Our Saints just keep getting better!
 
I understand how other teams/fans, (media), hate the Saints so much!

Saints sign a battered QB that 31 other teams weren't interested and turn him into an NFL record-shattering machine!

The Saints lose Reggie Bush and sign Darren Sproles!!

The Saints lose Carl Nicks and sign Ben Grubbs!

And the Super Bowl is being played in New Orleans this year and the Saints are poised to make history again!!

Proof that good decisions make a better team than good players.

Dallas - went out and bought good players.... see where they are now.
Eagles did the same thing...

IDK, I don't really hate the Saints so much, :mrgreen: ... gotta' hand it to your front office on the Nicks/Grubbs thing, great example of how to keep pace with player turnover in today's NFL.

Yeah, you guys understand me, :grin:, and I do feel a sort of kinship with the Saints & New Orleans.

From a talent perspective only, I just don't see it so far this year though.

We only replaced a G with a G for.

It was the best case scenario regarding the G for a G thing. We lost the best G to some ridiculous offer and replaced him with the 2nd best free agent G for less money thus allowing us to do more things.

Carl Nicks is considered by most NFL analysts as the #1 OG in the league, and Ben Grubbs is considered #2.

He blocked for Ray Rice, so he knows how to run block.

I see it as a cheaper, parallel signing!

Is there an echo in here?

Keep getting better? As a sports fan in general Grubbs signing saves money and replaces Nicks with a top guard in the league so good move Salute to Mickey Loomis, LB needs to be addressed, DT bring Rogers back hes big, lost Meachem I don't hate him for it the offense is an onslaught he gets his touches yeah he dropped passes just like everyone else on the wr corps he's got a Super Bowl Ring and he just got paid hes Charlie Sheen right now goes to a team nice weather Good QB with Rivers.17 was a burner made some of the biggest plays I've seen in Washington. Hes gonna go off with Philip Rivers. Whos replacing him? Arrington? Is he gonna finally do something? Joe Morgan is he ready to go and healthy? Whos out there available I dread seeing Andy Tanner on Sundays! So to say they got better I don't know about that, we may loose a corner in 22, lost 17, Franklin is gone Rogers is gone and MOST OF ALL WE STILL GOT SCOTT SHANLE! Whom ever is,the,replacement for those players needs to to be an upgrade. We had no pass rush haven't for a long time now we need to get after it on the Dline
the safety position needs to play better to many big plays given up when you have an offense that lives in the endzone if these are corrected then I would say the Saints got better but we're months away from the hall of fame game and opening day which I hope is the Giants in NY so I can go to the Game!
