  1. I am really sorry to say this, but I am going to be shutting this site down. I have been absent for many years already, and left this site in such a sad state of affairs that I no longer have the desire to keep this site running, because it really needs attention that I don't have the time or quite frankly the willingness to devote to it. At least not in the way that it deserves. I've had some major changes in my life with moving back to the coast, losing both of my parents, and almost dying, that have happened to the point that I'm not the same person that I was when I first started this up. And not even really in the last five years as it stands. I still love football and the Saints but my desire to share almost anything online has all but evaporated. I will always been eternally grateful for the friends I have made here along the way. In the end the only thing that matters is how people treated you and made you feel - what your memories are - and I have met some of the best people on earth through this site. I have made memories that I will remember for the rest of my days. And that's priceless. I hope those of you who have stuck around can say the same. I cannot apologize enough for never making this site what it should have been. I had plenty of ideas but little execution, and for that I am sorry. Y'all really deserved better than what I have done, especially in the last almost 10 years now. I basically walked away because my personal issues and so many things have changed for me that I just don't have the passion that I once did for doing any of this. Web development is my job. I still enjoy doing it, but it is work, and after I get through with work I really don't want to do more work. I know how that sounds, but it is what it is. This site was never about me - it was always about you. You brought the viewpoints, the humor, the support, and the passion. I'll leave the site up for a couple of weeks but after that I am going to pull it down. I will probably put up something at the whodatzone.com domain but the forum as it is will be gone. My life is better for having had this site and the opportunity to meet so many great people and have so many great experiences. I hope you can say the same.
  2. Thanks for that info Bonckers, that makes me feel a bit better about it.
  3. I'm actually fired up to see what this guy can do for us. No knock on Ingram at all.
  4. Yeah. While I was happy with Okafor's play, I am not ready to say that the position is now downgraded. We did have to play without him and seemed to do ok in his absence.
  5. Big and unexpected loss. We do have Tom and Clapp on the roster as Bonckers said above. Will Clapp was solid at LSU, and Tom was pretty decent in the time I saw him play last season. I just hate the center spot changing though because I have loved seeing solid snap after solid snap, not to mention making the good line calls.
  6. Sounds like Davenport will be playing a lot next year, which I think will be a good thing.
  7. It isn't that I love the move, but looking at it objectively, I don't think we lost any production at all. We did lose watching Ingram slam head on into folks with that freakin straight up bulldozer attitude, which is what i will miss. Overcoming his early fumbling problems made him a guy I loved to watch run. After watching some highlights, I am actually excited about what Murray can bring though.
  8. Not sure how I feel about Cook at all. Not really excited about it, but maybe that means I just don't know a lot about him.
  9. Money wasn't that far off, so maybe it was the idea of having a bigger role in the offense like what that article suggests. Or maybe he wanted to get a big payday from the Saints, and asked for something ridiculous, and they thought they were too far apart to negotiate, and made their own move on that. Can't really say which way on that.
  10. This is the business part of the game, straight up. Ingram went for more money than the Saints could offer, understanding that he's one piece of that overall puzzle. The reason the Saints have been competitive over the years is because of careful cap management. I know he's a great locker room guy, and I will miss him for sure, but I feel like his actual on field production can be replaced because of what Kamara does on the flip side. Doesn't mean I like it, but it is what it is.
  11. Cleveland's finally gonna be a winner. Maybe not this year, but very soon.
  12. I watched some highlight films on Murray and the dude can be a straight ahead, straight up battering ram. We're not asking him to break home runs, so I think he'll get the job done. At 6' 3" if he falls forward, that's two yards right there. LOL Seriously though, he looks like he will be great on those straight up the gut runs.
  13. Big Nutz Lutz locked up for the next 5. Great signing. That dude is pure money.
  14. Surprised Ingram is going and Bridgewater is staying. I'm not totally sold on him as the long term successor, but I can say the same about Hill, as much as I like his swiss army knife game.
