Just glad you aren't our GM. Good luck with your career.

Re: David Hawthorne

Yeah l don't understand how he could have any supporters at all. He hasn't done anything for us and has been apart of the 2 worst defenses in Saints history. I was excited when we signed him but he has been a pretty big disappointment for us. I hope we draft some ILBs to replace him or keep him strictly for depth.

You can't please all the people all the time, but you can please some people some of the time. Maybe that is the curious case of the Hawthorne love.

I was in the same boat, I thought he was going to be a good fit, but he has regressed each year. I am very interested to see if we use that 2nd round pick on the best remaining ILB. I hope that would make him expendable.

Re: David Hawthorne

Stephone Anthony, Perryman seem like good players to take.

Re: David Hawthorne

Hawthorne solid bang for the buck. in other words cheapest option that can be productive

Perryman? i like the kids game but size wise i have real troubles seeing him in a 34. i think he needs 4 DL to get the most out of the guy

Anthony? Built for a 34 not as flashy as Perryman in college probably due to playing on a much better defense. how good can he get is the question.

Re: David Hawthorne

Hawthorn is better suited to play inside in a 3-4 D. I totally agree he stinks playing a 4-3. As far as Perryman, I'm all in on him, he reminds me of Sam Mills to a tee ,in a 3-4 set he will be a stud,not having to cover as much ground as in a 4-3 he gets off blocks well and puts people in the ground and able to blitz at any time on the inside is a plus.

Re: David Hawthorne

wasn't impressed by Hawthorne last year. Thought for sure he'd be gone, but I guess with the pay cut it makes sense to them.

Re: David Hawthorne

Ellerbe will be the starting ILB, and I strongly believe we are going to draft a ILB in the 1st or 2nd round. It is very possible Hawthorne will be nothing more than a backup. If that is true having a backup like Hawthorne would be a good thing. Hawthorne actually played far better than Lofton and Humber, not saying much but it's true.
