It sure is just do the loomis signature move back load the contract of landry and then apply the rob peter to pay paul move and back load other players contract or convert it to a signing bonus to free up some cash problem solved.

P.S. please know im serious about landry but joking about how to do it

Re: So how important is Lattimore?

Make no mistake, when Goff heard that Lattimore was out he would have thought all his christmas’ come at once. Let alone when he also found out Crawley was also out.

While it would have been nice to beat the Rams our season will be defined over the next five weeks.

WHO DAT?!?!

Re: So how important is Lattimore?

At the beginning of the day you would have thought only giving up 26 points would be good enough.
The offense didn't do their jobs of scoring points and staying on the field. Take away Kamara's big run and we had >50 yards rushing.

Add in Sh***y special teams and you're not going to win, with or without Lattimore

Re: So how important is Lattimore?

We invested poorly in the secondary for years and now a lack of depth is really hurting us.

For those who argue we did lose THREE starting CBs - just imagine what we could have done instead of Browner, Byrd and the kid from Nebraska.

I'm pretty sure missing your top 2 starting CB's (3 if you count Breaux) would be significant on any team.

We held the Rams to 26 points ... 26 points with backups ... this is a team that has scored 40 burgers almost weekly ... Come on Man ... dissapointed we lost but think about it 26 point with our 2 best CB's out. We have come a long way in a very short time not only with team play but with some of our fans level of expectation.

Name me any team that could have preformed any better with their 2 top CB's out ... Don't think you can ...

It sure didn't help kicking to Pharoh Cooper either. I would have much rather we kicked it out of bounds. That's a real threat for the Rams.

Better for sure.

Just not there yet.

Also, SP will always hinder the run game. Just the way it is.
I don't agree with that...

I think we are the best team in the NFC. If our starting CBs play we win this game easy.

I honestly think we need to address the future at QB via this draft. We also need better receivers, Coleman, Snead and Ginn just aren't getting it done.
Salary Cap, Salary Cap, Salary Cap...

Past three years we had one, two shots in FA, and if we missed - 7 & 9; for this offense, our receivers are just fine...

Not sold on Mass&Ass at RG and Peat's a LT and has to play there now with Mr. Glass always missing time...

Show Hendrickson, a rookie who's had limited, effective reps compared to his other Saints Rookie Classmates, some love as he'll get better with more reps...

We absolutely need to get Drew's successor in this draft; Drew's still better than most NFL quarterbacks, but he's not long for the sun...

Inconsistent push and disruption from the NT and DT3 is our problem on the defensive line...

And in today's pass-happy NFL, you've got to be four-deep at CB and three-deep at S, and we're close, but not there yet...
