For me it's:
LBers
DLine
Oline

IMO Scott Shanle should not be on an NFL team. He has the smarts and is a good locker room guy, but when he is on the field it's like everything is in slow motion for him, my sister could outrun him with her feet tied together. I think we could move Vilma to WLB, JoLonn to MLB and Martez to SLB. Then draft a MLB this season or pick on up in FA.

Franklin and Big Baby have been pretty invisible this year. I would like for us to target a big run stuffing DT who can eat up blockers. That will help Ellis get off his blocks and make plays on the QB, like he is best at. Cam has done a pretty decent job sealing off the edge, he improves every week, and Smith is playing pretty well too. Our d-line is one DT away from being great.

Our OLine is so inconsistent, it is tough to see what is going wrong. Maybe it's a problem with our coaching staff, maybe they can't get them fired up? In the NFL guys shouldn't need someone to fire them up, but you never know. Would it be better to put Bushrod at RT and get a LT in FA? Charlie Brown hasn't shown much, and he is on IR right now.

I Oline looked shaky for weeks before they finally got exposed. They will get exposed again, and I truly fear for Brees life when we play the Giants and teams like SF in the playoffs with physical defenses. O-line HAS to be first because if Brees goes down we are ****ed. Period.

Good stuff, although Franklin has had several good games mixed in with his mediocre ones all season and had graded out well over the last several games.

Jordan is progressing faster than I thought he would. He looks like a potential stud in the making at LDE. A complete player.

Martez played MLB in College, and was rated the number one MLB in last years draft. He's an option at MLB as well as SLB. With his speed he can probably play all 3.

I'd like to see what that combo of Wilson/Dunbar/Casillas could do.

Saints need to cut back on penalties and turnovers.
Yes, that is how the game works with both teams making these, but I just always think Saints sometimes get too many. They make too many. That can make the difference between and getting a W and a L all the time.

Wilson, if he progresses, should be the MLB next season; Vilma has a degenerative condition that is more than likely the cause of his decline play or lack thereof; he's a good football player - he's just on the backside of his career now...

Casillas really plays with a good motor - but he lacks discipline - he blows assignments - but I'd still rather have a high motor guy at linebacker...

I think it's time Kookoo Dunbar play or move on - and I think he could play at the other OLB spot and contribute...

We definitely needed, still need moves at the Linebacker position - but the D line has got to get it right up front first...
