Our Saints just keep getting better!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Grubbs coming to the Saints takes a good guard and makes him better once Brees rejoins the team... It's kinda like my kid's video game - she's got this bad @$$ character that finds a magic hat and the hit ...

Grubbs coming to the Saints takes a good guard and makes him better once Brees rejoins the team...

It's kinda like my kid's video game - she's got this bad @$$ character that finds a magic hat and the hit points and damage points geaux up 50%...

Brees is magic...

Stocking a team with FAs never works. The Saints have done well with their FA's but they also have a good mix of players they build on which is critical if you want to have a good team. I'm glad the Saints don't have a lot of cap room. Too much means a team is rebuilding which doesn't happen in a sytem like the Saints. Tampa is signing a lot of good players but the odds of that creating more W's is not in their favor.

We haven't lost a step so far. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

We only replaced a G with a G for.
True, we haven't upgraded a single position... yet.

I do have faith that it will happen though.

But the Saints haven't de-graded either.

IMO, Ben Grubbs in New Orleans will be more effective than Carl Nicks in Tampa.

One position the Saints ugraded tremendously was DC!!

I think that will go down as the biggest new addition of the whole off-season!

we won't really know if there's a playoff contender here until we see a defensive signing.

Funny My wife and I had a discussion yesterday after Megatron signed his deal over dinner with family here in Houston. She is a football fan, but more fanatic than enthusist. I told her I would trade two of Brees for one of Calvin Johnson, she immdiately replied with her hard NO accent and best " you trader" voice Hmm who gon throw em the ball then, to which i replied I can go get Ryan Leaf to come out of retirement take two step drops and hoist that "bi#$%" up to Megatron. My sister and law who is also a diehard saints fan was in the middle of drinking her Zinfindel and it came flying out she was laughing so hard I think Zinfindel actually came out of her nose!!!! I said that all to say we are admirers of you guys progress as well as our own, let's toast to franchises that have come a mighty long way, but not with Zinfindel, I'll take a light beer!!!

However, we have never been run by Matt Millen...but we don't have to live in or near Detroit...but we do have to deal with cap issues and stupid bounty crap....

I guess it all sort of evens out in the end.
