Lorig has been a huge disappointment. Wonder if they'll waive him after this season.

i am a bit surprised. but add him to the goose egg pile so far in 2014. traditional FB and TE seem to have little value to the saints

IMO Austin Johnson looked much better this year. Too bad he had to get injured.

Payton likes toys instead, I like smash mouth players. Seems we have quickly become the team of misfit toys.

I agree Matthew. AJ looked like he had some ability to push the pile on the interior and had decent hands and elusiveness in the flat. Lorig has looked surprisingly plain since he's been in and nothing like the Jed Collins, Heath Evans type players we've had at this position.

No, and the roll out on the scoring play was horid.

Re: Can Lorig gain a yard or break a tackle?

Payton said in the press conference, that the FB play at the goal line with Lorig, was part of a "sequence" of plays they had drawn up in that situation (because they went no huddle). I saw it coming a mile away, on 4th down.



Now, ask yourself this: if I can see it, and I'm in the stands of the terrace with glassy eyes and a flask and 3 Budweisers in me, on a Sunday morning, don't you think an NFL caliber defensive scout or coordinator or player, could see it coming for miles, too? It was a Totally Predictable Sean Payton (TM) playcall. No wonder it didn't work.

Of course, five years ago with Heath Evans or Jed Collins, and a young 25 year old stud Jahri Evans on that side, that play was golden. It was money in the bank to go to the fullback on the goal line. But that was five years ago !!! This is exactly what people mean when they say it's getting stale.

Anytime the FB is the primary option, it's probably not going to turn out well. I really don't see what they saw in the guy.
