Correct! Kenny V stated he was just tired and forgot all about the rule thing and then got popped the following Monday morning...

However, long-term studies of Adderall use for ADHD suggest heart disease, and we've been down that road as well; sucks, but prior-medicals are always problematic...

AT&T doesn't carry the NFL network anymore(I guess Godhell pissed them off too). Would anyone care to share the highlights?

Re: Senior Bowl

I like Anthony Gordon. I think he has the right tools to be a pretty good pro quarterback and a fraction of the cost in regards to some of the other guys.

Was it me or did Peat move faster in the Pro Bowl than regular season... a time when everyone else was playing 3/4 speed..

Re: Senior Bowl

The conservative approach signing and drafting high-profile receivers are not the norm in New Orleans.

Really? Robert Meachem, Kenny Stills, Brandin Cooks, Michael Thomas

This seems to be the one area where Payton believes that he can develop late round talent. I don't know why.(Edit: Colston) Except that maybe Drew can make them look good. Drew's arm strength is deteriorating and that's why we brought in MT when he started his decline. We need another stud.

In the beginning Payton surrounded Drew with top draft picks at the WR position because Drew wasn't a legend yet. We went away from that in the prime years and it's time to go back to possession receivers....we don't need a speedster because we can't throw it deep consistently anymore.

I didn't watch but it would make sense. He is trying to get a big contract and even though the Pro Bowl is a joke (why was Peat there in the first place?) being there and looking good playing in it may entice another team's GM enough to throw a bunch of money at Peat to get him to their team.

Re: Senior Bowl

Andrus Peat was defeated a lot last season. He's either on his back, placed on IR or putting his QB in bad spots. Easton was solid as back up, helping Brees have a really good December. The minute Peat returns, he's back to looking awful again.

I try to be as objective as I can on Saints players, however when it comes to Andrus Peat, he's one guy I hope is not on our team in 2020.
