Re: Saints trade Akiem Hicks for Patriots Michael Hoomanawanui

So, we pushed more money into next year in the hope that Brees will pull a Brady for us for a trade of 2 meaningless players? An offensive lineman could do this guy's job. Hicks will do great in NE, we all know that. Our new TE will suck, we all know that. Personally, I hope Benson cleans house after this season. We have gone stale and lost discipline and I'm tried of watching the lathargicness of it all. Sean lost his swag. Byrd, Graham, Galette, and Brees are draining us dry.

I've seen too much football to think there is any hope for the Saints doing anything this season and beyond without major changes. The party was fun, but it's come to an end. And, yes, I will still root for my team. 0-3 with 3 NFC losses and 2 division losses, an even weaker D line and nothing from the TE position. That's not a hole that our team has the character to climb out of.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that Jimmy, glad it is going so well for you since you "got out of there", whatever.

Hicks being benched screams issues, and I don't remember anyone singing his praises this year. Hell, if we lose an ineffective DE and replace him with a ineffective DE, but pick up a good blocking TE, sounds like a good trade to me.

The D staff did not just walk in off the street and take the jobs. They were "Hired". Time to look at the real problem here. SP and Loomis have to be held accountable for their failings.

Re: Saints trade Akiem Hicks for Patriots Michael Hoomanawanui

In my opinion Hicks had lots of potential. He did make splash plays just not consistently. Which shows he has a higher ceiling, and yes NE will get more out of him than we did because they have a better coaching organization than we do. He very likely will become a solid contributor in their defense.

This TE is nothing more than a filler body at a weak depth position and the trade does nothing beyond getting rid of a guy who was walking at end of season. It's our fault we can't develop talent. He has some.

Interesting assessment of Hicks by Patriot reporter.

Because the Patriots have intelligent coaches that know how to use players and how to coach them. We have a bunch of pretender coaches that are leaching off of wins delivered 5 years ago.

It night be but you have to ask yourself why are so many players saying stuff like that lately...this past off season we got rid of some key players who were said to be cancerous. This leads me to believe that we really have some big issues in our management because you don't hear that from players who leave or get traded from orginazations like the Patriots.

Keep it classy Jimmy Dickens ... no need to bad mouth your former employer to the world. Saints drafted you in the 3rd, gave you an above average HC coach to learn from, played along side elite HOF QB to catch passes, surrounded you with a host of talent on offense and now you want to bash us??
