So basically here\'s what we needed when Haslett took over.

1. Quarterback.
2. Running back.( Rickey had to go.)
3. #1 receiver
4. # 2 receiver.
5. tightend.
6. 1 offesive lineman.
7. Back up running back.
8. left cornerback
9. right cornerback.
10. Free Saftey.
11. Strong saftey.
12. Middle Linebacker.
13. Weakside Linebacker.
14. Defensive End.
15. Defensive Tackle.
16. Kick Returner.


That\'s 16 players off the top of my head that we needed when he took over a 3-13 club. I\'m sure I could think of more. You see mistakes and I do too. But to think there would be no mistakes is unreasonable.

OK, not to nit-pick here but, huh?

The guy who lead the league in rushing last year NEEDED to go when Haslett took over? Didn\'t he run for 1000 yards in ten games in haslett\'s first season?

Knight wasn\'t a good enough safety? A PRO BOWLER wasn\'t good enough? Then why did they make him the cornerstone of the defense last season? Defensive tackle? Kick returner? Chad Morton wasn\'t a good enough kick returner?

I dunno about that list - and let\'s try to remember that we\'re talking about THIS offseason, not the last three.

WhoDat -- Absolutely Ricky Williams needed to go. He was only slightly better than average when he was with the Saints. He was more of a distraction than anything else. He turned it around last year in Miami -- Good for him -- But he needed to go.

I\'ll give you Sammy Knight and Chad Morton. They were good players.

Fact is he still had a big rebuilding job.

Agreed about the last part - and maybe Ricky did need the change of scenery to step it up like he did, but 1000 yards in 10 games?? C\'mon. Hilliard was the last guy to rush for 1000 before ricky if I\'m not mistaken. The guy did it in 10 games! Yes, he never lived up to the hype here but I don\'t know if I\'d say he NEEDED to go. In any case, we\'ll see what Sullivan does and then decide if it worked out to our advantage or not.

Come on guys give Ricky a break. He had a personality disorder that was diagnosed after he moved to Miami. Now on proper medication he is more the person he and everybody else wants to be. That\'s why he\'s better in Miami. At least I think so.
