Drew just threw an awful pick, good thing Samuel acted like jack ass. Cam Jordan impresses me more and more as I rewatch 2012— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
Ivory just housed the entire Falcon defense. If healthy I think Jet fans will love him and Rob Ryan will be very tempted to over use him— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
lack of pass rush by Saints deF can't be over stated.more I watch Saints O-line more I think they can play start Armstead and be ok at LT— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
For all the talk of Graham's struggles in 2012 & I think he has more hurt than he let on against ATL he shows that he is destroyer of worlds— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
Hicks every now & then looks like young L'roi Glover with burst of power/speed. Of course it was like twice a month inn 2012 but it's there— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
Watching Graham be Godzilla in downtown Tokyo against ATL secondary, @andrewjuge theory of Watson/Graham duo being really good intrigues— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
Also @andrewjuge have we forgotten about Corey White? Yes he was atrocious early in '12 but he got better & that's what we want from rookies— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
@milnemalbrough he sucks— Andrew Juge (@AndrewJuge) May 25, 2013
@andrewjuge He went from being not NFL worthy to warm body by ATL game. He does fit Saints draft success; small school+ physical skills— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
Saints up 28-17 and they STILL CAN'T EVEN TOUCH MATT RYAN.Please Rob Ryan deliver us a pass rush even if it's average it will be better— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
Will Smith has no speed and he can't over power tackles anymore so please explain why he will be ok at LB? I will wait— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
The Saints just rushed 6 and Lindsay Lohan is closer to an Oscar than Saints were to Matt Ryan— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
Saints survive late. To recap; Graham awesome, Brees Awesome, pass rush a disgrace and that is Rob Ryan's biggest challenge— Ralph Malbrough (@MilneMalbrough) May 25, 2013
