Saints’ DE Galette disrupting force
METAIRIE — If second-year defensive end Junior Galette continues his disruptive ways, he could be promoted to a senior partner in the well-established New Orleans Saints’ pass-rush rotation.

A huge fan favorite of Who Dat Nation, Galette is tied with teammate Roman Harper for fifth in the NFL with 21/2 sacks after bagging a pair in the Saints’ 30-13 victory against the Chicago Bears on Sunday in the Superdome.

Galette twice sacked quarterback Jay Cutler in the fourth quarter when the Bears were making a futile attempt to cut into the final 17-point margin.

The Saints registered six sacks against the Bears, equaling their highest output in nearly three years (San Francisco, Game 4, 2008). In addition, the Saints racked up 10 quarterback hits, forcing Cutler to play with his head on a swivel for much of the game.

A similar pressure-packed effort from the Saints (1-1) could be pivotal Sunday when they host the undefeated Houston Texans (2-0) and quarterback Matt Schaub, who has been sacked four times and owns a 100.4 passer rating.

Kickoff is set for noon, commemorating the fifth anniversary of the re-opening of the Superdome on Sept. 25, 2006, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

“(Galette) provides edge speed, especially when you’re playing at home, and he can get a jump on the snap, so that plays to his advantage,’’ Saints coach Sean Payton said. “He’s someone who’s focused in on his job, and he’s worked hard to get the snaps that he’s getting right now within our system.
