Hawk rumor, bad news...

http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/9376416/2

There is talk around the league that the Saints, who have the second overall pick, want to trade down. Why? They don't want a quarterback, they have two good defensive ends so Mario Williams really doesn't make sense, and they have their eyes on Ohio State linebacker A.J. Hawk. As we near the draft, that might be the wise move. Hawk is considered as ready to play as any player in this draft. "He's the best linebacker I've seen come into the draft in the past 10 years," said one NFC coach. "I don’t know if it goes that far back, but maybe the last five," said an AFC coach. "The kid is special."
Awful news, drafting a guy who won't make it off the bench this season in round 1. This would cement the "same old saints" with the new coaching staff.

Simmons, Fujita and Bockwoldt seem to indicate we're good to go without Mr. Over-rated.

BMG, the most over-rated player in this year's draft is your boy, "Super Mario".

BMG, I can't decipher through your sarcasm to tell if you feel that way even a little bit...

Actually, I think he is trying to backtrack on Mario by making us think it was an act.

The Hawk > Super Mario

Hey! Lets give A.J. a video game name. Does anyone else remember the Captain Sky Hawk games for the NES?

I personally am fine with "Da Hawk." Sounds mean. Reminds me of LOD, the Road Warriors. We have the Manimal Will Smith and Da Hawk. Hell. we could call them the Road Warriors.

I like Manimal, I'm even OK with Da Hawk.

My problem is Charles "the grimace" Grant on the other end.

We need The Immortal Mario Williams.
