Good call saintpaul. but do not look a the safeties in the draft for playmaking at 10. Look at the CB for that. They got some really good CB/S ballhawkers in this draft. Talbid is my choice in round one.
Reggie Smith, Oklahoma in round 2
Patrick Lee, Auburn in round 3
Dwight Lowery, San Jose State in round 4
Darnell Terrell, Missouri in round 5

Thats what you do with slower CB is move them to safety. The FS class is pretty weak this year as a whole but there are a couple of good projects among the group in the later rounds.

Keep bringing them in brother. Load the boat with D players and see how we can play them.

I doubt that sales of that jersey would be very high.

Now if he got traded to San Francisco, that would be another thing altogether! (Sales would triple if he was double slotted as a split end!)

Sorry. It was just too easy guys!

One of our safeties, MANY problems is, that they seem to get lost in coverage, and that is the biggest problem a safety can have. Even with pressure up front, if the safeties aren't covering the routes, then it's six points the other way. As I said before, there isn't a position on defense that doesn't need a significant upgrade, other than DE. I'm sticking to that. Can we just have a whole new deck please? : )
Or Fagg like that kid from Florida State.

Gee, sounds a lot like Jason David.
Nope it's GAY.

I am not on board.
This is a mistake
Here's an idea...
DRAFT a CB

I am getting sick and tired of this game...
WE'VE ONLY DRAFTED A CB IN THE FIRST ROUND ONE TIME!!!!
LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES
You got that wrong.
Jason David did NOT come from a good program. In fact, the Colts defense was notoriously bad for 2-3 years, until those 2 playoff games in 2006.

Re: Saints sign Gay!

Afterthought…

I’m not saying the guy can’t play but lets get real he is average and at this position the Saints don’t need average we need a caliber of player that is amazing or even incredible
I don’t care what he was ranked at on some website he simply didn’t perform to his pay class last year and that’s why he was a FA this year

All I am trying to point out here is that that money could have been better spent

Read the pats bio of him:

Sounds like reserve/nickel to them, starter for us?

Gay heads home with a $17m deal

Still, Elias said Gay was sad to leave the Patriots and credited the team for helping the cornerback cash in because of the way it developed and deployed him during his four seasons in New England. The agent stressed there were no hard feelings with the Patriots and said Gay parted with coach Bill Belichick and the team on good terms.
