No. He'll command a king's ransom as a free agent after this year.

Indeed. Great surprise so far. Hoping it's not that NO D-Line is terrible.

The Saints D is nothing to write home about. All the same last year's line would have made them look All-Pro!

So they bring Adrian in for the play from the 2, and they pass.

Not a lot of confidence in AP. Thank you, Saints.

Worked that time, kinda like how having Sam throw more than 5 yards downfield worked that one play too... but ya gotta play the averages!

Need a couple of first downs here, run 3-4 minutes off the clock, and we can close the book on Win #1.

Barr is invisible and I'm not thrilled with his body language, as stupid as that sounds.

He was supposed to be a decoy but through Vikings played it well.

Gruden has been groovin' on Sam tonight. I like how he notes that Sam is letting the clock run down to the extreme every play. He is one smart QB.

Very impressed with Cook. Hard to believe this is his first NFL game. Murry might have been a wasted trade. I think McKinnon will do well behind this revamped line.
