We'll see this year for sure, hope he makes me eat my words!!!
Yeah I agree with this, Jenkins needs to step his game up and produce. Hopefully the new system will put him in position to make the plays, but he has to catch the ball when it comes near to him, those dropped picks drive me mad.
He has to show he was worthy, the dude is a physical beast and can hit like a train but we need players that have some instincts at FS aswell.
If Jenkins doesn't produce in Spags new D, don't be shocked if Quddus gets put in there, that dude can play

We're going to have to do a lot of tweaking with this team to keep them Playoff Viable, Brees seems to want a new Contract "RIGHT NOW" rather than later and we have Colston and Nicks to also deal with, im sure we're not keeping both if neither of them which is going to break some hearts.

I am not starting any crap with anyone....

buuuut..

Roman Harper is our only consistant pass rusher. I don't know what happened to the days of LB's getting to the QB and driving him into the soil but the Saints are carring the flag for the movement. I really hope Spags changes this concept of thinking/coaching.

I look at the Giants on "D" and see 4 DE's with the WLB and SLB coming after the QB like they are wolves and the QB is covered in raw meat!

I love HARD HITTING, HITTING THE QB so HARD he turns into the letter "C", QB having to take a timeout after a hit; DEFENSES!

So just kinda take it easy on Harper.

Lance Moore can't play TE anymore than Harper can play LB.
Agree with Danno here.
