No real surprises. I might add FB Lorig to this list. WTF? I wish SP would be a little more forthcoming on what's up.

Really like this...also like the quote in your profile. There was pretty good effectiveness in the run game last year once Armstead took over for that soft, converted-TE Charlie Brown. Both Armstead and Strief are pretty good OT's, and Harris did a good job last year in spot-starting, too. Still scratching my head on that Rooks pick in respect to OT depth...

Re: 5 New Orleans Saints who hurt their cause to make the roster

Oh, and Toon? Rose-colored glasses, folks.

Most of us hoped and wanted him to work out...he was part of that notorious 2012 draft, and he was our 2nd pick in that draft. But that was 122nd overall, and remember Toon was a FOURTH round pick in a below-average 2012 wide receiver draft pool. Just go look back at the duds from that 2012 crew. Grant it, it takes WRs 2-4 years to really develop, but come on...this is Toon's 3rd year and he can't make those monster practices translate to the field. I knocked the crap out of the baseball in batting practice and made very few errors in practice, yet I only hit .275 lifetime and I made some egregious errors at crunch time. Point is that an individual's practice mindset can be vastly different from that same individual's game mindset. I'm no Toon, but I think we share this debilitating illness.

I hope we stash Rooks on the PS. He is quite the enigma but the scouts and coaches must have seen something in him that they really liked sine we drafted him and I hope we get to find that out down the line.

Very plausible.
I can't believe any other team has seen enough of him to sign him at this point

I'm thinking that was the plan all along, we must have thought he wouldn't sign with us as an UDFA so we burned a late pick on him.

He's a 2 or 3 year project with a pretty good upside so its hard to complain about burning a late 6th on him.

Coleman and Toon may have notes in their lockers before long after the inconsistent performances...

Ravens RBs were in our defensive backfield waaay too much...

Re: 5 New Orleans Saints who hurt their cause to make the roster

saints have little address all the issues yall are pointing out. same issues as last year.

every team we have played so far in the preseason has let me saying

"Man they have better depth than we do"

a dozen good safeties will only take you so far.

here is to praying for a healthy year.
