I can see it now 08 when they release Deuce for a 4th rd pick.
Unreal. What did you guys think we were going to get a first or second rounder for him just because he was a first rounder? I think that if we get the third for him then I'm happy. You heard Joe Horn say it himself....the guy had no professionalism. Was he just going to all of a sudden change next year? Do we really want him to be a negative influence to Reggie?

Odds are he wasn't going to resign with us and he was going to walk for nada. I'd think you guys would've learned from Darren Howard.
Wait, you took ONE GUY'S quote and attributed it to "you guys?" Slow your roll................
I'm applying it to everyone who thinks that he wasn't going to walk next year and we got hosed with this trade. That's who "you guys" is refering to. No reason to get all butthurt over it.

It's just a business decision....why are so many people getting all emotional about this. Brooks, Sullivan, now Stallworth. All of them had attitude problems that weren't worth their talent.
Hmm, i've read this entire thread, and this seems to me like the only person who felt this way was the guy you replied to. IS there maybe one other or something? As much as I wanted Stallworth to stay, even I liked the trade. "You guys" should prob apply to more than one or two people though, especially when the overall sentiment of 99% of the thread was acceptance. I know you were eager to rant, but keep it relevant.

My so-so

That Colston and DH are our #2 recivers, they'll share time at that position like in Camp
None of these youngsters can live up to be a #2 yet, I see us being like the old Colts or Pats, these two guys will mainly share time at this spot...This how they've been in Camp as well, to my surprise, even though I'm rooting for em, DH has looked better than alot of our recent #2 guys...Then Colston has been the most surprise to everyone, so thats how I see it....

Hass, this guy can play...From my recent readings, Hass and Jones have been in an all out brawl for the #3 spot, like DH and Colston has its just that they have two different styles in the game... Same as the Jones and Hass battle, which I think Hass will win, even though hes not earning playing time, if they were smart enough to do all these good roster moves, they'll be smart enough to utilize Hass

Horn
DH
/Colston
Hass or Jones
Jones or Hass
C.Horn or Moore or Lymaan-another last spot fight

Wrong you are my little padawan. According to sources inside the Saints organization, Colston is the guy at the #2 spot. Devery isn't even on Payton's radar for the spot anymore.

Then Colston has been the most surprise to everyone
Uh, uh, uh.......Daddy called that one since January. Check it:

4th Round: Marcus Colston 6'5 225 lbs. WR from Hofstra. I had been hearing alot about this guy from scouts all over, but never really got to watch him play. It seems that Hofstra isn't a real media darling of a school. Imagine that.

Anyway, I watched this kid play in the East-West Shrine game yesterday & all I can say is DAMNNNNNN...

This kid can flat out play. He's got the size, decent speed, but most of all he catches everything. Guy was a basketball player (ala-Antonio Gates) turned WR. He's athletic with great hands. The latter of which we desperately need in a WR.
Or when I was hoping for him on draft day in the 7th:

I hope we get Marques Colston-WR Hofstra. I can't believe he's lasted this long.

I suspect that his steel-trap memory is only that good on the stuff he's gotten RIGHT Deuce.

Am I the only one who thinks the Mgmt MAY have pulled the trigger too quick on this one?

Things to consider:
1- New quarterback = timing/velocity issues. Face it, Brees has been less than stellar thus far. If you give him a little time to adjust, shouldn't his receivers be given the same leeway?

2- Old quarterback = crap for stats. If you had a QB that could actually THROW the ball to a man, this wouldn't be an issue. We had AB. 'nuff said there.

3- New LB = poor pass defender/ no speed for pass rush/ undersized for stopping runs without a stud SS to assist.

and last but not least,
4- The Curse = Donte will go to Philly and become a receiving god to rival his Dad's legacy, and we'll be watching Horn free agent his way out of NOLA.

Lived 15 mins from Philly all my live and believe me, having watched Simoneaux play, he is definitely NOT the answer to our defense woes!
Talk to me people...
