I think there was some regret in letting him go originally. Virgil may not have star potential, but he damn sure has rotation potential.

Exactly! We don't need four All-Pro Defensive Linemen, but a rotation of six or seven defensive linemen up front, all with different "games", variety without a drop-off in play is the key and will keep the horses fresh for four quarters, sixteen games plus tournament play...

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Five Players who are vulnerable, in my mind, on this team:

RT Zach Strief - Underrated player who's sabremetrics suggest same; age is a b*tch and the first round selection of Peat suggests same...

LG Tim Lelito - Underrappreciated former un-drafted rookie; Senio's been getting the snaps, but that could just be exploratory...

RB CJ Spiller - though it seemed like a 1-2 punch when Ingram, Spiller signed; the Back half can't get out the Trainers Room...

FS Jairus Byrd - it may be time to cut losses now and remove the distraction and reminder that sometimes Coach Payton is wrong...

CB Keenan Lewis - no one will question his heart, pride; but the physicality of the game has taken its toll on Lewis...


And I still think we should have brought in another punter...

Watch out here ^^ ... Coach has given CJ a clean bill of health coming off OTA's. Good players don't suddenly become terrible. The guy is still dangerous.

Fingers crossed that he remains healthy.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Hoping for the best from Brandon this year but do you remember just a couple of weeks ago Brees made a indirect reference about rookie WR Michael Thomas knew what he wanted & to make adjustments if he saw a certain coverage? This is where Coleman has struggled. If you aren't on the same page as Brees, there could be problems (trust/targets).

Coach Payton will give him his chance to shine in year 3 (see Toon). Good luck BC!
