For quite a while, Saints defensive end Junior Galette was just a Who Dat's dream, but he is rapidly becoming an opponent's nightmare. Nearing the end of his second season in the NFL, Galette is finding his groove at the perfect time, with a home playoff game down the road and the defense as a whole playing better each week.

His 4.5 sacks this season trail only defensive end Will Smith for disruptive production on the Saints' defensive line, and no sooner did he get his first start against Atlanta last Monday night he promptly stormed into the Falcons' backfield and twice hurried quarterback Matt Ryan.

The fans have called Galette "Beast" since he arrived in 2010 as an undrafted free agent and showed preseason flashes of the sort of edge speed rush the Saints seemed to lack. He was active for four games last season, but played mostly on special teams.

Perfect time to come on strong Junior. He could be our X factor coming into the playoffs.

I can't wait to see Junior and Greg Romeus line up togather. I'm thinking they would make a great tandam. Jordon is going to have to pick his game up. I would love to see all 3 suceed. Payton and Williams must have thought Romeus will be good to go for next year. If he's healthy between the 3 we should be set for years to come.

I'm expecting Romeus to be the best of them. He was freakishly good in college.

The article says his mom is on Saints forums a lot. I wonder if she frequents this particular forum?
