Saints rookie film review: If everything translates, linebacker Davis Tull could prove to be a steal for New Orleans

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Don't forget the Byrd injury too. That could've had more impact than we give credit for. Right or wrong, we'll find out this year....

Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but the tape I saw of Tull didn't impress me at all.

I don't know anything about him but I know for a fact our D cant get much worse especially at LB.

Forget the injury to Jarius Byrd, which would've seemed inevitable from his history in Buffalo...

The most overlooked injuries of the season were DE Glenn Foster (knee), John Jenkins (Pec, Abdomen) and Brodrick Bunkley (leg)...

And you're description of the front seven as "abyssmal" is spot on; and that's why we shouldn't be surprised at the results...

While this may not be a popular opinion, but I don't think we need to commit a big contract to Cam Jordan...

Time to move on if he's going to continue the Will Smith impersonation...

Dominating inferior linemen and balancing those stats against getting his arse handed to him when he faces quality offensive linemen doesn't justify a max contract...

Who can tell the difference of whether Greer was on the team or not? He was never healthy his last couple years. And Harper/Jenkins were terrible. We didn't miss them one bit. It was well documented how much we went away from the aggressiveness that made us successful the year before, and that was the biggest problem. And yeah, losing Byrd almost immediately didn't help any.

lmao the decline on defense started right after the patriots lose in 2013.

Rob did little or no adjustments to correct anything from that point on for the rest of the 2013 season. patriots mapped it out and Rob had no answer

2014 the idiot comes out with exact same defense but with a twist. CB cushions.

now he has added even more of his players to the mix so lets see what happens. our is that the next excuse he will milk for another year? gelling time.

i am expecting the exact same defense as the we have seen fail for a season and half.

stop giving this man all these outs.

Don't let Godhell find out we're stealing.
Actually, there is a real possibility that we get seven steals in this draft. Not to mention our UDFA's that should produce a couple of more steals. Wow! Our roster is getting quite the make over. I'm getting excited.
