He seemed to be running with a much clearer picture of where he was
and who was around him and finishing falling forward rather than
being driven backwards. Year two maturity, and YES, that is scary.

The right side of the O-line with Topou and Jones looked alright for the 2nd string, and Tennant wasn't bad either as the 2nd string center.

Still, he's "only" a punter...

Last year's man crush was Tom Johnson. This year I can see it's Marcel Jones.

Don't get me wrong, Tom is still my sweetheart, but I guess I'm hoping that Jones will work out for the sake of the O-line's continuity going forward.

And speaking of Tom, he was in on that one sack with Martez, and he did look quite mobile with the limited reps he had, so I'm hoping and praying that he stays injury free this preseason and can fight for a starting job at DT.

I'm envisioning the trio of Bunkley, Johnson and Hicks providing a mobile corps of DTs for the Saints in the coming years - I'm still not convinced by Ellis 4.0 - and those guys will be key for Spags front 4 schemes' success.

I hope Roby doesn't make it. I'm rooting for Morgan and, if he's healthy, Arrington.

Cadet could push Ivory off the team.

Why would you hope any particular one wouldn't make it? As long as the best man for the job does, thats all I care about.

I don't want him to do poorly. I want younger players to be better men.
