Fox Sports Blurb on Saints

FOX Sports on MSN - NFL - Bears falling further behind NFC North foes

1. Saints general manager Mickey Loomis tells us that he anticipates that cornerback Mike McKenzie can be healthy enough for training camp in the hot Jackson, Miss. sun. That's major news after McKenzie's ACL surgery. McKenzie was having an outstanding season before his suffered the injury and would look great teamed with free-agent addition Randall Gay.

And write this one down — Jonathan Vilma is going to be a great player in New Orleans this year back in the 4-3. That was a brilliant trade for the Saints. It instantly improves the Saints defense. And Vilma reports he should be 100 percent physically for training camp.


Even more satsfying that this came from an article whose main theme was how much worse the Bears have gotten this offseason.

And so it is writen, so let it be done. !!!! I'm with you all the way. I met Jonathan two years ago he was a very nice to me, and a great guy. I wish only the best for him.

Re: Fox Sports Blurb on Saints

At this point if McKenzie comes back by week 5 or 6 Ill be pretty happy, anything prior to that is a bonus. Heres to hoping we have some of the weaker teams we play early in our schedule.

San Diego weak? Not
Green Bay no Favre? Maybe not
Carolina? Always a tough game
Atlanta? Don't count your chickens yet
Minnesota? Who knows
Tampa? Division game

How is our schedule easy? This is the NFL and early everybody is healthy and playing for a playoff spot. There are no patsy on the list until week 10 if at all.

yeah you guys, the schedule order isn't set. stop reading too much into this, if he comes back for training camp and starts every game of the regular season he still won't be as good as he was last season until atleast week 8.

I know what happened to "It takes at least a year to come back from ACL surgery"? I have had it and McKenzie will not be back to where he was until the next year, he may be 85-90 percent and even there that is better than anything else we have.
