De La Puenta has done just fine. Again.......NO THANK YOU! What we need to address is re-signing our free agents & picking up DEFENSIVE players, not another center.

See above. Possibly draft a back-up center in the later rounds.

Remember when he snapped the ball early; possibly in the playoffs against the Lions?

Shouldn't the Saints take every opportunity to upgrade any position they can?

We need to retain the talent we have before we even think about upgrading any positions and besides Puenta has done just fine. He has been solid the whole season, center is the least of concern on the upgrade list...

DLP has done great stepping in out of nowhere. No need to upgrade.

No need to upgrade on center, unless they lose Nicks, in which case they might need to look for a better center, because I think that a lot of the success DLP had was due to him playing between the two best guards in the league.

We don't need an upgrade over DLP, he played great last season to say he took over around week 7.
Trade or release the dead weight (sed ellis, scott shanle etc) Resign Brees, nicks and i hope we can have colston too.

We need to get rid of the defensive players that aren't performing and replace them with ones who will.
