Mel Kiper: I think he's got to become a Saint. If you have No. 2 and he's there, you start the LEinart era with the Saints. If NO can get him, Saints fans should be thrilled. He'll carry a higher grade than Eli Manning. It'd be a great, great pick.

RE: Mel likes Linehart

Everyone has been complaining here over the last couple of seasons that we needed to draft an impact linebacker of DT. Now, Leinhart is available and everyone thinks he will be the savior. Has everyone got the Hasbeen disease?

Hawk all the way. We will get extra picks and still get him and be able to draft a quality QB with the 34th pick overall. I still like Jacobs and I still like the trade with Oakland AB for Collins and maybe another pick or two in return.

Stick a fork in Kerry Collins because he is done.

RE: Mel likes Linehart

Either Collins, Kitna or Volek right now would be my only choices. Collins seems to thrive when he lands on another team for the first year or two, with the exception of the Saints, but does anyone really thrive while playing for the Saints.

I think Collins still has three to four seasons left in him. I know he had a bad year, but he was asked to do something that I think he has never been good at anyway. He is more of a game manager than a gun slinger. When you look at his best years with the Giants, they won with a ball control offense and solid defense. If we built up our defense and landed a good left tackle, we could win with him.

RE: Mel likes Linehart

I heard that Linehart might pull a "Eli" on us, if we draft him. Is that true?

RE: Mel likes Linehart

I read that somewhere too but don't put too much into that. Even if he did do what Eli did we would get alot more out of trading him than keeping him.

RE: Mel likes Linehart

IF that is the case with Leinart, then I say buy the farm for him. Get four draft picks by trading down with a team in need of a QB who is in the 8th-12th pick range...That way we get their 1st and 2nd rounder this year, and maybe a first and third next year. Possibly even a 2nd pick.
