The Saints Post-Brees Era

0 comments

As the season gets closer and closer and I think about the time after Brees, it saddens me yet also excites me to see what the young guys can do with the franchise, (after Brees retires after this season with a ring of course.) A Young, mobile QB paired with Kamara, ohhhhh boy! The biggest concern is keeping everyone as they will be super expensive, i.e. Michael Thomas. We need them for not only their skill but also Morale, that locker room is irreplaceable and everyone knows it... It hurts enough with Ingram gone but we need to keep as much as that locker room intact as possible... It's a great group of guys who love to have fun and dance for Louisiana but also will keep it serious and put the team and city on their back. Excited to see what is up next... What is everyone else thinking regarding this?

  • Saints vs Rams Predictions anyone? I feel as it will be mostly an offensive battle, but looking to see if we correct some of our week one mistakes with play calls, and also looking to see if Trey can dominate on the edge again as he did last week over davenport. Brees is going to be on fire with MT as this is a "Revenge" game after all. Yet it is only week 2 so nothing to go crazy over and we need to come out of this game healthy, and with a big ol 2-0 heading into next week. #Nutz4Lutz
  • So, we are getting ever closer to the 2019 season. What are everyone's honest thoughts on what the Saints will do in 2019? Personally I don't see us winning 13 games this year as we have a tough looking schedule. I see 11/12 wins, we will still win the NFC south as I don't think any of the other teams have improved enough. 12 wins could still give us home field advantage and if we get that again this year then for me the Superbowl is very much within our grasp. Roll on September!!
  • Whenever the NFL Draft comes around, there are certainties in life: 1. Saints are going to trade up 2. Saints will not address a position fans believe they really should address 3. Saints will screw up a linebacker pick 4. Saints will always have at least 1 UDFA RB & WR. One of those UDFA players that I am very curious about is Nebraska RB Devine Ozigbo. When doing a mock draft, he was often a common player that would I look up, and consider drafting as a RB3. When tracking Day 3, I saw his name still available as it went along, and just like that... the draft ended and he was still there. As soon as I saw it, I was hoping Saints would manage to get him as an UDFA (along with several others), and we did. When pondering why he became an UDFA, I looked at his film, and dug a little deeper into his scouting report. His key weaknesses were that he had not so good long speed, and had rather bad games against quality opponents (such as vs. Michigan St. and vs. Iowa), but his positives were that: he was proficient in pass pro, had good power, very little tread, had some receiving ability, and was very good in short yardage. Perhaps he'll be the one that could maybe beat out Dwayne Washington, or at least perform well enough to create a RB4.
