Saints After Shockey?!

SAINTS STILL AFTER SHOCKEY?
Posted by Mike Florio on March 24, 2008, 8:33 p.m.
Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger, acting on the advice of Peter King in his MMQB column, has done some sniffing around regarding the interest of the New Orleans Saints in Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey.

Per Garafolo, [URL="http://blog.nj.com/ledgergiants/2008/03/more_shockey_rumblings.html"]the Saints previously offered a second-round pick and safety Roman Harper[/URL]. The Giants said, No thanks.

The real question is whether the Saints will try again. King apparently thinks they will. Based on some of the things weve heard on the grapevine, we agree.

As always, stay tuned.

Honestly it seemed like the Giants were better once he went down. I wonder if they would ever let him go? I wouldn't be upset if he left the east.

I respect Shockey as a player and I wouldn't mind not playing against him twice a year

That's really not a bad deal for him.

Their offense is fine. It's their defense that needs fine tuning. As long as they have Drew Brees at QB they'll be fine. If I worked for the Saints I would be looking over my offensive line and looking for Defensive players to help me out on the other side of the ball. To me it almost looks like the Saints are going in the same direction as the Rams did during the end of the Mike Martz era. Ironically I might also look for a Running Back in the 2nd or 3rd round, of course thats a little to general.

Besides we need Shockey to distract Eli Manning next year.

Well, they did win it all with him on the bench, check that, in the luxury box.

If you honestly think that Shockey is the BEST tight end in the league then you obviously dont know anything about football.

Don't give that moron the time of day,Shockey is good and is "one of" the best when healthy but that's the rub he's never healthy and he's not known as a great rout runner.

Shockey is a tool, but is also a very good TE, both as a reciever and blocker.

Based solely on football ability, I think the Giant's would be making a mistake going w/Kevin Boss as their starter. Sure he had some good games in their run to the super bowl and he might be a solid nfl player for years to come, but he's not going to make the plays Shockey does. I think Boss' success was just another part of a great run by the g-men. They will have a really tough time getting to .500 in 08 IMO. There's no way they can win like that again.

On the other hand, if Shockey is a problem on the team & not good for team chemistry, their success last year w/out him might not have been coincidental.

Defense??? They have a prolific enough offense with youngsters such as Reggie Bush and Marques Colston; as for the Saints defense, they're without a prayer.
