wr's?

i want to see more playing time outta bethel and stallworth didnt even play from what i saw. the special teams can use a michael lewis as a gunner hopefully he will play again. corners got beat deep a few times but thankfully titans dropped the ball. and dline needs better pressure on qb. thankfully no serious injuries, and the amac hit by a mascot is just another weird thing to involve the saints. all in all i cant wait til preseason is over and hopefulyl we can stay healthhy b/c i think we will surprise some EXPERTS if thats what u wanna call em.

RE: wr

given the fact that we were able to get alot of time in to a few backups with the first team OL was a plus. But it showed how far we have to go. way to soft all around. I would have to say they all did well. except Henderson. I know it is objective but I would have to say that was a clean drop. The rest did well altogther. If this keeps up it is going to be tough to make cuts. The guys with big contracts better be worried.

RE: wr

I hate to say it, but Henderson looked sloppy. He dropped one in the bread basket & fell down on his block that could have put Reggie Bush in the endzone. Jones, Colston, & Hass were impressive.

I pretty much agree with this. Yesterday, I thought the number 2 WR spot was either going to be Donte or Devery, after last night, it seems to be up in the air. They all performed well, with the exception of Devery. With Donte on the sidelines, it's hard to make a judgement on him, but Payton doesn't like him much already. I still think he will start in week one because he has more real playing time than pretty all the other receivers combined, with the exception of Joe Horn.

Henderson looked sloppy in all phases. He did nothing but anger me last night.

when devery dropped that pass he didnt look to natural trying to catch it. hes not a natural receiver thats for sure but i think he will be able to produce big plays. he was a rb comin to lsu from opelousas, and then moved to wr later on in his college career. id love to see bethel, stallworth, michael lewis, and devery on the field at the same time just b/c of there speed. we would probably have to hand the ball off b/c they'd drop the ball if we threw it but opposing teams would have a hard time covering all that speed.

If we're going to have Devery on the roster, I'd rather see him as a KR or PR. There.....he could be dangerous. As a wideout, you have to catch the ball in motion.....which obviously Devery cannot do.

I think they should convert Devery into a CB or something. Lyman, Hass, Colston.....impressed!

Anyone who watched that game and still thinks this team will win more than 6 games is crazy. There were a lot of encouraging things to come out of it, but boy do we have issues. Jammal Brown was abused at left tackle. The guard play was attrocious...i know we were missing Mayberry and Holland...FIncher had zero tackles and played the majority of the game. Jason Craft is aweful. Henderson still cant catch and Donte is in the doghouse. I like Colston and Hass as much as you guys, but they are not top flight receivers. Gonna be another long year, but a more entertaining year. The team will be better, but still not good.

It's all in the reflexes.

Though is sounds pretty negative, but there is some truth to what you just said. But then again, it was only the FIRST preseason game... so don't be so down just yet. We have plenty of games left before the season starts... just remember that.
