Nick Foles is a proven vet who knows how to win & when healthy L Fournette is a dawg running the rock.

<--- circle the date. This game will be at their place & the Saints need to be ready. Bortles is long gone.

Can't wait.
I’d take Ramsey over any corner in the league. That includes my boy Lattimore. Jalen is the only person I’d take over him.

Only guy with his speed, quicks is maybe Peterson; and I get the smack talk...

Reminds me of English Literature/Nordic Epic Poetry tradition of Beowulf - boisterous bragging yourself into a corner where you have to succeed against tremendous obstacles...

But he needs to leave the other BS and politics talk at home and take care of business and more fans will flock to his game...

Know one thing, watch him flat-out shut down AB in regular season and playoff game - it was beautiful to watch...

Beowolf is actually a really good comparison. And I remember that Steelers game. I was in awe, because even with all the extra ****, AB is one of the best receivers I’ve ever seen. Jalen Ramsey is a freak with that combination of size and speed at cornerback. When he gets old and slows down he’ll easily transition to safety. Between him and Derwin James, Florida State is obviously wasting the DB talent they’re bringing in.

Odd comment, I must say.
nothing odd at all. I know i'm watching entertainment. I dont waste emotion on it, like a child. I'm a fan of the nfl. I like to watch sports, not the Saints exclusively. but its only so painfully obvious over the last few years that the nfl decides who wins.
the Saints will at the very best, make it to the nfc final again this year.. but even if they do, they will lose. its not up for debater, its not maybe, its not who knows? they might. they wont. its a stone cold guarantee that they wont.
its been the saints entire history except the one year after they remodeled the stadium. Season 100 will be about teams older than the 1960s. the nfc south division wont matter

Jags need another receiver, but they look like the team to beat in the AFC South...

Don't care what last season's records are, at the end of the year, the Saints will still have one of the toughest Strength of Schedule Ratings...

Re: Nick Foles’ leadership stood out during Jaguars’ offseason program

Foles, the common knock on him is he's a great paint by numbers QB which is fairly accurate IMO. Technically, he has been on 4 teams (Philly twice).

I thought it was three to be honest. He should not be bouncing around like that if he didn't have some major defect. If the game gets off script too much he mentally breaks down.

Strange from a guy whom broke Brees' numbers in the very same Westlake High School in Texas

By advanced stats, Foles is a middle of the pact, average QB that would be lumped in the category with the Dak Prescotts, Eli Mannings and Joe Flaccos.

He played way over his head in the Eagles SB run, but it was mostly due to them having a super stacked team around him. The same went for Carson Wentz.

Wentz's has accuracy concerns that went back to his rookie season. Even in 2017, he had bad numbers throwing down the field but the Eagles had remedied these problems mainly by surrounded him with elite talent. I'm still not sold on Carson Wentz.

That 2017 Eagles offense was loaded and the people who wrote them off after Wentz's injury that season were underselling them. They were still stacked last year, but were hampered with injuries.
