Some new Saints info.

At this time of year ANY news is hard to come by and I hesitated before posting this article because this guy isn't in the main stream media, and it's from another saints site. It's from SR.com. It contains some information I think is of interest.

Mods: If you want to take this off the board, it's no problem with me and if there's any problems let me know.

When I asked Jim Haslett about the problems the offense had at critical times last year communicating from the sideline to the huddle, he told me they are working on a new “clockââ ‚¬? this year, attempting to get to the line of scrimmage with twenty seconds on the play clock rather than eighteen. They will have to break the huddle quicker because the plan is to feature a one back offense that requires Aaron to read the safeties and run through the “check with meâ€? signals prior to the snap. Boo Williams and Ernie Conwell will see a lot of tandem action this year without a fullback routinely in the lineup. And all of this will be directed by Mile McCarthy from the press box rather than the sidelines! Haslett told me that McCarthy will be in the booth during the preseason with the expectation that the offense will be better called from above.

The defense will revert back to a “70â₠¬â„¢sâ€? style with narrower gaps to help contain the run. The focus of the offseason was getting better against the run. Haslett believes the addition of Bryan Young and the development of Johnathan Sullivan, Willie Whitehead and Kenny Smith will make for an improved defensive interior.

Overall, Haslett claims that this is the most competitive training camp since his arrival with only Deuce and Joe Horn assured of a starting role. The point being, in my opinion, that the team can withstand injuries a lot better than in years past. I think this is probably true at every position but cornerback, where we will need three viable starters for each and every game to defend the spread offense that has become the predominant formation across the league.

Yeah, I noticed that too. That\'s a load of bull, but this guy has always been credible. I think he just wrote something up real quick and posted it. He said it was just a quick review and he was going to do a full report later. He just returned from the caravan in Mobile, Alabama. He does some kind of radio show.

Anyway, take it for what it\'s worth.

I was listening when he said that. Good re-cap. Most of it was on our local show here on 105.5

They also said Fakhir Brown has improved tremendously and looks better than any CB in camp so far.

Please let this be true. I\'d love for Brown to be the next Freddy T.

So, if it\'s true that Mike Mac is moving to the booth, is it an improvement? Will he be allowed/ capable of a tad bit more creativity from up there?
