Didn't the Saints already have an "explosive offense"?

Either way, it was a good trade for everyone.

I think there are times when things are going on behind the scenes that fans don't know about. I thought, for example, the Steelers messed up when they traded Barry Foster to the Panthers, but they really took Carolina for a ride in that deal. None of us really know what was going on with Shockey. In time we may find out this guy was damaged goods and the Saints got a raw deal.

When a guy plays well, and sometimes exceptionally well, like TO or Randy Moss, etc….his play can make his mouth easy to deal with. Once he gets too big for his own good and his skills decline, he is sent packing.

Shockey was always an oddball. I remember reading about him once in a magazine article that said he used to literally force himself to eat dirt after his team would lose in College.

Dude…..

Actually I hope the Giants stumble horribly this year. I cant stand Eli. Shockey and Strahan were the only players on that team I would love to have here.

Good for Shockey. Now he and Reggie Bush can go be overrated together.

Overrated...
Shockey when healthy is one of the top 3 or 4 TE's in the league guys. The guy plays with tremendous heart and plays hard on every play. Now, that being said, I dont like the way he whines and cries alot of times, but you cant say that the guy is not very talented.
Now, Bush.. he might have been a little overhyped but he is entering his 3rd season, so this may be the make or break year for him. This being said.. I think that the Saints are a better team with him and I look for big things for the Saints in '08 with or without him.
