Man..it's not as bad now, but earlier the Saints boards were in complete chaos.

So many people overreacting, half the people were ready to attack each other. A lot of ridiculous things being said, some people are already calling for Payton to be fired.

Sometimes I want to smash my head into a wall after reading some of the stuff over there, I should really stop.

I'm guessing the chaos is due to us not grossly overpaying for a FA yet. Hilarity.

also, a poster on 'saintsreport.com'....

stated, that he and his g/f heard on 105.1 KPEL...that the saints were pursuing Brandon Stokely (WR, Colts)......and that the saints were close to signing him and that the news should come out soon.


now this is NOT OFFICIAL but something of interest, i guess.

Nah most of it was from the Joe Horn release there were tons of threads on there.

People were saying Payton didn't play Horn because of a personal vendetta, and saying somehow our Offense will go to junk without him?

Seriously I wonder if people even pay attention to the games, Horn missed a good portion of the season, and we didn't miss a beat without him... if he would've been healthy he would've played in the playoffs, he wasn't...he even failed his exit physical.

Interesting news I've just read on Rotoworld.
Quote:
The Saints aren't expected to release CB Fred Thomas this offseason.
According to the Sporting News, New Orleans feels Thomas just needs to better his technique and regain his confidence after being victimized frequently by speed receivers in 2006. He still should face competition.
Source: sportingnews.com
Seems like maybe the Saints won't cut Fred Thomas this off-season, and try to let him resharpen his technique. I'm hoping if they do it's not as the starter...and that he'll move to Nickelback.

Are you ******* serious?

The guy has been in the league for 11 years and is pushing 34 years old. Needless to say his 'technique' is not the problem. He's washed up, plain and simple. He was obviously far and away the weakest link on a weak defense, so why on earth would they bring his sorry ass back? He's only going to make $2 million next year, but that's kind of pricey for a #4 cornerback (which is what he is/should be).

This is the kind of stuff that pisses me off about the Saints organization.

I was a little , when I first heard it too, but after some reading I can see why they wouldn't release him right away.

My guess is, they don't want to release him him right now before they even have anyone to replace him yet. So they'll wait until after Free Agency, and the Draft and then re-evaluate the CB situation.

My best guess is he'll be a part of either June 1st cuts/ or a Nickel/Dime back next season.

I am kind of suprised that we haven't signed anyone in FA yet. I am hoping that these next few days will show us landing a good FA that will come in and really help out the team. People like Anthony Adams, Ken Hamlin, Rod Hood, and possibly Brian Simmons would be a big upgrade over the people currently on our roster.

You've been throwing Rod Hood's name around for a while now, but I've yet to see anything showing the Saints have any sort of interest in him. Have you?

These are the guys I've heard about:
Brian Simmons
Ken Hamlin
Deon Grant
Kevin Kaesviharn
Anthony Adams
Chris Draft
William James

Is there anybody else?

Saw something earlier on him, lemme try and find it..

Eagles free-agent cornerback Rod Hood visited the Browns on Saturday and the Cardinals on Sunday. He is scheduled to visit the Saints on Wednesday.

The Dolphins are about to release Randy McMichael. Hopefully the Saints will go after him.

Supposedly the Saints offered a 4th Rounder to the Dolphins for him but the Fins rejected the offer. If he hits the market, I expect the Saints the make a big play for him.

Well, I don't know now what to believe...

According to WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge, Jacques Doucet, their sports anchor reported that the Saints and MLB Brian Simmons on both their 6 and 10 o'clock news. He claims that it's a "source close to the team".

Also, in a related note, Doucet mentioned that Eagles wide receiver Donte Stallworth checked himself into a league sponsored substance abuse program. I wonder if this means the Eagles won't re-sign him? So our pick will then be a fourth rounder then?

Our pick from Philly wasn't going to be a third rounder anyway. They had to extend his contract before free agency started in order for that to have happened.

According to Rotoworld, Fred Thomas has agreed to take an $800k pay cut to remain on the team. Link

Quote:
Fred Thomas took a $800,000 paycut on a restructured contract to remain in New Orleans this season.
New Orleans could really use better competition at cornerback, though, and should continue to pursue talent in free agency and the draft. Thomas will make $2.2 million in 2007.

Source: New Orleans Times-Picayune
I think this assures he'll be the Nickel back, Dime back next season.

Well, at least they got Fred Thomas to take an 800,000 pay cut, but he is still set to make 2.2 million against that cap. I am not sure how much of that is bonus and how much of that is base, but if most of it is bonus I guess it's better to have some experience on the roster for a small base then no experience. Here is to hoping he fixes whatever problems he was having last year.

I agree about the reasoning that it's good to have quality depth, but I'm still not really high on Fred Thomas. The fact still remains, I don't think that Thomas is "quality" depth... and I think that the Saints could still use an definite upgrade at cornerback.

But, as it is, Thomas needs to improve dramatically from last season.

Well, the day we all were dreading is here... Joe Horn is now a member of the Atlanta Falcons. :(

As per ESPN.com:

Sources: Ex-Saints WR Horn agrees to sign with Falcons

I figured it would happen sooner or later. Horn will be serviceable for maybe another year or two but I don't think he's going to have the explosiveness that he once possessed to be that huge of a threat over in Atlanta. I believe he was only brought in to mentor to the young receivers already in Atlanta.
