A GIANT Championship BLUEPrint for the Saints to follow.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Case in point: Corey Webster FINALLY starting playing better and low and behold, the Giant lineman starting racking up sacks galore. I'm not saying that a pass rush needs talented DLineman, but it also helps if you have secondary that ...

Incorrect... all year long their front 7 has been able to apply pressure on the quarterback. But yes it does help if you have a secondary better than ours.

I back this statement 100 percent. No pressure, no playoffs! Pressure disrupts a QB's rythm, and creates turnovers. Those 2 things along improves your DB's. They have less time having to cover a WR all freakin day. They also will generate turnovers because a QB trying to force something.

Probably 4. Smith is capable. Grant is solid. Fujita works. I'm not sure how Thomas fits. I do know that he needs a stud starting next to him. The two LB slots are unfilled.

There's no way to replace the entire front 7. We have to work with some players on the staff.

From thefreedictionary.com:

o·ver·bal·ance (vr-blns)
v. o·ver·bal·anced, o·ver·bal·anc·ing, o·ver·bal·anc·es
v.tr.
1. To have greater weight or importance than.
2. To throw off balance.
v.intr.
To lose one's balance.
n. (vr-blns)
1. An excess in weight or quantity.
2. Something that overbalances or more than equals something else.

The offense is in excess in weight or quantity as compared to the defense.

The right word for the job.
