    True story, I got to meet Mannie Fresh at the Saints-Panthers playoff game year before last. He DJ'd pre-game and then hung around. We took a picture with him and he posted it to his Instagram. :)

    i saw that post! i'll share it since you didn't.

     i knew this was you when i saw him post it a while back:

    Ohhh you’re one of those...that explains why you’ve been freaking out ever since we drafted a backup quarterback.

    Only had a problem with using a third rounder on a position that in a best case scenario never sees the field. Hard to find the upside in drafting a backup when we had(have) other glaring holes (FS).

    Well damn...if only you told us sooner that we weren’t personally paying for all these players’ contracts, you could’ve saved us so much distress with contracts like Matt Kalil that we were needlessly complaining about this whole time. But now you got me upset that stupid cheap-ass Tepper won’t sign all the FAs!! You’d think the richest owner could fork up some extra dough to monopolize all the top players. Wait, it doesn’t work that way? A...salary cap...? What’s that?

     

    I’m all for paying Cam, but.......what?? I could get behind that logic if we’re talking coaches’ salaries.

    Generally you beat the Saints with pressure, especially up the middle, or win a shootout. We're not a shootout team. The Saints did an excellent job of building an o-line to neutralize our d-line, and making KK nearly useless. RR saw this and decided to make a move to counter the Saints (aka the team we have to beat to go anywhere). RR/Hurney 2.0 made their move by adding McCoy and Burns.

    Luke is a great LB, but he's also limited in what he can do well. Send himp on a blitz and even very small RBs can completely neutralize him. Not good. He also makes his fair share of mistakes, misfitting gaps, taking bad angles, ect. He's human and he's not the key to modern football. I'd rather we spent more on scoring, but Luke inked an incredible contract for basically tackling. Not thrilled about that, but here is to hoping he has a standout season and doesn't look like every other good LB.

    Cringeworthy post

    Luke Kuechly has had some head hits and early in the year seemed to be trying too much, but turned it around and was his old form the second half of the season.  

    Something I feel is going unnoticed is of course not the need of DL talent, but the effect it has on Luke if fixed.  Every time he's led this defense with a stellar DL, he's been an absolute monster, arguably the best MLB of all time.  Rewatching some highlights, you'll see our line got no push last year which made it hard for the entire defense.  We got sacks and well designed blitzes but we were constantly out muscled at the line.  Even in today's NFL with crazy stats and scoring, a dominant DL still wins games.  

    This isn't anything mindblowing, but watching his clips, you just see the level of awesomeness he delivers and it's absurd (Vids at end)

    That is why this draft can be huge.  With Cam healthy: If we fix the DL, we fix this team in my opinion.  

    There is such a plethora of what I'd say is RD3 or better talent that are fits even with our apparent transition (bolded faves): 

    DE/(or) EDGE fits: Rashan Gary, Montez Sweat, Brian Burns, Clelin Ferrell, Jachai Polite, Jaylon Ferguson, Oshane Ximines, Ben Banogu  

    3-4 DE/DT/3 Tech Fits: Christian Wilkins, Dre'mont Jones, Chris Slayton

    NT: Dexter Lawrence, PJ Johnson, Greg Gaines, Demarcus Christmas

    So the short of it:

    Fix this DL, we're contenders.  

    Bump.

    WE ARE NOW CONTENDERS

    And we just drafted a cheap replacement, and have 2 undrafted players who are also cheap as fug. At some point, you can't have your QB taking your team's entire cap space. Tepper will have a say so in that for sure if we aren't winning 

    ya'll let me know if i'm reading too much or if this dude is low-key hoping QB1 doesn't bounce back in a big way....

    @thebigcat what you got

    Eh, in the age of Twitter I don't care so much about who breaks that news.  What Jourdan has done so well is build rapport and trust with many in the locker room that gives her some opportunities to do more in-depth behind the scenes stuff on things like Pep and hurricane relief, or Ian Thomas and autism.  Her human interest stories re: players, and even Tepper have been top notch.

    I agree. But it’s different strokes i guess.

    i don’t find much interest in reading about those behind the scenes articles, although I know they’re well done.

    losing Jourdan does suck, but it doesn’t effect how my news is delivered
