I never understood the point of a long snapper and why the kicker or punter can't do both. It seems like a wasted roster spot to me.

Surprises:

Guess Coach likes calling his kicker Cobra Kai Forbath; once again, while the competition was close, Barth performed better but was let go...

Only kept one Defensive End with size, Cam Jordan, who can anchor the edge in short yardage, and heavy run situations...

Kept three "speed" rushers in Kruger, Edebali and Gwachum; it's why I've listed Onyemata on the edge behind Cam Jordan...

Only seven offensive linemen with Armstead aching and moaning this early? Who's paying the bills for Barnes through Week 1?

Besides the obvious at Right Guard, I hope we're looking for another big receiver that we can trust to protect the ball?

The big FA signing is gonna shine like a big black eye when Fleener is unreliable in must-have plays and we still have holes on this roster...

No one will be asking 'Who?'when it comes to Hoomanawanui with no TEs that can block (and fewer who'll reliable catching the damn ball)...

Really like Tommylee and his story, but defenses are gonna be looking for sweeps - so what's the use when he's exposed on pass plays?

Since that playoff loss at Seattle Beastquake, I'd favor plenty of RBs, but either Ingram, Spiller or Hightower will be traded, right?!?

What's the over/under on roster moves for the Saints by Tuesday after Game 1?

What will happen to him when he is kicking in big situations ? I have never seen a more scared player than him when it comes to kicking in the clutch.

Barth was as cool as ice.

From your lips to the Saints' (in Heaven) ears...

Don't think there's a better game planner/manager in the game, but Payton really handicaps himself before the game with many of his personnel decisions...
