Strategy for Remaining Season?

Well...

While mathematically still alive, we're done - that's our reality.

Should the Saints start playing rookies, younger players over expensive veterans?

Is it time to go into an evaluation process? See what we have on the roster before the offseason?

I'd like to see Andrus Peat at one of the offensive tackles opposite Armstead...

Also, I'd play Coleman heavy minutes to see if I need two or one add'l wide receivers...

And I'd sit Byrd, let Kenny V show his hand at Free Safety because I'm not sold on him at SS; hell, I don't know that he has the maturity to be on this team...

Wouldn't hurt to see some 3-4 with Edebali opposite Kikaha; let us know if we have options with regards to Cam Jordan should an offer present itself...

If we are going for the best draft pick, best to have Browner out there as much as possible.

Seriously, I'd say don't be afraid to rest guys if they are a little banged up.

From here on out I'd like to see Cooks, Coleman & Snead as the big three at WR. Marques is struggling and had another crucial drop ... the time has come to develop young talent and see what's in store for next season.

As far as Kenny V goes ... sorry but the dude can't cover. Either Dennis doesn't know how to use him or Kenny's play has worsened + he has been flagged for stupid personal fouls at the most inopportune time . I do think we need a premier pass rusher and possibly another Free Safety (maybe Buffalo knew what they were doing). I saw a lot of GRIT from the the defense however upgrades are needed. Giving up 450+ total yards today is not the recipe for winning.

KV had some boneheaded moments but he was all over the ball and hitting hard. Hes actually had a decent year. I dont think it is personnel in our defensive backfield that is our problem. Aside from Browner that is. Browner has to go and should get the boot tomorrow.

Re: Strategy for Remaining Season?

Vaccaro may be our 3rd or 4th worst player on defense. I'm not impressed at all.

He'd probably be the worst FS in the NFL.

He's a SS, and not a very good one.

I remember going back and forth with you over the years about Harper and Jenkins... At this point I must say I was wrong.

Byrd could pan out well if we didn't handicap our coverage to make up for Browner but vaccaro is bad. I never thought Jenkins and Harper were good individually, but they had chemistry together and that really matters.

Re: Strategy for Remaining Season?

Put Grayson in, sit Colston and lets see what Coleman, Snead and Cooks can do as the main guys.

Re: Strategy for Remaining Season?

keep slugging it out. mix and match in the secondary till something works to some degree. Defensive talent depth wise has a long way to go. It will take more than a few years to repair the damage caused by ROB.

Been screaming about Kenny before we drafted him NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO but since he is here we should take a look at how the cards use Deone Bucannon. third safety in a semi LB roll. Kenny is no Deon but he might work out in the roll.

Draft a true modern day safety!
Jalen Ramsey, S/CB, Florida State, 6005, 202, 4.49

FSU has him at CB and he has shown signs as be just ok in the roll so he should be on the board. I would venture to say he is the best FS/SS hybrid to come out since Deon. Bit since Deon has proven to be the steal of the 2014 NFL draft the price has gone up. He is not as physical but the kid is smart.

CBs for the love of god make one requirement a necessity. Tackling

see off I go wanting to fix it for next year so play them all see what we got.

Oh by the way Senio Kelemete? why the love? he is next on my draft hit list along with Lelito. 2 back up a start does not make.

round 2 OG? round 4 yet another OG?

Right now our best weapon is to keep this defense off the field as much as possible for the next couple of years and keep putting up points.

play them all and pull drew when you really start to get desperately screwy with the line up. we got two backup QBs we can sacrifice for the cause.
