Have you seen the decline in this team these past five years?

Do you think there is no correlation whatsoever?!?

I'd like to see Drew return the faith he was shown when first signed with a questionable shoulder and a mid-tier quarterback BEFORE Payton's system...

C'mon Drew, be a winner like Brady and be a team player...
The decline hasn't been 5 years. We were 13-3 just 2 years ago. Last year and this year is the decline due to aging OL and injuries on the D. We have a lot of young guys that should be much better next year. If Drew wants to be able to walk and eat solid food after retirement, he will sign a home town deal extension for 3 years which will help solidify the OL and maybe sign some help on the D.

It's almost verbatim what I'm thinking.

Re: New Orleans Saints salary cap squeeze

some point in time drew with Katie bar the door, enough dealing, extending, bonus bonuses. he will say cut this and go sign for 1 more 100 million plus in his last who-ra. like they the mannings , farves, stablers, all wanted. drew brees is as in shape as most rookies, he knows he can play as long as he can work out. its up to us if we will keep trying to put together a pathwork line with wanta bes and use to bes. we need to cut some age old asses like vitt that have no new ideas , payton that never will give up the play calling has to re idea his thinking, because it aint working unless its a pass or 2, we get nobody open because we run the same rtes from 2006 just different names, we go against worst wide out and tight ends and we don't cover because its not payton calling the plays in the game like in practice.

GO NEW ORLEANS

Buds, 13-3 was more than two years ago, brother...

Yeah, I think we finally have had a good draft...

But the FA signings have really sucked balls...

And this year to year, kick the can, band-aid fix for the salary cap has got to be addressed...

Loomis has this under control. If you doubt it you simply aren't paying attention, or you're dumber than a box of Cam Newtons.
Thats why I say the problem isnt so much Loomis. He has always gotten us under the cap and enough under it to sign at least one top teir free agent. Its not his fault those players dont work out as well as planned. If Byrd had come out of the gate screaming and if Unger made a bigger impact we would all be praising him right now. Loomis finds the money, its not his job to figure out who to spend it on.

Brees will restructure an extension basically the same as that of Brady. And Brady was no team player in that deal, either. He got his.

Re: New Orleans Saints salary cap squeeze

Its not the cap situation that has us in trouble. Its scouting and decisions on personnel. Loomis finds the money, every year and he can keep kicking it down the road and working magic. The problem is what the coaching staff spends that money on. Like I said earlier. He always gets us below the cap with enough left over. Its not his fault it isnt spent right. He will restructure Drew, work some magic and get us under the cap again. We will find a big free agent or two and hope to god there are different people on staff who know how to get the right personnel . The cap doesnt worry me one bit.
Byrd, Unger, Browner, Ellerbie were supposed to be upgrades and we got them signed.
