I don't know about that.
Did you watch the Denver game? Emmanuel Sanders owned him. I'll be careful with seahawks players (other than obvious ballers) . I don't like their coaches but they are doing fantastic job.

I think he is really the only CB right now that may help out. but cap wise i just do not see it happening anyways

P.J. Williams, CB, Florida State
Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State

would be nice in round 1. so far they both have looked good. i am leaning towards Trae Waynes right now. not the freak athlete like PJ but it seems he plays smarter

We say that every year, but somehow Loomis works a miracle every year...

True, but that miracle last year included parting ways with a bunch of players and several others shifting money into 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Byrd contract - Questionable, he's a fast player but so far not a difference maker he was painted out to be

Junior contract - Boy did we screw up there, he's completely lost his drive and effort to be great, when he doesn't beat the O line now he just stands around!!

Jimmy Graham contract - very hot and cold, he has something about him that makes me hate his play - mostly when he gives a lackluster effort to make a catch when its not right into his body, then stands around like its someone elses fault or looking for the flag

Very dysfunctional on both sides of the ball and I can't wait until Ingram is healthy, so far he is showing that he deserved the fifth year option not Cameron Jordan

After only 4 games it appears we may have gotten two things wrong.

We over estimated how good our front 7 was.
We over estimated how bad our secondary was.

We probably should have put more emphasis on improving the front end instead of the back end.

I think his injuries are part of the reason he didn't get the option. Besides the fact that the fifth year options on RBs is grossly over market value right now.

To be honest I never liked the McGriff signing as db. coach. I'm a Rebel fan.

Trash article...

I started laughing at the "Safety wasn't exactly the most pressing need", anyone who has actually watched the Saints play could argue it was absolutely the most pressing need and has been for some time now.

Bottom line: if the Saints could rush the passer like they did in 2013 this article wouldn't exist and the Saints would be 4-0.

Agreed, the cap in future years should be no one's concern. That is one thing Loomis has done well. Evaluating defensive talent in the draft... not so much.
