In the midst of this season’s defensive renaissance, Saints outside linebacker Junior Galette may have figured out what his group couldn’t tackle in the recent past.

Galette said this week that it was endless hunger, the will to continue to want to improve. Take for example, his specialty: sacking quarterbacks.

Once you get better at your craft, earning local recognition — even some NFL-wide kudos — the goal is to find something else to get better at ... then even better ... and keep going until it’s time to collect online shout-outs from all the offensive linemen thrilled to read your retirement tweet.

Doesn’t matter if you’re a former undrafted rookie free agent like Galette or a 13th-year pro like San Francisco defensive tackle Justin Smith, who already has made it to four Pro Bowls.

Offenses morph yearly — sometimes weekly — offering new challenges for those determined to slow them.

Those are the kind of guys Galette said he’s surrounded by as the Saints (3-0) prepare to host the Miami Dolphins (3-0) on Monday night in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Young guys that, like him, were good enough to make the Saints roster out of training camp but were not projected as starters. Then injuries hit the defense like chicken pox in the first grade, sparking a youth movement.

The competition starts among themselves, like schoolboys racing from pole to pole, seeing who can dig up the biggest earthworm.

“There’s no days off,” said Galette, who this season has two sacks and seven tackles. He’s also over nagging injuries that ruined his 2012 campaign. “It’s like we get to the film room and we’re like, ‘I got off the ball faster than you.’ (That’s) the competitive nature I think we lacked in past years, to be able to take no days off.”

The result?

The Saints have enjoyed a pass rush with minimum risk. No blitzers needed from the secondary. No — Galette and his guys got this.

In other words, as Saints coaches emphasized this week with pieces of cheese around team headquarters, “Don’t take the cheese.”

That's funny

Re: Junior Galette shows Saints’ hunger for sacks

Man, when Bunkley comes back our four man front will be nearly unstoppable. We don't have to blitz now as it is. Aren't we supposed to be running a three man front? I spent a lot of time this off season studying it and I want to see it some time soon.

I'm going to offer Galette $500 if he takes out.... oh, well, nevermind.
