I really could care less about all these cinderella stories and rags to riches crap that a lot of fans love to see. I don't care if a player drove a Mercedes in high school, and had a silver spoon in his mouth the whole way through, I just want the best player on the team. Some people act like they would rather have one of these feel good players on their team than someone who can really contribute.

I dont notice it too much on this board I might add, but I have seen it elsewhere.

I am all about the underdog story, even though I hated the "Rudy" story. This guy and Brian Banks. I will be following them closely. I hope they make a team somewhere.

We all want the players that are best for our team, but you've got to respect a guy that makes it to the NFL the hard way and never had anything given to him, he always had to earn it

Kurt Warner, Pierre Thomas, Rod smith (broncos) come to mind

Given this team's incredible history of doing well with underdogs, second chances, small colleges, low draft picks, and cast-offs from other teams, you would think that ANY new underdog on the horizon would be welcomed by the fans with open arms.

The BEERMAN only come'eth once.........

(unless someone orders more beer.)


We need these local "feel good" stories to remember the Saints are human beings and OUR team, and not run by the NFL's money making deceptive PR machine.

If he makes the practice squad then theres a lttle more money in his pocket. I don't see it happening though.
