That was a sweet victory. Man, I'm so happy. The one thing, though, that I'd like to see us do is mix up the playcalling a little. Try running it a bit more. But I'm very hapy with a win. 7-4 and in the division lead.

Me too. At times, I was screaming at the TV for us to run the ball. The second to the last drive shows why. 12 runs, 12 passes.. ate up 7+ minutes.

Congratulations, I wish we had receivers and a goal-line back to give you guys a challenge, though. Oh well, thanks to you guys the three stooges (Mora, Knapp, Donatell) are going to be fired. 8) Someone find me a good Reggie Bush sig, to make good on our accord.

I completely disagree. The passing game is what is making our offense go (when we're not turning the ball over), so why fix what isn't broken? Besides, our O-Line is really not that great at run blocking. They do protect Brees well, though. I think our team's identity is about 60% pass, 40% run.

Because if we're constantly passing the ball, the defense can start to hone in on that much like the Falcons did in the second half by bringing extra pressure and keeping Brees flustered. Running the ball helps us balance not to mention we should be running more often with one of the best backs in the league and Bush in the backfield.

We would be running more if our Offensive Line was good at run blocking. Deuce gets his yards because he's good at getting yards after contact, but he also has a whole lot of 1-3 yard runs. Reggie isn't producing because he has nowhere to go. The passing game is our strength and we are at our best when we use the pass to set up the run, not vice versa.

It's worked so far.

After watching the NE/Chi game, I'd really like the Saints to go after CB Asante Samuel in FA.

Make that two of us. It sucks that we have so much money tied into our offense, though. Ehh.

Even if he is a tad overrated he would still beef up our linebackers which is what we need.

I don't think he is worth a first round pick, but that's just me.

One thing the Saints shouldn't do is overlook SF. They've been playing good ball lately and their defense has really been stepping up.

I'm not worried about SF's defense. We can move the ball on just about anybody. I'm worried about stopping Frank Gore, or should I say hoping to contain Frank Gore...

I was very curious as to what Scott thought of Colston, so I resourced his team by team reviews and brought up his review of the Saints. Here was his take on Colston (after the draft):

With their final pick the Saints brought in another sleeper in Marques Colston of Hofstra, who despite playing wide receiver in college will likely be tried out as a tight end or H-Back due to his size. Even though the Saints really don't have a top player established at the position it would be a surprise if Colston were able to make much of an impact as a rookie.

C'mon Scott!!!!! Hindsight is 20/20!
Just wanted to respond:

Notice that quote didn't say anything about what I thought of Colston as a player but merely what I thought his chances were of making the team right after the draft (before he started tearing up their camps). I had Colston as my #7 sleeper prospect, ahead of a number of guys who went much higher them him like Tarvaris Jackson and Paul McQuistan.

Stallworth's departure also really opened things up for Colston down in the Big Easy, it was pretty hard to predict much of a 7th round pick immediately after the draft

I was very curious as to what Scott thought of Colston, so I resourced his team by team reviews and brought up his review of the Saints. Here was his take on Colston (after the draft):

With their final pick the Saints brought in another sleeper in Marques Colston of Hofstra, who despite playing wide receiver in college will likely be tried out as a tight end or H-Back due to his size. Even though the Saints really don't have a top player established at the position it would be a surprise if Colston were able to make much of an impact as a rookie.

C'mon Scott!!!!! Hindsight is 20/20!
Just wanted to respond:

Notice that quote didn't say anything about what I thought of Colston as a player but merely what I thought his chances were of making the team right after the draft (before he started tearing up their camps). I had Colston as my #7 sleeper prospect, ahead of a number of guys who went much higher them him like Tarvaris Jackson and Paul McQuistan.
I noticed. I think that guy was just trying to prove you wrong or something.

I kept up with as much of Saints training camp as I could and I remember reading articles that mentioned how impressive Sean Patyon and the rest of the coaching staff were with Colston. Also, the emergence of Jamal Jones, someone who went undrafted but has also impressed coaches as well but still needs some development, really were the keys in trading away Stallworth. I was wary of us trading Stallworth since I thought he stepped it up last year but the risk has paid off. You never know what you're going to get from a 7th Rd. draft pick, sometimes you'll find a stud but more than likely you'll find a dud.

I remember my friend calling me up and telling me about who we drafted in the end of the draft and he told me we drafted a wide receiver from Hofstra and I told him "what a waste. he's not making the team"

I'm not worried about SF's defense. We can move the ball on just about anybody. I'm worried about stopping Frank Gore, or should I say hoping to contain Frank Gore...
Frank Gore, an emerging Alex Smith, and a returning Vernon Davis scare me as well. I never look past a game, much like Sean Payton. One game at a time and from here on out, it's a 5-game playoff.

Exactly. I got into that mind set when Nick Saban became coach at LSU and I'm a believer of that style. Frank Gore is a beast. He's really going to be something special.

What do you guys think of us getting Patrick Willis in Scott's new mock draft? I absolutely love the pick. We could then address CB in Round 2.

As some of you may know, and I'm sure some of you probably don't know, there used to be a Saints fan on here named SaintsDomePatrol. I first met him when Ward paired us together to Co-GM the Saints in last year's forum mock.

Here's a picture of him: (Warning it's a rough police sketch after he was wanted for cutting the head off of 50 chickens and banging a beagle)


Well, let's cut to the chase... SaintsDomePatrol and I started hanging together outside of NFLDC. We went to strip clubs, drank beers, he passed out in my yard a few times, and tried dating my sister. Then he did the unthinkable. He betrayed my trust and went against a decision of mine. That is something my friends don't do, because I know people that will take care of someone like that.

Then the day came where they did take care of him and this is how we did it:

First a beating with this:


Then tortured him by showing him this:
h
(Well, her tv show and reruns of it)

Finally we put him through this:


At the end, he looked like this:


The point of this is to let everyone know that SaintsDomePatrol (SDP) will no longer be active on this forum anymore. Let's have a moment for him.

Please don't ban me.... :(
