We all have things we want to see the Saints improve on this season. Without question one thing the Saints must improve on is getting heat on the opposing teamís quarterback. And if the Saints are going to do a better job of applying pressure, they need their front four players to turn it up a notch!

When the Saints moved up in the top ten of the 2008 NFL Draft they got one of the best defensive linemen coming out of college in USCís Sedrick Ellis. Now Sedrick enters his fifth season in the National Football League and perhaps the biggest season of his career.

Ellis is entering the final year of his contract with the Saints, and with a big season Ellis could make big bucks next season. ďThis is a huge year for Sedrick. This is a money year. Being in the final year of his contract Sedrick needs to have a good season,Ē said WWL NFL Analyst Mike Detiller.

After the first day of practice, Ellis talked about rebounding this season.

ďIt wasnít my best year. It was a combination of things due to that like injury and scheme. Now we have a new scheme and Iím looking forward to the season,Ē Ellis said. Ellis had a big dropoff in production last season, as he had no quarterback sacks after registering six in 2010. Ellis could greatly benefit from the addition of new Saints Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
Ellis has fifty-five tackles last season with twenty-one solo stops. Sedrick is feeling his way out in the Black and Gold Defenseís new scheme but so far so good. ďI like the new scheme. Itís a true four man defense. Itís the kind of defense that I use to play in.Ē

Ellis is speaking of the defense he played in while he starred at USC for the Trojans. Ellis says that daily improvement and getting on the same page with his defensive teammates are the things that he is focused in or right now.

Great, contract year and he gets off his arse...

He should have a heavily incentive-laden contract the next time he's signed...

We get to see if it was the scheme or just Big "egg laying" Sed.

No he hasn't; this was a good lesson on when you don't get your guy (Dorsey) you should take a step back before overpaying for a quick fix for your disappointment...

In this situation it 6 one way half a dozen the other. Neither of these guys have lived up to expectations. But who would have none this when we drafted.

Could've, should've, would've... I reserve my judgment to when I actually see him play in the new scheme in games that count.

Sed was one of the first players that I wanted us to draft, that we actually did. I too have been completely disappointed in his production for a #8 overall draft pick. All I can say is talk is cheap Sed, and one year wonders don't make it in the NFL, so if and it's a very big IF, you do have a good year and it's in your contract year, don't expect a huge contract for having just one good year. You were expected to come into the league and be the next Shaun Rogers, Albert Haynesworth, Andominican(SP) Suh, but you didn't and you aren't.

I was happy to hear that we had signed Spaggs but after his remarks of wanting to get back to a HC position asap, my entheusiasm has dropped off considerably and fear we might only have him for this season so that's not going to help you either. What you need sir, is DESIRE, and I don't see that yet.

Agreed. No more PR hype machine, actions speak louder than words.
