Why? He was a good and loyal player for us and helped us win a Superbowl.

There is a reason the Saints let him go. It's the same reason Brees probably can't wait to throw against his coverage.

Re: I'm so glad this dude's gone

Ill still remember Vernon Davis dominating him in the playoffs a few years ago, and our first game against the Packers that one year. Dude was nice, friendly, heck he even follows me on twitter for some reason. But I cant wait until he lines up against Graham. Gonna be a 150 2td game for Jimmy.

That was Malcolm Jenkins that vernon Davis beat all day

First one for a 50 yard TD, second one was the long gain that set up the niners winning score

Harper had his ups and downs but he was vital to our Superbowl win, people tend to forget that and just assumed that if Vilma or anyone missed a tackle - it was automatically Roman harpers fault

Re: I'm so glad this dude's gone

If your talking about on field... Yes he was a step slow.... But I don't doubt that he wanted to be here.... and if he was weighing options here vs Carolina and the money was the same he would have chosen us... That wasn't the case, so he had to move on to continue his career. I wish him the best because I know he still loves this team... Harpers loyalty to us shouldn't be in question.

Absolutely 100% true. Its amazing how many people blame Harper for plays he had nothing to do with.

I fully expect someone to blame Roman Harper this year when Kenny Vaccaro blows a coverage.

Cuz if he easnt excited about being a Saint anymore, then we don't need guys like that on the team.
