He probably just said Carroll because of how much success he had in college, which didn't fully take effect in the pro's.
The tone in the interview suggested it was more than sour grapes; he even acknowledged that Payton put him in the best possible position to succeed...

You can tell by the way he sat up in the chair he had more respect for Carroll; this is the interview...



At 5:07 Bush tells you the best player he ever played with or against...

Brees = no brainer

Senio is a no brainer in my mind,.Josh did well as a third too in his limited action. If the price is right would seem like a solid backup until we have something proven better. I thought George johnson really played well for us. Would like to see what that guy has to offer next year and let him compete. Zach is solid. I would bring Okafor back, he was having a really good year. Give him another one year deal. Due to the injury can't think he'd be expecting a lot.

Mauti and Hughes let compete?

Kenny I am torn with.

Big Hitter, the Lama.

I think a WR or at the very least a good TE is more important than people think.
Teams are going to work all offseason to find a way to stop our run game. We need to be able to air it out if we have to.
There is no way we can afford to eat TAs contract. I think his cap hit this year is 12-16 million. They may restructure to free up some room and let him walk in a couple of years. I hope SP has learned from these stupid contracts.

Think there's a general consensus that Saints Fans want Senio Kelemete back, but he may want a starting gig, with starter's salary...

You know who we need to go after in FA? NT Justin Ellis from the Raiders. 62 and 335 lbs of mountainous run-stopping goodness. He offers nothing as a pass rusher but he can be a relatively low-priced key addition.

Even if he doesn't get the sacks, he's got to get the pressures, crushing the pocket so the Ends can clean up...

My ideal get would be DaQuan Jones. 64 and 322 lbs of great interior pressure AND run defense. Might be pretty hard though to pry him away from Mike Vrabel and Dean Pees in Tennessee.
