Tough call. Some of that will depend on who our defensive coordinator is next season. My initial thought was to let Bush go but I have no real reason for that.

Re: Are the young bloods on d really better?

We almost let Bush walk this year. They will keep KV around IMO. Warren laid some wood in that game so, if they continue to play at a high level, I say Keep KV in his 3rd spot with Warren and Byrd at safety. We still need linebackers that can run, not just thump. Hawthorne, Lofton, and 98 (mind went blank) are all severe liabilities in pass coverage. We need a Vilma out there.

Re: Are the young bloods on d really better?

I remember watching highlights of Pierre Warren before preseason started and being very optimistic about him. After the first couple of preseason games,I was pretty excited about him. Glad to have him back. On a different note, I think Vacarro is having a bad year. He is a very talented player and it showed last season. I like the idea of Byrd and Warren deep with Vacarro roaming around closer in. Bush can be substituted in when needed. We have talent back there, we just need somebody to bring it together. If we can grab a good cb in FA and draft a stud LB or two ( preferably without a history of injuries),I think we would be set on D.

Don't think so. It appears we cut him from our PS and Vikes signed him in Oct. It was a surprise.

New Orleans Saints roster, practice squad: A closer look at 3 newcomers | NOLA.com

November article above says: "Pierre Warren

An undrafted free agent out of Jacksonville State (which he left after his junior year), Warren was a standout in training camp. So it was a mild surprise when the Saints cut him from the practice squad.

The Minnesota Vikings added him to their squad in October, and he worked there until he was signed to the active roster by the Saints this week.

Warren is familiar with the defense and showed a knack for making plays in camp. While it's hard to imagine him playing a lot on Monday night, the Saints have so few options that it's possible."

The difference between Cutler and Ryan is night and day.

Our secondary was able to prey on Cutler's mistakes. Matty doesn't make as many.

The team that lost to the panties last week would have made the yogi's look like SB contenders. So I would say this was a vast improvement.
