Was searching for rumors on the McKenzie situation and found this. Apparently the curse of ex-Saints players missing significant time with their new club this year continues. In other news: mysterious rose fragrance reported coming from front office of Saint's headquarters.

It's possible defensive tackle Grady Jackson will miss a significant amount of time after suffering a dislocated left kneecap, so Green Bay is considering bringing back Larry Smith.

Comes to camp at a disappointing 380 lbs, then dislocates a kneecap.

I wonder what may have been a contributing factor to that?

Weight, I think I know the answer.

Lets hope Sullivan doesn\'t turn into Grady Jackson. I\'m afraid he may be on that path.

The Moonshiners will tell you Grady\'s problems were related to the Saints organization and Haz. What kinda Mickey Mouse organization are they running up there in Green Bay anyway? LMAO

HA HA HA HA HA! Riddle me this oh wise one - what\'s better - Grady Jackson, or two first round picks wasted to get his twin? Yeah, they\'re a bunch of Einsteins in our front office.

I\'m going to lean towards Grady simply because we paid him league minimum and didn\'t give up two first rounders to get him.

This doesn\'t address the fact that you moonshiners didn\'t think we should get rid of him. Then, after he played a decent game or three here came all the \"I told you so\'s\". You\'re comment fails to address any of this, but then that\'s per the usual.

Why can\'t you simply deal with something head on minus the spin? Riddle me that? LMAO

No one ever said Grady was God\'s gift, but I will say I TOLD YOU SO AGAIN!!! Consider - the Saints keep Grady at league minimum and use their two first rounders to pick Trufant instead of Sully. What changes?? The secondary is improved, you don\'t have to give up two picks and more money than Trufant is gettnig paid to find a guy like McKenzie, and your line play is no worse, as Sullivan certainly hasn\'t played much better that Grady since he got here, now has he? Instead, you wasted two first rounders on Sullivan, overpaid him, and have a hole in your secondary that requires you to part with more picks and money than you would have had to give up to get a young talent who is proving himself game in and game out in Seattle. Yeah, you\'re right, this way is better. :casstet:

But hey, since I\'m such a spin artist, can you please tell me why the Saints are better off this way? (here comes the cancer argument... again....)
