It's not hate, just exasperation. We're not some backwater team that has to play the game the good ole boy way anymore. Ticket sales are only a small part of the revenue scheme and we don't have to hire locals to make money. Now we need good solid players that'll take us somewhere, not past local heroes whose best days are years behind them, or boys whose number one selling point is they played in the SEC. We need players offering good, consistent performance we can count on, not players with good "bloodlines" or players who have had good local TV exposure. That's all. Will love Porter always, but now it's time for him to be watching the game from his living room.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

god knows we have enough rt tackles on the roster already. all walking wounded just waiting to go on IR. put them all together and you might make it through a season. we need to address this issue one year soon.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Neither McKinnie or Starks are mobile LTs, so they wouldn't be much help in the upfield blocking game, which is important for the Saints' running and screen game.

That's why I think SP would still prefer Charles Brown over these guys, since he at least has good mobility even with his injury woes.

So we're basically screwed at Left Tackle...

I know McKinnie was contacted by Saints per Florio News Corp...

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Apparently the main reason why Starks isn't being re-signed by the Steelers is that he lacks the mobility to be an effective upfield blocker - sounds to me that's something the Saints would need out of their LT as well.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

better get one early in the draft and line the blocking TE on the left and all backs must be at there best this year.

Chris Faulk, OT, LSU is looking better and better in rounds 3 and 4.

Michael Williams, TE, Alabama put a few pounds on him and make him a OT?

Reid Fragel OT Ohio St looks interesting as a project. 1 yr already at OT

then again could a OT trade be possible in the draft? hmmmmm Need to start looking at that one a bit more

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Adam Schefter ✔ @AdamSchefter

Chiefs are seeking a second-round pick in this year's draft as well as another pick in 2014 in a trade for franchise OT Branden Albert.


do you think the saints would be willing to part with pick 15 for him?
15 NO 1050pts
they want a 2 so give it the value of
42 MIA 480
I use miami because they are listed as the most interested
trade difference 570
Not sure KC would trade 170 KC 234 this year because they have no picks in the 5th. that would leave a value of a low second high third to carry over to next for us.

ok lets see what else is possible to get a vet
