Can we start Wilson instead of will smith yet?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Junior? Give the boy a shot? But I'll bet Smith has more gap discipline and better outside contain than both Junior or Tez, but that might be just coincidence since ol' Willie is obviously slower and just can't move anymore. ...

Tell ya what: Switch the roles of Will and Tez/Junior plus the roles of Ellis with Walker/Johnson. Why not? They'd certainly bring more fire and excitement. They'd also bring more penalties and mental mistakes, but I could live with that considering the lethargy and apathy that our defense is playing with now. Let the kids have a bigger role.

If that actually gets done but fails miserably, I'll gladly eat crow for that. Just some passion on the D side would be nice to see. The incentive of a larger pay day for the kids is a bigger incentive for them to produce than trying to get the multi-millionaires Smith and Ellis to exert themselves for jack-squat.

FYI...thinking Ellis is ready to run for Seattle in the offseason to rejoin his USC roots, and I'd be extremely shocked to see much of anything out of this @$$clown the rest of year. He has more than clocked out just judging by these last 2 games, and I ain't talking stats (even moderately effective DT's don't show up too much on the stat sheet).

Tez needs to be given a shot, he really can't be worse than smith and would probably give our D a fresh approach

The only d lineman I like that we have is cam Jordan, akiem hicks might be a steal

That's like asking the age old question..how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop. Nobody really knows

Has all the double teams the man has had to endure and face thru the years finally take its toll?
I don't know please enlighten me.
I think not.It has to be something to do with The Star-caps incident!Has to be (Pete scratches his head) ...

I've been wanting Smith gone for 2 years now same with Shanle and both are still on team and the defense continues to struggle, its time to cut these old, underachieving, overpaid players and give the young guys a chance. Whats the worse that can happen now?
