you know, right before the draft took place

i was watching total access and they were saying the saints were going to keep the pick and go with reggie. but what surprised me was they said it was bensons call. and benson had told loomis to sign him but only if he would'nt be a hold out. they went on to say that benson was having the private plane prepped to fly to ny and bring bush back.......
now, who out of the whole draft would have sold more tickets?
i think benson sees $ signs............
in my opinion, i would have loved to have a sheetload of picks, but for now we have reggie, and i've tried to find wrong with it but i can't wait to see him in a saints jersey deep down inside.........
we all know the rumors that the saints have been shopping donte, henderson, smith, grant and maybe others......i have to believe there is truth to this as well.......payton is making this payton's team, so i would get use to changes.....
as for our second pick i can only say that harper was projected by rick gosselin (sports writer for dallas moring news) to go in the early 90's, but also had him highlighted as one of his gems in the draft......( i do and have followed his picks for yrs) and while it may not have been a need pick for now, i'm thinking along the lines of special teams as well.......smart, 300 career tackles, and could come in and contribute right away on special teams.......so, while we could have done better, i also reserve judgement til i see what exactly is in place when the season starts.................smitty

RE: you know, right before the draft took place

we missed out on the S/Special teamer from Dallas, and I feel this is a guy they had targeted. Without a 3rd rounder I feel they just didn't want to miss out. It may be a reach, but I will hold-off on judgement until we see what he can do on the field!
