The Villains Free Agency Rant thread

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I do like Evans, but I agree if you have a chance at a battering ram like Vickers (reminds me of Iron Head) you have to take a serious look at a position upgrade. Reggie, Later bro, have fun in ...

Reggie, Later bro, have fun in Miami when Kim K comes to see you. You did good things in your time here, but he was not consistant (except being injured)
Shanle should have been cut last year. I haven't liked him for years
As long as Brees is comfortable with JS thats fine
Harper is a solid SS, but always should be looking for a possible upgrade.

If you don't know, now you you know.......

Marlboro Man doesn't even smoke anymore... what does he know.

In any case, We shall see what Harper signs for. Do you really think we could sign somebody better for less? If we in fact can, then I be stupid to not be on board. Harper is a "B" type player who is always on the verge of being an All Pro type player.

The only up grade to Harper in FA right now is Landry. Harper is going to get signed back. The dude went to two Pro-bowls, in the last two years.


The great thing about GW is he knows how to use what he has. Harper great at blitz and tackling...that's what he is there for.

Porter cant tackle for his life, but he is good in coverage.

Its very very very hard to find an all around player for every position.

Even the patriots have weak spots on the D, but there good because they know how to use them.

If you want a D that every position on the field has the best player...play madden. It does not happen in real life.

Could he be up-graded yes, but so could alot of players on the saints because there is always someone better. Harper is a top 10 Strong Safety in the league.

Last two years: Combined tackles 200 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 13 pass deflections, 1 INT, 8 Forced fumbles.

now lets compare to Troy Polamalu over the last two years (Using 2010 and 2008; he was hurt for most of 2009) Combined tackles 136, 1 Sack, 28 Pass deflections, 14 INT,1 Forced fumble. (this guy is a future hall of fame player)

Harper is not that far off. You can make bad and great highlight reels...but I got the stats.
