Unfortunately Dennis Allen doesn't doesn't use guys like Von Miller and Khalil Mack properly as seen in his last two stops where he had them playing strong side LB in his 4-3. Sadly, it's the same fate that awaits Kikaha. These guys are edge rushers but Dennis Allen has his system and that's that.

Really impressed with Trevathan; really hoping we can make a run at him and Damon Harrison...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

NT Damon Harrison should be the Saints No. 1 priority in recruiting free agents this coming offseason...

But Danny Trevathan was pretty impressive yesterday running all over the field in coverage against the NE RB James White et al...

Sign those two guys, get Brees, Colston, Armstead some updated contracts...

Maybe sign a guard in free agency - Ryan Wendell comes to mind...

We'll be right back in it...

Von's rookie year under Allen he put up 11.5 sacks playing roughly the same role and rushing the passer about the same amount. Khalil is a good pass rusher but I'd like to think that Von Miller is a more natural pass rusher.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Von Miller was beastly last night. They won that game on his back with some help from Ward,Jackson and Wolfe. Manning is done,they won in spite of him. Bringing him back as the starter is a mistake

I just feel that after it took Gronk to almost tie the Denver game, Brees needs someone to be clutch. Getting all these players who will never be elite is just not the way to go. I would like for Brees to restructure by 10 mil, other players to restructure, Colston to move on and saints to sign a big receiver.
What big receiver on the open market?!? Anquan Boldin?!? That's it.

We have better on our roster than will be available...

We can improve the defensive line with the a top 3 nose tackle in Damon Harrison...

We can improve and round out the linebackers with LB Danny Trevathan...

And we could acquire an affordable guard in Ryan Wendell, allowing the team to move on from Jahri Evans...

And if Colston would restructure and come back as a slot receiver as a 3rd down and end zone specialists, why would we not want him back?

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

looks like Loomis' magic tricks are about to catch up to the team. I normally don't second guess him but without a Brees restructure, you can forget this team improving besides through the draft. 14 Million tired up to players no longer on the team , good lord that's a lot of money
