NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- It's a familiar problem for the New Orleans Saints -- a defensive lineman struggling to get his weight under control.

Former first-round draft pick Johnathan Sullivan has ballooned by about 35 pounds. It's something the Saints went through with Norman Hand and Grady Jackson before getting rid of them.


"He's got to get his weight down again," said Saints defensive coordinator Rick Venturi

In the end it will all come down to the simplest of things ..... The failure of the coaching staff to impress upon the players the need to keep themselves in shape in the off season .

Off season conditioning programs not working , staff not maintaining their players at a certain level , divide the blame how you want in the end the Head coach sets the tempo ....

I know, I heard Michael Lewis has ballooned up to 178 lbs.
Damm Haslet McCarthy, Loomis, and Benson. Get rid of them all.

That\'s a shame - he must be a person of poor character. I guess La\'Roi Glover was the only Saint DT to be of high character since Haslett got here - he\'s the only one that never got too fat.

Man, Haslett sure has bad luck. What is that now? 6 DTs who have struggled and failed to keep their weight in check? Man, he is just really unlucky - all these good guys who just happen to degenerate into chicken-wing-guzzling bums in a single year. Man, 6 \"freak\" coincidences all at the same position in 3 years. That\'s REALLY bad luck.

Ridiculous.

Maybe if Haz\'d stop wearin\' wing sauce as aftershave, we could eliminate this problem.

Actually guys, naked chicken wings aren\'t that fattening. Its the breaded kind like from Hooters that are really bad.
I think buffalo wings are kinda like Aaron Brooks performance, its really not that bad but the uninformed keep harping on it.

Aaron Brooks and chicken wings do seem to have about the same IQ.

Wait a sec....

I get it. Wing sauce is slimy.... slimy hands can\'t hold on to things... Aaron Brooks is wings... fingers slimy... can\'t grip ball.... fumbles...

And my dad said those college classes wouldn\'t pay off.

June 1, please hurry along and rescue us!
