From the game time thread on the Saints message board:
SubmarineMike: As thin as we are on WR/TE, maybe we should have made a play for their superstar TE Dan Arnold. Dude seems like a real game changer.
St. Aaron: Now I know what Carolina felt like when Ginn came to the Saints and learned how to catch.
I think it was Baldy's enthusiasm about our rookies that most grabbed my attention. Sucks that Jaycee suffered a freak injury. But love to see how TMJ, Tremble and Hubbard all stepped up when CMC went out. Yes, there will be rookie mistakes. But playing these guys now in live game reps versus the opponents starters. Invaluable for their development and bodes so well for the future of the team. When you know much more precisely what you have in one rookie class, makes it so much easier to scout and draft the next one. You're not just guessing and hoping that so and so can become a good player based on practice reps. You already have evidence pro or con on the field.
Makes it more important to my way of thinking that Brady C and Deonte Brown get some playing time.
