I also think if Merriman will take a paycut he's worth giving another look. Article says he been injured up to 10 games a year since '07. He's not worth 10 mill a year which is probably why the bills cut him.

We don't delete threads without some explaination.
I see the thread in the NFL forum http://blackandgold.com/nfl/48556-bi...-merriman.html
Sure you didn't start it there?
If they moved it they probably felt it not all Saints related. We have been having to move a LOT of threads lately, especially the Falcon related ones...

No biggie. You should check out the NFL forum.
Might be time to move your thread back here though. It's a valid question for sure.

We need a flexibility coach. Every year the same shat; different position.

Re: Saints Linebackers Suffer Injuries and a Suspention

i'm not seeing loftons ankle a biggie, he played on it guys, never excusing himself is a solid as i've see vilma play with injury. a tad slower but there leadership is as fast as any backer. lofton's not worried = i'm not either. picking up a backer now before there's none to get is loomis working it again. his magic i believe in.

Re: Saints Linebackers Suffer Injuries and a Suspention

Ankle sprain, 6-8 weeks for a regular human being, 1-3 weeks for a NFL player with a professional training staff behind him. I am not worried at all about that, not Hawthornes knee either.

And pleas lets stay away from Merriman, he is just downright horrible. I rather just see us pick up any scrub from the street.

Remember colston came back from a dislocated shoulder in 3 weeks due to the hyperbaric air chamber thing, hope lofton and hawthorne are using it

A high ankle sprain can ruin your season, just ask Pierre Thomas.
