I don't see any reason for them to cut ties with Smith at this point in time, and they don't seem to either since they worked out a restructure with him in order to make his deal more cap friendly.

And I agree with you Mitch on the principle, but I do see DT as the bigger need and then CB, because as we all know - that interior pressure can make things a lot easier for the DBs in general.
I'm curious to see what Smith can do or not do anymore myself?? I get to see this season if it was him or just the system.

DT should be our top priority in the draft. Safety would be nice but we've got two decent starters and depth behind both. We lost our edge on defense somewhat when we lost two corners one of them being Porter. That is where we are thin.

I hope you all do get rid of Fresh Prince. That guy always scared the **** outta me when he lined up vs. the Bucs.

He has been my pick for the last few yrs as the NFL's dirtiest player. He's good, but he is dirty.

For any of you to deny that just shows your homerism.

OK, but can you show us some proof of that?

Not really, but as a Buc fan who watches the Saints twice a year, I have seen that guy do various things that were definitely dirty.

Maybe I am being a homer. Then again, I may be out of bounds as Sapp was a pretty nasty player and I am sure plenty Saints' fans felt that way.

Im curious to see whether we already have Will replacement on staff. Is Cam Jorden swiss cheese or did we just forget about him. I loved his pressure at times this season, and remember he was late to training camp last season and I think that kinda stunted his growth. You should see a better Cam this season. There's one candidate. I like many Saints fans around here want Romeus in that DE spot to see what he can do!!!! I also think a converted Martez to DE spot is not out the realm of possibility. The new numbers at LB, and a healthy Casillas would make it hard for Tez to get majority snaps at the LB positions but at DE he could be real special.

A healthy Casillas is hard to come by and if we can morph Tez into lb/de hybrid that would be best. Just look at Ware.. that boys sack numbers are always high and we all know we could use that kinda productivity.
