And, at what point during his tenure on IR was he healthy?

So, you are saying that none of our backup linebackers are as good as a guy who can't play?

I can just imagine Canton as the head coach of the Saints.


DC: We need to put in our backup LB.

Canton: Well, they aren't as good as Simoneau.

DC: But Simoneau is on IR Coach.

Canton: Yeah, sure we can't play him?

DC: Yeah Coach, pretty sure we can't play the guy on IR.

Canton: Okay, screw it. Lets just run with 10 on defense. Same difference anyway.

DC: *BANG*


If only I could start a poll, we could make this a solve-it-yourself mystery. Did the DC commit Suicide or Murder?

Watching him play while he as on IR? Was he still running circles around everyone else while he was paying on IR?

No, it's like saying that last year Jermon Bushrod was a better tackle than Jammal Brown , because he played.

Which is a true statement.

Re: And they are back to doubting us...

As if they ever liked us to begin with, hell from the 8-8 season before we became the champs we didn't even like us. Peyton was considering realeasing Fujita and Shanle in favor of now retired Simenou and Derek Brooks. Now Fujita is highly overpaid and living it up with Lebron let's hope the king likes him or it's off to New York for him ( Braylon Edwards ). Seriously though this type of article fuels guys like Sean Peyton and Drew Brees. Is Clayton smoking something, the only thing that is keeping us from a division title reapeat is air, oppurtunity and a video game curse. Once we get out playoff spot there's only a couple of teams that can derail the Saints train two reside in the same division, Minnesota, and Green Bay, and if Farve doesn't come back or Rodgers offensive line doesn't hold up all bets are off and the other is Dallas but as in every year for about 10 years now they wont be able to get out of there own way so tell that guy who looks like a wayward sparrow looking for worms to chew on to punch my ticket to North Texas

If Saints make it back to the Championship in the next 3 years i think ESPN will just sell their company and seek something else to do, i know they hate when Saints make them look foolish each year.

Re: And they are back to doubting us...

Most of the clowns from the 4 letter network are just trying to gin up ratings, so they say ridiculous stuff. IMO if you want to really know whats going on with the NFL as a whole, you need to get a Sirius radio and tune in to thier NFL channel, 124. The Sirius Blitz and Moving the Chains are the 2 best shows and these guys really know their stuff.

Re: And they are back to doubting us...

I just try to watch NFL Channel. Their afternoon program pretty much covers all of the bases, when it comes to important off season moves, injuries, whatever. What I don't see on there, I read here. Because in all honesty, the Saints are my team, and I don't care if the Seahawks signed a back up DT yesterday. If it ain't the Saints, I don't give a damn. But I'm speaking for myself.
