Someone please help me understand...

Why would we spend a second round pick on one of our deepest positions on the team. I am not buying the Smith will be moved to conerback explanation when we could have simply drafted a true conerback while keeping Smith at a position that he played very well.

If we move Smith the coner you have two problems. You have a strong safety playing corner, his third best position and you have an unproven player playing strong safety. On top of that, we reached for a safety we could have gotten in the fourth round.

We have spent first and second round picks on two back up players. This is fine when you are stacked at every position but the Saints can't afford this luxury.

Someone please help me understand...

Bush isn't a backup. He's an offensive weapon that is unparalleled in the NFL other than Vick.

He's 6pts waiting to happen.

It's alright jnormand... it's just another day in the life of being a Saints' fan. I think we're all accustomed to it now... being the laughing stock of the league. And yet... we're still all here.

So in other words you are saying that Duece is going to the bench. Some how I don't see that unless he is still injured. I see Bush getting plenty of playing time but I don't see him starting.

With all of the holes we have on this team I don't see the logic of picking a third down back when we could have traded him for many more picks to fill actual needs. Especially when we just signed a good third down back for little money.

Hey, It's all part of being a Saints fan bro! Look at it this way, at least WE HAVE A TEAM to b!tch and moan about. We can all silently go home after games and kick our teddy bears.

At least we still have the Saints man. Better than not having a team at all, which is what we though might have happened 6 months ago.

Be happy....or something.

If any of the other 31 teams in the league would have landed Reggie Bush at #2 they would be having a party, yet here all you guys do is complain. The guy is an amazing player. He is going to so much for our running and passing game, as well as on special teams. We drafted the best player in the draft and you guys complain. Deal with it, Reggie is a Saint and is a great pick.

Well, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one scrating my head over the Roman Harper pick.

I am dealing with that....I'm not complaining about Reggie. I just think the Saints should have gone a different route with their Round 2 pick. But oh well...it's over....maybe they thought Roman was really special.
