He is good at the line, getting physical, but he doesn't have the hips to really mirror receivers, nor the recovery speed if he gets burned. That being said, I believe we'll be employing a man coverage next season and we're stuck with JP, so here's to hoping he can be coached up and contribute for our D

OK. BTW, I didn't mean anything negative with my question, I was merely curious as to what you perhaps saw in JP that made you think he was a better fit for man coverage.

Not necessarily all the time; Ryan runs a lot of zone 4-6 in short yardage situations...

After reading up on what he likes to do; he's just like G.W. using both 4-3/3-4... Pretty much exactly like G.W, without all the bounty stuff...

All good my dude, didn't take it negatively. Sparks good conversation. You were correct all the same

I agree that we need to upgrade our DB situation. Should be bring in Anthony Spencer, OLB, from Dallas as a rush LB, I would be OK with taking Kenny Vaccaro (FS) or Desmond Trufant (CB) in the 1st round.

Re: Our CB's

If the Saints were somehow able to snatch a coveted FA like Byrd to add to their backfield, they'd instantly improve as an unit.

I think Amerson would be a good pick with either a potential 2nd via trade down or with the 3rd, if he for some reason was still available at that point in the draft.

The thought of acquiring Byrd would be music to my ears!

Re: Our CB's

It would be a nice pick-up, but I'd much rather spend money on the front end. We have very few players that have actually played in a 3-4.

Gimme some quality vets along the front 7 that'll help transition us into our new 3-4 before any big money guys on the back end. We have very little cash to spend on anyone.

Re: Our CB's

Robinson has talent, he's more of a man coverage player. Spags ran zone more than anything...
plus our pass rushed was atrocious...
