Also Mickey Loomis should invite Dean Blandino to his party bus or get him some hookers. It worked for Jerry Jones and Cowboys.

The offense also had the 5th most turnovers in the league.

Hell Yes they do, if you have a defense that is just a little more efficient than a screen door on a submarine

Re: Unsign Ingram and Draft....

"Saints signed RB Tim Hightower to a reserve/future contract.

Hightower, 29 in May, tore his left ACL in 2011 and has been out of the league since. He's had a workout here and there, but an infection in his knee derailed his comeback. Hightower was medically cleared just last spring. He'll spend the offseason with the Saints and try to earn a spot in a backfield that could lose both Mark Ingram (free agent) and Pierre Thomas (potential cap casualty)"

If we had a defense that didn't have the worst 3rd down conversions, we could have done a lot better!

Teams would get in 3rd and 15+ and have absolutely no problems getting the first...

Re: Unsign Ingram and Draft....

I would not mind getting him in second round if we can get Fitzgerald in the offseason. I am beginning to go back to what makes college players NFL successes. It is all about the name. Melvin Gordon is a standout name, more so than Mark Ingram was. He also came from a school where he was not part of a system. There is one dark area though...........Montee Ball went to this college too and he was drafted in the second round in 2013.

This was how I thought of things when I was more into college sports, I studied names to determine success. However some players(such as Chase Daniel) were never given starting opportunities.

PT hopefully has another year in him. Robinson looks great and has a bright future in the NFL. Bring in a good late round runner and we should be fine.
