Why is Devante Harris still on the team? Although I think both of the penalties thrown against him were bogus, I just cant see him making the final 53

With all that athleticism I bet if he was black you would like him.

I liked Hill, he seemed to play with attitude and little bit of a chip on his shoulder.
Still a little raw around the edges but the talent is definitely there.
I think he's going to be an excellent QB.

GEAUX SAINTS!!!

One thing I forgot to mention, the play to Kamara that looks like/can be a quick out where he also can release, is going to SCUFF some teams up this year.

Re: Post Game Saints vs Jaguars Observations

I thought that Lawrence, the DT, had some plays, and Clapp showed some promise as the C.

It was nice seeing P-Rob and Bushrod back in the black & gold, and both performed well IMO.

Savage was way too conservative with his throws, and he failed to pick up some open receivers further down the progression. On the other hand, he looked more confident than Hill, but he was playing with the starting offense, so he was in a much better place to perform.

It sure looks like the defensive line is going to have nice rotational depth, but I'm looking forward to seeing Davenport and Okafor at the DE to see where they are at... Jordan is a given. It'll be interesting to see where Kikaha winds up playing when all is said and done - he did look pretty good on couple of plays, but the competition is tough.

I find it strange that they lined up Davis at Will, Klein at Mike, and Anzalone at Sam. I would've thought that their best fits would've been Davis at Mike, Klein at Sam and Anzalone at Will. But I guess Nolan knows couple of things more than I do about LBs.

Overall, very positive first glimpse of the potential this team has.

Taysom Hill was arguably the Saints' most impressive backup QB candidate in Thursday's preseason opener, going 8-of-9 for 72 yards in the second half and running the ball seven times for 52 yards (including a 3-yard TD run). The second-year pro started a little shaky, nearly throwing an interception and taking a couple sacks. And the Saints would probably like to see him stay in the pocket a little more often. But if they believe Hill can move the chains one way or the other, he has a chance to beat out veteran Tom Savage for the No. 2 job behind Drew Brees.

GETSOM TAYSOM!

I want to see a heavy dose of Hill this preseason. Savage isn’t getting any better. As long as he continues to get it done just keep Hill in.

I want to see more of him as well. My biggest concern is that his playing style is going to get him hurt. Does seem to have some talent...hope he does well!

They have all said that Lattimore was beat by Michael Thomas on a play or two here and there. And he was. But, Thomas faces him most every one on one and is one of the very best in the game. He will win his share. But what you choose to ignore are the other 95% of the plays where Lattimore dominates in practice.

You have always had a tendency to gravitate to the lowest common denominator as far as opinion of our Saints. You hear one negative and it dominates your narrative from there on out.
