*Suspended, does not count against roster max of 53

A few surprises:

- Adrian Arrington, would you buy my lottery ticket?

- Only two (2) Tight Ends; wow, really?

- Conversely, kept two (2) Fullbacks; commitment to running game?

- Ramon Humber definitely has that special teams edge; good for him.

- Saints' small school love goes out to Fordham's Isa Abdul Quddus

- So when Hartley gets healthy, then Ivory, is there a kickoff for kicker?

- And who goes when Smith gets out the penalty box?

- Got to have a de la Puente shirt at the B&G Store on Vets, right?

- the de la Puente shirt can go with my Guido Merkins old school jersey...

Sorry Danno, I'm in the camp that Harper is a liability in pass coverage no matter how many game balls he gets from "GW"...

The occasional blitz-sacks or strips are great; but a strong safety needs to be able to provide the basic required skills - solid coverage and enforcement hitting...

All positions should be looked at for improvement...

Now, I knew putting it first would spark debate; I like a healthy discussion...

Truthfully, by far Offensive Tackle and Outside Linebacker are most in need of upgrade - especially with an injury at either position creating a precipitous situation for the team; a team that is very capable of another championship...

I've seen enough of Harper's game to know that we could do better and that he was seriously overpaid in guranteed money the past offseason...

Now, I've been very critical of Will Smith in the past and he's finally elevated his game to be commensurate to his contract; as a Saint fan, I expect Harper to do the same or find his immediate replacement...

As far as "priority" goes, replacing a pro-bowl safety in the 1st year of a 4 year contract is not exactly a priority.

These are the positions that I'd consider a priority...
DT - Yes (Rogers and Franklin are free agents next year)
WLB - Yes (but hopefully Casillas is the answer)
SLB - Yes (but hopefully Wilson is the answer)
LT - Yes
RT - Yes
PK - Yes
DE - Maybe (Will Smith isn't getting any younger)

But...
SS - No
FS - No
CB - No
MLB - No
QB - No
WR - No
OC - No
OG - No
TE - No
FB - No
P - Hell No

As I said Offensive Tackle and Linebacker are the two biggest "needs" on this team...

While Bushrod and Streif look to be capable professional football players - their play or positions could use improvement...

I think all the Linebacker positions should be closely scrutinized; with the exception of Dunbar, who's not a full-time player, we don't have anyone in the corps whose hits make opposing teams "hear the footsteps"

On the issue of Defensive End and Will Smith's age, I'd agree; we don't know that Cam Jordan can produce nor what we have in Greg Romeus, but I like the picks made...

And I don't buy into Loomis Cool-aid; personnel mistakes have been made and I'm not comfortable with Harper's past coverage play for another four years; that's why Strong Safety as all positions should be scouted...

You should buy into the Loomis Cool-aid. 3 playoff appearances, a Superbowl ring, and a NFL executive of the Year award. Clearly he's doing something right. Just because our strong safeties strong suit isn't in coverage, doesn't make Loomis an idiot(I think you've said that before if I remember correctly). If GM's had to hang their hat on the SS being excellent coverage guys, the majority of them would be out of a job.

We're getting ready for the 2012 draft already? Gotta go with a tackle in the second round...no doubt.
