Both are big boys,Crisp (6'7) and Fragel (6'8).

Interesting stuff
- Regarded as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Crisp was listed as the No. 2 offensive tackle prospect in the class of 2010, behind only Seantrel Henderson.
- Fragel has been in the league since 2013 and has only played in 1 game.

maybe might be good as a 6th linemen to bring in for blocking? linemen eligible?

Sometimes it just feels like our coaching staff does some stuff just to show the owner and the fans, how much they are trying .... the most inexplicable move by Sean Payton was to get Lulz to kick ... he wasn't there in the offseason and there was a healthy competition between forbath and Barath which Forbath won ... and then they go ahead and get a new kicker .... the kicking game played a role in both loses so far ... JUST GET A GOOD KICKER ... ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ...

Forbath missed a kick this weekend, didn't he?

So did Barth.

We've been bringing in players regularly since 2006. Most teams do, since you never know when you're going to lose, say, five cornerbacks in a six-month period.

It's what a good organization does, and why we've never lost more than nine games in a season the last 10 years.

Folks, we do this every week, every season. We are constantly creating and adjusting our list of "in case" players - guys we can call in the event of a long-term injury.

No need to jump off the deep end.

Here we go again scrambling for bodies because of poor decisions in the past

Seriously, people need to just chill out. We bring people in every single week early in the season.

His missed kicked wasn't taken for 6 the other way ... Lultz just kicks so low that blocking his kicks is too easy ... even one of the kicks that he made against the raiders in week 1 was tipped ....

If the line blocks, that kick makes it over still. I'm not saying the guy is the next Morten Anderson. But at least put blame where it belongs - on the line that let defenders get through.

Don't they bring players in for tryouts just about every week? Have t they always done that? So why is it treated like its some sort of sogn of failure ?
