New Orleans Saints' deep-threat options were limited without Joe Morgan

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I hope we address the offensive line. I think the defense was great and gets some guys back next year. Maybe a CB, but I still think the offensive line could use the most help....

Bad luck for Morgan. I hope he makes it back, somewhere.
I like what Stills tried to do with his time.
We have got to look forwards and rejuvenate the offense with raw talented youth

Re: New Orleans Saints' deep-threat options were limited without Joe Morgan

We didn't have a deep threat because Drew can't get it downfield the way he used to do...

Stills, Meachem have shown they are capable of the big play downfield; Toon learns the catchy-ball thing, that'll be three...

Wow, we've got a good WR corps...

Re: New Orleans Saints' deep-threat options were limited without Joe Morgan

The problem wasn't having enough options, it was the process of getting the ball downfield. Whether it was Drew, the offensive line play, play calling or lack of a play action passing game, options weren't the issue. Execution was.

I would love to have Morgan back at full strength, but not having Morgan wasn't the problem.

Re: New Orleans Saints' deep-threat options were limited without Joe Morgan

I wouldn't imagine a center in the 3rd round and a WR in the 4th would hurt, if Payton takes a center that guy from Arkansas looks ready to plug and play, I just don't know what round it would take to get him.

The defense is fine and did its job. Offense needs to be addressed with an injection of youth.

Added: I do believe that going into our last draft... We had no clue what we had on defense and the picture is a lot clearer and brighter now.
Then why wouldn't you use the first two picks of those six picks to turn fine....... Into special.... A ball hawking safety, another shutdownish corner, or and OLB...... I believe you can fix your o line in the middle rounds like you have
Always done..... and instead of wasting a pick on a wide out you can go get an established one for cheap..... Maclin, Nicks....etc....

Title should be " New Orleans Saints deep threat options were limited without good pass protection " having Joe wouldn't had helped the oline any.
