Draft Needs Now All We Can Look Forward To

No patience, and deservedly so. This was just the first in what will become a long string of inexcusable losses.

Clearly there's a lot left in the season, but with the loss to the worst team on the schedule, we can only anticipate a high draft pick, maybe even a top 10 pick.

There will be several quality corners.

LBs Dan Connor from Penn St., Keith Rivers from USC, Ali Highsmith from LSU.

CB Mike Jenkins from So. Fla., Charles Godfrey from Mizzou, and Chevis Jackson from LSU.

We should start making trades now so we can retool.

How about a guy who can actually coach defense? Our secondary looks so sorry that I'm starting to believe there's a more fatal flaw than talent alone. TOO many GAPING holes, too many blown assignments, horribly plays called on defense, and like caddy said, Gary Gibbs has absolutely no recognition skills and is about as sorry as I have seen.

Draft needs:
1. cb
2 lb
3.cb
4.lb
5. cb
6.lb
7. cb
If theres a round 8.....cb and lb.

P.S. I'm sick of seeing our cb's getting beat like little children.

I'm not giving up on them just yet, our offense will win some games for us as they did the last 4 weeks.
It would be nice thought if they could actually cover well for at least one game.

Me neither. I have accepted the fact we need to score 30+ points a game to win though.

Re: Draft Needs Now All We Can Look Forward To

Hell, I'm not giving up either but today they didn't look like a team with heart in the first half for sure. Brees throwing into triple coverage really wasn't the smartest thing i've seen him do. Got the ball intercepted by a linebacker. The offense just looked terrible, and I mean the whole offense. Wore the defense down by being out there most of the first half, knowing we were short 3 starters. I'd have thought that the offense would have tried a little better. Even the first touchdown might not have happened if not for pass interferance. These guys need to put the wole game together. You can't just play one half. That's why they have 2 halves.

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt!!!!!

Re: Draft Needs Now All We Can Look Forward To

It'd sure be nice to see us stop the pass once in a while. Jeez, these guys have no pass defense at all sometimes. I'm beginning to wonder if Will Mc is on to something here.

But I'm not giving up either. We've got good talent, if the inconsistentcy would just improve, we'd actually be a formidable team.

But it is what it is. Though I'd love to see us in the playoffs, I can't honestly say I believe we deserve to be there.

Re: Draft Needs Now All We Can Look Forward To

Well, the only time the offense looked OK was late in the game. Of course, too little, too late. Late in the game they went back to that spread formation that killed Jacksonville. Well, I am all for the Saints using their modified version of a run and shoot. They need to do that every week until it's stopped! As for the draft, gee, they can use help all over the field.
