Rookie Roman Harper is the Saints' starting strong safety.

Harper could put up solid numbers as a first-year IDP. Jay Bellamy and Omar Stoutmire are in danger of being cut Saturday.

Whoa... Evans is going to contribute earlier than I expected. Figured he was going to move inside when he was drafted but I thought he was going to be a project. He definately gets a cookie.

Bullocks free lancing while Harper helps in run supports... I like that.

So much for the Stoutmire/Bellamy starting bs we've heard during minicamp... who did they think they were fooling.

RE: Give these rookies some cookies

While it's nice to see some rookies crack the line up instead of being depth players, this is kind of a scary thought to have 2 very green safeties backing up 2 shaky CB's. Hopefully we add a solid CB next year and well see them all grow as a unit.

What's up B&B

Mayberry is in jeopardy of being cut

Evans has learned the game quickly and has played well, hopefully Holland can stay healthy 4 us, then we wont seem that bad

Harper definitely needs a cookie, he can make plays, sorta like a young Dawkins or Harrison to me, and Bullocks is a young Blaine Bishop or Woodson

With how well Ninkovich has looked, it didn't make sense to keep Bockwoldt. If we switch to a 3-4 next year, I think Nink would be great in that D.

I'll be a little ticked if Branch gets cut and Craft gets to stay. I just hope that the guys that Payton likes have to keep proving themselves, unlike Haz where they got free passes once they made it into the inner circle.

Oh and by the way, be careful giving out those cookies. We don't need another Sullivan on our hands
