Saints Nation: Saints' Front Four Pass Rush Showing Massive Signs of Improvement

So far the Saints have done a very effective job getting pressure on the quarterback in preseason, and most encouraging is the fact that it's been most noticeable early in games with the starting units facing off against each other. 2009 was proof that the Saints are virtually unbeatable if they can get pressure on the quarterback, because the offense is a constant. So far the Saints have 4 sacks in 2 games and numerous pressures which has helped lead to four turnovers. Keep in mind that 3 of the 4 sacks have come from the Galette/Martez Wilson/Will Smith collaborations and those players haven't even gotten a half in together yet. Getting pressure with your front four is less about any specific scheme and more about the talent you have on the field. Early indications are having Galette/Wilson/Smith/Jordan as your front four on passing downs is enough talent to consistently give quarterbacks problems. The success they've had in small fractions of just 2 preseason games may suggest it's way to early to draw conclusions, but my feeling is it's amazing what statements have been made in such an incredibly small sample size. If these guys played a whole game with the pass rushing package it's a given the numbers would be much higher.
