Grade the Saints!

This may be interesting. Maybe not, but I think it will...

Here's the deal. I've got each position listed both on offense and defense. Some positions are listed as a group, rather than being broken down individually.

Let's grade each one on a scale from 1 to 10. With 10 being the highest. A 5 rating would mean the position is only adequete. Anything under 5 would be less than adequete and anything over 5 would be above average. I think we're clear on the grading system?

I'll stick my neck on the chopping-block first!

Offense:
QB-7
WR-8
OG-6
OT-3
C-7
TE-5
RB-8
FB-6

Defense:
MLB-5
SLB-5
WLB-5
DE-9
DT-5
CB-6
FS-5
SS-4

Grade the Saints!

Offense:
QB-7 (Not great, not horrible)
WR-7 (Solid, but depth is a concern)
OG-5 (Fine but not impressive)
OT-2 (Terrible)
C-7 (Good, will be great)
TE-6 (Off and on)
RB-8 (Solid, but could improve even without a personel change)
FB-7 (Good)

Defense:
MLB-5 (Good and will improve)
SLB-1 (Horrible, not even a third stringer here)
WLB-2 (Poor)
DE-10 (Excellent)
DT-5 (Mediocre, but serviceable)
CB-7 (Can get the job done)
FS-6 (Can get the job done, but depth is an issue)
SS-5 (Could be higher than this if Bellamy ages well)

Special Teams
KR-5 (Could be stronger with a better supporting cast)
PR-4 (Too gun shy this year, as with last year)
K-7 (Good but aging)
P-9 (Excellent)

Based on the whole unit, not just the starter?
Offense:
QB -5 I rate Brooks a 7, but we have no one behind him
WR-9 If Joe leaves, I\'d give it a 7.
OG-7 No superstars, but I think we have 17 lineman who can also play guard
OT-5 Gandy is OK, but declining. Riley is the Grady Jackson of RT\'s, part time production.
C-9 We also have 17 linemen who have played center. Bentley will be an all-pro soon.
TE-6 They had an off year, again. But they\'re OK.
RB-7 McAllister is a 9, when fit. Stecker is a solid #2, but we have no #3.
FB-8 This kid looks good, and Conwell and Hall can both play FB.

Defense:
MLB-6 Watson should be even better in 2005. Ruff a serviceable back-up.
SLB-4 If the last 4 games were for real, I\'d give it a 6, but Hodge/Alen is pretty weak.
WLB-4 We have a glut of WLB\'s. Good depth, but no standouts. Colby
DE-10 We\'re loaded
DT-5 We\'re not loaded. Young needs a 2-gapper next to him
CB-7 If Brown continues to improve it could be an 8. Craft,Thomas,Ambrose provide good depth.
FS-5 Tebucky is OK, but we could do better. No depth at all.
SS-5 Bellamy is decent, but Mitchell should push him.

Well it appears to me the main areas of weakness are SLB, WLB, RT, FS, SS, DT, QB (back-up).

Kool, doesn\'t this mean so-so? If so, then doesn\'t that mean average? And if so how does so-so and average equal above average, which 7 would be? Just trying to understand. If you saw an average looking chic, you would rate her a 7? Hhhhmmm...........
