Offseason To-Do List Gets Longer

WR upgrades are not needed. That's kind of a silly thing to say. Factor in that we have a developing TE that is going to be a beast, and we're set. Also, as someone already stated, AA should see more action, hopefully. We desperately need a pass rush, and help on special teams. More than anything though, after watching that game yesterday, we need a practice. Our tackling and ball awareness on defense was absolutely horrible. We lost to quite possibly the worst team to ever make the playoffs. There are no excuses.

A couple DE beasts like Julius Peppers - Javon Kearse-types would have people like Mike Vick, Tom Brady, and ugh... Matt Hasselhoff shhitting their pants.

The Saints already have the WR's in place, problem was the down field passing game was mostly non-existent throughout the year. Get the blocking schemes improved, get the running game, and the down field passing game will be back. Teams had no issues getting pressure on Brees, so it was easy to rush four and drop a couple guys deep to protect against the deep passing game. Much improvement is needed in the running game, must get guys who can stay healthy!!!

Elite rush DE to bookend Smith. Another quality body in the DT spot. 2 OLB's with athleticism pass rush ability. Possible upgrade at either offensive tackle spot. Find some guys who are great special teamers. One of the biggest things we missed and I haven't seen it said yet is Courtney Roby!! Other than that we're good.

We already have an elite WR. We have two of them: Marques Colston and Adrian Arrington, if Sean Payton would ever allow him to get out there and play!
