I watched the Ohio State/Notre Dame game the other night. Now I see what all the talk was about.

I know it was only one game, and I'll hopefully get to see some film of him, but WOW.

He is a sure and solid tackler, ALWAYS around the ball, and has really good game speed.

At one point the ND running back was trying to score a touchdown, and Hawk met him at the goal line and just
CRUSHED

him and kept him from scoring.

If we could move down a couple of spots and pick him up, I wouldn't be upset.

RE: A. J. Hawk

I think this team needs a QB more than anything, seeing as how our defense ended up not sucking too much ass, but I think that if we moved down, got AJ Hawk and more picks, I would be pleased.

.. and the kid has range... from side to side of the field...Personally I wouldn't pick Leinart or Young. This kid looks like the real deal.

RE: A. J. Hawk

I think a solid linebacker like Hawk would be a very smart draft choise. I mean both Leinart and Young might become big time NFL quarterbacks but that won't help if the team don't have defence. Look at the Bears this year, Orton was a rookie taken in the fourth round and they are still in the playoffs due to GREAT defence. I think a guy like Hawk could bring us a little closer to that.

Does anyone know what DTs will be aviable in FA?

Of course not! But what I'm saying is that it might not be the best value to bring in a QB with a high pick if you can't stop the other team from scoring. I would like the Saints to bring in a veteran QB and then bring in another young QB either trough the draft or FA. A veteran could help groom A-Mac and the other QB and we might be able to gain trade value or a starter from either one later.
I also would like to se A-Mac in NFLE where he could get some much needed experience of playing on a high level.

You kids get off my lawn!

But our defense can stop people from scoring. The problem was an offense that gave up the most turnovers in the league, scored sporadically, and never set a tone of consistency at any point this year. Close to half the total points given up by our team came off turnovers. I don't know what league you can win like that, but it's not this one. With a coach who cuts those mistakes, and a accurate, good decision making QB like Leinart, I guarantee you would see even more improvement in our D. We have the talent, and there are LBs aplenty in this draft. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with a second round Odell Thruman or Lofa Tatupu. I know I wouldn't.
