Thats hard work by Loomis. I don't think luck had anything to do with it.

We were unlucky when Goodell decided to make us an example for 31 other teams that do the same damn thing we do.

We were unlucky in that the story broke during the time where there is virtually ZERO NFL news for writers and talking heads to over-react about. If this story broke during week four of the 2012 season, it gets about 2 hours of attention then disappears forever.

I was more than glad to see us get this guy and the lb's, the middle in particular, Spags knows the problem areas and looks to be taking care of them quickly and with pretty good upgrades, we may not have Payton on the sidelines this year but I got a real good feeling that our D is going to be bad a$$ this year.

I think getting Spags to come to NOLA was the biggest off-season move the Saints made or will make this year, and I seriously think that having him as the DC was one key variable behind these good players wanting to sign with the Saints and seemingly for less money than they could've gotten elsewhere.

Loomis has done a great job once again, and I can hardly wait to see what they'll do in the draft.

I agree!! Now if we can get that Coastal Carolina CB and a DT to groom the rest can be all Offense.

I feel like this season is playing right into the Saints hands. All the media and Gooddell did was hype the team and the entire Saints fan base up for this season. I feel sorry for opposing teams this year. Each of these guys is going to be out to prove something. Especially the ones that have been on the team since winning the Superbowl. I'm calling it again, this years superbowl is going to be The Broncos VS. The Saints. Who DAt!!!
