  1. Not bad, but definitely need some work at that SS spot and unless they draft someone it will come down to Bell & Coleman. Pretty certain PRob will be staying in the nickel position like he played in Philly and I expect both Crawley and Marcus Williams to improve on last season.
  2. Not saying hey are the best, but can somebody tell me where the Saints starters rank on PFF?
  3. Alvin Kamara

    I approve of this thread.
  4. Cameron Meredith signs offer sheet with the Saints

    The beauty in this deal is it doesn't cost the Saints a whole lot to find out if he can be the player everyone saw before the injury. And if he is then he's a steal at that price and a great compliment to the Saints offense. I don't know about Meredith honestly, but I really like this deal for the Saints.

    Officially a Saint
  6. Custom Dynasty rankings

    You realize you're asking on a fantasy web site that makes it's money off of features like customizable rankings for directions to a competing site?
  7. General Rookie Chatter

    Watson is ancient and Fleener has never lived up to his potential. Saints tried to re-sign Graham before he opted for Green Bay. I'm pretty certain they'd still like to find an upgrade to Fleener.
  8. General Rookie Chatter

    Fairly certain the Saints will take one of these guys.
  9. Suh hasn't left LA yet...

    Same thing you're hearing. It's just a big joke to fans now. The Saints made an offer and he thinks he's going to get a bigger one from them by trying to play them against the Rams/Titans/Jets. The Jets already told him to pound sand. I'm sure the Saints offer still stands, but I seriously doubt it's in the ballpark with the Rams & Titans. Titans are likely offering more than the Rams, but he's got better opportunity to actually have a meaningful end to his career with the Rams. If they're somewhat close, which I believe they are, then he's going to the Rams. What gets me is he's probably hoping one of these teams budges. It wouldn't surprise me if they all tell him to f-off and he ends up getting a horrible deal.
  10. Suh hasn't left LA yet...

    Past the point of caring anymore and hope the Saints have as well. I get trying to maximize your contract because "it's a business", but this is ridiculous. The Chargers Rams can have him.
  11. Vikes vs the Saints

    We've had our fair share of Corey Coleman's
  12. Vikes vs the Saints

    We're surprisingly good honestly. We've got 4 of the top rookies in the league with Kamara, Lattimore, Ramczyk and Williams, likely best candidates for OROY & DROY, 20 players coming back from injured reserve, including 9 starters and we've still got one of the best QBs of all time, one of the best coaches in the league & an all-pro WR & RB. The future looks pretty bright for us and I believe we are only going to get better. I can honestly say that this is the best I've felt about our team since 2011 put a dagger in our hearts.
  13. Vikes vs the Saints

    Saints fans have got his back and he knows it. There's a 5 page thread on the Saints board with nothing but support for him. Somebody put up a billboard in NOLA saying "Dat's OK Marcus, we love our Saints!" (actually, searching for the image I see that there are several) The guy is just a rookie and played a very big part in what they accomplished this year, which is much more than what we expected.
  14. Keelan Cole JAC WR

    I picked him up for my taxi squad after his preseason performance & promoted him after Hurns got hurt. Unfortunately, the only time I ever had the confidence to start him was week 11. He seems to have plenty of talent to succeed, but he's got a number of factors playing against him with being on what would like to be a run-first team along with 3 WRs who have already established themselves and/or has a lot of investment tied into them with Robinson, Hurns & Lee. As much as I'd love for Cole to be a breakout candidate for next season it would take Robinson leaving via FA, which I don't think happens now due to the injury, and Cole clearly outplaying either Hurns or Lee in camp/preseason. At best I think he ends up the 3rd receiver in a cluttered corp that would much rather put the ball in the hands of Fournette.
  15. NOS RBs vs NYJ DEF ?

    New Orleans has a habit of making scrub QBs look like stars. Hopefully this new secondary doesn't continue that trend.
  16. NOS RBs vs NYJ DEF ?

    How are the Jets at stopping the screen and short passing attack? If they can't stop that then they are toast and the OL is going to wear them out.
  17. NOS RBs vs NYJ DEF ?

    There's a lot of talk around the Saints forum that question whether Kamara was ever concussed at all. Apparently one of the players told someone that team doctors had cleared him to come back out after the half and the NFL officials said no and that Kamara was pissed about it. I have no idea if any of that is true, but I do know that he & starting OG Kalemente, who was also diagnosed with a concussion during the Falcons game were both back at practice pretty quickly after sustaining their concussions.
  18. NO v ATL Game thread

    I always have a hard time believing conspiracy theories, especially with referees. I think that more times than not it's just bad officiating that fuels that thought or just people looking for a reason their team lost other than poor play. I know that often refs will favor a player and give them calls where other players wouldn't get the same call, but to say there's some coordinated conspiracy is just really too far-fetched to me. I will say though, the disparity in calls (none on the Falcons D, 9 against the Saints for first downs), several obvious non-calls & a couple questionable ones along with things like the Falcon ref being subbed in, the league sure doesn't do themselves any favors in quieting this kind of talk.
  19. NO v ATL Game thread

    While we're talking conspiracy theories... NFL assigned ex Falcon player to sub in as referee and didn't disclose his name to the teams until after the game.
  20. is it Tion time?

    This thread cracks me up every time I see it, but for a totally unrelated reason. Years back I was a structural design group lead and all the leads were together going over project distribution to all of our workers. We were all writing the names on the white board along with the project number and I look over at one of the other leads list and saw the name Tion. I asked him "who the hell is "Tee-on?" He answers "That's Shawn." It takes a second or two for it to register then laughter erupted while he just sat there looking confused. Needless to say, the guy wasn't the brightest. Anyway, I picked up Tion and stashed him on my taxi squad. Any chance this guy actually gets some playing time?
  21. NO v ATL Game thread

    The play on Michael Thomas should have been at the very least an illegal hands to the face, but could have been just as easily called a personal foul since it turned his head when the defender grabbed the side of the opening in his face mask. What really amazes me is the fact that not a single penalty was called on Atlanta's defense.
  22. NO v ATL Game thread

    The thing is most coaches tell the refs ahead of time that they are going to call a time out immediately after the play. I've seen Payton do it many times before when miced up. There is no excuse for the ref to not be paying attention and to miss the timeout regardless of the possible turnover. That should be inexcusable in that situation.
  23. NO v ATL Game thread

    I know that as a fan I have my bias and my opinion would agree with you. Still, ultimately, the game came down to injuries, some bad play-calling & a poor decision by Drew.
  24. NO v ATL Game thread

    I think you meant Freeman, not Ingram, but yeah, I won't say that I disagree. I will say though that the Saints got penalized much more heavily for drive-killing or extending (for Falcons) plays. I will also say that the Saints had a ridiculous amount of injuries to key players during that game. Those factors definitely weighed heavily on the outcome of that game. Whether the officiating was just bad or the injuries a cause of the short week makes no real difference. The Saints had their opportunities and just didn't get it done one way or another.
  25. NO v ATL Game thread

    Agree completely. I also think New Orleans takes that game if not for his injury.
