As long as he's on the field as much as possible. I'm happy to see Johnson getting some first team reps also. I think he can be more than solid as a 3-4 end.

Just heard on Training Camp Live on the NFLNetwork; that the defense forced 3 takeaways in the first 8 plays in this mornings practice.

Harper said the players are reacting instead of thinking

I don't like for our defense to be forcing takeaways in practice....that means Drew is ready to throw 19 more picks.....

Difference between a takeaway and an interception.
Neither "Interception" or "Drew
Brees" was never mentioned in that conversation.


Settle down... Lol

First non-padded practice of training camp, and Drew is destined for 19 picks? You're such a pessimist

I really am when it comes to football. I expect the worse, so if the results are good I'm pleasantly surprised.

But the point I must stress, put me at corner and the Saints have a top 5 defense easy.
