I know Grants contract looks big now but with the increasing yearly cap he will be an upper mid value DE. It will balance out. give it time.

Gary Gibbs is like kryptonite to the Saints defense. We play too much man to man. Those guys have the potential except Shanle, Simeoneau and Jason David they just suck. Its like they have a leash on Will Smith. We need a DC who lives, breathe, drink, defensive plays.

Actually, is more like Will Smith got handled by every single LT he faced. Same goes for Grant on the other side.

Re: My UnWish List for next year...

HERE IS THE MUST! FIRE GARY GIBBS! He can't scheme, his defenses play TOO SOFT and there is no attitude on this defense. Time to bring in an aggressive DC to get these guys rolling. Imagine this. Even a mediocre ranked defense would make this team almost unstoppable.

I agree with all the players moves but GIBBS gotta go, we played like wussies all year and when Gibbs took his meds we played aggressive, A good coordinator would have pulled Simeoneau Jason David, Shanle & Bullocks a long time ago

as for the offense Payton turned it into the air force but with no ground assault we can't go far even if we did make the playoffs

Course, Gibbs is a terrible DC and he should be the first to go. Honestly, other than Fujita (and he's stretchin' it) every one of our starting LB's has to go. This is what NEEDS to happen:

Replace Hollis as starter-Hollis would be a GREAT rotational guy, but not impact DT
Albert Haynesworth?

Replace Byant Young-always on IR and undersized.
Draft someone ANYONE to be our small DT

Replace Jason David-Christ, you could get a John Curtis DB to play better!
Asante Samuel, Ashimounga (sp?) PLEASE!

Replace Josh Bullocks-Okay, if the coaches can't see this kid is not starting material,
all of them should be FIRED!
Any FA average FS would be an improvement!

Replace R.Harper-This kid isn't terrible, but since his injury he's slightly better than avg
If this were my team, I'd draft Steltz in a heartbeat. He's a BIG hitter
and would bring some much needed attitude to this defense.

Replace Simineau- My god, does the word BACKUP mean anything?
I like the MLB from Univ of Arizona Larsen. Tackling machine reminds
me of a young Zach Thomas

Replace Shanle- Might be a homer, but for the value we could get him in the draft, he
would be a huge upgrade. ALI HIGHSMITH! Watch him in the BCS and
you'll see what I mean.

Replace Jamar Nesbit-Average, nothing great. Bring in FA Faneca so we can FINALLY
have a power running threat.

Here's my shocker- Move J.Brown BACK to RT. If anyone watched this BUM play
yesterday, you can see he's not lived up to the hype, imho. He got
beat badly yesterday by an avg DE. Time to move him back to RT
and give our boy Strief the starting nod at LT. Strief and Faneca side
to side? Guarantee you we plow into the endzone rather than get
stuffed twice on the goalline like yesterday.

Replace Mare on FG's. Keep him on kick offs and keep Gramatica. WOW did Gramatica look good yesterday. The 55 yarder could have been good from 58 easy!

HERE IS THE MUST! FIRE GARY GIBBS! He can't scheme, his defenses play TOO SOFT and there is no attitude on this defense. Time to bring in an aggressive DC to get these guys rolling. Imagine this. Even a mediocre ranked defense would make this team almost uunstoppable.
===============

Well Shanle...gone.
Simoneau....gone. Hello Simmons
Bullock......moved to OLB with some weight added.
KK......starting
R Harper.......still here, maybe bring in a FA
Mckenzie.....with an ACL tear, he will not be able to play.....Need Help
David, Thomas.......gone
U Young and Craft....possibly nickle for young, deep backup for Craft and ST
Thomas.....needs to be a back-up/rotational guy
Young....back-up
Smith and Grant....Grant to gain some weight and become our small DT...Smith...to stay.

So for defense we need. No LB's, a big DT and a DE. At least 3 corners, good FA and high Draft. FA Safety.

===

Nebit.....gone or backup.
B Brown.....go to the right tackle young man.
Evans....Hang out
Faine........um, gone.
Stinchcomb.......back-up
Brees.....um, he's the man
RB.....if Deuce is not healthy, get a big RB in FA cheap or a late Draft pick. Stecker and PT to stay and Branch to get some more looks.
Henderson....gone
Colston....you da man
Johnson and MIller....I like this combo
Bush.....time to become a flex player, mainly a WR.

So for offense we have to either have our back-ups on the line step up majorly, but I still think we look into Faneca. We need a Center bad. If Strief/Bushrod/Alleman cannot play LT we need one of those. We need someone for Deuce, I just do not see him being back to his old self.
