Re: Benching Underachievers

I like the idea of benching the under achievers but I wouldn't suggest a mass benching until the Saints are out of playoff contention. Maybe target one or two of the worst to show the rest they're serious.

After the Saints are out of it, bench em all. Let the back ups get some experience cause these starters will have shown they're not the future.

Re: Benching Underachievers

It's too bad when players get their pay day, their performance falls off. What the H..l is the answer?

Re: Benching Underachievers

For your benching premise to work out it assumes those benched actually care and respond by being better. That's a suckers bet at best right now.

Graham? Why Graham? He's on pace for another monster season.

And RG4 or McCown over Brees?

Not getting that one.

Re: Benching Underachievers

This is ridiculous.

I still think coaching is the problem.

Re: Benching Underachievers

Honestly don't see the offense having nearly as many underachievers as the defense does. You may could make the case for Grubbs being in that group, since he ends up on his backside far too often for a starting NFL Guard.

This defense, however, is just littered with underachievement. And coaching is the problem when coaches allow players who are not performing to take snaps away from those players who can make this team better with their effort and with their play within the system.

I wouldn't mind seeing more of Sunseri in the starting SS rotation simply because of what is between his ears. I like KVacarro but he seems to be one step behind so far this season. Don't know if he is out of position but playing like a corner is not working.

Re: Benching Underachievers

I think if we just used him as you know, a strong safety with a clear, defined role, he could succeed, but whatever just keep using him to cover up deficiencies in the defense in roles he's not exactly suited for, like linebacker. I mean he does well for what he's used as which is a swiss army knife, but I feel we could do better if we just addressed the problem via FA, trades, or the draft.
