Saints hope to strike gold with James Laurinaitis as they did with Jonathan Vilma

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Good looking Stats with the Rams. I agree he could take on the Field General role that we had with Vilma. Plus he says see ya! to Gregg Williams...

When I first read about this signing I was excited. Of course I've been excited about every signing we ever made. I'm an optimist.....what can I say?

Let's wait and see what JL brings to the table.
The reason they've had garbarge LB play is because they've had nothing but below average LBs. The 1st time the Saints finally decided to draft a real LB was in 2015. When Vilma, Fujita and Shanle left there went the decent LB play. People complain about Vitt not developing LB talent but look at what he's had to work with. Last LB they drafted before 2015 was Martez Wilson. See how that worked out. There was better LB talent in that draft than Wilson. After that they finally stopped getting their LBs out of the bargain bin. Maybe now we'll have some decent LB play. I meant in the Sean Payton era.

Not sure if you've read that article from Mike Detillier/AFC GM (Knives are out) yet but as he stated ... All those years of not hitting on draft days are catching up with them. Everyone in this league deals with dead money issues and some more than others, but this team really has not drafted well and even the 2015 crop is an up-in-the-air unit.”

I tend to agree with his assessment.

When it comes to JL = Vilma, its way to early to tell


I agree with that GM on that statement, the years of drafting horrible has caught up to this team. You can't field a competitive team when most to all of the players you draft in a given year are already out of the league. Last year they turned a corner and lets hope this year gives the same results

I did read it and I agree. Poor drafting is catching up to them. That's what I meant when I said they could have gotten better in the draft than Martez Wilson.
