He certainly started that way when they drafted him, but I can't even give him that much credit. At least Davenport flashed at times, Turner never seems to. Davenport especially hurt because it cost 2 first round picks, but overall Turner seems to be even worse of a pick.

Obviously Sean Payton had some outstanding drafts here, but his final 1st round pick as Saints HC was dreadful. He went way off the board with it too, which makes it even worse.

Just curious Matthew, but do you know for a fact that the Saints players ARE being hurt for turf toe at a higher rate? What’s your source?

I believe this article may refute that.

Return to Play Following High-Grade Turf Toe Injuries in National Football League AthletesBiomechanical Comparison of Arthroscopic SMC Knot Constructs

Turf toe is a common injury, particularly among high level football players.4 These injuries were first described in 1976 in collegiate football players at the University of West Virginia as a hyperextension injury to the plantar plate of the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint. They noted an incidence of 5.4 turf toe injuries per season.1 A survey of 80 athletes in the National Football League (NFL) found that 45% had sustained turf toe injuries previously.2 This injury was originally described in athletes competing only on artificial surfaces, but a later study demonstrated that turf toe occurred equally among athletes participating on modern artificial turf and natural grass.3

Also this study:

Outcome of Turf Toe Injuries in NFL Players

This was a retrospective review to identify all NFL players who sustained a turf toe injury during the seasons 2011-2014. Players with first MTP capsular ligamentous complex injury were identified through a review of online resources including NFL injury reports, player registries, game summary sites, NFL news and the Fantasy Doctors database.

Seventy-one turf toe injuries were identified. Twenty-nine occurred on grass, 29 on turf and the playing surface of 13 injuries could not be identified.

Re: Observations from the Saints win vs Titans

Turner was the only injury. For now. Fingers crossed that we don't lose a player each game.

Re: Observations from the Saints win vs Titans

DeMario Davis is one of my favorite Saints players--just behind Brees. His story should be all over the sports websites this morning.
Regardless, he's an awesome human being.


edit:
We all need encouragement. That was a great speech and helps me keep things in perspective. Especially now as I'm going through some challenging situations.
