Camp Confidential: New Orleans Saints

Brees knows this high-flying offense as well as anyone, including Payton. The Saints remain loaded at offensive skill positions. Thereís little doubt this team still is going to score a lot, and that alone will keep it competitive.

But Brees canít do everything by himself. Even before the word "bounty" started flying in March, the Saints knew they had to overhaul their defense. That became clear in last seasonís playoff loss to San Francisco. Thatís why defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo was hired. Predecessor Gregg Williams had a gambling philosophy, going all-out to produce turnovers. The negative side effect was that the Saints gave up too many big plays.

Spagnuolo brings a more balanced philosophy. Sure, he wants turnovers, but he also wants to be able to shut down offenses from time to time. A big theme of this camp is the installation of Spagnuoloís defense. Even though thatís not his side of the ball, Brees shows a lot of interest in the defense. Even in camp, the Saints are implementing game plans.

I did laugh at that part of the article though. Every now and then when the stars are aligned just right, it sure would be nice if we could shut someone down. It would definitely be a step in the right direction.
