Couldn't agree more
 
"The addition of safety Kenny Vaccaro has been critical. Not only is the first-round pick rangy and athletic, but the rookie also has the versatility to play man-to-man in the slot. So does former first-round cornerback Malcolm Jenkins. This has made the Saints virtually immune to matchup problems inside. Offenses can no longer use motion or flex tight ends to stress the interior of this defense. Consequently, linebackers Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorneóboth of whom look faster than ever beforeócan be help-defenders against the pass instead of being assigned frequent solo coverage responsibilities. Additionally, the Saints donít have to play a nickel corner, so third safety Roman Harper (though out for this game with a knee injury) can stay on the field as a full-time defender in the box, where he thrives."

I wasn't against the Saints drafting KV or hiring Rob Ryan; I didn't think we would see results this soon!

Our defense is surprising the heck out of me. Albeit a pleasant surprise.

When we drafted KV i went noo we need a pass rusher!!

I think alot of us were wrong in many instances, just have to trust their decisions, the ones made last offseason have paid off massively

I liked the Vaccaro pick from the start, but I was under the assumption that Jenkins or Harper were on their way out. I was dead wrong about that one. The way they are being utilized is perfect. They are all playing lights out. The entire defense is for that matter. It all boils down to the secondary being able to be in good position when there is a consistent pass rush.

I've got you beat, I'm ashamed to say.

I was disappointed in 2006 when we hired Payton and not Kubiak. WRONG!!!!

I was allright with us drafting Vaccaro but I really wanted Mingo. Both guys has played really good so far so I am happy either way.

I see your Kubiak over Payton, and I raise you a "I wanted the Saints to draft Matt Leinart instead of signing an injured Drew Brees".
