You don't have to sell me on this point TR. LSU has the crystal trophy to prove it. Just playing Leinart up for trade purposes.



sorry, bro.. not calling you out or anything like that, just wanted to bring it up

If I had to, I would trade to #2 or 3, and get D'Brickashaw or Ahmad Brooks...Unless all of the LB's we have suddenly become all season like the last 4 games last year. I wouldn't mind either of them.

Good call. Brooks or Chad Greenway. D'Brickshaw as well, but if Stinch REALLY is in a position to take over the LT spot, D'Brick would be a waste. But Brooks is a monster at LB or should be, as well as Greenway or whatever his name is. Maybe trade down some more and get Hawk.

Chad Greenway? Is he a CB? I figured Hawk is supposedly really good too.

Greenway is a LB too. And AJ Hawk is supposed to be a beast as well.

Anyone who thinks that needs to put down the stuff they are smoking and tune into some reality.

This isn't really a question for you then. But for everyone else, what if the unthinkable happens and we have a terrible season? Like, #1 pick terrible?
I think that is possible with a couple ofr key injuries.

Because of Brooks' salary we know he would probably be gone,
Correct.
and A-Mac gets minimal time in mop up duty so gets to play some, but possibly is not ready to start.
I hope not. If this team were 1-8 or something like that I think the kid should get some considerable playing time in the latter half of the season. Personally I'd do exactly that Coughlin did in New York. However they were 5-4 when they made the switch.
The assumption would be Haslett would be gone. SO with a new coach, and maybe new FO, do you think they should take Leinart with that number one pick? He's a stud QB, possibly a Peyton Manning type who has won it all twice in college, even without his best receiver. Even without a new coach or FO, do you take the shot on Leinart? Could be the quarterback here for the next 10 years. I don't think there is a DT in next year's draft worth number one overall, so do you pull a Deuce, draft Leinart even though you have A-Mac, and make him our guy?
A-Mac is an unknown quantity. Leinart has played in Norm Chow's pro offense under a former NFL head coach. Carson Palmer has shown that it isn't just a system.

I'd pull the trigger.

Just a though, not saying this would happen, but would you want Leinart?
I wonder if anyone has two picks in the first round next season?

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

I think next draft, no matter where our pick is, that we will take a LB. The LB pool coming out next year is going to be AMAZING. Besides, I think our FO wants to give A-Mac a chance IF Brooks has an awful season.

Chad Greenway > Hawk, Brooks.

Watch one of his games next year, I promise you won't be disappointed.
