F.Thomas and the other secondary players are mostly on the right tune, if we can get Deloatch more practice and get Thomas to stay consistent, we'll look way better....Deloatch can be a good key vs big physical recivers like Clayton, Lelie, and Keyshawn
groce would be a better option than deloatch, right now. not saying i'm validating either one, but offenses tee'd off on deloatch when he was starting for the giants...real, real bad. he needs time to work with the system, and more importantly, build back his confidence.

But damn, 2-0. PAnthers and Bucs 0-2. Smile Saints fans smile. We have a real test next week.
Exactly! We're 2-0 and I can guarantee not many people and the so-called "experts" thought we'd get out of the gates like this. The first real test, as Whodi mentioned, will be against the Falcons next Monday night. The Falcons will come in with their backs against the wall. We all just THOUGHT Katrina did a number on the Dome roof. Wait until MNF, a national stage, when all those crazed Saints fans start cheering our beloved once again in the Dome. It is very likely to bring tears to my eyes. If the run defense can play anywhere like they have been the first two weeks, then it is going to give Dunn and Vick pure hell. Vick will HAVE to try and beat us with the pass, and I'm not sure if he can do it. If the Saints don't lose their drive and the heart they've displayed thus far, then it's going to be an amazing game. I can't wait for it to get here.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

I think that Payton's waiting until next year to fix the corners. Unless there's a gem lying unnoticed in FA, we're stuck with the Juke Out Brothers until March 1, 2007.

In the meantime, I'm waiting to see how our novice safeties whom Payton focused the entire preseason development attention on progress. So far, not so good. I know we won, but luck was on our side for several plays when these two were out of position.

I wonder if Ron Mexico will be able to read them like Farve and Frye?

The Saints run defense has been great. Yeah the corners are garden variety but obviously passing is not Mike Vicks strength. I'm excited. Trying to keep my expectations low.

No one plays perfect games. They are going to get even better, and they are still 2-0. I just hope fans enjoy the wins.
