Re: Does it worry any of you about Saints Org Poker face after a Superbowl win?

When you win a Superbowl, teams start overpaying for the players you had. That's the nature of the game. Am I worried about us low balling our own players? Who says we're low balling?

I'll ask my own set of questions...

Would you re-sign Fujita at the expense of giving Evans a new contract?

Would you re-sign Fujita at the expense of giving Brees an extension?

Would you re-sign Fujita at the expense of re-signing Pierre Thomas?

There are plenty of other priorities that need to be taken care of first. If other teams are willing to overpay for our players, power to them and whoever signs elsewhere. They got their ring... it's time for them to cash in.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

i feel all's concern. we have to trust the upper management who got us here. fujita is not worth the 5 mil. guys. he was out this year for a few games that we made it o.k. without him in the huddle. we have drew, p.t. etc. to put in the mix. it really does bother me to. we are losing some quality back ups.

We have nothing to worry about. When the dust settles sharper will be a saint again. Grant, MCcRAY i think is better. If you looked at stats alone FUjita only had 58 tackles and 1 sack last YEAR.

It's like this, Fujita is a decent linebacker, but not worth resigning for that price. To make our dynasty, we have to upgrade on defense. Letting some of these fan favorites go is smart management for our team if they're not producing. Some are past their prime, not productive anymore, and overpaid. Look at deuce, all time great Saints running back, but it was time. If we get right at outside linebacker, end, and D tackle, we're good. Even if you lose Sharper, if you have a great pass rush it wouldn't matter. It would still be nice to have Sharper around to mentor Jenkins. With Porter and Greer at corner, Jenkins had better be making the move to safety, soon.
