Saints back in hunt for CB McKenzie

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; BK, I recognize your argument as much better now. I remain unconvinced, but that is only due to my ignorance of how much say each individual got/gets on draft day. I guess, as of now, I don\'t have enough evidence ...

Saints back in hunt for CB McKenzie

BK,

I recognize your argument as much better now. I remain unconvinced, but that is only due to my ignorance of how much say each individual got/gets on draft day. I guess, as of now, I don\'t have enough evidence to blame/praise Haz, Loomis, or anyone else for our recent picks.

Listen guys, there is no doubt that Haslett has much more say in personnel nowthen he did with Mueller at the helm. It\'s common sense. Mueller is a football guy - a scout. He was the guy in charge of making all of the personnel decisions, and like it or not he did that mostly on his own and mostly right.

Loomis is a finance guy - a businessman. In the current setup, Loomis isn\'t going out and scouting talent like Mueller did. He\'s making sure that we have one of the best cap situations in the league.

I\'m not commenting here one way or the other as to which situation is better or worse. I am saying, however, that the reality of the situation is that Haslett has more say and more control now then he did when Mueller was here.

As for Mueller being a control freak - that\'s a tough one. Think about it. Sure, the owner is the owner - you work for him you have to listen to him. But when the owner is keeping you from doing your job as best you can, do you blame a guy for saying - Tom, as a professional scout I think I know football a little better than a car dealer. Just sit back and let me get you the best players I can... ???? There\'s nothing wrong with that either, and basically two egos got in the way. Unfortunately for the Saints IMO, the wrong one won.

Props to BMG here. Can I hear again about how we don\'t need a CB, how drafting ANOTHER D-linemen will make this team so much better?
I don\'t believe I ever said that. I made two points:

1) That the two impact corners in the draft (Robinson and Hall) were long gone.
2) The Saints couldn\'t afford a top tier free agent upgrade.

[/quote:aebf825f22] They\'ll be able to stop the run and the pass rush will help the secondary. How many sacks do our exaulted front 4 have so far this year again?

The vaunted front 4 have really played together. We\'ve already lost 3 complete player/games (2 for Howard, 1 for Young) in a two game season.

Also I sayd they needed to stop the run. They haven\'t and frankly the defense has looked really bad against the run. The gap control sucks and the LBs always seem to be out of the play.

The run defense needs to get better.

[quote:aebf825f22]

It amazes me how everyone forgets that two months ago many many people were talking about a corner like he wasn\'t worth much more than a punter. Man, all I can do is shake my head.
I said that MM would cost too much and be too disruptive. I still believe both of those things.

And the defense\'s problem is the run game. 174 YPG average! Yipes!!!

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.
