Sorry I haven’t written lately…been busy with the TV work.
Random SAINTS thoughts:
-Why did the Saints not re-sign veteran kicker John Carney after the amazing 2006 season? BIG MISTAKE!
Olindo Mare was a total disaster last year and now it appears that given Martin Gramatica’s struggles the Saints could be in the market yet again for a kicker.
-Why not try Randall Gay at safety? Gay played safety in New England and Kevin Kaesviharn seems to struggle in coverage lately. I can’t believe more people aren’t talking about the horrific pass interference call that set-up the Vikings chip shot game-winning field goal on Monday night.
-Please let Usama Young replace Tracy Porter and not Jason David. I don’t get it…Young was the darling of training camp, a guy working out with the first team until he pulled a hamstring…since his injury he only plays special teams and can’t seem to crack into the defensive secondary. WHY?
-I’ve got my doubts but I still believe the Saints are going to pull it together and win the NFC South. Call me crazy.
-I think Reggie Bush is going to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii as the NFC return specialist.
-I think the Saints should start scouting and preparing to draft a free safety in the 2009 NFL draft. Remember these three guys. Taylor Mays from USC, Myron Rolle from Florida State, William Moore from Missouri.
Random COLLEGE FOOTBALL Thoughts:
-Call me crazy, very very very very crazy…..but I right now I haven’t slept much and I kinda think Texas Tech has a chance to upset Texas, Oklahoma and then Missouri in the conference championship game…run the table and play in the BCS title game. So, who will the Red Raiders face? How’s about an undefeated Penn State club! Crazy crazy crazy!
-Sugar Bowl prediction: LSU vs. Connecticut
I think LSU will lose to Georgia during the regular season but run the table the rest of the way. UConn lost quarterback Tyler Lorenzen but their is something about the Huskies I like. Plus, UConn would travel an army of fans to New Orleans for New Year’s Eve and that of course helps the city.
-The Hornets will build off their amazing 2007-2008 season and win 56 games for the second consecutive year. They will also finish second in the Western Conferecne behind the Lakers.
-The Hornets will face an upstart Portland team in the first round of the playoffs and need 7 games to beat the Blazers.
-In the second round of the playoffs the Hornets get revenge and dismantle the Spurs in 5 games.
-The Hornets eliminate the Lakers in 7 games in the Western Conferecne Finals and advance to the NBA Championship to face the Chicago Bulls.
