Disagree 100%. Since our WR corps is a position of excess, I'd much rather have the Lance Moore equivalent at WLB, SLB, DT, or DE.

I think we can get by just fine with Colston, Henderson, and Meachem as our top 3 WR's.

Again, only if keeping him costs us at other positions, which it probably won't.

Exactly. We got by the majority of the season without him. I like Lance Moore and wouldn't mind keeping him, but he has become expendable with Devery solidifying himself as an all-around threat and the emergence of Robert Meachem. I still want to see what Adrian Arrington has to offer, as well. If other positions can be upgraded by losing Moore, I would rather us go that route.

Yep, but the main point is expendable "if necessary".

We don't have a guy that makes that two point conversion as he did... he's our Wes Welker. SP called his number for a reason on that play. We can package a couple of our good prospects to those said WLB, SLB, DT, or DE. There are quite a few teams in dire need of WR help!

reps...I've been wanting to say this for the last 2 days.

edit...(nevermind on those reps...said I got to spread them around first)

He appears to be toning down the celebrating a bit, too, which I personally am in favor of.

Yes we do. Colston, Henderson and Meachem can all catch that pass. And PT and Bush are all excellent pass catchers out of the backfield. And Shockey and Thomas can catch pretty well themselves.

Re: Should the Saints pay Lance Moore?

It all depends on what he's looking for. If someone is willing to overpay for him, then let him walk. Now while he has great hands and does a great job running routes, he's had one good season. So based on production, he should be affordable where that he'll re-sign... though I don't think he should get more than Devery.

Re: Should the Saints pay Lance Moore?

When you're upset about something, you seek out comfort food. When the defense is harassing the QB and isn't giving the WR's much, you seek out a comfort receiver. That describes Moore. We need a receiver like that, and Moore is the only one on the team. Every team also needs a few special players with great hands. Pierre is the only other player with hands like Moore. If he's replaced, it needs to be with someone who has great hands, runs great routes, has a great rapport with Drew, and who Payton has great confidence in. There's nobody like that on the radar, but are they grooming Matt Simon for that role?

I'm not comfortable with the current WR situation. We need to carry 1 more so we won't have any untested WR's on the squad (like Arrington). If more than 1 WR gets tweaked, that forces Robey into the mix, and I'm not comfortable with him.

Re: Should the Saints pay Lance Moore?

Decisions, Decisions! Yes Moore is a very good clutch receiver who will move the chains on 3rd down. He has a different skill set from the others. I would like to see him stay with The Saints, but I guess I don't want to see any of my Super Bowl 44 winning team leave. I want the magic to continue forever, cause I waited forever for it to start. They all have great chemistry and no big egos, but I know it's football. I guess we'll have to let ML and SP make the decision for us.
