Former Saint Ninkovich
 
Former Saint Rob Ninkovich, now an OLB with the Pats has had a ProBowler type game tonight...

In reflecting on the decision to let Fujita walk, do you think the Saints Braintrust has a weakness in evaluating/scouting defensive talent?

Euphoria 11-13-2011 10:45 PM

No I don't think that at all.

We got some pretty good Defensive backs of late.

The only area we are struggling at is DE and OLB.

The Dude 11-13-2011 10:47 PM

NO. I think the money is being spent on offense. We have as much talent on D as we decided to spend money on. When you have a Brees to pay, a Bush, and a high paid guard to name a few that only leaves so much to spend on defense. (yes I am aware we do not still have Bush, but we were paying him until this year).

Ninkovich had some serious knee issues and Fujita wasn't worth half of what he got.

So if Fujita isn't worth what he was paid, would you extend that same criticism to Will Smith?

I would agree, ..Just when Im about to start a thread a week or two ago about how disappointed I am in Smith he had a good game.. To far few and inbetween for me. Im not a fan of Smith, I think its time for a real cap at the end.

I find Smith's stats come in bunches...and his pass rush has definitely declined...

I can see your point and agree with you here.

No not relly in theis case. We couldn't fully use his skillset in our 4-3 defence. Playing OLB in the Patriots 3-4 is a whole lot different.

Is someone getting giddy over Rob Ninkovich who starts on the worst defensive in the NFL and played against one of the worst offenses in the NFL? I'm sure he'd a make a world of a difference here.

Hey, I got an interception and I play for the New England Patriots! I'm good! Hey "Saints Braintrust", you guys are idiots! You must be regretting that decision everyday... even after you won your Superbowl while I've been bouncing around the league.
