I still think we have a problem at TE, at least a pass catching TE. Eric needs to stay healthy or we lose that pass catching threat over the middle.
LB backups (age)...Fincher (23), Faulk (25), Evans (29), Koehl (22), Sims (23) and Mitchell (22) (whom I think will make an impact at LB and ST).

Injuries are apart of football... big deal. The Saints are in great shape with depth.

I don't think you can go into a NFL season with a 'back up' anymore. You really need to have 2 capable starters at QB and some other positions now a days.

1. Linebacker
2. Quarterback
3. Fullback - who IS our second fullback?
4. Defensive end

that's what I think anyway

I'm confident the younger corners will step up if worse comes to worst

According to the depth chart on the Saints website.....Jamaal Branch is the backup and then Kevin Dudley at fullback. The Saints also have Keith Greer listed as a rookie from Idaho at FB.

I think were okay

If I had to pick, I would have to say at QB.

I really think Martin will be fine with the starting front line. However, it would be nice to have someone a little stronger in the #2 hole. I feel he could win a playoff game but not NFCCG or the SB.

I agree with the above statement in being confident in the young CB's, they will step up and perform fine.

LB's: I wish we could have gotten a QB killer at that spot, but we should be fine there too.

The only major upgrade I feel that is need, is the Saintsations need smaller and tighter outfits.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

I think they have a strong team. No team can get perfect positions on their teams. I think they have gotten the best players in each position on the team.
