Re: Zach Thomas released by Dolphins!

I was a Dolphin season ticket holder from 2000-2004 (The Ricky Williams/Dave BUMstedt Experience!!) and I have to say that Zach Thomas WAS that team!! His motor never stopped, from whistle to whistle, 4 quarters. 150+ tackles a year. He was a Huge fan favorite and had great post-game interviews. This would be an excellent signing for the Black and Gold.

Re: Zach Thomas released by Dolphins!

I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up here. We've always had a tendancy to sign guys towards the tail end of their careers. However, he is better than what we currently have at MLB... wouldn't hurt to bring him in for a visit as long as he's not looking for a lot of money. I'd would also attempt to sign Dan Morgan for the vets minimum... it couldn't hurt either.

Thomas and Morgan would be great! I still hope we go after Shaun Rogers. Those three would give us a lot of flexibility in the draft.

Re: Zach Thomas released by Dolphins!

I'm all for bringing Zach Thomas to the Saints as long as the Saints understand that the defense is a great big hemorrhaging wound that loses copious amounts of blood (or yards) each week that they play. Thomas is a bandaid. The Saints need lots of gauze (Briggs) and stitches (Haynesworth).

Of course I'm generalizing but I'm sure you get my point. I think that Thomas would be a good pick up for the Saints from a leadership and high motor standpoint but if that happens, let's hope that there will be much more defensive pick ups to come.

On a side note, I hope that losing Russ Ball doesn't effect the Saints attempts at signing players this off season.

Re: Zach Thomas released by Dolphins!

Can we count on drafting Dan Conner too? If yes, then yes.
