  1. Perfectly stated. I had been looking for the words to explain why I'm done with the NFL. Those are it. I won't watch another game. Saints or otherwise. I'd been hanging by a thread for the last few years. I almost had enough after the NFC Championship Game. But I gave it another shot. But now I've had enough. I'm done. Over the last 2 weeks, I've visited Saints sites just a few times. I used to visit several times every day. I just don't care anymore. What happened to Brees was despicable. That was the start. Then his own teamates, the media, and most of the NFL players vilified him. Malcolm Jenkins told him to shut the f*ck up. Brees was forced to apologize and PROVE that he wasn't the racist, anti-black, tone deaf person he was made out to be. For having a differing opinion, or not stating what some thought he should have, Brees was raked over the coals. The NFL then embraces BLM, apologizes, and opens the floodgates for league wide protests before every game. No thanks. I don't agree with the kneeling. And I don't have to watch. Millions of others won't either. But, this is what the NFL has become - immersed in politics going forward. Should there be efforts to fight racism and police brutality? Absolutely. I despise racism in any form. Police brutality is despicable. But there are other forums and platforms available to discuss these important issues, that would be more effective and reach a bigger audience. No more escaping into football to ward off the stress and concerns of the day. That's over. I'm sad about it. I feels like a punch to the gut. But, I'll get over it. I have other interests to take up my time. I don't know if I'll stop by here very often. I've enjoyed connecting with those here and on chat during games. If I offend anyone with this post, I don't mean to. Just expressing my thoughts.
  2. I gave it an A. Great value picks on Day 2. I wasn’t crazy about the Ruiz pick, but I understand the move. Had I been part of the Saints staff, I would have been banging the table to move up 4 spots and draft Justin Jefferson. Heh, that’s why I’m surround sound installer and not an NFL scout.
  3. McGee can play tackle as well, though listed as a guard. He’s an interesting prospect. Hope he’s another undrafted gem. We could use depth there.
  4. Ugh. I despise Winston as a person. He’s an immature punk with a history of off the field issues. But, I guess I’ll have to deal with it. It’s kind of like going into the voting booth and holding your nose while pulling the lever. You gotta do it, queasy feeling and all. Now, as a strictly football move, I get it. He is the best FA QB available, and he’s signing on the cheap. Maybe (and it’s all up to him) he can gain some maturity through this staff’s guidance. I remember during our Super Bowl season, we signed a D lineman that had past issues with drug abuse (can’t remember his name). He ended up keeping his head on straight and playing well that year. Maybe it happens for Jameis. I don’t have a clue.
  5. Anybody here interested in jumping into chat for the NFL Draft on Thursday? We always have fun with chat during the season. I'll be there, and hope to see you there. I know this is a crazy time, but some distraction with friends could be just what we need. WHODAT
  6. I think the Dolphins take Tua with their first pick. Then with their next 2 picks, select Oline and a weapon (RB or WR). The Saints pick will be interesting. I really want Jefferson, but he will likely be gone. My next choice would be Queen. I like him better than Murray. Queen, IMO, has better instincts, and better coverage skills. He can make big plays in big games - that can't be taught, and you jump to make that kind of pick. The wild card for the Saints at 24 is if Jordan Love is still on the board. Do you take him? My vote is no. I would stick with am impact player for this year. Curious to hear what you guys think: Who is YOUR preference for the Saints realistically (top 4 WRs are gone, Murray and Queen are there, and some top corners are still available)? And who do you think the Saints staff will actually pick?
  7. The better team won today. Vikings played a great game. They owned both lines. Cook was a madman running the ball. Payton got outcoached as well. Terrible game plan and play calling. Drew had an off day for sure. Murray got 6 touches, that's ridiculous. Disappointing for sure. But we weren't robbed this time. It's all on us. Team didn't get it done, and the Vikes did. That's it.
  8. The Vikes sat on all the deep routes KNOWING that Brees can't push the ball down the field. Same thing happened to Manning at the end of his career. I think that Brees is still great, but he fell back down to earth for this game. That pick was a head scratcher, for sure. Why throw into double coverage? That was a 10 to 14 point swing. Not a great game for Brees, and maybe I'm just frustrated and emotionally spent, but I'm seeing a blueprint for beating Brees. Sit on the deep routes, and pressure Drew. What is our future? Is Brees a part of it? I don't know.
  9. Merry Christmas to all the Whodatzone family!
  10. True. The Titans did the same thing to Eddie George. At least Kamara splits time as a WR.
  11. Join us in chat for the Saints / Falcons game. No password required. WHODAT!!
  12. The 3 headed monster on offense: Brees, CGM, and AK. Davis and Cam on defense. Lutz and Tommy Two Picks on ST. And props to Easton. I didn’t hear his name once, which is usually a good thing. He stepped in seamlessly, imo.
  13. Brees, Murray, and CGM on offense. Jordan, Latt, and DD on defense. Moorestead on ST. Special shout out to Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. Impact player and another asset to this defense. He’s been playing well and is looking like an absolute steal as a fourth rounder in the draft. Very physical and cocky - kind of like a Jeremy Shockey on defense.
  14. I saw the original video from Brees. It simply encouraged Christian students to bring Bibles to school. That’s it. It had zero to do with any LGBTQ issues. Brees has nothing to apologize for, and I understand his confusion about how his actions are being misrepresented. He has a right to voice his opinion and express his faith.
  15. I’m changing my pick from 13 - 3 to 12 - 4. I believe that this offense won’t run the ball as much this season, and airing it out might cost us a couple of games. Defense will be better, Davenport finally catches fire, and Butler gets called up by week 6.
