The only statistic that's relevant to Hawthorne anymore is how fast the Saints to cut his sorry unproductive butt when the offseason starts. He'll be one of the first to go, I promise you.

And one other stat you forgot to look up, Humber will be a FA and only 2 years younger than Hawthorne.

If they can find someone for under 2.8 million to replace him that's better I'll be right there with you. I just don't see it happening.

According to NFL.com game logs, Humber started 5 games and had 19 tackles. As opposed to Hawthorne's 47 tackes in 11 starts.

That gives Hawthorne an average of 4.2 tackles per game and Humber an average of 3.8. Wow, so much difference - except one of these guys made 3.5 million this year and the other made 630K.

Since you like statistics so much, let's do a cost-benefit analysis.

Humber gets $21,724 for each tackle he makes

Hawthorne gets $74,469 for each tackle he makes....and is only marginally more productive.

You can figure it out for yourself from here, I am sure.

The fact that Hawthorne only had 47 tackles and played 90% of the snaps says it all.

Stats tell a lot of lies. Ill never agree that we should keep Hawthorne or Bunk and PFF a stat site would agree with me.

PS you seem to have omitted the fact that Humber did have one sack this year. Not zero, as you said earlier.

5th highest paid player on this team didn't play. Amazing how the money works out. Yet, when Khiry runs the ball he does it under a shower of peanuts.

Wow.

Lelito has played like a stud though, just about every time he steps on the field - except for the first half of the Cardinals game last year when he got thrown in the fire. Since then, he's been money.
Lol kinda like advocating trading Graham for O line help?? Im glad you see that now Jack ha. We're in a tite space but hoping theres a quick turnover this offseason, bc next years schedule is lookin pretty darn favorable. Hopefully emotion & loyalty doesnt outweigh what has to be done to save this team.

I sure do hope so! Draft multiple LB's to compete for that spot. Michigans Jake Ryan is someone who could play any LB spot & had somewhere in the 3-4 maybe 5th round range depending on how it plays out. Need help in a bad way.
