New Orleans Saints: What Who Dat Fans Can Expect from Junior Galette in 2012

The New Orleans Saints are headed into the 2012 NFL offseason with a new defensive coordinator in Steve Spagnuolo, and I am extremely excited to see what he can do with defensive end Junior Galette.

Galette was an undrafted free agent in 2010, and the Saints picked him up during training camp. Throughout the 2010 preseason, Galette became a fan favorite and solidified his place on the Saints' 53-man roster.

He did not see much playing time in 2010, but last year, Galette began to see the field on a consistent basis.

In 2011, Galette played in every one of the Saints' games, and racked up 4.5 sacks in his first full year in the NFL. Galette played mostly as a third-down pass-rusher, and did very well in that role throughout the season.

He may, in fact, be the best pure pass-rusher on the team. Defensive ends Will Smith and Cameron Jordan are both very good at stopping the run, and Smith has shown glimpses of greatness in pressuring the quarterback in previous seasons.

However, Galette seems to get near the opposing passer every time he is on the field.

Spag-nola should be one of the best things to ever happen to Junior.

I agree. I think we haven't even seen Jr's full potential. I personally am looking forward to seeing more of him this season.

If Spags' track record of success with DE's carries over with Junior this is going to be a very true statement, He will be impressed with junior's quickness and want to coach him up big time.

The thing that annoys me is that GW refused to play him in 2010 at all, Junior was better than most of players on the D Line so he could have made more of an impact.
Plus he didn't really do anything for him between 2010 and 2011, Spags will right the ship

With the exception of Smith we are young at DE, if we can get 2 DT's to push the pocket our young DE's might become sack machines. I for one would love it. We need to adress MLB or OLB and I really feel we could be on to something in New Orleans.

I perdict by mid season if that Romeus is heality that him and Junior will be the starters for the Saints.

I completely agree.

He'll be a starter before the year's up.

Junior is one of the main reasons why I really want Loomis to seek every possible way to get rid of Will Smith, IMO Junior and Tez are the future play makers of this defense

JR should have been starting opposite Will Smith, not knocking Cam but it is the truth. If you watch him rush the passer no one is better on the current roster (yes including Smith). Should Start from day 1 opposite Romeus.

Just curious, is the missing D in your username intentional?
