Totally changes the mindset and this game probably goes down to the wire.

It's the biggest impact play I've seen on defense in the past 3+ years.
Guess it's really nice to be on the other side of that scenario...

At this point if Crowley keeps it up it will make it a difficult decision to put Breaux back in as a starter.

First of all Crawley is the real deal. Miami took the opening kickoff and were driving down the field like weve seen a million times when Cutler put one up and Crawley snags it. He didnt stop there either. He almost got another one too and he got his hands on other throws too. If nothing else Crawley has good hands and ball skills for sure. Hell get pushed around by bigger guys I assume but he can run and if you make a mistake hell make you pay for it. As far as tackling hell never be a big hitter but he seems to be a willing tackler.

Crawley reminds me of a younger, healthier, available Keenan Lewis...

Yeah I was saying since the first week Crawley should have started all 4 games. Mrobably would of beat the Patriots if he did. Harris, and Moore got hurt which gave jim a chance. He definitely gets the starting job. If they don't they are dumb. They are dumb enough to notvstart him all four games though.

Question for the forum, how good will our secondary be when we have all four of these corners available?
"gel time"

I look ay the group and rate them as not bad with a huge incomplete. Delvin Breaux is the huge key to knowing were we stand. The secondary needs "gel time" as a unit. Playing time as a unit will cure most of their issues.

"you can never have enough good CB"


So I am always looking and the draft has some solid options in it on day two and three. FA should have some solid options also. I expect to see a few more new faces in 2018.

So CB Ken Crawley is safe and he is proving his worth with every game. But adding more talent is always welcomed

SS has been on my off season needs list since before we drafted Kenny.

Right now I am more concerned with SS than CB. Bell is trade bait still IMO. Is Kenny Vaccaro worth 4/21M contract? That is the FA question of 2018. Would not bother me at all

Kenny is a great pest as a third safety but Bell is turning into a carbon copy of Kenny but not nearly as good. I had him peg in the draft completely different. IMO because he is a major handicap at FS/ So keep him in the box and use what he is good at and cover up what he lacks. Thus another Kenny.

But adding a SS with coverage skills that can drop into the slot will greatly improve this secondary. Kenny is not the answer and neither is a WLB.

A FA seasoned vet with proven leadership and skills would be perfect for such a young secondary but the money will be step 4yr $32M range.

Morgan Burnett SS/FS/CB Packers 6013 209 4.51

Which brings back to. Is Kenny Vaccaro worth 4/21M contract? For me it is a hard question. Kenny and Burnett would be a great pairing. Talk about coaching up Williams at FS.

so I look to the draft

Ronnie Harrison SS/FS/CB Alabama 6011 214 4.54 #15 Jr

This is the key IMO the saints secondary has been missing for years and these two would be great answers to that need.

SS is the biggest bang for the buck or pick in 2018 for this defense.

SS/FS is wide open for upgrading.

CB I feel very optimistic but they need a change in luck and a healthy run of games
