will smith is our defensive captain and rightfully so as hes the longest tenured defender on our team and still one of the better DEs in the league

vilma and greer are probably next behind harper and will smith then id have to go with ellis and shanle

i want you guys to realize something about our defensive line......we blitz more than any other team in the league and because of that, we face more max protects than any other team in the league. our pressures are up but our sacks will never be at the top of the league because teams know exactly what we are going to do every play.

because of the guys in our secondary like harper, jenkins, greer, porter, and robinson we are able to send so many guys at the QB. not only does it help us in coverage but it helps us dictate what kind of play the offense has to make
All true ... it also shows we could use better defensive personnel.

harper got trucked by brandon jacobs and you guys are acting like he should be embarrassed

brandon jacobs could truck an elephant over.....how is it embarrassing at all especially considering he was already in the endzone?

Greer is a shutdown corner, vilma is good when healthy, Harper is our best playmaker. He forces fumbles, and his hits make receivers think twice when their coming over the middle.

Apparently if a TE catches 1 pass on Harper, that qualifies as owned.

I like that the Saints have a WR like Henderson available but I haven't heard much from him this year. I'm missing the comparison.
Fans love to hate on both of these players without good reason. Both players know how to play the game, play at a high level and don't complain about their roll.

Devery showed up in the beginning of the season when we were banged up and he had an outstanding game in the Superbowl.

What? You don't like Henderson or something?
