Goes back to my theory... you put on your rosters players that will help you win now. Griffin isn't one of them.

We wouldn't have to rebuild if Griffin was on the roster; we'd just reload...

Ah well, F*** it...

I don't know how much Fortt has to offer mid season if he comes back.

Re: Saints Bring Back Meachem, Fortt to IR

I think people tend to evaluate Griffin the way they do mainly because he's a Tulane graduate. If he had come from another program; I don't think he would be held in such high regard.

I truly haven't seen anything spectacular from him this far... at least nothing that SP couldn't coax out of some other low-round/UDFA prospect.

And 31 other teams didn't claim him off waivers

I agree with that FinSaint.

Case in point: Meachem will see the field more this season than Griffin even if Griffin was on the roster.
