I have never seen a group where everyone has questioned a move. Now if all of us question the move, why didn't the powers that be? You make a trade,2 picks not smart anyway,and you have the chance to pick up a key CB, but you don't. Then the smartest part of the whole trade the bumping up in the 2nd round, and you choose not to maximize your pick by picking a pick we could have had if we stayed where we were to begin with. We were so lame in our F.A. signings to begin with. Forget the icon, I am banging my head for real.

You said everything I was thinking why they didn\'t get Rashean Mathis in 2nd and Bradie James in 3rd?

Why didn\'t we get Marcus Trufant in the 1st and Boss Bailey or E.J. Henderson in the 2nd? My head is killing me right now. I have been in agony all day. Wife says I\'m moping around like my dog died.

Trufant , I really don\'t know about that one. My guess about Bailey is, 2 acl problems (both knees) might have scared everyone off till later. Henderson has had back trouble I hear.

What\'s the knock on Bradie James - no good against the pass?

I think James would be a great pickup now. He has much to learn but so do they all. He needs to be more patient in plays and not overrun the play. I like his pick if we go for him.

I think the only knock I\'ve heard about Bradie is his questionable speed. Then again, these same people that question his speed say that he has more than enough smarts, size, and strength to make up for it. He plays smart and is versatile, because he can play any linebacker position. I have a VERY strong feeling that even after drafting \"Cie\", the Saints might snag up James with the fifth pick in the fourth rd if he is still available. I\'ve seen a trend going so far. Sullivan is a defensive tackle who is the only one not part of the trend. Stinchcomb could play anywhere on the offensive line from what I am understanding. Cie can play safety or linebacker. I wouldn\'t try him at corner on the pro level, but he\'s versatile. Que Bradie James. His versatility could be a big factor in someone picking him up in the fourth round. I\'m actually almost shocked that he is still on the board, but I\'m praying that the Saints make the wise choice and draft him.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

So Bradie could develop into a good ILB, paired along with James Allen and Cie Grant at OLB. Maybe that\'s the plan for the future.

Well, we\'re going to find out in about 1 hour. My fingers are crossed on Bradie James.

I have calcium deposits in both shoulders. They told me they could scrape them down. However they would have to do it every 2 years at least. Knowing this, I understand how he feels. The damn things hurt like hell.
