I just read Saints have activated Sheldon Rankins from the PUP list.  Hope he's able to play pretty early.

He’s definitely ahead of schedule, but I don’t want us to rush. If he’s not ready until week 6 I don’t wanna see him until week 6

And Tebow couldn't throw a spiral......still haven't figured out how exactly he managed to throw footballs into a flat spin....That's talent on a whole nother level.

Haha yeah

 

i mostly meant in the sense that he can move the offense but you don’t really want him to be your QB

Yea definitely don’t want to rush.  I don’t think they would though.  Whenever he plays I’ll bet he’s 100%.

Man, Rankins was one of my favourite players last year.  Can’t wait to see him play!

Cut Devine Ozigbo, Lil’Jordan AND Emmanuel Butler....

i was pretty hopeful for all 3 of those guys. This stings.

Wish we could have kept Ozigbo.

I'm just glad Ola got released.

I’m just trusting Payton. I thought the same thing about Boston Scott last year and he didn’t amount to anything.

I still have nightmares about 7 straight passes when up by 4 with 2:17 to play

im not referencing any game in particular, just every time he did it

The one area of the team I'm legitimately concerned about is O-line depth. Ola released, Tom on IR. I love Armstead but that guy is a near lock to miss 3-4 games this season. What's the plan then? Peat to LT, Easton to LG?

Also a little surprised Arnold was cut. Don't me wrong, I'm not fan of phallus fingers, but this we only have Cook and Hill for TE options.

 

Also if you've ever wondered what impact position coaches can have, look no further than our LBs. A decade of Vitt left our LB talent a barren wasteland for the most part. Nolan comes in and we've had Anzalone develop into a starter. Improved Davis's overall play. Now 7th rounder Kaden Ellis looks like a guy who can contribute down the road (if he fixes his issues that is).

Yes, o-line depth is a gonna be a problem again.  But apparently, it's a problem for the whole league.

Agreed. Peat to LT and Easton to LG is the plan, but that’s not enough of a backup plan.

And Taysom, who is basically an H-Back for us. So you’ve got Jared Cook as the starter, Josh Hill as the blocking specialist and Taysom who is your H-Back/Move TE
