So you move Mr. Marcus to SS? How much are we gonna have to spend on Berry? Not sure that's viable...

Don't be surprised if Coleman is right back here at a cheaper number...

Saints Front Office are trusting the PFF-type analytics and believe Vonn Bell's is trending up, despite very shaky, inconsistent pass coverage...

Wonderful, another old, broke-down Tight End who can't run, play more than fifteen percent of the snaps a game, and will fade by the fourth quarter of the regular season...

It's like trying to pull a stubborn tooth when I was a kid, sign it already so the Tweets will stop...

Iíd move Mr. Marcus to the bench for Eric Berry. I saw an improvement from Bell...I really did...but I feel like we could definitely upgrade both spots.

He had a career year last year. He looked really good in the games I saw him in. I think it would be a solid pick up for us. I donít really know what other options we have.

So in the case of PFF Graders, you'd say they got it wrong in 2018 when Mr. Marcus gets 70.28 grade on the year and Berry got a 62.4?

Don't mis-read me, I'm not saying PFF is an absolute (I often take them to task via Twitter to justify their grade); I've always liked Berry and his game (when healthy), but at age 29???

And while Mr. Marcus showed some regression vs his outstanding rookie season where he was ranked as a Top 3 safety - I'd stay with the younger Mr. Marcus and look at coaching, scheme of Dennis Allen...

Personally I'd love'd to have locked up the secondary with a big physical Strong Safety who could mirror TEs or WR-X in the red zone, or something fierce like a Honey Badger...

With today's cap and the Saints always playing right up against it, there's just no room to go and make any big splashes - we'll have to temper our expectations...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Yeah, but Rez, Who did Carr have to throw to last season? Crabtree was sent packing and Coop sulked till he got traded to Dallas?

WhiteBread Kittle in San Fran caught more TD passes and did more damage, and with Garoppolo out, and Cook could only get 6 ReTDs in Oakland?

Gettin' old sucks, but when you hit that 3-0, it's a b*tch! Even Brees sittin' in the pocket having watched film five days a week with your arse in the seat for 5am is gettin limited...
