  1. He could be an every down back, but he could not carry the full load a whole season which is why he was never an every down back in my eyes. That is why I called him a role player. Shoot even in 9 Mike Bell was the pounder to keep him fresh. It wasn't a knock on Pierre just that he couldn't be a Duece in his prime.
  2. He had some really good pieces. He definitley had a way of making you feel like you were there, and explaining culture and food like you were the one eating it.
  3. Phil I agree 100%, even though Tracy made the pick I wasn't sold we would get the ball first or if we didn't that we could not stop their offense. Not to mention when he lined up I wasn't sure he was gonna make. When the kick went through the uprights was one of the best moments of my life, hands down top 5 moments in my life.
  4. I loved having him and was sad to see him go. I do not think he could have been an every down back, but he was a great I mean great role player for us. I am happy he is getting the recognition he deserves.
  5. sweet sweet misery. Brett Favre giveth and taketh away. Green Bay fans saw it happen many times too
  6. I think outside of losing Kelmente they did as good a job as they could. Kelemente left to start, it was even reported we were going to match the Texans. We signed Bushrod who can play either guard or tackle postion and brought back Lerebus who can play guard or center. Not to mention the younger depth, draft picks, and free agents on the roster. Yes we lost Kelemente, but we added good dpeth across the board. There may be a small drop off, but I feel they added more depth at the 3rd and 4th stringers on O line.
  7. So at first I was afraid oh crap what about a shark or something, but this is really cool. He learned at a surfing camp at a farm. https://www.nola.com/saints/index.ssf/2018/06/drew_brees_surfing.html
  8. I think more than anythign Payton and Lombardi are intrigued. The league definitely has a lot more athletic QB's than years past with success, I think that is why Barrett and Hill are on the roster. I would not be surpruised to see both make the roster, and Savage be cut. JMO. I am not ready to crown either as well, but they would bring a new element to our offense we havne't had and if we are building a run first team with a strong defense they would help with that. My concern though is Hill's injury history.
  9. I just read that too, but I say screw him. He doesn't want to be on our list I don't want him. To me that tells me other teams will avoid him as he doesn't feel like anything but a full time starter number 1 back, nit a role player. Which at this stage of his career he is not. Not with the wear on those tires.
  10. I have always felt that way St. Lee, don't get me wrong I lvoed winning the Super Bowl, but the NFCCG was down right draingin how hard fouhgt and close it was. I know we had to take the lead with an onside kick in the usper bowl, but I styed up almost all night with the NFCCG.
  11. Also Tim Hightower is there today for a tryout, and Jamaal Charles will be there tomorrow for a tryout as well. I like the idea of updating the lists of veterans. I wouldn't mind Hightower coning back if he has neough for 4 games left in the tank. Mike TriplettESPN Staff Writer As expected, Saints RB Mark Ingram is back participating at the mandatory veteran minicamp Tuesday after skipping OTAs and the offseason conditioning program. Veteran RB Tim Hightower is also here for a tryout, and ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that veteran RB Jamaal Charles will be in New Orleans for a visit on Wednesday. The Saints could just be updating their "ready list" in case they want some veteran insurance while Ingram serves a four-game suspension to start the year.
  12. I get players aren't require to go, and only have so many ways of showing displeasure for contracts. But with the suspension and what not I feel Ingram hurt himself skipping OTA's. Again though I understand it wasn't manadatory, and he has no other way to protsest for a new ocntract. I don't see the Saints extending him due to the suspension though until next off season. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/06/12/after-skipping-voluntary-work-mark-ingram-shows-up-to-mandatory-minicamp/ After skipping voluntary work, Mark Ingram shows up to mandatory minicamp Posted by Michael David Smith on June 12, 2018, 12:10 PM EDT Getty Images Saints running back Mark Ingram is on the field at Saints practice. Ingram, who has skipped all of the Saints’ voluntary workouts this offseason, showed up today for the first day of mandatory minicamp in New Orleans. That was the expectation, as Saints coach Sean Payton previously said Ingram would be there. The 28-year-old Ingram thinks he deserves a new contract after he had the best season of his career in 2017, with 230 carries for 1,124 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns, plus 58 catches for 416 receiving yards. Unfortunately for Ingram, the emergence of Alvin Kamara, last year’s Offensive Rookie of the Year, makes it easy for the Saints to say they don’t need to invest any more money in the running back position. Ingram is heading into the final year of his current contract. He has a base salary of $4 million and a roster bonus of $500,000. By skipping voluntary workouts he cost himself a $100,000 workout bonus, but by showing up for mandatory work he saves himself from getting fined $84,435.
