Lawyer Milloy Released!!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; First off - I will remember these quotes: 1. \"If they do not make every effort in the world to sign Milloy, I will be jumping on the boat with FWtex.\" Yeah, but, I was only joking. If they don\'t ...

Yeah, but, I was only joking. If they don\'t sign him, I will be disappointed, but I won\'t be calling into question their commitment to win. Considering how agressive the Saints have been over the years at pursuing players, to me, that would be rediculous.

Think what you will Billy - I think it is ridiculous that we passed on a guy like Claiborne and took Ruff - difference in salary was 500K. I think it\'s ridiculous that we traded away two first round picks for one player and went with so many offensive players in the draft when our DEFENSE had so many needs. I think it is ridiculous that we allowed Pro Bowlers like Roaf, Glover, Johnson, Knight, and other solid players like Turley and Clemons go leave... or let it get to the point where they had to go just to alleviate the situation. Put Glover, Johnson, Knight, and Clemons (at OLB) back on this team right now and you\'ve got yourself 15 or 20 sacks, maybe more, and 200 tackles. Instead we\'ve got an injured second year player, rookie, back-up to an injured second-year player, and Clemon\'s backup from last year in those spots. That\'s ridiculous.

Please!! Out of all of those players the only one who would make a difference is Glover and he is a liability against the run. Joe Johnson isn\'t even playing this year and has drug and legal problems. Charlie Cleamons is average at best. Sammy Knight might have had impressive stats, but he was picked on all year long. The stats just weren\'t worth the risk.

The Bills have made a contract offer to Milloy.

http://www.kffl.com/hotw/nfl



ESPN.com is saying that the Bills , have already started negotiating with Milloy\'s agent.

Not to mention, Roaf, Glover, and Johnson would have been about 30 Million dollars. Those 3 alone would have meant a Bellamy type player at just about every other postion, and we\'d be in salary cap hell.

Even Len P gave us props for letting those 3 go and listed about 7 or 8 palyers on our team now that we never could have gotten if we kept them. Charles Grant, LeCharles Bentley, Spenser Folau, Kendal Jacox, Grady Jackson, etc.

The Saints have been aggressive at pursuing \"diamonds in the rough\". Even if they are high priced free agents, they seem to be people that have yet to reach potential. Granted, Claiborne would have been one of those, but they blantantly ignore the Pro Bowl players for potential Pro Bowl players.

It would be nice to see them going after a currently elite player.

That was my favorite quote. Yeah, he was no better than average at MLB. But it\'s easy to forget that he was moved from the outside, where he put up very good numbers. We\'ll see how he does in Houston\'s 3-4 this year.
All you ranters, better be ready to be disappointed. Odds are, we won\'t even lift an eyebrow towards Milloy.

Charlie Clemons led the Saints in tackles and sacks in 01 as an OLB. Knight led the team in tackles last year and was second in \'01 - he also led in INTs both years I believe. That\'s 200 tackles, 15 sacks, and 5 or 6 INTs right there. La\'Roi Glover went to the Pro Bowl last season. Johnson had no problems in N.O. and the CURRENT coaching staff was surprised and disappointed to see him go. So the coaches are wrong Billy?

I\'d bet that you would be all over Glover if we were trying to sign him and he hadn\'t ever been a Saint. Now that he\'s gone you\'re mighty confident that he was wrong for this team. Same is true with Turley, Roaf, Clemons, Knight - Pro Bowl caliber players. So let me ask you this Billy - who is the liability on our team this year? I just want to know now - b/c you\'re preaching about how this defense looks so good on paper, and how the coaching staff made all the right moves. But what happens in January when they cut players b/c of these types of problems. Will they be scapegoats, or problems all along? And if they are problems then, why aren\'t they problems now? So tell me Billy, who are our problem players - our weak links - that you will be happy to see go after this season?

.

Cleamons has been in the league for how long? How many good seasons has he had? Now he might go to the Hall of Fame, but so far he has had an average career at best.

Odds are we won\'t? Where exactly would you place our odd?
