#3137000 Credit the Defense for the Victory

Yeah, I was surprised that so many in the poll were giving DA the game ball as opposed to CJ. DA gets a B- in my opinion. CJ gets an A+.

#3135851 If the Panthers make the Playoffs...

Posted by top dawg on 14 December 2014 - 06:03 PM

Who cares. 


Basically.  Division winners go to the playoffs.  That's the way that it has been for decades, and I don't feel compelled to advocate for anything different.  


Cry me a river for teams that don't make it with a better record.  Many teams have been there.

#3133752 I said it many times in regards to Smitty

I find it interesting that people are bringing up Olsen---which not saying that I agree or disagree---but one thing about it: If Olsen gets hurt, at least we have B-Will and Ed Dickson.  If KB gets hurt, well...Corey Brown and company are not the answer.

You're crazy. LOL

#3129505 This accident to Cam is the reason why he needs to HOLD OUT next year

Posted by top dawg on 10 December 2014 - 09:11 PM

Not really about financial security as much as it is about market value. Like it or not, Cam is going to get paid whatever he and the market demands, and he can use whatever tools or strategies that he deems necessary to that end.

Most times, neither the owner, GM, agent, or player is making this type of financial decision out of the goodness of their heart. There is usually some leeway as long as everyone is reasonable and stays within the ballpark, but financial interest (for those of you that don't like the term "financial security") is what it's all about.

#3127231 Cam Involved in serious car wreck, reportedly uninjured

Posted by top dawg on 09 December 2014 - 02:49 PM


Aints fans are the dumbest:


"Cell phone + driving+ stupidity + no seat belt = Cam Newton."



I know. I thought that Falcons fans were the worst, but lately the Saints fans have been toilet mold suckers.


Cam is from Atlanta, so perhaps that is why they are being respectful.

When I saw that patented smile as he was on the ground, I knew he'd be alright. Thank God for gargantuan Dodge trucks.  Anyone know about the other vehicle and the condition of its occupant(s)?

#3125641 Rookie Wide Receiver Update

Posted by top dawg on 08 December 2014 - 07:40 PM

OBJ has been covered by teams #1 Corner too. Not really sure what your point is? OBJ a better route runner, hands catcher, more explosive and better at the catch point. 


Even Richard Sherman called OBJ a "great player".

Because starting the game with a three and out is not ideal.


Boom, goes the dynamite!

Good things happen when holes open up.

#3124977 Your tears are delicious

Posted by top dawg on 08 December 2014 - 11:34 AM

Brown paper bags buried in landfills---long forgotten---have finally gotten their vindication.  


Full gone trees that will soon be chopped down and hurried along to the paper mills are near the end of their reincarnation.


But somewhere, some sapling is dreaming of the day when it will help grace the faces of the Superdome.


Cry those tears, Saints fan.


Water the ground to start this circle of your life.



#3124805 KB should continue to get better at routes, but...those hands

Posted by top dawg on 08 December 2014 - 10:04 AM

Yeah, but when you say that we need to go find a number one receiver and compare KB to Lafell, it sounds like you are saying that he can't be a number one.


I stand by what I said. If KB doesn't stop dropping passes, he won't be what he can be---obviously what Panthers fans want him to be. He drops some big passes too.  Ultimately, the WR1 label is kind of beside the point.


Jerry Rice. Enough said.


And please show me another rookie receiver who has been their #1 receiving threat all season getting double and triple coverage and having to be handled by the #1 CB week in and week out?


When you get that one let me know.


#1 receiver receiving %; First 12 games; #1 receiver listed first.

Panthers: 51.8% Kelvin Benjamin and ?. Benjamin top target 9 weeks.

Bills: 52.0% Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. Watkins top target 6 weeks.

Bucs: 46.7% Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans. Evans top target 5 weeks.

Jaguars: 52.8% Cecil Shorts, Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, and Marquise Lee. Robinson top target 5 weeks.

Dolphins: 55.1% Mike Wallace and Jarvis Landry. Landry top target 3 weeks.

Saints: 60.3% Marques Colston, Kenny Stills, and Brandin Cooks. Cooks top target 3 weeks.

Giants: 56.1% Victor Cruz, Reuben Randle, and Odell Beckham. Beckham top target 3 weeks.

Eagles: 59.7% Jeremy Maclin, Jordan Matthews, and Riley Cooper. Matthews top target 2 weeks.

Packers: 62.5% Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams. Adams top target 2 weeks.


Which of these rookie receivers listed do you think would get the most attention from the secondary in their game planning? Kelvin Benjamin because he is the only threat at WR the team has for a given week. Every CB on the opposing team devotes a majority of their time preparing for Kelvin Benjamin.


If you want Benjamin's reception % to go up find him a couple more wide receiver options the secondary has to worry about in their game planning.


That's a good point about the fact that he is our only legit weapon at the position, but we really won't get clarity as to how he compares to his peers for a few more years as most of these guys actually transition into the main receiving threat on their respective teams.  


I've already mentioned that he should get better with another threat (or two) on the field. That's about the whole point.  I just hope that he stops dropping big passes.  Not only can his drop percentage stand improving, but he needs to stop dropping passes when he drops them. Moreover, his completion percentage, overall efficiency, and TDs when his drop percentage improves.  He has left too many opportunities on the ground.


On an off note, so many people have said that Smitty would have hurt KB, but perhaps he would have helped KB's completion percentage.

Holy poo.  Talk about some tight ass paper bag-wearing conspiracy theorists... lmao this thread here is just gold and all the more satisfying after an ass-whooping like today.  We beat em so bad they can't explain or make sense of wtf just happened.


And it's not one of those random poo threads like you get here on the Huddle where OP gets bashed for being an idiot.  EVERYONE ACTUALLY fuging AGREES WITH THIS CLOWN. :lol:


Lmao but seriously, head on over and check it out: http://saintsreport....6/#.VIVNijHACSq






















Lol and those are just the first few posts on the first page.  It's a 6 page thread.



They're not sober.

#3124456 Looks like we landed at least 4 starting caliber players from the 2014 draft...

Posted by top dawg on 08 December 2014 - 03:02 AM

I don't think people really know just how rare it is for a team to find undrafted FA's and practice squad players to contribute, yet Dave finds them like it's the norm. Rookie GM's will always make their mistakes (hell, even established GM's do), but Dave has proven to be a damn good talent evaluator and I can't wait to see what coach he hand picks for us next year.


The people giving up on him only after 1.5 seasons are stupid. I still back him no matter how much I disagreed with his past offseason moves. Next year will tell me a lot however.


The Super Bowl champions had (have) more than a few UDFAs that contribute.  It may be difficult to find contributing UDFAs, but I don't think that it's as difficult as you are suggesting.  


I can think of a few this year on different teams, like Isaiah Crowell, Brandon Oliver, Allen Hurns, and Jonotthan Harrison.


G-man has done an OK job so far, but he has to do better than he did this past draft in order to keep the ship moving in the right direction.   


We can't rely on UDFAs.

#3124449 Looks like we landed at least 4 starting caliber players from the 2014 draft...

Posted by top dawg on 08 December 2014 - 02:38 AM

Benjamin is starting material, as well as Benwikere from the relatively small work that we've seen.  The other draft picks may not even start on most teams.



As for the UDFAs, Norwell is nice, but we really need to see more. Brown may be a nice role player, but I really don't think that he should start.  He is also small and seems to be injury prone.
