Jason David is the Army Corps of Engineers of Defensive Backs

Or perhaps the Army Corps of Engineers is the Jason David of flood protection.

In any case, it was a beautiful experience to be back in the Sacredome.

ADDENDUM: At the risk of jacking up GW, who might say I'm reading too much into a preseason game:

Gary Gibbs is the Michael Brown of defensive coordinators.  Or perhaps Michael Brown is the Gary Gibbs of FEMA directors.  You're doin' a heckuva job, Gibbsy.

The Saints don't have a pass rush and haven't created a turnover since, like, 1997.  That can't just be the players.  That sounds like scheme issues.

Can I have a job?

Rickie's Bio said...

In 1996, as the Saints’ linebackers coach, Venturi took over as interim head coach eight games into the season and was retained as linebackers coach in 1997, adding the duties of assistant head coach, which he would hold through the 2001 season. Venturi took over coaching the Saints’ defensive backs in 1998, as the New Orleans secondary scored five of a franchise-record nine defensive touchdowns.

In 2002, New Orleans’ defense tied for third in the NFL with 38 takeaways. The Saints’ 2003 defense improved each week, as it gave up only 207 points over the last 12 games of the season (17.2 average), also allowing only 48 points in the final four games. In 2004, Venturi’s unit solidified in the season’s final four games allowing 15.3 points. The Saints’ 2005 defense ranked third in the league against the pass.

It was heaven.

I was good, huh?

I think I got a better shot at being seen in NO.

No sir. Not at all. Jason David transcends the meaninglessnessessess of preseason. "Jason David sucks" is 100% appropriate 24/7/365 and regardless of circumstances. Lamenting his presence on the roster (let alone the field) ain't just for breakfast anymore.

What the hell is with this franchise and corners? It's downright spooky.

Jason David sucks.

Hofstra has another player in Black and Gold.

He ain't no smooth, though

He ain't bumpin #42 off the roster, either.

Well, let's drop off these clowns NOW!

Jason David should not be on the roster. He obviously can't play. It's not his fault he sucks. I would stand out there and get my ass handed to me too for a 16.4 mil. four year deal. Do we all see more clearly than the Saints coaching staff? I don't think so! Remember the movie "Major League" where the owner wants to get rid of the team and hires a bunch of complete fuck-tards? Benson is the root of all evil and David is a fuck-tard! Jason David is the Anti-Saint. It's hard to be a Saint fan!!!!
