Got me, Rez. All I'm hearing is he's getting even better with experience.

I always say, if it’s one position I know it’s corner. Lattimore is the least of my concerns. Crawley is the one who needs to get his head around on deep throws and catch the ball when it hits his hands.

I was very impressed with the way Maulet got his head around and tracked the ball on that one go route he defended last night.

Maulet has potential to make Crawley a very, valuable back up corner.

Yeah I read it too. The writer or whatever said something like that then finished it with, "but I'm not worried" or something.

Re: Post Game Saints vs Jaguars Observations

Some thoughts about last night's game:
  • Though the RB, WR, OL, were "1's", Brees sat so I'm not real panicked by the blasé offensive performance...

    ...after all, the first series saw Tom Savage throwing to Garret Griffin to convert a 3rd down against the Jags "No. 1's"...


  • Brings me to this - Payton & Co isolate QB vs QB in with the same variables (i.e. plays, personnel) so they can get a better sense of these reserve QBs...

    ...and on that note, comparing the two QBs styles is night and day - Savage is a conservative Brad Johnson style while Taysom Hill was more of a, well, TBD...

    ...what jumped out at me was Savage played smart, threw tentatively, whereas Hill threw with more authority, made bone-headed mistakes...

    ...and if Payton likes to gamble in drafts, why did we not spend last year's sixth round pick on Chad Kelly from Ole Miss??? He's looked great in Denver ...


  • Not ready to jump on the J. Williams band wagon, as I want to see him against the 1's; but Will Clapp, now, well he looked like a man leading that charge...

  • Brandon Tate wasn't consistently awesome in the return game, but if he can get it past the thirty or get fifteen yards a return - he's got a job...

  • And where was Tommylee last night?!? Does it matter if he can't get regular season looks?

  • Mitchell Loewen (not Lavin, Joel Myers you ****ing twit) is an active, leave it out there player; but he got hurt again playing that style?!?

  • To see Patrick Robinson play with instincts, turning his head on the ball and knock away a sure touchdown was a thing of beauty - really liking his re-signing...

  • Demario Davis is supposed to be a smart linebacker; so I get needing a learning curve, but that was about as dumb a play on the goal line as I've seen...

  • Our fourth Nose Tackle, Stallworth, is better than most team's starters - seriously; Loomis should be busy next week picking up third day draft picks...

  • Yeah, it's early, but I'm saying it - Dan Arnold is making this roster; yeah, he needs weight, but his key block sprung Scott to the goal line...

    ...and as only a rookie, he's already a mismatch in the passing game and has the best hands of all our Tight Ends already...


  • Going back to Clapp, he had the reserve units lined up and played well even against a few 1's last night - I like his chances of making this team...

  • Did anyone notice that Jamerson was the next cornerback up when P.J. Williams got shaken up last night? Like Jamerson's chances on that left side?

  • Colton Jumper must've been real tight, because that's got to be a record for missed tackles for a Mike Nolan-coached linebacker...

  • In my mind either a strong safety or middle linebacker should be your best, fundamentally sound tacklers on the team - WTF is Vonn Bell doing?

  • Seriously, seriously, seriously think Natrell Jamerson needs to see time at strong safety - Vonn Bell is gonna cost us games this year...

  • David Onyemata is an absolute freaking beast; que the sound of the apologist for Rankins among the announcers - we'll see what develops...

  • Trey Hendrickson has an incredible motor; right now, I'd say his ceiling is easily Will Smith, and that's not too bad for a late third round pick...

  • Did anybody catch Alvin Kamara throw a pass block on not one, but two Jacksonville No. 1 defenders? Did you also see Payton play it safe and sit him?

  • CantGuardMike is the early favorite for team MVP for this team's season; that was two of the best CBs in the NFL he text-booked last night...

    ...if not Mike Thomas, watch for Marcus Williams - this is a hombre en fuego, mann auf einer mission, a man in the zone...

Re: Post Game Saints vs Jaguars Observations

I can't help but want to WIN, so every year I get caught up in that and fail to recognize it's preseason and winning isn't (necessarily) the point.

I was pleased in general but our LBers didn't impress.

We're going to cut a lot of people who might have made the team a couple years ago.

And I don't care. I want Hill to be Drew's backup. Logic be damned. LOL

Y’all May have heard just one guy but I heard Bobby, Deuce, and Garic all say the same at some point during camp.

I have also read in daily camp recap articles about him being beat to come up with this conclusion myself.

Two other posters have backed me up saying they read it or heard it somewhere themselves on at least one occasion.Do you think I would just lie about it being said multiple times?
