i am so sick of the saints spending millions...

on unproven and average players.....
take those millions and get guys in here that are young, proven, and hungry. what kind of salary cap hit do we take to unload some of these guys? hagan, if you have the charts, minus a few, take your pick, and tell us where we would stand without them....i want guys with fire in their eyes and give it all they've got every down.......give me 10 gleasons playing at different positions and we're in the s.b. who have we spent good money on that have panned out, and more importantly, who have we spent average money on that have panned out? and here is a better question........the last top 20 picks in the 2007 draft, who have emerged to produce? and don't tell me it takes 3 yrs, some of them are starters and doing quite well.....
my point is, someone has to do the research and at least get someone in here to start the first yr out of the top twenty, i mean, hell, get someone in here who can find these guys if we don't have the right staff...
start at the top and work your way down and clean house the right way.
basically, DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i already know bush produced somewhat, but at what cost?
and yes i know he was'nt in 2007 and yes i know we did not have a top 20 pick in 2007, but we have one now...................

I agree. Intead of signing Playmakers, we seem to always sign victims.

it's like shopping yard sales, when others are shopping new products with warranties.

It's as if, they knew that their free-agent signings were band-aids, while what we really need is surgery.
