Exclamation Saints must improve defense to return to postseason

The Saints did not meet expectations in 2007 after having one of the most dramatic turnarounds in NFL history in 2006. However, under head coach Sean Payton and QB Drew Brees, the Saints have one of the league's most explosive offenses and it places a lot of pressure on opposing defenses. Since hiring Payton, general manager Mickey Loomis and his personnel staff have done a nice job of building this team through the draft, while supplementing players through free agency to address some immediate needs. But if the Saints want to return to the postseason, they must find a way to improve their defense. It finished 26th in yards allowed and 30th against the pass last season and has been the Achilles' heel of this team since Payton arrived in 2006.
