No papzy, i'm with you all the way. I'm suppsoed to be excited about Bush, when we have Deuce, excited about Faine, when he was dumped for Bentley, and excited about taking prob the 5th best safety on the board at the time, in the second round. Uh, no. Average draft at best, only cause Bush brings up the grade so high. Not too many good moves. Sorry TR, I am not on board. Can't get too excited for paying 50 something mil to a guy who will get about 10-15 touches a game, a center who CLEVELAND didn't want, and a reach for an average safety.

In reference to GoldRush... ROFL... look at the last 5 years of us drafting on the second day homie and how many of them are still here or even turned into a decent pro. That's what I thought. I'm sure we'll land some hidden gem in the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th rounds. I mean after all, we are the Saints.

Our special teams got more exciting you mean sw... it's sure going to be fun watching him return kicks and punts. Unless we have something really creative planned for the guy, I don't see him getting more than 10 carries a game unless Deuce gets hurt again. That's a pretty damn big insurance investment for Deuce.

Look I'll be the first people to go order Bush's jersey, but it did not make sense of us to select him. The Texans were smart to realize what's the point in drafting another running back if you already have a solid guy under contract who's getting make a load of money. Like I said above... I really hope Loomis makes me look like a fool. I'll be the first one to admit it if Harper pans out.
Yep...you're right. Let's just trade all of our late picks since they always suck. We've never had good players drafted in the late rounds which means we never will.

Who says Dulymus is staying?
Let's face it, in the past 2 years, Deuce's been hurt and out of shape.
What? Didn't you hear? Deuce is untouchable.

In reference to GoldRush...

Only some genius would suggest something like that... sorry I'm not that smart. No one said don't try, but even if we get a decent guy on the 2nd day, it still won't make me feel any better with what we did the first day. I glad you'll still be this optimistic when we draft Jimbo Bob Johnson from Alaska U. who's the best dog sledder up north has ever seen. Get realistic buddy.

Who said Deuce is untouchable? You're reading skills have issues.

You guys sure do know how to put a damper on a great day for the Saints. Sure we blew it with the Harper pick. That was obviously a dumb pick, however you try to spin it. However, I was dissapointed when Mangold went off the board but then we got a center in Faine who is young and has shown if he stays healthy he can play. It's frustrating we could have filled another need on our oline, dline or lb but overall I'm happy to have Reggie and I think our team is definately better.

Nope...we suck man. Nothing from here on out will make up for what we've done so far.
