What's "incredibly dumb" is attacking my opinion on the Saints needs. There's no need to be a jerk.

The Saints have some players that have the ability to be the next "wow" guy. Morgan, Cadet, and Hakim to name a few. I'd rather see the Saints find out what these guys can do and focus on much bigger needs than use the only pick that they have in the first two rounds on a WR.

We also don't have to rely on our receivers and Graham to make bone crushing catches down field all the time. While our offense is great, there's always room for improvement... Which in turn will keep it that way.

This isn't me saying we need to target Austin in the first or anything, I've already said I'm against it before, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to add some more explosiveness to our offense.

I agree with all that you said after this.

Not cool.

IceShack is far from dumb.

He does live in one of the dullest places that I have ever lived.

Ice, are the Badger Den and the Silver Spur still open?

Could be similar to a Willie Whitehead type signing.

I wouldn't be upset if the Saints landed another Sproles-type player in FA or through the draft (after round 3.) I just want to see a quality player on defense. I haven't seen one of those in a while. I doubt that's Coleman but we all understand what his signing brings to the Saints. Playbook knowledge.

YES IF COLEMAN DID SIGN IT'S A DEPTH SIGNING TO HELP OUT WITH THE TRAINING CAMP! Sounds like Coleman wants to be a coach!

I would be very happy if this proved to be true.

Dullest!? You must be a city guy.

I don't know about the Badger Den. I think it's still up and running. The Spur has turned into one of those shady payday-advance-loan places. There's a bunch of broken down vehicles in the parking lot with dollar amounts taped on the inside of the windshields.
