This was a great move. It seemed like they did it in response to their game with the 49ers. If they didn't have Sanders on the 49ers the saints surely would have won. That huge lucky bomb play they had and the other one Sanders threw I believe. Without that threat AND that threat added to the saints I think they have the edge now. It's just like the cowboys stealing Charles Haley from the 49ers. They will win this next matchup against the 49ers
Great POV.

I don't think Manny Sanders understands how much love his grandma is gonna get from the WHO DAT Nation. I don't know how she became a Saints fan... maybe grandma is from the NOLA area and now lives in Texas, but she's gonna be a star.

From the X's and O's side of things I'm trying to figure out how defenses will handle Thomas, Sanders, Cook, and a healthy AK. It comes down to math.

Thomas = 2 Defenders
Sanders = 1 Defender
Cook = 1 Defender
AK = 1 Defender

So that's 4 players tying up 5 defenders.

And that 1 defender on AK will oftentimes be a linebacker. If you decided to double AK that'll open up things for others.

Its gonna be fun watching the offense again. We just need the Oline to hold up.

I don't think we're done, either. I still think we use a high draft pick on a WR.

They'll probably play zone while bull-rushing the interior of our O-line to limit our time and options.

If they add another average to above average WR then by my calculations we'll be unstoppable. If a team runs man it'll be one on one across the board.
I think TQS will play better this year if he can stay healthy. Wanna see how they use him since we got a legit #2 now. Don't sleep on him cause with all the attention that would be put on MT and E Sanders this is gonna be good. :yes:
