My early list of the 22 starters, in 2007.

Just trying to find something to do, it's not like I am telling the organization what they should do. I'm just checking to see how close I will be to what the starter will be next season. I like checking out the mock drafts, but you can only do that so much.

QB--Drew Brees
RB--Reggie Bush(Deuce gets traded)
FB--Mike Karney
TE--FA, Trade, or Draft pick
WR--Marques Colston
WR--Devery Henderson(Joe gets cut)
T--Jammal Brown
G--Jahri Evans
C--Jeff Faine
G--Jamar Nesbit
T--Jon Stinchcomb(If not re-signed, Zach Strief)

Defense

DE--Will Smith
DE--Charles Grant(If not re-signed, FA, Trade, or Draft pick)
DT--Hollis Thomas(If not re-signed, FA, Trade, or Draft pick)
DT--FA, Trade, or Draft pick
LB--Scott Fujita
LB--FA, Trade, or Draft pick(Maybe Danny Clark)
LB--FA, Trade, or Draft pick

RE: My early list of the 22 starters, in 2007.

The only unreasonable thing I see here is: Deuce gets traded.

Two backs is quickly becoming the NFL norm. Also Reggie and Deuce have a symbiotic relationship. Both were productive last year because of each other.

Reggie still isn't ready to handle the full RB load. His downhill running has improved, but it still can't touch Deuce's ability in that department.

Also have you calculated the cap hit for trading Deuce? His contract extension is only 2 years old. He got over $12 million to sign on. It's a 7-8 year extension. So that means that the Saints are still on the hook for $8-$9 million on the cap that accelerates to immediate impact if Deuce is traded.

So it'll hurt on the cap to trade him. He's productive.

I can't understand the rationale. Please explain?

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

I agree with SFIAH. The duo worked well last year. It kept Deuce on the field all year with no injuries. It also (hopefully) will keep Bush healthy for years to come. Unless it is a blockbuster trade we should not fix what isn't broken.

I wonder what Harper's status is. Has he rehab'd well?

Maybe Payton will draft a LT and move Jamal Brown to TE this year?

I think Payton will draft a CB or LB (Poz) in the first...Then I think he takes a shot at a DT or OG

I don't know if I'm pencilling in Bullocks just yet. He's lost in coverage, misses assignments regularly, & doesn't tackle worth a damn! Trading Deuce would be a mistake, too....a big one. Two backs are better than one. I do like the idea of Danny Clark starting next year though. Every time he was in the game, the guy made a play.

stinchcomb is a Restricted FA, i dont see anyone signing him since they would have to also have to give us a 2nd round pick do to so if we dont match their offer

I'm sorry why are you taking it out on Bullocks when we play man to man! Leaving him in the box only for Thomas to get burned by a length of a full railroad! Hell with these people blaming it all on Bullocks, "OH missed assignments this, OH uts not all Thomas' fault". Yes it is! We play MAN TO MAN, this guy is a safety in the box leaving all the way out just to try to make-up for Thomas' let-downs.

I can't beleive this guy can't tackle in your eyues, that's one of the things you can't ever say abput this guy. He's pretty much a sure tackler who doesn't go for the big hits all the time and plays strong, you must have the wrong guy.

I see Deuce being back as well as Shanle. Have to have these two guys, they've been successfull all year long. I don't think we re-sign Stinchcomb, I like us getting L.Davis from the Cardinals, who is 10x better and doesn't cost big

Leonard Davis made 9 million this year. I think that is costing big bucks for a guy who never lived up to the billing and has never made a pro bowl. If we lose Stinchcomb, we give Strief a shot and we use one of our 4th rounders to draft another OT. I really dont see Leonard Davis as an option.

like I stated already... stinchcomb is a Restricted Free Agent which means if any team signs him and we dont match then we get their 2nd round pick in exchange
