So he made it official.........

Vince Young has said he is going into the NFL Draft, so now there is no more arguments about that specific subject. Houston has also made it official that they WILL select Reggie Bush. Now the Saints are on the clock, and they have many options.

1.) Select Matt Leinart - What this will do is send a QB with a GREAT O-line and even better RBs and WRs, who is arrogant to a Saints team who is looking to clean up their image. His upside is being a winning QB and having composure in the 2 minute drill. He played quite well in the Rose Bowl throwing screen passes to White and Bush. The biggest knock on Leinart is his weak arm and small hands, but he is a proven winner.

2.) Select Vince Young - What this will do is bring a dual threat at QB. He is quicker than Michael Vick and bigger than Byron Leftwich. He is a proven leader, and even went as far as to place notes in his teammates lockers in the offseason stating "If you want to beat Ohio State come workout with me." They did and they won. The biggest knock on him is also a weak arm and he is prone to fumbling due to poor ball handling. He also is a proven winner, but without proper teaching he could be the second coming to Brooks.

3.) Trade down for extra picks and bulk up on Defense - With a VERY weak LB corps and DTs who couldn't get through USC's O-line this is a very key need. This will bring young talented defensive players much like what N.E. has been doing the past 5 years. This will not put butts in the seats to start the season but if they gel well could mean a playoff berth after this horrible 3-13 season.

What is the best option? Who knows. If there is no decent QB coming through Free Agency then we MUST select a Franchise qb with Matt or Vince, or if Brett Favre expresses intrest in moving to the Gulf Coast to play for the Saints so he can be closer to home, we would then need to choose one of the QBs. Other than that we must draft Defense. I don't mean 1 pick for defense I mean all DEFENSE for the draft. Pick up some large linemen for the O-line through FA, and watch the teams gel.

Oh and one more thing JUST SAY NO to Mike Martz. Please GAWD get him away from this team. We need a proven DC who is looking to make his mark as a HC. That is all!

One thing....No way Vince Young is faster than Michael Vick, and Leftwich is definitely bigger than Young(6'5'' 245).

Damn Hagan I couldn't have said that any better. Bush hasn't declared for the draft yet and I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't.
