When it comes to cap relief,Over the Cap shows that 2016 will be a good year for us. It's like that year is a release valve for all the backloaded contracts.I wonder if Loomis purposely planned it that way?

Re: Saints Can Clear $20M In Cap Space

Everyone thought the same thing last year. Don't you guys remember the falcon fan forums going crazy when we signed the number 1 FA out there.

This year we might land 2 big time FAs along with some solid role players.

Think about it.

Aside from 2012 (no head coach) and 2014 (no clue), this team has made the playoffs 5 of 7 years.

2010 - Lost wild card by 5 points (away)
2011 - Lost divisional by 4 points (away)
2012 - No HC
2013 - Lost divisional by 8 points (away)

2014 was a kick in the nuts to a coach who had admittedly become somewhat complacent.

People were fired. Reinforcements were hired.

Is there anyone you fear more than a rejuvenated Sean Payton?

IMO sitting out 2012 took away his fire and his balls, he looked passive at time with those readers on. I couldn't tell if that was Sean or my grandpa on the sidelines at times

Fix the LBs. Need youth and athleticism. Inside and outside.

Fix the secondary. Need a true #2 CB. NOW.


We could go into training camp with some very interesting pieces.

Give Brees another 2 seconds.
Limit the run.
Limit the deep plays.
Tackle well.
Create a few more turnovers.


I'm digging 2015 already....

AMEN! Knew You'd Come Around And Now You've Seen The Promised Land my Brother!!!

Re: Saints Can Clear $20M In Cap Space

I've been calling for several things over the years:
Speedy edge rusher
Sideline to sideline LB
O line help

Re: Saints Can Clear $20M In Cap Space

I put a post on a thread a few weeks back. This is not the year to pay any money on a RB. Including 5/6 top picks in the draft there are around 20 above average/good RBs on the market.
