Scary. Very scary. I worry about our secondary all the time. They are very very thin.

Any thoughts about Groce or Deloatch?

Interesting question. I saw on ESPNews that he's out for tomorrow.

I'm pretty sure that after 8 weeks we probably only have two offensive co-MVPs: Brees and Colston. There may be some debate about the interior offensive line, since we've never seen what happens when Faine, Nesbit, and Evans are out, right? Nor do I want to.

The offense will be fine without Horn. Brees simply spreads the ball too well to be bothered about one receiver being out. Last week showed that he'll deliver the ball to whomever's out there. Look at the two TDs to Henderson and the pass to the 3 to Miller as evidence.

I'm really worried about Fred Thomas not being out there though.

Well if Horn is out someone again will have to step up, it seems that there's a different player on the team who steps up every game, the difference in this Saints teams from years past.

Actually the way I see it the same offensive players step up every game: Brees and Colston. Duece and Reggie have been in and out with the run game. We've had a ton of tight ends. Horn and Henderson have been in and out, though productive when they've been in.

But it seems like Colston is the engine and Brees is the oil that makes the engine go. Any time both those guys are on the field, I feel like the offense has a chance to be productive.

I'd love to see Reggie get that 100 yd rushing game with 2 TDs. Or see Duece dominate for 4 quarters. But it hasn't happened yet.
