I was raised in the lower ninth ward of New Orleans. I have watched the Saints from their opening kickoff. I saw John Gilliam's runback and expected the Saints to champions by 1970. Boy, was I wrong. I got in the games by selling sodas at the games. I couldn't afford the games. I saw the Atlanta blow us out, the Dempsey kick (I have a Dempey signed ball and a Doug Atkins autograph), I saw the two games we gave Atlanta in one season to go 8 - 8 and miss the playoffs for Archie. I have a friend, who named his son Archie. I am now exiled to Charlotte and hear nothing but Panther stuff. I do get to see our boys once a year though. By the way, they still claim to have the best defense in the league. I'm pushing 60 and have one wish. I want to see the
Saints in the Super Bowl before I die, unlike Hap and Buddy D. I miss those guys. Mission accomplished and we won. I bet Hap and Buddy D. are dancing every day in heaven.

Evaluating the Draft from MY Perspective

I have all the respect in the world for Sean Peyton and Mickey Loomis, but we all make mistakes (remember Sullivan). The problem is this was not the year the Saints could afford mistakes. With the...

Examining the Brandon Cooks selection

1970 Kenny Burroughs, 1975 Larry Burton, 1978 Wes Chandler, 1982 Lindsay Scott, 2002 Donte Stallworth, 2007 Robert Meachem. Do you know what these players have in common? They are all the wide...

I'm not sold on bringing him back. I want to see who becomes available after June 1 during the second phase of free agency. Goodwin has lost a lot over the last two seasons and will be available to...

The Draft

I want the Saints to trade down. I'm hoping for Bridgewater to drop past Cleveland. If so we could get a better trade than the one I am about to propose. Rumors have it that Minnesota, Cleveland...

Now that the draft is over, where do we go from here.

I pretty much understand what the Saints did in the draft, but I can't say I was happy we passed on Sharif Floyd. I really thought we were getting a steal when he dropped past the Raiders, but he...

It's not just the 23 million a year.

That's bad enough. You cannot give up 1 out of every 5 dollars to one player and still be able to sign all the other 51 players. It just can't happen. But let's concede you can this incredibly...

I would like to make a list of fond memories of the Saints. I've been giving it some thought and I am in the process of starting to write a book on the Saints. I'm going to call it 'Waiting for the...

There is no due process in NFL System.

I wanted to go on the record

Now, that the Saints have lost Sean Payton for a year, the Saints cannot afford to lose Drew Brees. I said I would eat crow if I had to and I will. I still think he misled his fans and I don't...

Disappointment is not the right word.

I wish I could only say I am disappointed in Drew Brees in this contract dispute. He has repeatedly told the press how much he wants to keep this team together. Now, we find that is all cow manure....

I just read Brees wants 25 mil a year.

If this is true than he is in for a long wait. The team can't afford to give one player 20% of the cap. However, the Saints could give him a large signing bonus say in the 70 million range and...

Now that Brees has received the franchise tag

Marques Colston is history as a Saint. The Saint cannot match the offers he will get from the rest of league. He will get in the 10 to 12 million in the open market and with the way Brees spreads...

Saints need to get creative

I was thinking the other day of a way the Saints could sign Drew for a lower cap value and make him very happy. The Saints need to get creative and sign a seven or eight year deal with a large...
