  1. Be a man, make a homer prediction.

    Can't think of anything too crazy. I suppose Alvin Kamara will likely establish himself as the GOAT this year, and hopefully we can have a thread about him being the GOAT surpass last years "Is Kamara the best RB in the NFL" thread.
  2. NFC South Wide Receivers Under the age of 25

    There is certainly some upside with Tre'Quan, but I think that ceiling is nowhere near Ridley's. I'll be happy if Tre'Quan develops into a good number 2 WR for us. I think Ridley on the other hand has the potential to develop into a top 10 WR.
  3. NFC South Wide Receivers Under the age of 25

    I went with Tre'Quan Smith. Highest upside out of these 4 WR's /s In all seriousness, I think that Calvin Ridley will have the most production out of this group, and is also the most talented of the bunch.
  4. Rosen vs Murray

    I'll take Murray on this one. Never was that high on Rosen, and feel Murray has a very high ceiling.
  5. Greatest Runningback of all time?

    I don't agree with this. AP was undoubtedly great, but I don't think a guy like Barry Sanders needs any adjustment for era. If anything, Sanders may find even more success in today's NFL with offenses being so much different now than they were in the 90's. I can't help but think these spread out attacks favoring offenses wouldn't give Sanders even more room to create havoc running the ball. If Sanders was on a team like the Rams or Saints in today's NFL, I think records would be shattered. I'd also note that those big clunky shoulder pads RB's wore in the 90's aren't a thing in modern NFL. If a guy like Sanders was nearly impossible to tackle in the 90's with those big clunky shoulder pads, I can't imagine how he would do in today's NFL being an even harder target to tackle as he would be a much smaller target to grab onto. It may sound silly, but look at these ginormous pads compared to modern ones: \
  6. I mean I still like Cris Carter and Randy Moss despite them never winning anything important
  7. After attending the home opener last night, I must say the atmosphere was absolutely incredible!
  8. NFL DRAFT RUMOR THREAD

    At least from an athletic standpoint, Oliver and Donald are about as close as it gets similar build, explosion, and strength numbers. Both are absolute freaks at DT.
  9. Jinkies - Saints sign former Vikings G/C Nick Easton

    I suppose I probably should have elaborated a bit more on that. I'm not fond of the Odell trade from the Giants perspective. I think the Browns just got away with highway robbery. Often times it seems draft picks are valued too greatly based on what they could be rather than what they will likely be. Sure the picks could turn out for them, but the stats likely aren't in their favor to recoup the quality of an Elite WR just entering his prime. It is my understanding Peppers has been an under-performer thus far in his career, and maybe he turns it around with a change of scenery. That said, if my memory serves me correct many were down on his pro potential leading into the draft as he was a great athlete that made flashy plays in college, but wasn't really a great football player. The situations as far the players may be a bit different as Beckham has been known to be a headcase while Thomas hasn't. I don't know to what point he has been a distraction for the Giants, but Thomas seems to be the complete opposite in that regard. The distraction element the Beckham brings and what happens behind the scenes is the only way I could see that as a smart move by the Giants. Now I get that this isn't taking the trade the Browns offered, but rather one that is comparable. If it is one that is comparable, I am still not on board. If it is one that surpasses what the Browns offered (doubtful in my eyes a team would offer that much) I'd consider it. At this point, I think Thomas is just way too valuable to our offense, and would be huge for whoever we have at QB after Brees as a security blanket for them.
  10. Jinkies - Saints sign former Vikings G/C Nick Easton

    I can't get behind this logic. Thomas is a borderline top 5 WR, and has continued to improve each season with us. He likely is just entering his prime now at age 26. Say we pull in a 1st round pick for Thomas, what does that get us? We are talking about an elite young proven commodity vs. a roll of the dice in a draft pick. Sure we have done great the past few years in the draft, but the draft is far from a guarantee (Stephone Anthony wasn't that long ago lol), I get that he is going to ask for a big payday, but at the end of the day, so what? Elite players deserve to get paid. It seems that the organization has done a good job prepping us for life after Brees in regards to the quality of the roster. We likely won't be Super Bowl favorites by any means, but as it stands if Brees plays 1 more season, Teddy Bridgewater seems to be a capable replacement. That doesn't mean I think Bridgewater will be on the same level as Brees (few are), but I do think Bridgewater could be a top 10/top 15 starting QB in this offense. He will be coming into a situation where he has a very good OL, an Elite WR in Michael Thomas, an Elite RB in Kamara, and a quality TE in Cook. All this to go along with a very young defense that appears to be on the rise the past couple years. While the "high" number Thomas likely will get for his big payday may seem alarming at first, it is my understanding that the cap is to rise again, and we won't be paying that hefty Brees contract anymore. I'm also guessing it won't be much different than what other top WR's are commanding. Thomas hasn't been a head case, and to my knowledge has been good in the locker room. There just doesn't seem to be any reason to part from him and roll the dice on draft capital, which almost guarantee's we get a worse quality player in the draft as top 5 WR's aren't easy to come by.
  11. Obscure/Nostalgic Players

    Michael "The Beerman" Lewis has to be one of my favorite obscure players of all time.
  12. Read an interesting article today regarding how NFL coaches view Kamara among the top RB's in the NFL. This topic has been going on for some time now, but it is interesting to see a different perspective from NFL coaches in regards to Kamara. Some interesting quotes from the article: "So I asked a few coaches who faced the Saints whether they feared Thomas or Kamara more, and the answer, unequivocally, was Kamara. He is regarded, almost unanimously, as the most dangerous running back in football right now. Coaches rave about Kamara’s speed and “contact balance”—his ability to not just break tackles, but to do so without getting knocked off his track—and they especially laud his receiving. Great as Le’Veon Bell is in the passing game, most coaches say Kamara is the only tailback who can truly run the ENTIRE route tree from anywhere on the field." "Another said that even when Kamara is not catching the ball, he still aids New Orleans’s passing game because defenses must center their coverage around where he aligns. Look at Michael Thomas’s 72-yard touchdown in Week 9 against the Rams (remember the cell-phone celebration?)—cornerback Marcus Peters got burned on that play in part because of confusion regarding L.A.’s double-team plan for Kamara (who, in empty sets, almost always aligns on the weak side with Thomas)." ps. Sorry ET
  13. What happened to Ed Oliver?

    Here's an interesting chart I saw on twitter highlighting the athletic numbers shown between Ed Oliver and Aaron Donald. Seems like they are in a league of their own in terms of athleticism at DT
  14. What happened to Ed Oliver?

    Not sure what exactly it would take, but I would imagine our early picks this year, next year would all be gone at the very least lol
  15. What happened to Ed Oliver?

    Please let this happen somehow (chances are close to 0 percent, but I can dream lol). Wouldn't even be mad if we traded a bunch of future early picks for this.
