3. New Orleans Saints

Forget the off-the-field problems -- the Saints have been weakened by significant free-agency losses and salary-cap challenges, and they have a proud quarterback who is incensed that he has the franchise tag instead of a long-term contract. They lost their best offensive lineman, guard Carl Nicks, to Tampa Bay, but they replaced him with a quality player, Ben Grubbs from Baltimore. They re-signed receiver Marques Colston but lost Robert Meachem to San Diego. Their defensive leader, cornerback Tracy Porter, has moved on to Denver. The Saints signed two solid defensive players in Curtis Lofton and Brodrick Bunkley, but in the wake of the bounty scandal, New Orleans likely will look at some defensive suspensions in 2012. This is not an offseason the Saints will remember fondly.

Haters goin' hate!

Sadly, I can't say we have a defensive leader. It's probably a tie between Harper and Vilma with a quiet, off-radar honorable mention to Smith or Greer. They just don't seem to be sitting at the cool kids table.

Two of the greastest post season picks of all time...maybe. Defensive leader..more like decent corner, that's as far as it should go.

If it weren't for the interceptions in the NFCC game & the Super Bowl, Porter signing with Denver wouldn't have gotten more than a line in the NFL transaction report.

My God do they even have an editor? If so, does he/she make any effort at all to keep up with what goes on? This is uber-ignorant...borderline stupid...

Somebody should hack that damn site and redirect it right here.
