If it ain't broke, leave it alone.
Holy mackerel, this thread again?
Here's my opinion: it's an absolutely horrendous idea.
Simoneau doesn't even play that much to begin with. The Saints play a lot with a nickel defense, and move the extra DB into the box, outide, all over the place.
Just last night I saw breakdown of the Saints defense on the NFL channel, and they mentioned Simoneau as playing really smart, heady defense.
I think we should bring back Ronald McKinnon, or maybe even Charlie Clemons.
Not to mention we're only giving up 3 YPC up the middle but 5+ along the edges. "Maybe Simoneau isn't getting to the edges quick enough and thats the problem!" It could be, and i'm not opposed to drafting a quick playmaking MLB like Patrick Willis. But an even slower Danny Clark doesn't exactly fix that problem in the interim does it?
