NEW OFFSEASON, SAME SAINTS
It’s been the same old, same old for the Saints this offseason.
Really, getting the 2nd ranked free-agent in Dwight Smith and signing a probowl guard in Maberry. When is the last time that happened during the offseaon?!!

While there was early talk of acquiring Pierce before he signed with the Giants, and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers outside linebacker Ian Gold, who signed with the Denver Broncos, New Orleans was slow out of the blocks.
Slow out of the box? Is that just Mike's opinion or does he have some facts to back that up? I see where no facts were given, so, I'm going to assume it was his opinion. The FACTS are the Saints were pursuing Pierce, along with MANY other teams, but the Giants made him an enormous contract proposal and Pierce cancelled all vistis with ALL teams.


The Saints did sign veteran Philadelphia Eagles offensive
This is the same Mayberry that in a previous article written by Mike Detillier in which he said the Saints' would probably never be able to sign. Great insight Mike D.

N.O. HOPES TO PASS TEBUCKY
The Saints have finally come to the conclusion Tebucky Jones is not worth the money they are paying him (No kidding!) and are searching for another starting free safety.
Finally come to the conclusion? When were they suppose to cut him Mike D? He's only been here 2-years and they are admitting their mistake by signing Dwight Smith.



Again, what we have witnessed is another example of a team content with being in the middle of the pack. The Saints want to win -- everybody does -- but they don’t seem to want to ante up when the price gets a little high.
So, Benson is satisfied with being middle of the pack. Mistakes have been plenty ... There's no arguing that. But, it seems to me Mike really doesn't know what Benson wants. And it seems to me that he's trying to improve this team this offseason.


I hate to say it, but mediocrity seems to be just right for the folks on Airline Drive.
For someone who HATES to say it, Mike D. says it in every article he's written over the past couple of years.

Good Ol\' Mike Detillier. I happen to know Mike pretty well. We did work together for Terry O\'Neill when Terry was in N.O. and then after he left, he started a website called RealTeam.com with Mike, myself, Terry, Dick Vermeil and others. Mike and I covered the NFL draft.

I have never really gotten along with him. I think he\'s a total fraud and he doesn\'t have access to the \"juice\" around the NFL. I am not going to get into the garbage he used to rant about a few years ago, but it seems that he has not changed. And to think our media here in New Orleans looks at him as a god is scary.

The bottom line is that our two signings have been good upgrades and addressed positions we needed to address. I still happen to think we\'ll make a play for another relatively high profile FA. I am not a fan of this front office, mainly because I know them fairly well and know what kind of \"football intelligence\" they really have. But facts are facts, they have made two quality additions to this team.

I\'ll have alot of news on different prospects and even where the Saints have players rated at in coming days. I still have some really good buddies who are on the scouting staff.

Billy, I get the impression this thread is meant to antagonize me. I would appreciate it if you would stop trying to piss me off. Because by starting a new thread like this when there was already one to post on, that\'s just what it is. Don\'t push me. We\'ve been through this before.

Nah, JoeSam, wasn\'t meant to antagonize you. The title of my thread was the sole purpose. I wanted to expose Mike Detillier for what he is.

Anyway, I\'m gonna take a break from the site for a few months. Things are getting a little too personal for me as of late.

Take care.

I don\'t disagree with what Mike D says. The Saints were slow out of the gates. They made up some ground, but I think he knows, like everyone else does, that our main need right now is LB, which they STILL have yet to address. I am more optimistic than Mike D is, but for the most part these guys have been the same ol Saints....refusing to address highly publicized needs. Just because he doesn\'t have a rosy outlook like some of the hopeless romantics on here doesn\'t mean that he\'s a fraud or this or that. He\'s entitled to his opinion like everyone else.

Come on Billy. What are you doing?

This seems like typical tactics of a die-hard Sunshiner. Any guy who has anything negative to say about the Saints you try your best to discredit. Mike D, like him or not, is well respected in the NO area. I would have thought that by now you would at least have learned to listen to what the other side says. If this is starting already, I can\'t imagine the frenzy you\'ll be in by August. I\'m betting we get an 11-5 prediction from you, only b/c you\'re too gun shy to go 12-4 again after last time. C\'mon man - this team has PLENTY of problems...

Like GT, I agree with Mike. The Saints were slow out of the gate... or maybe you\'ve forgotten the insanity on this board the first couple of days already. They haven\'t addressed their biggest area of need. And offering Haslett an extension and allowing Venturi to stay after FOUR STRAIGHT YEARS of mediocrity sure gives me the impression that Benson is happy with being average. Either that, or he\'s too stupid to figure out how to be otherwise... or IMO, too scared.

Dwight Smith the 2nd ranked free-agent? Really?

So with Shaun Alexander, Samari Rolle, Andre Dyson, Ty Law, Troy Brown, Donavan Darius, Fred Smoot, Edgerin James, Rudi Johnson, Derrick Mason, Antonio Pierce, and Ed Hartwell, etc. etc., Dwight Smith was the 2nd ranked free agent?

C\'mon Gumbo. That\'s a little too much.

He was the 2nd ranked SAFETY available in free-agency.

THAT statement I have no problem with, Danno. But once again Gumbo chooses to word things so that it sounds better than it really is.

I like alot of Gumbo\'s posts...even though he , at times, can be a bit much with the overly optomistic views..he\'s the kind of guy I used to be...

Mike D is just doing what works..negativity...I too get caught up in the black hole of grief from time to time..he makes a living out of it..

Either way..i don\'t take anything he ever says too seriously..but..his mock drafts are usually good...
