this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I decided to abstain, because my feeling wasn't listed. No: because he'll cost too much in picks/players and any offensive improvement will in fact be marginal. We're already a top 3 offense in the league. Last time I checked, the ...

We're already a top 3 offense in the league.

Last time I checked, the #1 offense from the last two years, including the best offense in the history of the game last year, did not in fact win the SB.

The sig is a reminder of what we really need to do.

..funny, neither did the #1 defense.. balance, that's what's all about..

...as for Shockey, you and ScottF made good points... however, I just don't like Johnson. He looks awkward out there, and seems that every timet anyone hits him he's going to break. I like Miller better than Johnson.

I voted either way Geaux Saints. I know if I would have said screw him, he probably would have came out like a beast and took us to the superbowl then I would be a total hypocrate

Re: for or against shockey??

I believe Shockey is still one of the premier tight ends in the league and agree with Merces. Something about Johnson does not add up. Johnson at times appears to have really soft hands but cannot avoid being clobbered. Everytime He gets hit I expect to see the ball pop out or for Him to stay down. I think some kind of trade needs to be worked out for an active roster player ( Maybe Stecker and David Ha!) and a high round draft choice. LOOMIS PLEASE DO NOT PULL ANOTHER MIKE DITKA ON US. Most everyone believes DEFENSE is our priority and I also feel we need another back (Forte) but that would be the only offensive player I would take. Defense has to compliment the offense. the old saying still rings true DEFENSE wins SUPERBOWLS

Why not make a move on a guy like LJ Smith or Kellen Winslow?
umm. he is a perfect fit for this team. Brees made Gates look like a god in SD. if we made a move it sure wouldn't be for LJ Smith, maybe Winslow(who happens to be the same type of player as shockey) but not LJ.

Re: for or against shockey??

Shockey and Johnson were impressive when they faced each other in the playoffs in 2003.. I can't imagine both on the same team in the playoffs this season. I'm not for or against getting Shockey.. I just don't want to lose all our picks in the mid rounds, bc I believe there is great value in the draft after round one.
