I\'m not expecting the world out of the D-line. I am aware they are young and inexperienced, but I think they all have what it takes to be a dominating D-line. I do, however expect them to be better than last year\'s line. By the way, I\'m always optimistic about a new season. Normally because I\'ve put the last wasted season behind me, and new horizons bring new attitude. I always have faith in the Saints. The main reason there is because if they played with their heads out of the asses the last few games of the year, we\'d be perrenial Super Bowl contenders.

D it up.. You raise a great point. The interior was softer than norman\'s belly. I hope we get rid of Jakcson soon as well. Problem is I am not sure who we can sign to replace hime. There aren\'t any f.A. DTs out there. Pray for a June 1st cut. I still say Sammy needed to move on though.

I\'m not going to raise the bar if Sammy should\'ve stayed or left. All I am saying is that he and Clemons were the scapegoats of the defense last year and didn\'t deserve it. As far as loyalty, I would\'ve liked to see Sammy stay. I was, and still am a huge fan of his. I hope he does well whereever he ends up. Then again, I\'m excited about all the change the teams are making on defense. There will already be 5-7 new starters on defense. Jones, Sullivan, Ruff, Allen, Mitchell or Green, possibly Ambrose, and MAYBE Kenny Smith. Is it a step up from last year? Time will only tell. I\'ve said it before on my posts, and I\'ll say it again. We won\'t know ANYTHING until they step on the field.

Lawd, Lawd,Lawd the world is coming to an end. Whodat,Pak and me all agreeing on the same subject. New guy\'s remember this day well, it may never happen again. Player wise,our defensive problems started with the defensive line. There were times last season when I thought I could run between our tackles. When these guys can catch a cold it purs more pressure on everyone else. You\'ve got to feel bad for Darren Howard and Grant, because the play of Hand and Jackson made them look bad too.Can you imagine if hand and Jackson would have played ever 25% harder what might have happened?

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt!!!!!

Joe - It\'s like crossing the streams in Ghostbusters man. If Gator wanders in here and agrees the world may just come to an end!

And thanks to Pak for reminding me of something I can\'t believe I had forgotten. Who here thinks Sammy\'s play was bad in \'01 when he went to the Pro Bowl?!? Well, last year he had MORE tackles, and one less INT than the year before. Apparently that ONE INT changed him from being a Pro Bowler to a no good bum. I don\'t know guys. Sammy played more like a linebacker most of the year than a safety. I like our prospects at safety this year, but letting Knight leave may wind up being a mistake.

thats Y i dont understand Y everyone attacks sammy, he had a hell of a year last year... he made more tackles than anyone on the team b/c he was pretty much the only one around the ball, we should have resigned him and played him next to TJ, now that would have been killer, let Sammy run all over teh field and TJ run everyone down

Rod, I agree with you on Kenny Smith, I just hope he plays up to expectation this year. It seems to me the knock on him out of college was he tended to take plays off. That won\'t get it done if he does.
I have a GREAT IDEA, let\'s start a bring Sammy back campaign. I still love the guy for his guts and ball hawk skills.
