Will Smith is not meant to be a part of this team; he doesn't fit. Trade him and a sixth round pick to Rams for OT Rodger Saffold and don't f*** around with Drew's Health...

Re: Junya First in Line?

Like your opinion JP. Anyone who cares can defend Harper all they want. Proof is in the pudding he needs to get Beat out and sent packing. Smith is really not a bad player but he will surprise me if he makes it either. Smith is not going to fit well in this system because he cant run.

It was actually 4 TDs in that one game. However don't bother arguing about Harper it goes no where with far too many people on this forum.

Proof of Harper's poor ability to play the position isn't just in the scouting reports. Look at what has been done; 1st RD pick Safety and being forced to take a pay cut. Ill trust Mickey and the staff know best here.

4 TD's huh?

Hmmm, OK.

Here's what we know...

Mickey and the staff drafted him.
Payton made him a starter from day one.
He's been the starter for 7 years.
He's made two pro bowls.
He received more gameballs than anyone else on the team one year.
GW said Harper made exactly 2 mistakes in the Seattle game.
GW said he played a great game other than those 2 plays.
Mickey and the staff gave him a top 5 salary for safeties.
Payton gave MALCOLM JENKINS a heads up when we drafted Vacarro.
The Saints just gave Harper more money and an extension.
Payton said the team will start Vacarro off at the Free Safety position.

Second at 00:31

Third at 00:44

Forth at 1:02

Yeah great game giving up 4TDs... I couldn't care less of what GW has to say about anything.

Harper took a PAY CUT. He didn't go to the front office and say hey guys i'd like less money... no, Mickey probably told him to take less money or find another team.

PFT has had Harper ranked as one of the worst safeties to sit on the bench for the last two years, but hey this is all regurgitation at this point.

But to stay on topic...

I am looking forward to this new D and i think JR and Butler will play big roles. Both JR and butler could be pro-bowlers IMO.

Drew brees threw 5 picks vs falcons, 4 picks vs browns, 3 picks vs 49ers BOTH TIMES! 2 went back for TD's

Players have bad games, people just like blaming harper

Harper had a bad game vs seattle, drew had a bad game in the 2011 playoff game and then immediately demanded a 100 million dollar contract, why not give him some blame?

Re: Junya First in Line?

Seems like every thread ends up in a debate about Harper nowadays LOL. Back on topic, here's Junior getting even more hype: https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...unior-galette/

Re: Junya First in Line?

The linebacking corps has a chance to be just as deep, at least on the outside. In addition to Smith, Galette, Butler and Wilson, the Saints added sixth-rounder Rufus Johnson and hard-working undrafted free agent Chase Thomas to the mix. Finding two reliable starters out of that group of six will be atop the Saints’ to-do list this offseason, but the odds are in their favor.

Hmmm I still think Wilson's natural skills set is in the middle of the field. You look at his speed and everyone sees OLB right away.

Watch tape on him and you see a LB that has an excellent knack at shooting gaps. That is just his natural gift. Timing and reading the blocking schemes.

I wouldn't be shocked if our two ILB's end up being Wilson and Lofton. With the 2014 Capageddon approaching, we damn well better find some cheaper solutions at several positions.

Mickey can work magic, but he can't work miracles.
