Re: Is our window closed?

I think the Dude has a good point here though. He's onto something. What we REALLY need to do, is start telling Drew that WE think the window is closed. Once people start telling him that, once the media start saying he will never get there, then he will go out there like a maniac and win three in a row for us.

Now I get it, awesome thread -- I like the way The Dude is thinking, here....crazy like a fox....

As soon as you link Drew to our defensive performance... I would buy it.... but then again I think I would have more questions.

No question the effort has been there; it's now at the point of incompetence...

One ProBowl in all those draft picks - you could have a better draft from the consensus of this website than what's been done on defense...

And how exactly are you going to "clean house" when only Ellis', Casillas', McBride's and Shanle's contracts are up at the end of this season?!

In the current salary cap era, you can't just "blow up" a team when players have 2-3 years left on their expensive contracts, like Will Smith for example. You'd still end up paying those cut players a ton of money because their contracts guarantee them that money, and while you'd have a lot more free roster spots - you'd find it hard to find the money to fill those spots with actual quality players.

This is the reality that I've been struggling with when trying to think of a way the Saints could really improve their defensive personnel for next year.

True, I hit on Hicks a month before that draft, so maybe they should give me a shot come next draft?!

As long as Drew is the QB, the window is far from closed
