Reuben Foster

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Sorry the way our D plays... no one's job is safe. If we draft BPA and they turn out better so be it. We are in this spot because no one of them go the job done....

I believe you! But he hasn't done either - be healthy or make our defense better. Plus he's 32 in November. Please don't tell me you're counting on him to be the man this season either...

Reuben is an upgrade.

Re: Reuben Foster

Ellerbe is unreliable has never been able to stay healthy. Foster is a better player . A difference maker we need on our defense.

I like him. When he's on the field he does make a difference in the way the defense plays. The problem is getting him on the field. No he is not the answer but you need to bring somebody in behind him to learn the ropes.

Re: Reuben Foster

This team is soft and folds quickly. We have way too many "nice" guys. This team needs mean mot***** on defense. Reuben Foster can make this defense a lot scarier.

To an extent we are soft but I always thought we were devoid of talent (excluding Cam Jordan, Rankins & St. Nick Fairley) & not enough play makers/game changers ...Reddick, Foster, Allen, McCaffrey, Hooker, Howard or Lattimore could be on the board.

Pick #11 will be golden.

I think we've been a slow team, especially at the LB position. It's like you said, the overall athleticism is lacking. That's what has been scaring me about Derek Barnett as of late. I was content with him at 11 until I started thinking about how accomplished Hau'oli Kikiha was as a pass rusher in college, and I'm not sold on Kikiha at the moment. Marshon Lattimore or Reuben Foster at 11 and we have to take Sidney Jones.

If Sidney ever really recovers then yes.

Learn the ropes? We'll need someone to START in place of Ellerbe by week 2 when he's injured!
