Pro Football Talk says Saints' defense "not particularly talented"

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Respectable at times? You mean the way that Dallas didn't convert a 3rd down all night, when they have been torching defenses for weeks...

Re: Pro Football Talk says Saints' defense "not particularly talented"

Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne were the best LB's on the market when we got them. Haralson was a beast for SF.

Cam Jordan was a 1st round pick. So was Vacarro and Jenkins. Harper was a 2nd. Bunkley was considered the best 3-4 NT in the league in Denver.

Jabari Greer is extremely under the radar. Keenan Lewis was the top CB on the market besides Nnamdi. Corey White will be a star.

No homework was done.

Watson's not going to play. Check the replays, he was drooling on the ground, which is NOT a good sign. I'm worried about his return, but more than that, worried for him.

Greer got exposed for the backfield peeker he is. whenever he gets burned it's because he's thinking pick 6 rather than defend.

Re: Pro Football Talk says Saints' defense "not particularly talented"

no the saints are not overly talented. pro bowlers do not fill the defensive ranks, what we have is a solid unit of players. same group from last year really. so we are seeing the old saints defense once again after a year in limbo.

no individual flash for the broadcasters to talk about. just a unit

Greer had a inconsistent night

Made a couple pass breakups, then got burned a couple times, dropped an easy pick 6

Even though I love how our D has played, greer has become the weakness in our secondary after being the strength for so many years, corey white will replace him

Corey white and keenan are the future at CB for us

Re: Pro Football Talk says Saints' defense "not particularly talented"

How does a national publication allow such obviously partial drivel to be presented on their site.

The gist of this article is, This Cowboy _______ is a good player too bad so and so was hurt, the Saints suck. The Cowboys are a really good team, too bad ________ was hurt. The Saints only look like a good team, how about that ________ guy for the Cowboys? He's really good except that because of ________ he looked bad. The Saints suck.

Good job PFT!
