Improving 'D'? Strange Saints days, indeed
 
Improving 'D'? Strange Saints days, indeed

Anymore, it's a strange day when New Orleans has both its starting quarterback and running back on the sidelines — and still can call the controlled Black and Gold scrimmage a success.

Strange day, indeed.

See, the Saints have inverted the old “fleur de loser� cliché, turning trite (We Love the ’90s!) complaints about a team that can’t score — despite its immoveable defense — on its ear.

That's old school. No, the 21st century version of New Orleans has plenty of offensive firepower on its style sheet. This is a group that has set team records for most points, most touchdowns and most touchdown passes since 2000.

But the defense has needed an operating-system upgrade over the past few seasons.

I think we are going to make some other teams very unhappy this year. I know it\'s only training camp, but since we have one of the best O-Lines in the NFL and our D-Line is eating them up, don\'t you think they are much improved. I do.
