But he's a heck of a lot better than most here give him credit for, he just can't catch a football to save his life.

He's done okay catchin' quarterbacks though.

I appreciate the Black and Gold goggles bro, but the Saints LB core is far from crowded with talent. I'm not sold on Vaccaro. He's a good tackler with average speed. Sounds like Harper to me.

I can actually understand the skepticism with our linebackers(doesn't mean I agree), but Vaccaro and Harper do not sound alike. Vaccaro is combo safety athletic enough to cover slot receivers and more in the mold Malcolm Jenkins as opposed to Harper. Scouts have compared him to Eric Weddle... and Roman Harper is nothing similar to that. You're in a whole different ball park.

Poor ball handling skills.

Agreed, he'll never be a Polomalu (a pure stud SS) or an Ed Reed (a pure stud FS), but he can be a very solid combination of the two, which is fine by me.

In the new age of pass happy offenses, he's the new breed... FSS (Free-Strong Safety).

Of course its only paper speculation for now.

I agree, I like his ole' school ways, I do wish he had good hands though.

Re: Vaccaro intends to add to Saintsí new-look defense

I knew someone was gonna give me a list of names. I know all the names and I'm optimistic too, but is there one pro-bowler in that bunch? The dome patrol had 4. That was crowded.
