Wut he wuz say'n is that he is 100% body whise & that it's rested up good & that his knee was the only part that wase'nt, but wut he meen's by that is that since he had surgery on it awhile back that it was the only problem he had since last season... His knee is 110%, nuthing 2 worry about... Not 2 mention, we all know one thing, if his knee was not healed or or anything like that, then coach Payton NEVER would have signed him... He's healthy & ready 2 go... I expect him 2 play a bit this week in Tampa. Im willing 2 bet they wont let Greer play just play it safe & make sure he's good 2 go against NE... Look for Greer starting & McAlister on the other side against MOSS... He alway's covered Moss whenever they played & surprisingly kept him in check!!!
GEAUX SAINT'S!!!
Didn't McAllister always cover the weak side? He's in for Porter with Gay at Greer's spot right? That would be like MM switching sides...not sure if it would work. Should be CM.DS.RH.RG in the secondary this week or maybe Young will stay in this week at FS?

When you've had knee injuries and you come back from a layoff, it takes a while to get the knee adjusted. It's probably soar from workouts and stuff.

McAlister makes sense to me. He feels good all over, just his knee is ****** up. Wait till youre in your 40's. It will make perfect sense.
I feel great. My body's just ****** up.

Just sounds like he's been playing football to me.
Allow me to fix that for you, in a Shakespearean parlance ....

To Play, or Not To Play ...... That is the Question:
Whether it's nobler in the mind to keep blowing teams out,
The slings and arrows of the outrageous Breesus,
Or to take interceptions against a sea of really bad quarterbacks,
And by opposing end them? To win, to win big;
No more; and by two touchdowns to say we win and end
The heartache of Saints Fans and thousands of naturally shocked Viking Fans,
That flesh is heir to, it's a Superbowl Win
Devoutly to be wished; to win, to win big;
To win, perchance to visualize it; ay, there's the rub;
For in that win of the Superbowl
When we have stuffed the living daylights out of the Vikings,
Must give us pause; there is the respect of the raucus Vikings fans,
That makes the Saints the Gods of the NFL;
For those who would hear the whiners and bear the frowners,
The referees are wrong, and Sean Payton is right,
The pangs of a defeated opponent, upon further review,
The insolence of the Viking fans and their blown groceries,
That patient merit of these O Holy Saints,
When Breesus himself might his quietus make,
With his bare hands? Who would dare challenge,
The grunt and sweat of Vilma and Sharper,
But that the dread of getting beaten by two touchdowns,
The undiscovered country that is our endzone by our opponents,
No Wide Receivers allowed, puzzled they will be,
And makes us win real big the Superbowl,
To the amazement of others that we not know of?
Thus conscience does make referees love us;
And thus the natural born winners and champions,
Sicklied o'er with the pale cast of going for the jugular,
And enterprises of great pith and moment,
With great regard Roger Goodell hands us the trophy,
And lose forevermore the paper bags; Burn paper, burn.
The fair Golden Football! Beautiful it is in our hands,
All Saints sins forgiven and forgotten.

Re: Chris McAlister wasn’t sure he wanted to play in the NFL

McAlister said he expects to catch on to the Saints’ scheme quickly, given that defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, like former Baltimore coordinator Rex Ryan, were both disciples of Ryan’s father, Buddy Ryan.

“They do the same thing,” McAlister said. “There’s just terminology difference.”

They may have similar coaching styles but I doubt very seriously that the two "do the same thing". Rex Ryan is a good coordinator but I don't think that he and Williams are even in the same league. Regardless I hope that the systems are similar enough to get good use out of McAlister quickly.

[QUOTE=Tobias-Reiper;177681].. what I wanna know, is how do they do that
deep, eloquent, booming voice, while wearing them little bitty britches.

I'm glad I live in modern times when we have bluejeans. I'd never go outside
in that era.

Re: Chris McAlister wasn’t sure he wanted to play in the NFL

Who knows, he could be another diamond in the rough like Sharp. It would be so great if he came in and had his best year ever. I hope he gets lots of playing time this Sunday because I cant stand to see Gay get burnt anymore. Every time the ball is thrown Gay's way I want to throw up.
