hard to be a gamebreaker if you aren\'t in the actual game jimbone. bottom line is lelie hasn\'t missed one game since coming to the NFL... that alone separates him from stallworth. just like energy, i\'ll take kinetic (active) energy over potential (at rest) energy any day. if potential energy isn\'t converted to kinetic, it\'s useless. stallworth is potential energy, kinda useless if not converted, or made active. get it. don\'t get me wrong, i think he has major talent and all that, but on the sidelines it can\'t be used and at least we\'d have someone decent ON THE FIELD w/ Lelie or any other WR from the past 2 drafts.

The year we drafted Stallworth I wasn\'t sure if I wanted him or Buchanon. Looking back we probably should of drafted Buchanon, but hind sight\'s 20/20. I do know though that like most Saints fans I was excited after we drafted Stallworth. If Stallworth ever gets the fire under his hindside lit he will be a gamebreaker, and all you bashers will be praising him. Robinson did make plays and was feared by opponents.

if \'Streetclothes\' gets a fire under his hindside he\'ll be on the DL with a ruptured hamstring

spanky, i hope to god you are right about stallworth, but i have good sources that have pointed out that SEVERAL times he\'s been more than healthy enough to play, but refused to citing that he didn\'t want to hurt it more. team doctors have told me he was healthy and could have played, but as we have come to know, he didn\'t.

I don\'t know, Buchanon looked like toast a ton last year. I remember when Oakland played Detroit, the lions fullback Cory Schlesinger completely beat him on a route and scored a touchdown.

When you\'re covering a fullback and you get toasted, you\'ve got some huge problems.

i don\'t think buchanon was all that great in college, and i don\'t think he\'ll be too great as a pro. i\'m glad the Saints didn\'t take him, but like i said they also shouldn\'t have taken Stallworth

Buchanon was good in college and will be in the nfl. The Raiders had so many problems last year that it may have effected his performance. I also highly doubt that he was the primary cover for a fullback. It may have looked like he got beat, but he was probably trying to catch someone else\'s man.

For all of the Donte bashers, here is some stats...you be the judge.

Player Year GP Rec Yds TD
Lelie \'02 16 35 525 2
\'03 16 37 628 2

Stallworth \'02 13 42 594 8
\'03 11 25 485 3


Stallworth missed 8 more games and is still right up there with Lelie in catches and yardage, but not touchdowns. Stallworth scored almost 3 times more TDs than Lelie in 8 fewer games. If I gould go back to the 2002 Draft I would still draft Stallworth over Lelie
