Will Smith vs. Darren Howard

"The Saints had no qualms about letting DE Darren Howard sign with the Eagles as a free agent because they rank DE Will Smith as their best defensive player and want to get him on the field more. Howard's presence was stifling Smith by forcing him to share snaps and spend too many plays on the sideline. The team also expects Smith to become more of a leader with an expanded role; he has the respect of teammates because of his all-out style and no-nonsense demeanor. . . . "

Smith is awsome and will be 10 times the player Howard was. Howard was consistantly injured and I did like him. Grant was real quite last year, I hope he returns to form.

If he stays healthy and plays at his current level, I would say he's there already. The guy forces fumbles consistantly, gets to the quarterback, and is disruptive not to mention is a solid tackler.

Not to take anything from Howard, I really liked him, but he just could not get on the field after his first three years. He was a great pass rusher, but he just could not stay healthy.

CHACHING, Rotate the three of them to keep them all fresh. MAN, what a force. QBs would be looking to dump the ball at all times for fear of the sack.
