Julio is a great kid. He played HS football right down the street from me.

I don't like them on a rivalry level, but I respect them and what they've done.
They aren't opening up a damn thing until they get a QB. Right now they have a glorified (media) bus driver. We've seen how far 'skid britches' (thanks again Hulka) can take them. That's it. There is no more.

Somewhat better, but I sense restraint. Pretend your a republican candidate at a debate: red meat for everyone!

I wonder if we are really going to miss Vilma. I wonder if our o-line will realize it hurts less to hit first. I wonder if Brees will look before throwing the check down. I wonder if, three years together, our front seven can pronounce "cutback." Does 3rd and 10+ mean DBs play 12 yards off the receiver? Will any defensive signal mean "man" to some and "zone" to others. Will the refs pay attention, or will white and jones escape drawing pass interference calls when pushing off the defender. Will payton show the imagination of bread mold in the red zone.

All very good questions. I especially liked the bread mold one.

Julio is a great kid. He played HS football right down the street from me.

I don't like them on a rivalry level, but I respect them and what they've done.

I'm not questioning their work overall, because I do agree with you that they've build a very good team while overcoming some very difficult obstacles in the process (f.e. Vick), but I do think that it was a serious miscalculation to basically give up their whole draft for just one player, because they had many other holes to fill also.

And Dimitroff himself said in an interview on draft day that they chose this approach because Foolio was the one player in the draft who they felt would make their offense complete and allow Matty Lice to have the option of stretching the field, which had been one of the bigger criticisms made against the Failclowns offense over the past couple of seasons... and I guess they saw it as one of the bigger reasons to why they went down in the playoffs last time around.

Trading away your whole draft for one single player is a gamble at the best of times, and it usually doesn't really work out... a concept the Saints' fans are more than familiar with.

And we know all about trading your whole draft for one player
