Again, the Humber suspension was not something new. It became apparent when Lofton and Hawthorne were reported as injured from the Jags game.
Exactly, Humbers suspension was not a biggie being a back up, but when your two starters are hurt and your back up goes down it is time to get a back up for the back up in case the starters can start but go down or cant run a full game..

I wonder if our RIDICULOUSLY ALL PRO OFFENSIVE LINE might have been who's jock he was eating and who was knocking him on his arse all day...I am more curious about how he did against other running backs than how he did against us.

He is a longtime vet with an injury list as long as my arm, but realistically he only might be needed for the first half of the season if we get some of these other injuries and suspensions back. Remember how Mike McKenzie came back off the street and looked like an amazing baller against the Pats, everybody was like YEAHHHHHH, and he was good for about a half game after that, then dropped off and looked bad and we cut him when other people came back from injuries. That's really all we might need from this dude here. Or maybe we get more from him, who knows.

Difference was that MM didn't cost us a draft pick. However I feel that our FO would never trade for a guy unless they had a really good feeling about him.

You do know that he and Shanle were college teammates at Nebraska right?

I knew they both played for Nebraska.
Shanle drafted in 2003
Ruud in 2005

So yeah, didn't think of that!

It's a conditional pick based upon Rudd making the team and how much he plays. It will probably be a 5th rounder.

Re: Saints acquire LB Barrett Rudd from Seahawks for an Undisclosed Pick

The guy was a very good player a long time ago. Now he's just a journeyman MLB that we probably give a 7th for, and he's merely insurance in case Lofton can't go week 1.

He can probably still bring it for a few games, which is all we really need.

If he's smart, he'd be an upgrade. Pass him some boudin and a hushpuppy.

He was the bucs leading tackler for four years straight! Got 200 tackles one year! Don't know what he's got left but he was a beast for awhile.
