Re: Fairly Healthy- I agree immensely with Mike here

I agree, too. Health has been a major concern. We all complained for a long time about our secondary being weak, because we had no pass rush or run defense. Then we get arguably the best secondary in football this year and the front seven improved greatly on the run and the pass. After losing the starting corners for several games and having to play back-ups and rookies, the pass rush and blitzing faded because of the secondary talent level was reduced. The defense was having to play a different, more vanilla style than they were accustomed to at the beginning of the year to make up for the deficiencies in the secondary. That led to being bowled over on the run, and picked apart on the pass. With Greer and Porter both back in the starting line-up, look for the front seven to be head-hunting again. They will make a HUGE difference in the Saints' overall defensive strategy.

All we need is for the Saints to catch fire three more times and time to put it in the history books!

I hope we come in the playoffs healthy. Because we are overlooked and underrated by a lot of analyist right now. And we can come in shocking a lot of people

I'm tired of three-man fronts. With Greer and Porter healthy, let's let them do their freakin jobs, and let's see old man Warner fighting off six or seven Saint defenders next week.
