OL never get any respect

cap wise it cost us 2 mill because we had to eat jimmy's dead cap money. now 2016 the impact will be felt cap wise. 2016 cap issues just got better.

i do not think they are done yet either. draft day trade involving players is very possible.

washington trade up? jump ahead of the jets could cost us another pick or a player/ washington has a new coaching staff in place and one thing they like is a big OL.

next cap move OG plus picks to washington in a trade up?
OLINE is so important, so important. Great post, and Unger, from all I have read, is very good. Still young too. Good Post Hag

I disagree, priority was center, but yes we can use guard help too. Let's see what the rest of FA and draft bring

Our offense is much closer than our defense to producing well, and really just an oline away, first piece that was highly needed...center.

Mick said this was to fix the D, s I'd expect some moves to come on that side too.

We could be the Eagles who just let their best RB leave, their best wideout, and traded their QB for a QB who has had two acl injuries two years in a row for the Eagles 2nd, 4rth, and the rams 5th. LOL.

I like you defending your opinion amongst a group who disagrees, but thank god we're not them

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

defense is a mess and only got worse. they are not going to win us anything, bend do not break is the best we are going to get. offense is key.

as drew goes so do the saints. he can step up this year unlike the years past.

now we need a tall WR

I do recall winning the SB without Graham, with a good center, and a TE on one leg. I may be wrong, though...

Could it be Sean|Drew know something you don't? I don't know. What I know is, the last couple years, Graham has not been exactly a deadly weapon. The injuries, the drops, and the disappearances in big games... the stats may be there, but stats only win games in fantasy football.

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

Drew's numbers are still top shelf.
Our problem is defense. we couldn't even stop a clock.
Payton's offense is plug and play, we will be OK on that side of the ball.
We have to figure out how to get our defense off the field on 3rd and 17,
how to find some corners that can actually look over their shoulder while running,
how to actually wrap-and-roll and make tackles.
There goes four(4) additional wins right there.
Graham did his job while he was here. Thank you Jimmy!
Next man step up. PLEASE.

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

I'm curious to hear from Jimmy... I'm sure he's probably livid and waiting to calm down a little.
