  1. Saints sign PR Marcus Sherels

    Makes sense.
  2. Saints nearing deal with TE Jared Cook

    If we get this done, it's going to be a huge impact for our offense. We really missed having a reliable TE option that can get open. Watson did his best, Arnold had butterfingers and Hill is limited. Cook gives us that big target when teams are focusing on MT and AK. I think it also opens things up for Ginn too. Would be a massive addition if we can get it done.
  3. That's a mighty big contract there. Hopefully it turns out like Warford.
  4. Max Unger announces retirement

    Vikings G/C Nick Easton is the target. He's already visited us and apparently it's down to us, Vikings and mystery team (Phillies). I'll miss him though. He was a good C, and played well enough to make the Jimmy Graham trade a win for us, especially at a time when most of us thought we lost the trade. Consummate pro and a good leader in the lockerroom. He'll be missed

    I like both deals. Him and Kepler (5 yr $35M deal) signed deals in which both could outplay their deals down the line. I doubt either will be all stars, but I think both have a shot of being an above average major league contributor, especially if signed to reasonable deals.
  6. I think we'll see a bunch of restructures. Armstead, Peat and possibly Unger come to mind. Coleman, Klein and Meredith will be cut.
  7. Free Agents

    We need another legitimate receiving threat alongside Thomas. A TE like Kelce, Ertz or of similar ilk would really come in handy I think. We need a deep threat because Ginn doesn't seem like he's open consistently enough, depends on how much faith they place in Tre'Quan. I'd like an OT who can really either develop into a LT (ie draft one) or someone who can push for a starting spot. A LBer who can cover would be nice in terms of chess piece, Anzalone is good, but I think we need more help there in 3rd down situations.
  8. GDT - NFCCG Rams (13-3) @ Saints (13-3): Get loud.

    Can't really moan about being 3 points up at the half, but a few things are frustrating. Payton needs to not be super obvious when he's calling his run plays. Mixing it up will help. DA got a little blitz heavy on their TD. Don't get too drunk of pressure. Keep doing what's working. Overall we're playing well, really wished that INT was a TD instead of a FG, but I'll take it.
  9. GDT - NFCCG Rams (13-3) @ Saints (13-3): Get loud.

    I'm anxious but I'm confident. It's like a big final. You've studied all semester, passed all the lead up exams, but you're nervous for the final. I think it's understandable. I think if this was in LA I would be less confident, but considering its in the dome I'm fairly confident we can pull off a win. I think we will see some mental play calls from Payton however. Some that may lead us to pull our hair out, others become instant classics. I'm talking Kamara-T. Hill flea flicker to Ginn to open the second half type play call. Jeff Duncan put it best in my opinion, at the end of the day it comes down to who you think performs better in the dome under these circumstances. Brees or Goff? My money is on Brees. 34-17 Saints.
  10. GDT - NFCCG Rams (13-3) @ Saints (13-3): Get loud.

    We'll be without TE Benjamin Watson tomorrow. He has appendicitis.
  11. Win and you're in. That's the line Payton is going to tell his team prior to Sunday. Win and you're onto Atlanta. Win and you are 60 minutes away from being immortal. In the way is a young team on the rise. Led by HC Sean McVay, whom if you shook his hand once you're probably interviewing for a head coaching job in the league. He's shown to be a talented head coach and playcaller. His team has oodles of talent throughout the roster including up-and-coming young QB Goff and DPOY and future HOF DT Aaron Donald. Saints will be without DT Sheldon Rankins. The young DT tore his achilles and is out till next season. David Onyemata and Tyler Davison have to step up in place of Rankins, especially for the pass rush. Injury report: https://www.turfshowtimes.com/2019/1/17/18187605/nfl-playoffs-2019-los-angeles-rams-new-orleans-saints-thursday-injury-report Rams literally have no one on the injury report. Saints' O-line was a full practice and WR Kirkwood and TE Watson were both DNP. Coaches corner: On offense I think you'll see Thomas in the slot a lot. The Rams will put Talib against Thomas after Peters' disaster against him last time they met. Talib is still a great CB, however he isn't as effective in the slot. I think we'll see a lot of Ginn Jr., and Kamara lining up at WR too. Defensively this game gets a lot tougher. Gurley and Anderson are both capable RBs. With Rankins down, we'll need Onyemata and Davison to really step up make the interior less porous. Cooks and Woods are good WRs. I think Apple will be on Woods and Lattimore on Cooks. Imo though, it all starts with Gurley and that ground game. Slow that down, and I think you have a better chance against Goff and those WRs. I think the Dome is going to play a big role in this game. After the Rams' comments, and Payton asking for noise, I reckon this will be as loud as it has been in a while. 30-14 Saints. Who Dat!
  12. Great win. Payton once again shows why he's the guy to lead a team in the playoffs. Fake punt was done at the right time, and honestly changed the momentum. Team too, showed a ton of character to over come adversity. Down 14-0, D shut them out and offense put up 400ish yards. Massive turnaround from a nightmare start. Great win and a win I think Saints of the past wouldn't have won. Lattimore, what a corner.
