You guys act like these guys don't know the system but I beg to differ they totally get the system. They are profession DB's. Williams makes adjustments each week based on who we are playing.

Gibbs system was a broke pop warner system. MM and CM know how to man up, where to be what to do in situations. They fit Williams system far better than Gibbs broke system.

I agree. I know MM knows what's going on. Only reason he was let loose was recovery from the knee injury early on.

I remember when he first showed up from Green Bay and didn't know our system, he was the only playmaker out there at that time. Mike is a very strong NFL cornerback. Solid player all around. Was all we had the past 2 years.

Re: Saints Sign Mike McKenzie

You saw MM frustration with our safties not giving him help over the top and not taking the angles they were suppose to. I feel sorry for the guy. I felt like he was the only one who got it, obviously Gibbs didn't get it.

Now pair MM up with A DC and Safties who know what they are doing and where to be... Get the F out of here! This game is over before its played, lets hope what MM is ready and injury is healed like they are saying.

I don't know if they actually held CM out for the Bucs game on purpose. You give the Pats tells and what to expect in the secondary. We didn't need him to win so sit him. Sure he may not have been in game shape but he's a pro and had been preparing to play!!! Something tells me there is more to that story. Saints may have been preparing for this game.

Re: Saints Sign Mike McKenzie

MM is 33yrs old now with at least 2 major knee injuries, but I'm sure he was worked out and passed the physical or else they wouldn't have signed him. right?

Hi New guy here. I think we will see CM in nickel but I wouldn't expect to see MM until the Skins game if he's needed.

My guess is McCalister will play if needed and McKenzie will only play in an emergency situation

Re: Saints Sign Mike McKenzie

The latest:
Saints placed CB Leigh Torrence on injured reserve with a separated shoulder, ending his season.

Torrence, the Saints' No. 5 cornerback for most of the season, finishes up with 10 tackles and a half sack. The 27-year-old old is a favorite of defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, but the Saints' increased CB depth will put Torrence on the roster bubble if he's retained in restricted free agency.

Re: Saints Sign Mike McKenzie

Don't have to worry about his knees. I don't think he will be playing much man to man and with CMac and Sharper in the secondary that's ALOT of experience in the secondary. I like it alot.
