At an early point in practice Friday, the New Orleans Saints' defensive backs were turned into receivers.

As an assistant coach launched wobbly rainbows down a sideline, Saints safeties and cornerbacks ran perpendicular to the line and tried to catch the ball while keeping both feet in bounds.

An indication the Saints are putting renewed emphasis on turnovers? The Saints are tied for 24th in the NFL in the turnover margin at minus-5, and only Pittsburgh has had fewer than the Saints' five interceptions this season. On several occasions, Saints defenders have dropped passes in their hands, precisely the sort of letdown the secondary stresses it cannot have.

NOW?!? WTH?!?

Need to practice tackling, blocking, pass rush, and a nice to talk from Brees how everyone needs to be accountable and play with passion...

We got real superstars in Brees, Graham, Sproles, Greer who are winning us games while the rest of them seem to be showing up for the check...

They should have been spending some time with Curtis Johnson for the last 3 years.

My guess is they've always practiced catching the ball, they're probably just spending more time on it that they normally have.

The defenses INT problems are a direct result of having Drew Brees on the team.

The Saints defense doesn't get to practice INTs much cause Brees doesn't throw any.
