We do? I suppose that depends on who you ask. I know I will - glad to have you on board.

Back to Sullivan being the worst draft bust in Saints History. I agree. We traded TWO FIRST ROUND draft picks, to take him in the 6TH round. That\'s a lot of weight to put on a young guy\'s shoulders, but not nearly enough to keep him from gaining 40 pounds of fat in 3 months. He knew how we were supposedly dedicated to stopping the run this year, but that wasn\'t enough for him to imrpove his skills at his position, so he loses his starting job to a free agent who was barely even scouted out of college, in Howard Green. Was that enough to get results. Of course not. Erxlaben was the worst until now. We passed on many young guys who may be future hall of famers.
Marcus Trufant, Byron Leftwich, Jordan Gross, Charles Tillman, Ken Hamlin, Nick Barnett, Anquan Boldin. And these are all positions we need lots of help at.

FOB,

I think you mean we took him with the 6th pick but I couldn\'t agree more. The thing that appalled me was when we picked him, I distinctly remember Kiper rifling through his draft sheets to remember where Sullivan was on his big board. He didn\'t even have him in the first round, and if he was definitely not that early. I don\'t even remember the Saints ever having a pick this high(besides the Ricky Williams fiasco) and they blew it egregiously. If nothing else defines this regime that has to be a glaring beacon of ineptitude.
