Posts like his really bother me. Like I’m not excited enough for the season so they tease me with more offensive talent. SP should really be ashamed.

If you have four receivers you want to get snaps, then drop all four on the field and let Brees pick his poison.

When you have Kamara, 3 WR set with a blocking TE is usually the best option.

We don't gain much from our running game when we run a four receiver set. I don't think we'll see much of it though unless we can't get a good option at tight end. The good thing is most of our receivers block well.

I don't know Rugs, remember running the bubble screens out of the 3 & 4 WR sets with Pierre Thomas that featured very well-coached, disciplined down-field blocking...

Our no-huddle, 5 WR sets have always been something I like to see us run.

If I recall correctly last year when we ran the four wide receiver set we averaged a pitiful amount of yardage. Most of our yards came on a long run from Kamara. Also, this isn't the same receiving group that we were playing with then. Who Knows? Maybe this group will gel and be able to produce from the four wide sets.......but without time together I'm looking at last years results in the rear view mirror. Kamara can run routes as well which has me excited.

Sean's right about week to week. If the defense's CB3 and CB4 can't cover dick, make 'em pay.
