If we could re draft, Eric was definitely the guy I wanted.

In the box he excels but everywhere else, he becomes a liability. I wouldn't be surprised if the Saints FO turned the page on Kenny next off season.

Kenny is playing well since the benching.
Maybe the kick up the backside needed. If he performs keep him if not find a true hard nosed SS

We didn't use him correctly to start the season which isn't his fault. DA was doing his best impression of Sean Payton and tried to out think everyone and it just didn't work with Kenny V. He needs to play to his strengths, which is an in the box safety with good short distance coverage skills.

He is not and should never play FS!

Watt was never going to get through the back for the first round though and Pittsburgh sure as shootin' took him at No. 30...

It would have been interesting to have had a front seven of Onyemata/Rankins-Davison-Jordan with Kikaha-Klein-Anthony-Watt...
