Our 2009 team was built with nobodies like Anthony Hargrove, Bobby McCray and Jabari Greer.
i think most teams do. I remember reading that is the Packers philosophy.

As per the article, a lot of teams have a lot of money...
BUT, is waking up in Jacksonville, or Cleveland, or SanFran worth an extra million to Zeitler, or Bell, or Jeffery?

Re: Can the Saints afford a free-agent splash?

I like to see them change the mentally/apparoache when it comes to spending money.

Spend the money on the two biggest factors going foward on this team and that is going to be the O line and D lines. My thinking is this... we are going to be moving to a new QB eventually and that QB position could be a rookie or a way cheaper Bree's. We are going to need a OL to protect him better than we have done Brees as that QB develops ect.
