Asante to Saints a "done deal"

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; That's not what I've been hearing. I hope it's true though. Even if he has benefitted from the "system", he still has 16 INTs over the last two seasons. Also, if he worked so well in that system, maybe we ...

That's not what I've been hearing. I hope it's true though. Even if he has benefitted from the "system", he still has 16 INTs over the last two seasons. Also, if he worked so well in that system, maybe we should just adopt that system. Eh?

Re: Asante to Saints a "done deal"

I would like to use Green Bay's defense as a reference point. They signed Woodson from Oakland, and have Harris on the other side, but they got most of their picks, and defenses, because they had Hawk in the middle of the field, backing up the D line. For any of these secondary stars to have any effect, we HAVE to get a stud MLB, to give them those opportunities. I will also use Urlacher, and the Bears as a reference as well. Hawk, and Urlacher both have sideline to sideline speed, and are tackling machines. Our lbs are so subpar, that we have to bring up the safeties, to watch their back.

MLB, and CB, are definately the two biggest weaknesses on defense. Hopefully, we can get a CB, and a MLB in FA, that way, we can take a ball hawk safety in the first round. At least, that's the way I would play it.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

Re: Asante to Saints a "done deal"

He is good BUT he is no Champ and should not get paid more than him. This is like Clements last year. Just because he is the best of the FA does not mean he should set a new record for salary. Sorry but I would pass more on the dollar amount than anything to do with his play. 8 million yes.
I would rather go down the long road of youth in the draft, If we do well so be it.

Re: Asante to Saints a "done deal"

The only thing that really scares me about signing Samuels is that if you thought David aka Toast got targeted by opposing QB's last season just wait. As with Samuels on one side and David on the other your gonna see bombs rain down on Toast like a September rain all season long... His signing will only make our real weakness at CB even more critical.

Re: Asante to Saints a "done deal"

If we get Samuel and Cromartie falls into the 2nd round I would like to see us still draft him. I do, however, think that this clears us up to take a DT or LB, so if Ellis or Dorsey falls for whatever reason(Ellis made zero impressions at the combine and Dorsey was in the medical room throughout) then we can snag one or the other. Then we can wait for the 3rd or 4th round to pick up Woodard from kentuky
