Notebook: Marcus Ball may get start at safety

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; For the " It can't get any worse" crowd, we kind of said the same thing about Gregg Williams. Then we got Spags. I know it's apples/oranges but we should never ask the "How can it get any worse?" question....

Re: Notebook: Marcus Ball may get start at safety

I wish we would have kept Warren over Ball, now since we are depleted in the secondary I would love to see SJB at the SS spot, he has the size, speed, quickness, to cover and is a hitter, trail by fire but I could see this to be an advantage in the long run. Lewis, Robinson, White, SJB, Dixon, could work. More CB's than S.The way Vaccaro has played and is now running his head might get himself on a short leash quick.

Re: Notebook: Marcus Ball may get start at safety

I know there's better dbs sitting at home than what I've seen in Ball. i'm no coach but man are we in trouble. he looks like he doesn't have a clue most of the time. but then I was on the vacaro bandwagon before the season started and said he would be a pro bowler his second season. man was I seeing the same guy. whatever injury he had is still working on him. or is it the fines that he got tamed him a bit.

I think part of the issues with Vaccaro has been changing his role and trying tp adapt to playing with Byrd and then Bush and now whoever else. Plus the lingering effects of injury.

he will okay long term

And wtf does that have to do with anything? That has no correlation to the present situation

You'd be better off to relate another teams safety problems to ours, and that makes absolutely no sense...

The Saints signed Pierre Warren off the Vikes practice squad.

Re: Notebook: Marcus Ball may get start at safety

Well we all expect the worst now. Defense will take the field and we'll have dread every time Flacco drops back (reminds me of Reggie fielding a punt or Hartley kicking, lol).
But hey on the bright side, we may all be pleasantly surprised. AS LONG AS the front get pressure, otherwise it doesn't matter who is back there.

Gregg Williams ? really the guy was a genius given the players he had to work with. he got canned just when the youth movement was getting started. ego manaic or not i can not take that way from him

Spags? round peg - square hole dude. beat it all you want it aint going to fit. But to his credit he did have an eye for talent.

Rob Ryan? what a mass media con job. system failure for over a year with no repairs, draft picks? never mind do not get me started on him.

How can we get worse? keep wasting draft picks and throwing money at so few players as to eat up the cap so you have no room to move. well at the least two more years then there is a light at the end of the tunnel. then again without adjustments to the defense it is pointless. do not say injuries are the reason either.
