We all know by now that Sean Payton doesn't have the patience to wait until #62 overall. It will be interesting to see if a trade is made and use future picks.

By the way, the Pats have 12 picks in the upcoming draft.

Damn man .

It is a testament to the ability of Belichick the way he can develop a roster. They build a team and not just collect talent. He never falls in love with a player but the value they bring.

Love em or hate em, I have a lot of respect the way that organization can assemble Championship winning teams over the last decade. I've never seen a coach who can take non stars and make them prime time.

He's a Yoda.
Yeah, Bill doesn't like a bunch of noise in his draft room...

Wished my favorite team (Saints) could prepare, draft as well as my 1A team (Patriots)...

Payton likes to hurry up and get back to other things...

Too bad he doesn't have a strong value for draft currency as the Patriots do...

And it doesn't help having Mickey "Rubberstamping Yes-Man" Loomis as GM...

With us having one pick late in the second round I'm not expecting much from the draft.

First and foremost I still want the best O-lineman available. We might package all of our late round picks to try to move up for a player since we have a stocked roster and last years picks were fairly good but couldn't make the roster.

Edit: Loomis will probably bring in a couple of prize free agents and a lot of mid tier talent as well to fill holes before the draft.

Our 2nd round pick could be golden ... maybe even a stud who drops for whatever reason.

Belichick really proved himself as the GOAT this past year. For him to win the SB with this specific squad that is weaker than a lot of past Patriots teams, it says a lot.

All we heard about all year long was how this Pats team was not that good. The usual arguments were ran repeatedly: "The AFC East! The AFC East! They're only good cause the AFC East!" People focus on the AFC East, as if the Pats don't dominate the rest of the NFL. The only division they have struggled with historically is the AFC West and that has mostly been because Denver and K.C. occasionally beat them. They dominate the AFC North and AFC South while having the highest win percentage since 2002 against the NFC conference.

I told people for months that they would blow through the AFC playoffs, and all along they argued with me non-stop every step of the way. The Chargers were supposed to beat them. Big LOL... The Chargers were the biggest pretenders in the AFC this year and the Pats easily rolled them (The Chargers needed a miraculous comeback against Pittsburgh and K.C. to even make the playoffs. They overachieved). The Chiefs horrible defense doomed them in the AFCCG.

I used to chat football on a Steelers forum and a lot of their fans often pointed to the 1989 team as one of Chuck Knoll's greatest accomplishments and proof that he was still a great coach after the 70's.

The '89 Steelers started the year out getting outscored 92 to 10 in their first two games (including a 51-0 shutout to the Browns). They some how pulled it together and made the playoffs at 9-7. 1989 was probably the height of the AFC Central division. That year, Cleveland made the AFCCG, Houston was in the playoffs, and Cincy had the best divisional record yet didn't even make the playoffs. Then there was Pittsburgh who struggled all year with their division, finishing 1-5, yet ended up in the playoffs with a negative -61 point differential. (Cincy finished 8-8 with a great point differential and should've been in the playoffs, but they went 2-6 in non-divisional games. By DVOA, the 1989 Bengals are one of the strongest 8-8 teams in history)

From there, they went into the Astrodome and took down the Houston Oilers (even getting Jerry Glanville fired over this loss) before losing 23-24 to Denver. That Steelers team had no business even making the playoffs and they had a deep run (and most likely would've beat the Browns in the AFCCG, after Pittsburgh handled them easily with a 17-7 win in Cleveland). They most likely get blown out badly in the SB, but it would've been an achievement to get there. They had no business even making the playoffs, let alone nearly being in the AFCCG.

Last year's Patriots reminded me of that Steelers team, except Bill B went the distance and won it all. Even had we reached the SB, I don't think we would've beat the Pats with how bad our offense had been playing for a month.

I can guarantee anyone that Bill B. would've game-planned to take away Thomas and Kamara, forcing yet another game of Brees trying to beat a team throwing to the cast of no-name receivers, as he had been doing for the past month. Meanwhile, it would've come down to us hoping and praying the defense could save the day again.

We can bring in a Oline free agent and save that 2 nd rd pick for Isabella? Itís a win win

I'm scanning "top prospect lists" from #20 all the way to #80... anyone in that range can rise or fall to us

While the cost of getting into the Superdome has risen, only one team (Jaguars) has boosted ticket prices by a higher percentage. But no one is charging more for hot dogs than the Superdome. These above-average hot dog prices at the Superdome are making the Saints' high price hike for beer easier to swallow for fans in the Big Easy.
