Glad Saints made the right decision and Byrd got the bench. We'd be 0-4 right now if we didn't have Bell in their to tackle hard and force the Gordon fumble.

Finally getting brave by benching a player. I waiting all season for them to bench browner and it never happened. Von bell looked much faster, more athletic in general and hits waaaaayyy harder.

FWIW, Byrd may have been benched but he is still a true professional. Noticed him coaching Bell on the sideline after that blown coverage TD.

Re: Byrd Has Been Benched

Byrd always looked like the mind was willing...
The body just wouldn't go: gears slipping, sputtering and back firing...
Always a step or three late.
He can definitely help the younger guys with his experience and support.
Kind of expensive for a DB coach.

Re: Byrd Has Been Benched

Bench anyone who gets beat a lot, misses blocks, misses tackle and commits turnovers. we have 3 fumbles and 3 interceptions thru 3 games and are plus one on takeaways. We're ranked 12th best in penalties. We're 6th in total offense. We've allowed the most points in the NFL but we're 3rd in points. There are a lot of bright spots for us so far and I agree get rid of the crap and start the younger players. Even if we end up 7-9 and the younger players kill next season that's better than having no chance at all with the older used up models.

What's that I wonder?

Laurinitus getting benched?

Not sure we can afford to bench him right now. After watching the game yesterday I believe the only other lb worse in pass coverage is his replacement Robertson.
