Saints not short on offensive weapons

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I’m pleased with how they’re beginning to catch the ball. They’re picking up the offense a little quicker than I thought they would, so overall it’s a pretty good group.� Curtis Johnson http://www.2theadvocate.com/sports/s...l?index=13&c=y little something...

RE: Saints not short on offensive weapons

Play along... Remove our top 2 WR's (Horn, Stallworth) from the roster.

Could you imagine our starters at WR? Henderson, Lewis, Hass, Lyman, Derrius Thompson, and Jamal Jones.

CB's across the league would be circling the Saints on their calendar as they're BREAKOUT game!

Exactly. We need Joe and Donte to stay healthy.

well given that we have 14 WR's on the roster right now, and every team keeps either 5 or 6. Who do you think makes it. It seems the only locks are Horn, Stallworth, and Henderson.

The n you have Johnson, Lewis, Lyman, C. Horn, Hass who i think are the next tier of guys.

At least 2 of these guys are going to be cut...who do you think goes?

Well, Lyman's going down with an injury and will spend another season on IR. I would never wish injury on him, but the only thing he's been consistent about in his career is being hurt.

Lewis will make it for his... return skills? I guess so, but when was the last time he took it to the house. Or, when was the last time you didn't see him running for the sidelines?!!! He's lost that, excitement.

Johnson... Return game as well, but I have a question. Why does it always seem like the fastest man in the NFL, never has the hands to match his speed? How come a track and field guy can't catch even a little bit?

Hass will make it b/c NOLA likes an underdog they can pull for. (i.e. Michael Lewis' rookie season)

I know nothing about Chris Horn except that he came from KC. Could we see a second coming of another Horn from KC? That would be nice, but highly unlikely.

So, in summation:

Lewis, Johnson, and Hass stay.

Chris Horn, Lyman gone.

Well last season he was obviously hurt so he couldn't do much of anything. But if you remember that last game of the season before that, against Tampa Bay, he took a punt return all the way down to like the three that pretty much saved the game for us, and we ended up winning.

So, in summation:

Lewis, Johnson, and Hass stay.

Chris Horn, Lyman gone.
This seems pretty logical. I definitely think that if one of those guys will be cut, it will be Chris Horn. Who? I am very interested to see if Lyman makes it. He sounds like an explosive WR when healthy, and he says that he is healthy, and he's not even using a knee brace. I think that if he's healthy at the beginning of the season, he'll make the roster. I also wouldn't be surprised to see one of those return specialists get cut. We also have Reggie who's return abilities are better than both Lewis and Bethel. And only one guy can return kicks...

I hope Lewis stays. People forget how absolutely horrendous our Special Teams unit was at blocking. The Saints were called for penalties in nearly ever kick return last season. Holding was the only way our team could block. Lewis is a momentum shifter. He's a game changer.

I hope Peyton and his coaches teach this team about two really important fundementals - the arts of blocking and tackling.

Reggie should never return kicks! Yes he has the ability, but leave it to Lewis and Bethel to sacrifice their bodies in one of the most dangerous positions of the game.

I know people say that fewer people are injured on special teams, but they're also on the field much less often.

Let Johnson or Lewis rack us up 28-30 yards a return on kick-offs and we'll be cool.
