Re: Preseason Buzzkill

Good story. I don't agree with the writer that the CB situation is terrible at all, although that whole thing kind of depends on whether you think Corey White sucks or not. He is right about Galette though. I pointed out Galette's inconsistency quite a few times last season. Still a good player, but he's still got a lot to learn.

Re: Preseason Buzzkill

All legitimate concerns. I think he puts his pessimism in perspective with his prediction of the season record.

The question, for me, isn’t whether the Saints will be a good football team or a mediocre one. The question will be if they are a good football team — or a historic one.

Re: Preseason Buzzkill

The one thing you need to realize is that you really don't want our D coming together right now. You want to know and see promise or players you can work with...

But D coming together near the playoffs is what you want.

Roy Boy? Does that mean Rob Ryan? Where does the Roy come from?

Re: Preseason Buzzkill

Once the season starts we won't be "evaluating" players, we'll be game planning. Huge difference in my opinion.

Re: Preseason Buzzkill

Don't read too much into it, Keenan lewis got torched last preseason and shut down every number 1 receiver he went against in the regular season

Preseasons all well and good but its not a true representation of how it will play out in the regular season

He even told the fans, don't worry he'd be shut-down as soon as the regular season started.

That was the coolest thing ever

Re: Preseason Buzzkill

I must say I agree with the characterization of our CB's except for the part where Robinson is the savior. I still see white not getting his head around or playing the ball in the air. I think he might be best served playing in the slot. I still see baptiste developing much slower than expected although I do like how physical he tries to play. I fear if this keeps up we may have to rely on bailey a lot more than we wanted to.
