Re: Saints can get something before sending 4th pick to NE.

Question is will they be smart enough to do it?

That's a great idea and it will benefit a team to take it BUT what will the offer be? Hopefully, the Texans offer a 4th and 6th.

Hard to believe no one wanted to move up, or did the Saints even try??? Even for a 7th round pick in the 2021 draft, or something???

The Patriots knew this would happen so they got rid of a pick they would have never had in the first place, smart move by them and a rather idiotic move by us.

What else is new on the Mickey & Sean show?

Why idiotic? If that was the only way they were going to make the deal then it had to happen. The Saints got as much as they could for Cooks in an attempt to improve the defense. Could it have been better? Yes, but only if the Patriots were willing to make it better, which they obviously weren't. Besides, what difference does it make to the Saints what happens to the pick they moved as part of the deal? It certainly makes no difference whatsoever in my mind.

Re: Saints can get something before sending 4th pick to NE.

Why where the front office stupid for that

Yes they could have made another trade but that means moving backwards in round 4 to maybe get a 5th or 6th rounder

How stupid would you look on draft night if someone fell to that pick and you missed them. There is nothing stopping them doing the same trade back and gaining picks in draft night.

So what the Pats now dont loose there early 4th rounder. We have the comp pick in round 3.



I dont get this whinging that Oh the Saints have made the Pats better. When you have not got out the division in 3 years thats the first focus

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Some people simply want something gripe and moan about, lee. There doesn't have to be anything pertaining to logic involved.

I'm simply saying that Cooks was worth more than what the trade entailed, we shouldn't have had to send them a 4th rounder because Cooks was worth more than the 32nd pick and a 3rd rounder.

While I agree that I didn't like sending the add'l pick, it's done...

Just wish there was more sanity and appreciation for draft picks by this club...
