Maybe not, he had 13 in 2009 and has averaged 6 since. Eight isn't a stretch at all, but its not all that impressive either.

Re: Smith finding familiar roles in new Saints defense

If Smith gets 8, Junior and Tes get 10 to 12 each(maybe more) our players on the 3 man front get 3-4 each our IBL get 7-8 in total and our secondary gets a total of 8 depending on how often they blitz Harper and V, we could end up looking good. I think those # could be low. I believe the front 3 might do a lot more.

1. Will Smith will reap the benefits of having Jordan/Hicks next to him.
2. Monkey's fly out my ass.

Vegas odds are 50/50.

I would love 8 out of him. I can only see 4 at best. I would love to be wrong though.

You missed a part.... That is if you have had previous primate residence. If you are a first time landlord the banana may require freezing first.
