-Warren seemed to be the best safety in preseason. Made plays and was always around the ball.
-SJB by ALL accounts was having a great camp and preseason. Has one bad game and pissed Payton off and he's gone.
-Every one else I understand.
-Dixon and Wilson have never looked good. If they're counting on them, it's going to be another bad year on D.

The Warren cut is a head scratcher, but SJB had more than one bad game. He graded out our 2nd worst defender in the Pats game as well.

He had a few good practices but that was it.

Wilson was better than SJB, and Dixon players special teams which SJB did not.

SJB may be back on our practice squad, but I'm getting the feeling we have our eyes set on several other CBs that may be more promising.

He started camp late due to his college... and he was mid first round...mot early. Early is like top 5 or 6

Deuce was pick 23 and he had less than 100 yards rushing his first season. I think that turned out fine.

Running back is a much easier transition, so the 10 spot difference is easily negligible.

The simple fact is it matters who is in front of you and for all of us to pretend it doesn't is not fair. Had he come in and the likes of Chuck Brown been his comp then I'd be highly upset, but with how things are I am not upset at all.

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

I think SJB goes practice too, if soemone doesn't grab him

Tackles can be productive for up to a dozen years. Just beacuse Peat isn't ready to be an All-Pro with his first game doesn't mean that the pick is a waste.

Frankly, anything the Saints could do to move Bryce Harris is productive.

Streif and Armstrong have both been in and out over the last two years. Even if Peat isn't ready to start, having a tackle with the fundamentals that can be put in without too much of a dropoff while he gets a redshirt year to learn the particulars of the position really isn't a bad idea. Let's not forget the guy is switching ends of the line from college. That isn't a switch that happens instantly.

The current construction of the Saints starts with the O-line. Watching Brees get beat up last year was painful. And quite a bit of that happened when Strief and Armstrong were not available. The addition of Unger, the insertion of Lelito, and addint Peat as a backup for now greatly improves Brees chances of staying off his back.

That works for me.

Two (Spiller,Robinson) are likely injured enough that they will not be seen for a week or two. It's likely that Hightower will be the odd man out once one or both get healthy enough to play.

I see spiller maybe even Ingram but robinson had a broken forearm no tendon tears or ligaments, how do you see him missing some games? Is he hurt right now? He looks like our best back to me

They were 1st up to place claims on players too.

I think we may have lost a decent QB. He lasted 1 waiver claim.
