The issue in pass coverage i am talking about is that freaking slant up the seem teams run all day on us. That is LB responsibility. look at the top LB corps in the NFL and they defend that play well.

this years Carolina and san fran took that play away and got their INT against it. I do not care what offense you run that is a key play in every passing attack.

As for the TE and RB thank the CB and S for most of the plays there.

as a unit the saints play well and always did before the Spaz year. But the saints are small at OLB and speed is an issue over all. Plus non of the are getting any younger. draft now for the future and improve the rotation on the field and this defense has the ability to repeat these numbers again for years to come.

Re: New Orleans Saints positional analysis: linebackers

The real question I have for the linebackers is the same one I have for the whole defense...... Should we move forward with a 3-4 scheme when this 4-2-5 scheme was so highly successful. Oh and bring back that 3 safety package, and the amoeba looking package where everybody is standing up.... Lol those were some awesome twists......
