Re: Which new player will have the biggest impact

This is a no brainer.....McCray without a doubt!! He will get after the QB on a regular basis and the secondary instantly becomes good. Other teams converting on 3rd down will soon be a thing of the past people. Bank on it!

Re: Which new player will have the biggest impact

Vilma b/c ESPN insider headlines say so. Only I'm to cheap to pay for insider so I don't know what they are saying. Can anyone who ain't cheap post the story so I can validate my support for Vilma?

Re: Which new player will have the biggest impact

all i seen on espn




VilmaJonathan Vilma, MLB, New Orleans Saints
If healthy, Vilma is exactly what the Saints need. He is ultra-competitive, tenacious and a natural leader on the field. He has great range and is a playmaker with some of the aggressive traits that have served his fellow Miami alums so well in the NFL. New Orleans did not have a defensive identity or a leader who made everyone accountable last season, but it does now with Vilma. The Saints would be wise to add another big body at defensive tackle to help protect the undersized middle linebacker, and it is still unclear how well the 25-year-old has recovered from a knee injury, but this is the type of move that can quickly turn around a defense. New Orleans has a good chance to win the NFC South next year, and Vilma is a major reason why. The Saints got better in a hurry on defense, and without pressing needs on offense they are in a position to further bolster that unit on draft day.

If he can start opening day. But I am doubting it. Morgan is our insurance policy if Vilma can not go

That is scary. So....our insurance policy for Vilma is a guy that's missed nearly half the games in his career because he's had more concussions than a crash test dummy? I think Vilma will be ready to go. Hell....I hope he'll be ready to go. I've always liked Vilma. He's got heart & good work ethic. Of course....supposedly, so does Morgan. He's just...uhmmm...brittle.

Re: Which new player will have the biggest impact

Vilma will be comeback player of the year since Brees should of been in 06'.. Pennington sucks. This would be great payback. Not that anyone cares about meaningless awards.. ha.

Talbid is the FS in round 1, IMO. Then Carlson followed by Phillips. This year draft is loaded with tweeners.

I've heard others talking about moving Talbid over, saying he'd be a good fit at FS. But I haven't watched any of his play myself, and so I can't say. I trust your read on it though.

Realistically, do you think we have a good chance of trading down? Personally, I think we're in perfect position. I know teams sometimes shy away from the top 10 picks, because of the risk associated with such costly contracts, and the massive hits to salary caps. But I think at about 10, things start to be come more manageable, teams become more willing, so we might be able to pull this trade off.

So I'm thinking -
1) trade down in the first round towards the bottom, and use that pick to get Phillips. KK stays as a backup, but Bullocks gets put on the trading block.
2) use the additional pick to get a replacement for Shanle.

Doing so would solve the two worst problems on the team (IMO), but still leave us with 2nd and 3rd rounders to draft best available talent.

Fantasy land?

can anyone help me id this tune? it goes thwap thwap boom tch boom tch boom tch.

Qui a laissez sortir les chiens!
