I\'ve changed my mind about Hartwell. I want him really bad now. I\'m friicking desperate for a LB. ANY proven one would do.
We just can\'t go into 2005 with Hodge/Ruff/Rodgers/Knight/ and Smith still on this roster.
We can\'t...can we?
:weepy:

We could..and just might...but...the bright side is...even if we get a different position with the 1st pick..we still have the 40th..and we can still get a quality guy from that pick...

Chances are, if we don\'t end up signing a LB through F.A....will will likely(hopefully) get a LB in the 2nd round...MAYBE in the first if you believe in miracles...haha

I want him too. We\'ve all been shouting LB on this board - and some of us have been doing it literally for years.

If Saints management can\'t figure that out, I won\'t be up for any season tickets, that\'s for damn sure.

I just don\'t understand it. Haz was a friggin\' LB, for Chris\'sake. Does he feel the position is just that unimportant, neglible? Unnecessary?

$12 million to sign on the line for a guy that has never made a probowl. beisbol like. but i do give the vikes credit for putting a big push on turning a porous defense around. can ya imagine dj added to them at pick #7? (tho i think someone would trade with tn for him at #6) they do have money but that sorta defensive push is what is needed in nawlins even if not on a smoot scale.

Everyone has said we needed to get Hartwell and others, but could Gleason leaving be a factor on special teams? We usually have an awesome ST but without Gleason would it falter? I personally would like to trade down in the 2nd and get Morrison, who I think would be a DROY choice IMO.

It\'ll be sad to see Gleason go.

The Hartwell thing sucks. I think we get Witherspoon or make the Howard trade for a proven backer (like Urlacher... ) or we may be in some trouble.

Smoot was a little unrealistic for us in terms of money though. Dyson is still available and a lot of others who can play the nickle (if you think Brown is serviceable, which I do).

Our options are dwindling... I don\'t like it.
