Re: Victor Butler has tore his ACL

This is the one position where the Saints can most easily overcome a loss like this. From all accounts Will Smith is looking very good in the role of an OLB and Martez Wilson and Junior Gallette both have the ability to shine in this defense. The late pickup of Rufus Johnson in this year's draft may start paying dividends immediately. He has the potential to be a monster.

This is all a part of the game of football. VChill out and enjoy.

Re: Victor Butler has tore his ACL

The hacks are already calling this a "huge blow" to our revamped D. (And you think B&G has a drama issue.) Have to ask, how big is this really?

Re: Victor Butler has tore his ACL

I don't even see this as a big loss. The guy has potential but his production doesn't even match what Galette or Wilson have done on the pass rush.

There is Galette, Wilson, Will Smith, three rookies and I'm sure even a couple more players who can step into that role. IMO the pass rushing stars on this D were going to have to be Galette and Wilson anyway.

4-6 month recovery time, he will be back and ready to go after the BYE week.

Until then we have plenty of depth.
