Rod Gardner please!!!!!

hi all, been quite a while since i have been able to surf bng since i started back to school full time while still holding down a job and family but anyway

the skins have given rod gardner permission to seek a trade, i know the saints have needs slightly more pressing than WR but they really need to jump on this guy

lving in the DC area i have the unfortunate pleasure of being dragged to skins games and gardner is actually a pretty damn good wideout, probably the best one the skins have, his numbers don't show it due to the fact that the skins don't have a clue offensively and gibbs likes to run run run

he has better hands than pathon (to all of the old timers, i apoligize for the pathon vs horn argument at the beginning of the year, i was wrong) or stallworth, having gardner would be a legitamate no2 threat which should open up stallworth in the slot vs LB's and safeties, i know we tried that this year but gardner would comand much more respect than pathon by opposing D's

they are asking for a 2 rounder and in this year's draft class i don't think there is anything to be had in the second round that would be better decision than gardner who still relatively young

That\'d be an interesting acquisition, but my major concern would be spending 2nd round picks on WR position in consecutive years. I don\'t know too much about Gardner, but I see our need as being for a possession WR. Is he that kind of player?

He is more of a down the field threat and does not have the greatest hands. Although he does have better hands than Stallworth and would be an improvement over Pathon. He was a former first rounder and had one pretty good year before he got into the doghouse over there. But as far as a second rounder, I would say no. Deep draft and we can easily draft a guy with first round talent in the second round. I would agree a 3rd rounder though because he does a around a 2mil plus salary. Washington will get some cap relief and a 3rd rounder(deep draft, will get a good player with it) and the Saints will have a complement to Horn.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

We are well enough at wide out..

Focus on the Defense...make our weakest points stronger..before trying to accentuate the stronger spots..

I like our chances with the receivers we have now, wouldn\'t mind Stokley though if it was a good deal for the Saints but that too would kill a draft choice for us

No thanks we have Horn, Donte, jerome, Devery, M lewis, T gardner. We are pretty set at Wr. Concentrate on OT, DT, and LB!
