I still don't understand why Goodwin got started over Lelito

Every game that Lelito played centre, he was clearly the better player

The consensus on how to stop Brees is to get A gap pressure so he can't step up and fire, with Goodwin in at centre, the blitz was constantly in Brees' face.

Exactly!! Stud C and replace 1 of the 2 G we have with a stud G and we are back in buisness. Of the 2 G Evans and Grubbs to me Evans got pushed around way more than Grubbs. I'm not saying Grubbs play was satisfactory in the least but put a stud C and stud G to go along with Grubbs would be smart. He does need to take a big paycut though.

Not a damn thing; seen that guy get thrown like a doll...

Remember that home game against Miami when Sproles bailed us out on those wheel routes?!?

Those young Dolphins were treating Grubbs like a b****!!!

Get that big boy Boling in his place at a better cap number, younger, and with more nastiness!!!

Would love to see Boling pancake one of those Seattle pass rushers...

I really like your idea of fixing the o line through FA,but if we can't afford a CB then I would rather see us pick up the Raiders center and maybe Jackson from the Texans. We can pick up Sherff or Collins if Sherff isn't there. But it would be nice to get a center,guard and corner in FA so we can draft heavily on the defensive side.

BIL is a Texans fan and he told me Jackson isn't worth the money, he's been way to inconsistent for anyone to throw big money at him

Hmmm...didn't realize that. Well,my first choice has always been Maxwell,but I think he'll be too expensive. But then again,I thought Byrd was too expensive and we fit him in. I guess what Sean wants,Sean gets and I know he's very aware of the CB situation.

Sadly what is the Saints loss is the Eagles gain. But if it is any consolation, at least Philly did not make the playoffs.

sproles started with a bang in philly , but as the season went he was being figured out, not counting being beat up like in new Orleans.

Definitely need a dislike button, no thank you for Bush.

Not sure that Sproles would have helped. Lack of protection for Brees was one of the biggest factors. In his last season with us, teams had figured out our Sproles plays.

I wonder what led to all the passes he dropped and the fumbles he committed?
