I wouldn't watch the draft then. I know we have problems at TE (i.e. we don't have one), at WR (i.e. we have only one), and at RB (i.e. We may have a bunch, we may have none - no one is sure) and I judge from Payton's coaching this past two years that he thinks of offensive problems first. I can imagine him thinking,

"If we only had a receiving threat to split the zone coverage we have so much trouble with, we'd be there! Oh look over there, a Tight End who can catch and block!"

I might shoot myself as well.....

Re: Players Saints looking at

If the Saints keep Eric Johnson at TE they'll ne fine. And a healthy Mark Campbell is a benefactor for this offense. Billy Miller has proved to be a good fill in guy too. Tight end is fine. Focus on the defense.

The Saints are fine at RB too. I'd hate to beat a dead horse so I'll simply list the RB's and leave the RB topic alone. Deuce McAllister, Reggie Bush, Aaron Stecker, Pierre Thomas, Jamaal Branch, Mike Karney. Shoot, Kevin Dudley impressed the heck out of me in the 2007 pre-season. The offense backfield for the Saints is very good. Focus on the defense.

The WR position is fine also. I'm eager to see what Meachem can do for the Saints this year. Bring Patten and a healthy Copper back and get rid of Henderson! This isn't a great WR group but the Saints must focus on the defense.

E Johnson can't catch. And the Saints are far from fine at RB. Too many unknowns headed into the year... Deuce and Reggie's durability issues, PT's limited experience and Stecker is not the bruiser Deuce once was.

WR is far from fine as well. Colston is our only solid player and he's been injury prone as well. Patten fills in nicely on occasion, but is nowhere near a #1. I won't speak of Meach until he plays in real games. Copper & Moore are still up in the air and you're right, Henderson needs to go.

So, while the Saints "focus" on defense, they need to continue to build on the offense. I hope to see this accomplished in free agency too.

Re: Players Saints looking at

Granted, we have some ?'s on offense, but you have to admit the defense was as porous my screen porch after Katrina. We had no pass rush at all with our front four, refused to dog the backers or blitz and got burned in deep on every third and long. The defense must be re-built from the ground up first.

Re: Players Saints looking at

what does it mean that we 'looked' at about 20 players and these other teams are only looking at 1-2?

Re: Players Saints looking at

I think the Pats "looked at Chad Henne on another day" so there's really not a lot to these notes.
If you really believe it though,
I saw that they looked at a few OL and TE's
and DE's, S, CB, and LB's

Absolutely papz, Royal is a player. I wouldn't mind seeing him get picked at the end of the first day or beginning of the second day.

I watched the cat yesterday, and am VERY IMPRESSED. This guy is my hopeful draft pick. Or should I say "Diamond in the Ruff".
