I think that after we let go Pathon who was more solid then both of those at his position, The writing was on the wall. I know Pathon was a salary cap issue and the fact that Stallworth stepped into his role. With a few good TE availabe you could see this being the next logical move. They had their chance and really didn\'t do much with it. Now it\'s time for someone else to step in and step up.

I like Mili. He seemed pretty good for the Hawks. He started over first round pick Jeremy Stevens so he was doing some thing right. And he is still pretty young I believe and I am all for that.

Doesn\'t really matter how they feel. The NFL is a business and it seems like the Saints are starting to treat it like one. When you don\'t produce you get replaced with someone who can. Now if they could only address another position on offense...

To be honest I Don\'t know too much about him? I know that change at that position can\'t be a bad thing. I was really dissapointed in BOO Williams performance last year as were most from the sounds of things. Any idea on B Frank\'s situation in GB? I heard his name come up a few times before and then it died down. GB looks like they could be going into a transiton phase and I wonder how that would afffect the re signing of Frank\'s? Also with the FAVRE decision still being up in the air?

JENGA....I Win!

Mili:
Itula Mili is deceptively quick and a rough and tough receiver, blocker, and presence in the offensive set. Despite not being a threat downfield, Mili has displayed the ability to recognize options in the short to intermiadiete passing set, while maintaining the toughness to catch the ball across the middle, in traffic. He rarely makes a mistake in his routes and is dependable, though he is far from an elusive target. Overall blocking skills have improved with experience, Mili remains a far better receiver than blocker. Despite shortcomings in the blocking scheme, he will be far from embarrassed or blown away by the opposition and sheds blocks effortlessly to get into the pass pattern. Knee injuries have been an issue throughout his career, but Mili has shown the toughness to play through injury and pain.

Doesn\'t sound too bad. Not too bad at all.

I don\'t know about Franks SFN. He seems to only play in the red zone these days, but not as effectively as earlier in his career. Mili may be a better option, and less expensive.

I know, we really need to bring in a true RT.

I think just the fact that he plays tough is a huge upgrade over the guys we have now...

With the Additions to the O line..and this guy possibly signing...Deuce must be smiling right about now...

1600+ yards for our running game isn\'t too far out of the question ..especially if the F.O. continues to astound us..and make more true impact signings..

I never thought I would say this...

We are begining to have a very good Off Season..
