Nick Toon And The Saints


Trouble
 Share

Recommended Posts

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett considers fourth-year WR Nick Toon the "strong frontrunner" to serve as New Orleans' No. 3 receiver this year.

Seantavius Jones and Brandon Coleman have drawn more OTA headlines, but Toon is in the driver's seat to work into three-receiver packages behind Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston. 26-year-old Toon had a quiet first three seasons in the league, but came on down the stretch in 2014 and ran 4.43-4.54 at 6-foot-2, 215 coming out of Wisconsin. He's a deep sleeper to monitor.
LOL remember when people used to not care about HD because #3 backs weren't important.
Colston has lost 5 steps so expect Toon to be important.
They should have Kept Graham. Seahawks are still praising him over there. Talking about he is a monster in the redzone and catches everything his way. No one can cover him.
Im glad we don't have to worry about Graham twice a year now.

Actually we do, JG was Breesus crutch the last few seasons. That and dump off passes to the RBs...don't come after me, go after PAYTON MAN!

TE production in the red zone will especially fall off, but we were a dynamic offense long before Jimmy Graham arrived on the scene.

C.J. Spiller is a dynamic playmaker (if he remains healthy) and should expand that pass catching RB role.

I think the addition of Unger to keep to pocket clean for Brees to step up into, he will have the time needed to get the ball in the hands of his playmakers. Saints will move the ball again this year. Will the defense stop anybody? Yet to be answered.

Spiller will be good but i think he wont stay healthy. Brees almost got Graham killed by passing up the middle. No reason brees tried those passes. But who knows. Im going off that you get that matchup with a lb he will probably go up the middle with him or toon and one is gonna end up dead.

You guys acyually won your SB without Graham, so I'll definitely give you that you were dynamic without him.

But that was also five years ago, and five years on an aged qb can prove to be not so good... especially when for the past five years, Graham has averaged something in the range of 40% of Drew's first reads...

Yes, but remember our mantra Shred:

Roddy > Colston

just sayin'

Roddy is the best WR in Falcon History

and thats saying something considering we have had guys Like A Jenkins, A Jackson, T Mathis, T Martin, E Metcalf, M Haynes and A Rison

easy to forget what White has done for us with the Beast that is J Jones wearing Red and Black these Days.....

At what age does a QB lose the ability to adapt to new players and a new game plan?

That was when Breesus was a bit younger and the offense was more balanced. The deep ball has been virtually non-existent the last few years and Breesus ain't getting any younger!

Isn't the reason we are trying to improve our o-line is to improve the run game and be more balanced? Edited by Aquietguy

I don't know... how old is Brees?

Passed it im sure.

Brees is arm isnt what it was and the saints know it. He might have 1 or 2 good punts a game. But thats why they are going after speedsters. But the Raiders been trying that for years and big gains might = qb stats. But its not a deep pass for that gain.

Still Brees career is probably winding down and Payton never seemed to respect his rbs the way he should.

Romo actually stands a better chance at winning the sb than Brees at this point.

Hard to justify Brees price. He is actually holding the Saints back now.

I agree. He is still good but not that kind of good. Payton knows to win they need to balance out the offense because Breesus can no longer carry the load! Also, Rob Ryan ain't helping that defense anytime soon!

He's still considered elite. And a balanced attack is good to have no matter the age of your QB. But even without a run game Brees still manage to put up elite numbers for a QB of any age.

As for defense, Falcons have no room to mention it. I'm less concerned about our D than you should be.

Not knocking Breesus, just sayin' he is not what he once was. He is still close to a top 5 QB

I think you will see our defense vastly improved. I suspect (and hope) we are at least 10 spots higher than the saints defense!

You will also see a vast improvement in our D. We will be much closer to 2013 than last year I believe our draft class this year will end up being considered very stellar in a few years.

Payton cared more about Vicodin then his running backs. He never knew what any of them were until they were wrong. And he sure as heck did not know how to use their full potential.

Spiller won't be an every down back like he was in Buffalo.

So his chances of getting hurt will be lessened.

spiller was a every down back? When?

Technically he was in a two back rotation in Buffalo.

In NOLA, he'll be in a 3 back rotation.

Payton is smart enough to know how to optimize Spiller's strengths and lessen his chances at getting him hurt.
