Tight End Power!!!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Yeah, can you see us cutting Sloan and Carolina getting him to replace Walls. I can see him getting a 10 catch game just to slap us in the face....

Yeah, I have vivid memories of Bobby Hebert and Morten Anderson sticking it to us every chance they got. Sloan is three times better than Boo, but if he is the one cut because of money issues, I hope he goes out of the division. Hopefully the Saints will keep Sloan, because it could be something special.

Sloan did flop - but it was only one year. I hate it that when a guy has a bad year everyone jumps on him. Sammy Knight is another great example. Charlie Clemons too. Both are good players, who, given the right situation can be great.

Sloan is the same way to me. You put Conwell and Sloan in there together and I don\'t know if there is a more talented TE tandem in the league. Throw Boo in the mix and if all come through like they are supposed to, you could have three guys that could start elsewhere.

I\'ll be the first one to admit it is ALL about results - nothing else. I\'m just confused as to how some of you guys can be excited about Brooks, Mitchell, Allen, Ruff, Hodge, Sullivan... etc. etc. etc. b/c of their potential, but bash guys like Sloan and Williams. Yes, they had bad years last year. That could completely change this season and our TE corp could easily be one of our biggest assets.

If McCarthy put the position back in the playbook. He sure removed it mid way through last season. I\'m in agreement on the Sloan issue. I think he\'s too good of a TE to stay in his slump. He played with far worse of a supporting cast in Detroit and exceled. But given the situation we have created around him he does become odd man. I also agree on the issue with Knight and Clemons. It\'s sensible to get excited about unproven players though because every year a new star is born. Not too many 8 year veterans suddenly become superstars, but alot of rookies and second year players become the next perennial pro bowler in comparison.

I wonder if any of our TE\'s can play defense? Oh no!! Wait! Someone just cut another tight end..let\'s go sign him too!! Defense? Who needs defense?

I think the off season concentration on the TE position is a sign that te 2003 offense will feature more 2 TE sets.

It will be difficult for many teams to match up with all the proven offensive weapons the Saints have and Conwell and Sloan (or Boo) on the field at the same time.

Sloan did lay an egg last year against the Lions. that wasn\'t a good outing and he didn\'t seem to get back on track... I wouldn\'t be surprised if he improves from his slide.

David Sloan and Boo Williams laid more eggs than old Mcdonald\'s farm. That being said, Sloan is much better because he can actually block people, I definitely believe he will have good season.
