Junkbond Downgraded to AA

+

Players in the most danger of losing their starting positions: Parys Haralson This is a bit of a cop-out since Haralson is a part-time starter and run-defense specialist. But among the Saints' returning starters, his spot is most up for grabs with the return of Victor Butler, the arrival of rookies Khairi Fortt and Ronald Powell and the emergence of guys such as Keyunta Dawson and Kyle Knox. Meanwhile, there are open competitions for new starters at cornerback and center. -- Mike Triplett

Donte' Stallworth

22

Notable most for the last 2 sentences: His best season (70/945/7) came in 2005 with Jim Haslett's Saints, when Stallworth finished as the No. 21 fantasy wideout. Sean Payton traded him the next offseason.

I like him better than Jacoby Jones, and would Payton really trust a rookie to return kicks? Ford plays WR deep pretty well too. Watch the video (turn down the sound, Jesus1000...): Highlights

Sean Payton ranked #4 NFL head coach

7

" An idiosyncratic leader in a league full of followers...." Sounds about right. I'm a Payton critic and it's his idiosyncrasies that annoy me. What would I tell him to change? I don't know, I'm not smart enough to do that effectively. But when he's good, he's really pretty good.

Saints: WIN NOW!!! Time is short and so is cap money.

+

Trending Down: New Orleans Saints Bad News: Aging roster, awful cap situation. Good News: Coach enthusiasm, franchise quarterback By cutting Smith and other veterans, the Saints can accommodate Graham, sign their draft picks and make one last championship run with an over-the-hill offense and depleted defense. It's a long shot, but if you are going to saddle up for one last ride to glory, Brees, Sean Payton and Rob Ryan are three great choices to lead the cavalry.

You can stop touting Nnamdi Asomugha, he's gassed

4

Free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha has decided to retire. He was released in November. Asomugha is only 32, but simply has nothing left. jm91rs says: Dec 26, 2013 10:11 PM Pro Football Talk Most overrated db ever. The tape never showed that he was a shut down corner. Most of the experts knew that, yet fans continued to act like he was. What happened in Philly was very predictable, no way you can blame how he was used, unless you mean teams actually realized he could be beaten pretty easily.

Saints Offensive Line ranked #8

2

Summary: This is a strong line let down a little by how their interior depth (see Tim Lelito) have performed when given time. Not the dominant unit of old up front

Jabari Greer and torn left ACL to IR

4

Particularly notable: Greer was not playing at a particularly high level before going down, but had been holding his own for the Saints' much-improved defense. In the second season of a four-year, $21.1 million contract, Greer has no guaranteed money remaining beyond 2013. Going on 32, he's due $4.4 million between salary and bonuses in 2014. He may have to be amenable to a pay-cut to keep his roster spot.

Jeff Duncan defies conventional wisdom

2

Jeff Duncan, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune 1 Hour Ago I really don't think the Saints show as many tendencies as people think. In fact, opponents say the Saints are one of the very best in the league at not revealing tendencies. I know Payton works hard in self-scouting to avoid becoming predictable. That said, the Saints don't have a great rushing offense. It's not just Ingram. It's a collective issue. Can they improve? Yes. But I don't think they're ever going to be dominant in that area. Nor do I think they need to be.

The decline of #Saints WR Colston

4

HIS word. Not mine. "Read Twitter Reactions w/ @ChrisWesseling weighing in on the decline of #Saints WR Colston & more from week 6 ffgator.com/gatorblog.php " Jimmy Graham gets game-planned for and taken out of the game and Colston still can't get anything going. Outside of the top 30 WRs his value continues to sink. As Chris Wesseling (@ChrisWesseling) tweeted, "WR Marques Colston has a 78/1,023/7 line over his last 16 games. His line from the 16 games prior: 98/1,469/10." 5 straight games without a TD and Colston is proving to be a major disappointment for anyone relying on him for weekly production.

Brian Allee-Walsh is a smart son of a bitch

22

Mark Ingram can be a productive player in the NFL in the right offense. The Saints' offense under Coach Sean Payton is not the right offense for Ingram, nor is there a pressing need for a back like Ingram to play in this offense. Payton uses multiple formations with a variety of personnel packages. Running backs in Payton's playbook are interchangeable parts. Ingram needs to be with a team that emphasizes running the football. He probably needs to get 18-22 carries a game to maximize his skill set, with a fullback leading the way.

Mark Ingram Pre-Draft Scouting Report

Saints' current status in one paragraph

1

The logic for thinking that the Saints have taken a step toward contention goes like this: the defense has gotten better, and the offense only looks a little weaker, but the offense is likely to come around, and any sign of life from the defense is encouraging. That line of reasoning would be easier to swallow if the Saints offensive line did not look so terrible. The running backs have nowhere to go, and the receiving corps is not nearly as deep as it once was. Drew Brees may find a way to compensate, or he might keep taking hits (four sacks, six hits on Sunday) and throwing the ball into defenders' bellies until he gets himself injured. For now, they are a Finding a Way to Win team that is lucky enough to share a division with the Buccaneers and Panthers, who have an entire GPS filled with paths to defeat.
