NO TOONżżż

I know it's still early in the season and he probably has some opps coming his way, but to not get in on one play so far has me scratching my head because Meachem was picked up late and even he's been given some shots and thats REALLY ANNOYING to me for us to be sitting him on the bench I think he could do some big things for us ....and our O-line looks like poo

Re: NO TOONżżż

I think right now the Saints are still playing the experiment game, basically saying.........we dont know who the best WR's are out there atm. We had Meachem, Moore, Colston, and Stills out there today, and Stills never did get a catch, I am not even sure if Lance Moore got one.

Re: NO TOONżżż

Keep in mind this is pure speculation.

I think they are grooming him for the Colston role. That means he has to know all the routes for all the receiver positions, because we know how Colston lines up all over the place. And maybe it takes a little longer to get all that stuff down.

Don't know what Moore's injury was. Who knows, maybe we'll see Toon next week.

Re: NO TOONżżż

I dunno, more I see Moore, I sometimes wonder if we shouldnt find a better WR for his spot to. But then he comes up with these 2 TD 100 yard games when you start to question it.

I think we have lost a step or 2 at WR position which is why I think the offense has been a little slow this season. Most balls is going to the TE and RB these first 3 games.

Re: NO TOONżżż

I think Colston is still showing his great level of production. He runs good routes and hauls in passes when he needs to. Moore on the other hand looks to me like he is slowing down a little. Having said that he is still very effective. Stills and Toon could well be our next Moore and Colston so bringing them in slowly seems to make sense.

Re: NO TOONżżż

WR by committee is best played as exploiting match-ups. I expect to see some WRs getting the ball when that match up is bad, and others getting the ball when a different match up is bad. Its utilizing your entire roster.

Re: NO TOONżżż

Teams seem to be playing press coverage with one over the top, a modified tampa-2. Line pressure has been almost exclusively up the middle to disrupt Brees lines of sight. That will always leave a mismatch on the TE and RB.

I don't know if the receivers are a step slow. Brees has been underthrowing his deep balls all last season and this one.

Re: NO TOONżżż

I'll take Meachem on a dead run slant, post or back flag any day. Nick Toon will get his, no doubt. But like all our receivers, they have to make the best of what they are offered.

Jimmy had a GREAT day, but honestly it would be greater if he learned to extend his arms to catch a sideline pass.

We simply could not be in a better position than we are in with respect to talent on offense.

Re: NO TOONżżż

Graham just like everyone else on our roster still has room for growth. Long as Toon is OK then I'm OK.
