And on the sixth day, there was hitting. After five days of the CBA-mandated non-padded practices, The MMQB Training Camp Tour finally got to see real football when the Saints strapped on the pads and started popping each other on the grounds of The Greenbrier in White Sulfur Springs, W.V. What a tremendous job by the people at The Greenbrier to get the facility—a large office building with two grass fields and a turf field—ready in just three short months. And what a great decision by coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis to move their camp from New Orleans, where the heat can drain the players. Camp Greenbrier got off to a soggy start, but it’s much cooler than the Saints’ normal home.

Re: Saints Report: Strap on the Pads and Hit Someone

Barring injury, I don't see this happening:

Strong opinion that I may regret by November

Former Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey is not going to help this team as much as the Saints had hoped. He’s extremely average at this point. He’s lost a step, is much stiffer in the hips and is relying even more on his mind to make plays. It’s early, but it would not be a shock if Bailey, who has just $500,000 guaranteed on his contract, doesn’t make the team. The Saints have some promising young defensive backs who might have to be kept. Undrafted free agent Pierre Warren, for instance, was making plays all over the field.

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Interesting on Champ...Coach has been high on him. He has declined physically but his mentally, likely compensates for it. He was starting last year so I don't know..I think he can still play above average. We've had younger CB's who were much worse off for years so I'm fine with him. Bottomline, he came here to start as he said so have to like his attitude.

Re: Saints Report: Strap on the Pads and Hit Someone

i have NEVER disagreed more with a sports writer in an article. !. He says Brandin Cooks is competing for the #3 WR spot. He will start all 16 games if healthy and lead the Saints WR in all receiving categories. I dont see how a sports writer could even have put this in an article. We did not move up in the draft to bring this dude in on 3 WR sets. Stills and Colston could both not be top 3 in receiving stats among WR this year and he says theyre 1 and 2. Only Graham could beat him in receiving production. 2. He says Bailey might not make the team and just yesterday Payton said he expects him to be our day 1 starter next to Keenan Allen. At worst hell be our starting nickel back.
