How to improve this team for 2008

Unlike most people I am not caught up this emotional roller coaster ride we are on in 2007. This is year 2 of building a team. Yes there are growing pains. The pain for me is the lack of rookie involvement on the field. I am sure it is the same with most of you. We expect to get a couple of instant starters like we did in 2006. But to date the only real contributor has been CB young. Thomas has yet to get involved in the game except as a kick returner....

Glamore Position in Flux for 2007

TE
Eric Johnson - 28
John Owens - 27
Billy Miller - 30
Ronnie Ghent - 27
Mark Campbell - 31 (IR)

I actually like the group as a unit. Like the defensive unit some youth would be nice. Johnson has teased us with his abilities at TE and we have yet seen him do half the things he can do.

Draft watch

Darius Hill*, Ball State, 6-6, 233, 4.67, Ball State in the 4th

WR
Marques Colston - 24
David Patton - 33...

Offensively There is NO Reason to Panic over the Offensive Line.

Over the last two off seasons the Saints have slowly pieced together what could be on of the best offensive foundations in the NFL. Now before you guys get the tar and feathers out for me, hear me out. Here is what we have to work with: Youth

LT - Jammel Brown - 26, Jermon Bushrod - 23
LG - Jamar Nesbit - 30, Andy Alleman - 23
OC - Jeff Faine - 26, C/G - Johnathan Goodwin - 28
RG -...

Rent A Defense

The Saints are a lease to own defense. How else can I put it? Look at the unit as a whole. What do we have? Bits and pieces added to the core left over from the Haz administration.

DE - Will Smith and Charles Grant, even at 29, are two solid DE to build around.
FS - Keith Bullocks who is still learning the position and has yet to play a year with same SS and Jay Belemy at 35 years young.
CB - Fred Thomas, Mike McKinzie and Jason Craft. All of them over 31 years of age...
