Favre was at his prime when Javon made the probowl as a reserve. Who did Donte have? Brooks didn't know how to throw fade plays & most time he was throwing in areas to have his recievers killed. i am sure @ the end of the season Donte will top Javon.

Seeya Devery
I likeeeeeeey
Now Devery to SD for Henderson.
Screw that!
Cut Henderson and draft intelligently with the extra 4th next year.
This team isn't a 1 yr project gents.
With some patience I do believe I could see the NFC Champion Saints in my lifetime though.

I'll say it again...it was a character issue.... good people, good character, and good work ethic will get us where we need to be. I'm glad Smith, and Stalls, and all the other big money, big attitude, no guts playas are gone. I think we are well on the way to righting the ship.....Colston and some of these young receivers are hungry...and Hungry is GOOD!!!!!!!

nola that is silly to even compare a guy who had near 90 catches in a season. clearly better then donte. donte had his best year last year and it is also the only season he wasn't hurt. the first since he has been here. this year he started off hurt. i am not sad to see him go. he is able to be replaced. if it turns into a 3rd we got good value

For what it's worth, I think we got some pretty good production out of Stallworth in his years here. Yes he did have some drops, but I think that his hands are getting a little better. Like I said in an earlier post, the biggest reason for the trade is that we weren't going to offer him a big FA contract after this year because he wasn't the leader at WR we could build around like Horn. We need the $ to spend on defense and I bet now that Donte is gone, Reggie Bush will line up at WR more often. We got ok value for him, considering he was in the last year of his contract we weren't going to get much better. BTW, does anyone know what Simoneau's contract value/length is?

The thing I don't like about the trade is that now we have to throw Colston or Jamal Jones into the fire and start them at WR. If we had kept Stallworth, we would have had more time to groom one of our young WR's to start next year.

I hope Stall does well in Philly and I'm thinking McNabb and him will work well together as the season goes on. Bummer though, I've now got a fantasy team w/ both Philly WR's Reggie Brown and Stallworth.

Interesting comments in this article,

"The fast impression of 2006 seventh-round pick Marques Colston, Payton said, made dealing Stallworth a bit easier. When asked if Colston would be the No. 2 receiver, Payton said, "Right now, no question."

"Despite the need for a solid middle linebacker, Simoneau wasn't the main incentive for the deal. The draft pick was priority No. 1."

"That's how it started," Payton said. "The player was an additional part of the deal, which helps us. But more importantly, the beginning process of the talks, the draft pick was definitely something we were looking for."

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over, over, and over again...and expecting a different outcome!

I was trying to leave New Orleans yesterday morning when our plane was pulled back to the gate. We were told it was bad weather by the pilot, but when I called my brother, he said it was because there was a bomb at Philly Airport. We were released to continue our journey when Stallworth dropped it.

How does our number one receiver from 2005 go for a conditional 2nd day pick and a backup linebacker who's not started in 18 months? I see everyone's "justification", but I'm not that convinced that holding him until after the roster cuts doesn't improve his trade value. Also, if I were less than enamored of someone who might have substantial trade value, I shut the F*&K up about my displeasure so I didn't undermine my ability to get full value for him. I didn't think there was much foot to shoot off, but we continue to find more.
