Free agents saints signed were available for a reason

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It's BS and the Saints are an easy target, especially since Browner and Byrd are still so fresh in everyone's minds. Regardless of what you think about the guys we brought in, you have to give Mickey and Sean credit ...

Regardless of what you think about the guys we brought in, you have to give Mickey and Sean credit for making things happen. Times Picayune sucks, and I really think some of our local journalists have it out for our brass, b/c they don't kiss their asses!!

FA and the draft are like baseball. Batting over .330 for a career gets you consideration for the hall. Anything better and your a shoe win

Re: Free agents saints signed were available for a reason

We have always been seconded guessed as an organization and with justification in years past ... They criticized us right up to and after we won the SB ... I read it all blow it off the current Managment gets it right 85% of the time ... We needed depth and improvement on the defensive line and LB'rs ... I think Mickey has worked his magic with monies available and improved both of those units with more still to come ... In Mickey and Sean I trust ... I Enjoy the ride however it unfolds.

Look I think the article fair in terms of the guys we landed on D. They're not great. May prove helpful, but not world beaters. I disagree about Fleener.
