A guy that can consistently beat one on one coverage and make the big play

Other than cooks and Graham, we just have a bunch of underachievers and Jekyll/Hyde players
I disagree. Solidify the O line and Brees can make stars out of nobodies for another 4 years.

Attrition and injuries have had an effect in this season like we haven't seen before.

We're missing more than a few dropped passes from Colston...

Re: WR Depth Chart

I want to see COLEMAN on the back of a Saints jersey. Get him out there.

Agreed, but I think the issues on offense are much easier to correct than the numerous issues on defense.

Excellent OG's, RT's and OC's can be had in the middle rounds of the draft. CB's and LB's are a bit more difficult to get in the middle rounds.

You are 100% correct in that if we can beef up the interior, Brees can be quite effective for several more seasons.

Re: WR Depth Chart

We should have made a play for Beckham.

I agree. When protected Brees has made all WRs look better than they are. Kurt Warner disappeared for about 5 years until he was put behind a line that could actually protect him.

Until he met us.

I think Beckham went higher than most expected him to

Most draft boards had him still around at 2 picks infront of us, I don't think anyone thought NY would take him at #11

We may have, but at #11 it would have cost us a lot.

Slowest possible set of WRs basically. I say WR1-Cooks,WR2-Jimmy Graham, WR3-Morgan, WR4-Toon, WR5-Tanner-Colston-too slow, Stills-no heart-lost 2 yds on a reverse against Baltimore. Fell straight backwards untouched to avoid getting hit>(probably screaming in a high pitched voice),"DONT HIT ME, DONT HIT ME !!!" All future TEs are block first guys that run good routes, cattch the ball and block like another lineman.(Hoby Brenner) Watson is acceptable.

Re: WR Depth Chart

I believe our offense looks best with Graham at WR and with a TE who can run block. After that our best WR are Cooks and Morgan. Stills and Colston are equally mediocre. We should give Toon and Tanner some looks. I'm gonna keep reminding everyone that Morgan is taller and faster than Odell Beckham Jr.

Re: WR Depth Chart

With Brees as the passer, Payton is gonna have to geaux with bigger receivers with larger catch radii so that a passer under pressure doesn't have to be as accurate (which made the Cooks selection puzzling)...example, Jimmy Graham...

It's a smoother chuck and duck passing system...

There are only a handful of defensive backs who have the athleticism to challenge the height+wingspan of a good 6'4"+ receiver...

Benjamin made more sense than Cooks and would have been there without sacrificing a third round pick, dare we guess a linebacker, and would have been an ideal candidate to tutor under Colston...
