On Sunday, fans were able to submit questions for DE Junior Galette.

Galette is entering his third season with the Saints after being signed as an undrafted free agent. In just two years, Galette has moved from mainly a special teams contributor to one of the teams most threatening pass rushers. The Haiti native who played college football at Division II. Stillman made major strides in his second season, recording 27 tackles (15 solo) and 4.5 sacks which placed him third on the team.

What do you think is the biggest difference in your game between last offseason and this offseason?

“I think I am a much more complete defensive end. I understand when to pass rush and when to keep the tempo down and stop the run. I am working on being a more complete defensive end as opposed to being a one-dimensional pass rusher. I think that is the major difference. I am learning more and more from Will Smith on how to stop the run better.”

When you are rushing the passer, what is going through your head on the way to the quarterback?

“That I have about 2.8 seconds to get there. If I don’t get there, the ball is most likely going to be released. I basically have a clock in my head. It goes to three to see if I can get there. If not, I try to make other moves and try to make a play. For the most part, there is a clock in my head that is there naturally and I know I have to get there as fast as possible.”

What are the biggest differences that you think the fans will notice in the new defensive scheme?

“I think the pressure that will be brought from the front four. We rarely rushed out of a four-man rush last year. Probably 85-90 percent of the time, we were in three-man rush. I think we will get a lot more quarterback sacks. I think that number will naturally go up with a four-man pass rush.”

Can't wait to see this beast in action! I've always liked him. Even when he was just getting pre season reps. I've always seen positive things in this kid. He never stops until the whistle blows and more than likely he's around the football! JUNYAH!!!!!

One thing I guess we can look forward to is an improved defense even if we probably won't win many games because Goodall raped us. I got a new license plate the other day and saw the Saints plates sitting there and almost bought one but then I told my self I am not going to give another dime to the NFL ever again. Yea I will go to Saints games, but anything that benefits the NFL as a whole I will never again waste my money on. On a side note the license plates are kind of tacky looking too. They could have done a better job of designing it.
