Which players are on the bubble?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Nick toon is in danger For 3 straight years all I've heard is how good he looks in training camp, that doesn't mean squat if you can't stay healthy or when you do get on the field you drop more ...

Nick toon is in danger

For 3 straight years all I've heard is how good he looks in training camp, that doesn't mean squat if you can't stay healthy or when you do get on the field you drop more passes than you catch

He really needs to step up, I still hold him accountable for the loss vs jets

Well, they both suck and Dimke is cheaper, so there you have it.
To make matters worse, here is what Hartley is going to cost us this year:
$1,010,400

Re: Which players are on the bubble?

Joe Morgan at least has a chance with kick/punt return abilities.
Toon just has to make it happen within the offense.
Ingram did OK late in the season. Personally I like PT better; more versatile and better vision.
Payton's game plan is situational and won't give any of them enough carries to turn heads with their numbers.
Even if they have a +100 game this week, it just doesn't transfer to the next week.
The one thing we know is that they have no problem with new blood.
Players who prove they belong will be around.
Ingram is contract safe and would really have to fall flat to not get his share of opportunities.
When the roster is down to actives + PSquads, I'm thinking we will look pretty good.

Re: Which players are on the bubble?

Ingram? come on.

Players who are actually probably on the bubble.

McCown - I could see Griffin making him expendable.
Cadet - If he doesn't have a very good preseason, he's gone IMO.
Morgan and Meachem - IMO one of these two is gone because they play essentially the same role in the offense.
Marcel Jones - time to put up or shut up for him.
Sweeting - too many good players ahead of him.

Re: Which players are on the bubble?

Ingram will make the team. Toon is on the bubble but I think he'll eventually outplay Coleman and Hull although it's not a sure thing. I could see Hull being a special team star because he played safety in college he can surely cover kicks. Morgan will either start or we're done with him. If Morgan is healthy he's a star. He reminds me a lot of Joe Horn. But if he gets hurt again I give up. Could Pierre Thomas get outplayed by Tim Flanders or Cadet? Doubtful.

Drew would have ended up in Miami and Saban may still be in the NFL

The problem with bashing Ingram is that he had the best YPC for the Saints last year. now that we can stretch a defense with some speed at WR well see. i mean every back the Bucs used last year ran for 200yds it seemed. maybe irs the line or the sysrem.

Exactly, that's why the early season struggles we had were to do with our O line rather than the RB's

If our O line can put together consistent performances in run blocking, all our RB's will be tough to stop

If Meachem can't get on the field, he isn't going to make the team.
