according to Skip and that other guy, they believe that Z Thomas will sign with the Pats...they have no inside info, but just their gut feelings (Saints were mentioned as being interested).....they also reported that there are already 11 teams trying to get Crumpler....so it looks like its goin to be a bidding war for Alge.........just passing on the info....

I think he will go to the Pats also, but I wouldnt be surprised if the Saints got him either, I mean come on, they are New England, there always in contention for the SB its not exactly a bad career move even if its not the right fit for him, he wants to win a Super Bowl.

Thats the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard you say.

In 05 and 06 he had 780 yards and 885 yards recieving, with MV as his QB. In 07, despite never having a set QB, he still put up almost 500 yards before getting hurt halfway through the year.

He is a legitimate top 5 TE talent.

Couldn't agree more. This guy would be a huge weapon in our offense.

Or blinded by our horrible history with getting really good 'pro-bowl' calibre TEs and then seeing nothing some some reason or other. This place is a graveyard for good TEs going back a couple of decades.

Those teams didn't have Lt. Brees at the helm, nor did it have Cpt. Payton. :D

There is no need for that stupid sarcastic reply. He was just passing along what he heard for those who can't watch TV all day long.
Relax. I appreciate the information, but Skip's opinion is, as the OP stated, pretty much baseless (he's just going with the popular opinion right now) as usual and really doesn't hold any weight with me. Hey, maybe he gets it right this time, but it won't change my opinion of the guy.

Actually, they're 0-1 with EJ. I know it doesn't sound bad but to a team that's seen the past regimes go 0-9....0-1 can do a lot to a person's head.

Alge Crumpler is one of the few "complete" TE's in the NFL. It's rare to see his receiving talents and blocking ability in one package. It's an added bonus that he would get to stick it to the Falcons twice a year if he signed with the Saints.

His signing by far would be the best offseason move by the Saints since the signing of Drew Brees...

Not that I don't believe what was said, but Skip Bayless' opinion hold about as much water as a paper bag full of holes. Bayless is a steaming pile of cow dung, figuratively speaking.

I too believe that a Crumpler signing would be very, very special. As good as our offense is, it lacks that playmaker at the TE position. Let's see, Brees would have Colston, Bush (in the backfield, slot, wherever) and Alge Crumpler in the seams. This would open up our offense even more.

Something I've noticed watching Crumpler over the years is that he, like many of the top TEs in the league, often require coverage from safety or double coverage. This additional pressure on the defense would loosen things up for Bush coming out of the backfield.
