If that would be the case, this whole forum would just be a bunch of homers cheering on every single move the Saints ever make without a fault - I for one don't see the point in that.

This is not directed at anyone in particular, just against this particular evolution of forum behavior that I've come across on various forums more frequently in recent times.
I think the real problem is attacking the knowledge of the front office when there's absolutely no way we know all the facts, and the one's we think we know, we don't really know.

We can criticize a player based on what we know and see on the field. which is probably about 15% to 30% accurate. We don't know what play was called, who was supposed to be where, who recognized a breakdown and tried to compensate and subsequently blamed for the breakdown when it was entirely someone else's fault.

But our knowledge of the business and contract side of the NFL compared to the front office is probably more to the tune of 5% to 10% of what they actually know.

We're merely second guessers. For anyone to suggest they know more than any NFL front office based on anecdotal hits and misses is shortsighted.

Even Jerry Freaking Jones knows more than all of us do!

I'm kind of on the fence with this one, the NFL.com article about this mentioned that Jordan is a good fit for either a 4-3 or a 3-4, but I think that is the problem - he fits multiple schemes, but rarely excels in any of them.

Still, he's a high character guy with a good pedigree, so the Saints could've done a lot worse.

You should give Loomis a break and extricate yourself from his posterior...

'76, we could only hope the message has been delivered...

I do remember something about Payton wanting to move, release Galette though...

nothing on spottrac or over the cap yet...

He was a $7 million cap hit this year, so expect that to come down, and the deal is really for 55 plus a chance at an additional 5
My guess is that it is cap friendly and that both sides are smiling
