Nothing to lose but another game.

A look at the paper this morning showed a comparison of all NFL offenses, and defenses. Offensively, we have stats in the top ten for most everything except rushing yards. Defensively, we are at the bottom of the list, and not just by a small margin. It is flat terrible how far we've fallen from the great D's under Jim Mora. How does this happen when Haslett is an ex-linebacker at Buffalo, and a defensive coordinator for very good defenses in Pittsburgh? Anyway........

Against the Raiders, we have nothing to lose in putting in our un-tried backups. They honestly could not do much worse.
If I was Jim, here's what I'd do:

Gleason in - Tebucky out, as in not even suit up out.
Fahkir Brown, and Fred Thomas starting corners, with McKenzie nickelback.
Sedrick Hodge Sam linebacker, Colby Bockwoldt Will Linebacker
In pre-season Bockwoldt played with strong intensity. I hope he has the skills cause we need his spirit.
And finally Leisle at DT with Young. Currently there's a highway open next to Young so if Leisle at least doesn't move he'll get in the runner's way.
I know, I know you want me to apply for the soon to be open head coaching job, but I'll have to check my calendar.

Can\'t disagree with much except after a week of practice McKenzie should be starting opposite Fakhir. Fred looks like he was just playing for the contract cause he has done nothing this year. Definitely wanna see what Leisle can do and Bockwoldt can\'t be any worse. We definitely need to shake it up though.

But wait....we don\'t want haslett to do anything that might mess up our shot of having the #3-5 draft pick... now do we?

You\'re right Boccal. Definitely wanna give the new guy a shot at a top tier draft pick, something this regime blew egregiously. I think Sully and Tesucky may be the two worst personnel decisions in Saints history. And that is a long list.
