-Cooks would not have been my choice, but he's a darn good player and fills a definite need. He will be a playmaker.
-Jean-Baptiste is a shutdown/playmaking CB the Saints needed.
-Fortt was a reach at best with lots of other talent on the board. He has no where to go but up and hopefully will suprise.
-Sunseri is a great pick. He's better than Bush and if he's healthy will take over Vaccaro's role in Ryans's 3 safety scheme. Plus, Vaccaro is coming off two concussions and a season ending injury.
-Powell has talent and plays with a mean streak. The Saints need someone to step up at LB. He will get his shot.
-Rooks is another reach and will never play a down for the Saints. Wasted pick with lots of talent available at other positions. If you're going to take a flyer on someone, how about a kicker?

The two playmakers at the top earn the Saints a B+. Sunseri and Powell bump it up to an A-.

It is just not our style that all. i gave up on the saints dancing around the draft board years ago.

If there was a draft to play games in this was it.

We could have added so much more talent to this team. oh well it aint our style.

We won't know how SF or Seattle managed until the end of the season.

SF gathers and then sheds.... Look at Nnamdi. Now people wish we drafted like them, then people wished we did free agency like them... On 17th of November 2013 we best them.


Is Seattle that much better than the Saints? Only at home. They are not that much of a better team if they are not in the Clink.

Simple question, you turn 6 into 12, who are you cutting to make room? Have you looked at the depth chart? We are over already.


At some point every mater piece painted looks just like crap, every mansion looks like a slab, every super model looks awkward.
I'll get upset if this draft and free agency leaves us 4-12 at the end of 2014.....

Critiquing Payton and Loomis while they work before the first preseason is unfair, I have to give them the benefit of the doubt. Or should I dig into this sites archives and show what was thought of Moore, Brees, Colton when they were brought on?

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: Grade Our Draft!

******* fine! I'll vote the ******* F! I'm not worrying about anyone's ******* self-esteem on this board. I figure out grades for a ******* living and **** if one out of seven is anywhere near a ******* passing grade! Cooks -nailed it. Baptiste? Really? Mark my words, he's our ******* Arrington of this draft! *** ** * *****! Then we go out and draft a bunch of **** ***** hobbled up defensive players when a ******* stubbed toe takes our O Line down to three and a half players! Our best answer to that is an older than anyone but me center who played his best days years ago? **** an A! I guess I get to play Hagan this year, standing out in the front yard howling, breaking tree branches and such.

At least we didn't draft a ******* QB!

You can also bring out the saved history on Sedrick Ellis, Robert Meachem, Jason David, Shaun Rogers, Curtis Lofton, Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper...

On second thought, don't bring up Harper, the servers may explode...

Don't come here to sing Kumbaya on a BBS, nor drink the coolaid...

Discussing, Arguing in a friendly banter and discourse is what this online community is all about...

And as great a Coach we have, he has his flaws, in regards to personnel - an example is his man-crushes on players (which I am as guilty of as well)...

Only Issue that concerns me is whether Loomis has the backbone to reign Payton in and to make shrewd drafts and moves without overpaying - as we did with the likes of Will Smith and Roman Harper with their departure, role reduction coinciding with a resurgence in the Saints defense...

They get the privilege and salary for running the Saints - with that comes great responsibility and the headache of hearing from paying fans who may have as a perspective that's valid...

I'm fully aware of how this community functions, just one piece of it is is the ability to sing kumbaya or drink coolaid if a member cares to, just like the same member can come and ***** and moan because something didn't go their way. If you don't mind refraining from telling me and other members what they shouldn't "come here to sing", I know I'd appreciate it. If you came looking for a rochambeau I'm your huckleberry..... We can kick each other in the nutz all day long.

Loomis reigning in? You mean like he did with Haslet? Sean Payton is our bread and butter, not Loomis.

As far as the last paragraph, perhaps if you feel you've bought time with Loomis's ear you should schedule a meeting and take advantage of that investment. Last I checked you'll not find him here, so that's a relatively straw argument. If you purchase a game ticket you've paid to watch the game, not make demands of the management tree.

Neither a purchase nor a donation entitle a person to decide how things should be run.

Since I'm drinking and singing..... Your saying we are worse than 11-5 next season?

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
