I'm going to miss him. I had a picture of him and me, that was taken at Emeril's on my facebook page.

Oh.... I think we will miss him on the field too.

Re: Are we going to miss Fujita?

i too am very optimistic about stanley arnoux, has a nose for the ball stays in good position, plays coverage very well and is one of the fastest LB's that came out of the draft

arnoux and cassillas are very very fast for linebackers.....problem is they are also a bit small for linebacker

as for the original question.......leadership is hard to replace......hes big and strong and knows football

the browns picked up their defensive captain

Vey true with regards to leadership part, fujita was a good leader on D. Guess it will take time to replace that. Guess the size factor will either be solved in the draft, or gregg will pick the guy between casillas, arnoux or dunbar who he thinks will best help the D.

Re: Are we going to miss Fujita?

Fujita is atleast 20lbs heavier than both Arnoux and Casillas, he would never get run over and was a good tackler. Leadership like Canton says is hard to replace but I gt great hope for our young guys.

Without a doubt. We have no true SLB on the roster as of yet. A bunch of WLB does not make a SLB

Re: Are we going to miss Fujita?

The guys currently on the roster have backup/special teams ability. The good news is, Fujita wasn't a big playmaker himself. The Saints should be able to get a new starter in the first three rounds of the draft. Weatherspoon or Norwood would be great.
