eyes open

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Since 2006, only Stallworth did anything with their new team after leaving the Saints and that was only one season. WR has been a revolving door and will continue to be with SP/DB here...

Re: eyes open

We let two of our successful positional coaches leave previously and thought we could replace them easily

Curtis Johnson - even our franchise reception leader (Colston) has forgotten how to catch

Dennis Allen - granted he's back, but our DB's in 2009 had such good hands

Aaron Kromer I know he been in some trouble (attacking a kid) but the OL been declining since his departure. Under his tenure as OL coach, the Saints sent five players to a combined nine Pro Bowls

Not happening this year, even if they suck. Even if Ryan was shown the door.

I think the o-line looked better last week then it did the entire season last year. We addressed in free agency and draft, brought in a stud at center, and it showed.

The playcall by SP and dropped balls by wide receivers.... that's anther story....

I agree they did great, still brees was sacked a couple of times which was very rare with Aaron Kromer coaching

Re: eyes open

Every season the roster will change.
We hope every (most every) position sees an improvement,
But money just won't allow that reality.
Since 2009 every player felt they needed to be rewarded financially.
Some got paid, some got paid elsewhere, and some we just had to let go.
Some got paid better than others which only leaves so much cap space for upgrades.
We've been fishing for bargain talent and hoping to strike gold.
Drops, missed tackles, bad angles, no sacks, poor and blown coverages...
Just average all over the field.
Looks like we are getting what we are paying for.

Re: eyes open

Malcolm Jenkins is playing well for the Eagles. And, Sproles is prolly gonna rack up some yards too. But, I'm not worried about our run game. I'm worried about our air game and red zone. Someone has to make touchdowns. Neither Watson or Josh Hill are doing it for me and I want them to shut me up so bad.
