Dion Sanders said we now have the best CB tandem in the league, when taking about CBs ill take his word over yours.

You realize he had everything thrown at him last year because Revis was on the other side right? Before that he had Sherman on the other side so he was still targeted all day. Two superbowls in two years... and for all this over-the-top BS, I am sure Byrd will love that...

As for your last sentence "could go south real quick", you can say that about anything.
That was an excellent point. Revis one year, Sherman on the other. Constantly attacked.

Re: I thought it was the defense that was the problem that needed fixing

Oh boy! We won't get beat deep again! We may get a penalty but that is the risk playing with Browner. I'm curious to see how we handle nickel and dime this year?

We've got a lot of tall corners on the roster so now we need that smooth back pedal and quick hips guy for the middle of the field.

And yes, defense is the PROBlem.

Hopefully Browner can take SJB under his wing and shiw him how to use his size etc

I'm surprised most people haven't mentioned this. This could be huge for him to learn from Browner. Who knows maybe SP didn't want to throw him to the wolves just yet. Dixon and Frederick should be okay in the slot. I'd like one or two more CBs via draft and UDFAs just weed out the weakest link.

Edit: I completely forgot about the Breaux signing! I'm interested how he will turn out as well.

i am stuck in Boston so crazy might be a bit strong. stupid works

The pats ran packages in coverage as they always do but Kyle Arrington played extremely well and was the one they picked on the most. but teams did not fear Browner. 18 penlites last year was an all time high since his rookie year. he is just a hand check DB to the extreme. you name the foul he committed it.

with that said i like the attitude he brings but in no way can he run with the speed a true #2 in the NFL. now to get past Browner jam at the line is almost impossible to do. he is smart and knows right of the bat when he gets beat and will mug the guy before he lets him run free. that is acceptable in my book.

Like Byrd he is coming from the AFC and that is not saying much. His time in Seattle was against some pretty sub par passing offenses also.

Put him on
Mike Evans and Kelvin Benjamin all game long and the odds are very good he will shut them down. put him on Jimmy Graham and get the same results.

speed kills and quickness is his weakness.

Dion Sanders said? i will pass on that one

i will say it again i love the attitude he plays with despite the flags. flags are not always a bad thing and almost all of his are smart ones. but to keep the flags at a min keep him away from speed and keep him on the possession type of WR.

that is how the pats used him by season end

I don't know call me crazy but I think they blew up the wrong side of the ball
First, there's no "fire sale".
The Saints have traded 3 players, and in 2 of those trades, they got a player back. Of those 2 players, one is a LB, who played really well in Baltimore, but was palying in the wrong scheme in Miami. They have also signed a CB, and are waiting to hear from another. Yes, both are 30, but CBs and LBs are not RBs, and the NFL isn't Logan's Run. They are also bringing something sorely missing in the Saints defense: the nasty.

"... but the future..." The future in today's NFL is 2-3 years.

They have also released/not re-signed some defensive players who where under-performing in White, Walker, Lofton (and no, a bazillion tackles 10-15 yrds from the LoS does not mean you MLB is performing).

FA is not over.

Then there is the draft.

The Saints didn't "blow up" the offense.
* Graham and Stills are replaceable.
* PT (as much as I love him) was replaced by a younger, maybe better version of him (we'll have to wait and see what Spiller can do in Payton's system).
* The Saints sorely needed a center.
* Grubbs was under-performing and getting old, while behind him are what seem to be good, younger OL prospects in Kelemete and Lelito.

You couldn't have made the deals you did shopping around/blowing up/fire sale-ing the defensive talent you had, so something has to give ... you're still a top five offense, added some veteran presence to the defense (plus a damn good veteran center, the most important position on the team other than QB, IMO) and now you got all these draft picks to play with, not too mention CJ Spiller, et ... IDK, all's I can say is "look at the bright side" ... Saints are gonna' be a much better team in 2015, .

Deion Sanders said Malcolm Jenkins was a safety because he didn't have the hips to play corner. We should listen to Prime when it comes to his position. The corner he raves about in this year's draft? Senquez Gholson.

Wouldnt mind him if he was there in the 5th.
He cant play outside in division games as imo he cant be put up against Jones,Evans etc. But he would be great covering the slot