  13. WE still ahve two guys left wh owill be top 20 Kamara, and Brees. I know Kamara is there, because when Kareem Hunt made the list they showed video of Kamara and said he had to wait a while to see his name come up. BTW Hunt was in the 30's. We all know Brees will be there too. Would be awesome if both make top 10. This list is made by player voting. https://www.nola.com/saints/index.ssf/2018/06/cameron_jordan_nfl_network_top.html Saints' Cameron Jordan joins NFL Network list of top 100 players for 2018 Updated 10:51 AM; Posted 10:48 AM New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan (94) celebrates after the wild card playoff game between the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints at the Superdome on Sunday, January 7, 2018. (Photo by Michael DeMocker, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune) 2 37shares By Christopher Dabe cdabe@nola.com, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune Cameron Jordan became the fourth New Orleans Saints player listed on the NFL Network's list of top 100 players for 2018. The network listed the All-Pro defensive end at No. 26 during the weekly unveiling Monday (June 11). He joined running back Mark Ingram (No. 43), wideout Michael Thomas (No. 81) and cornerback Marshon Lattimore (No. 82) on the list with quarterback Drew Brees sure to be listed in among the top 20. The final 20 players will be listed in the weekly shows over the next two weeks. The seven-year NFL veteran Jordan finished the 2017 season with career highs in sacks (13) and passes defensed (11). He also had 62 tackles, 17 for loss, two forced fumbles, an interception and scored the first touchdown of his career. Jordan was not listed among the top 100 players in 2017. Also joining the list Monday was Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson at No. 23, down four spots from 2017. Peterson played in college at LSU. The list is determined by a vote of NFL players. View image on Twitter
  14. Dru you make a very good point. I will say that Thomas right now is better than Colston was going into his 3rd year. Colston almost didn't make it out of Rookie camp, but put together the best career a Saints receiver has ever had. I loved loved Eric Martin growing up. Colston was far better, and Thomas if he stays a Saint and stays healthy will be better. I love his work ethic, and that he is a lot like Colston in he doesn't get mouthy. Colston at the time had unique size in only TO, and Megatron had similar builds. He had great hands and unbelievable body control. I still remmeber his rookie year being in awe with the falling backwards TD catches on goal to go plays. Similar to fade a away shot in basketball. Dude was great, and I was sad to see him go, but his body had enough. I am not saying MT is the best Saints WR ever right now, but Dru I agree that he could be better than any to have ever worn the black and gold when he is done. The only caveat being we may not be able to pay him in a couple of years. Time will tell.
  15. Sorry had to give you a small heart attack or stroke with headline. Just thumb surgery won't miss training camp. https://www.nola.com/saints/index.ssf/2018/06/marcus_davenport_thumb_surgery.html#incart_river_index Saints' Marcus Davenport to undergo thumb surgery: report Updated 8:00 AM; Posted 7:48 AM Marcus Davenport (92) participates in the Saints rookie minicamp at the New Orleans Saints facility in Metairie on Saturday, May 12, 2018. (Photo by Brett Duke, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune) 29shares By Josh Katzenstein jkatzenstein@nola.com, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune New Orleans Saints first-round pick Marcus Davenport will undergo minor thumb surgery after minicamp this week, according to an NFL Network report. It's unclear when Davenport suffered his thumb injury, but the report said the rookie defensive end should be fine by training camp, which starts in late July. Twitter Ads info and privacy The Saints selected Davenport 14th overall this year after a trade with the Green Bay Packers, sending the 27th overall pick this year as well as next year's first-round pick to move up in the first round. Davenport adds to the list of Saints defensive ends dealing with injuries. Cameron Jordan is still recovering from offseason foot surgery, Alex Okafor is on his way back from an Achilles tendon tear last season and Trey Hendrickson sat out the past two weeks of OTAs with an undisclosed injury. The Saints will hold their mandatory minicamp from Tuesday through Thursday this week.
