No offense, Joe, but it was you I was talking about.

I guess that comment was just a remnant of some joking that used to go around here 2 or 3 years back.

Sometimes I miss that old gang, but not the headaches they could cause.

i knew you were joking and so do I. Some of the old guys still lurk around,I think they're just waiting to see what we have to say.

It's all in good sport my friend.

Curious, wasn't that the year of the strike? I thought we had replacement players in that year. I'm old too, so maybe I'm thinking of something else.

I have always thought, how cool it would be, for the Saints to go back to the ol 3-4 defense. It just seemed to work better for us, back in the day. I watch the Bears, Steelers, and Ravens use it, and it just seems more effective to me. Maybe I'm on an island on this one.
