Well Snead has to worry about his role

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Colston missed games last year, Cooks missed 6,and Snead even missed one. It's a long season. Seven guys caught 30 or more passes. Plenty of love to go around....

I don't think we have the O-line to run a five wide set often. We need additional blockers for Drew. jmho

Saints offense is at its most potent when we keep rotating weapons on the field like a hockey team changes the lines...

Keep going back to the game at Pittsburgh when we annihilated the Steelers at Heinz field, and Jimmy Graham was out...

All players should worry about their role - that's a healthy thing for NFL players so as to avoid complacency...

But what you're gonna see is a time share at the "X" receiver between Thomas and Boldin with Boldin mentoring...

However, anytime that so much hype gets out like this before a signing announcement, it usually doesn't happen...

True. Fleener and/or Boldin might need to line up next a tackle to chip a defender. I envision Drew getting the ball out fast too Patriots-style.

Re: Well Snead has to worry about his role

All I can say is why didn't they catch the balls enough last year. If a receiver is on the field for all of the snaps. Then he makes 7 out of 10 targets. If he's on the field for half, he makes 2 of 5.

Also, call me crazy Brees didn't really spread it around last year, at least not in the redzone, which is where we mostly stalled. Cooks, Watson, and Colston(yes, Colston) were the main redzone targets. That has to change.
