A motto the Saints constantly preach to one another is, “Get off your spot.”

As defensive line coach Bill Johnson explains, it means team members should not be content with being the same players they were at this time last year.

It applies to all on the roster, but Johnson concedes it’s especially apt for second-year defensive linemen John Jenkins and Glenn Foster, raw rookies in 2013 who still managed to have moments of brilliance.

“When you get down to it, they were helpers,” Johnson said recently. “(They are) good young prospects that need to get better.”

Better with their alignment, better with their stance, better with how they strike opposing offensive linemen to get around them.

“I want them to go back like they don’t know a thing and strip down their fundamentals,” Johnson said. “That’s what we’re doing — taking it like an old truck, stripping it down and building it back up to see if we can get back to a stronger, better bunch of guys.”

Glenn Foster only had 4 sacks in 3 college seasons? He had 3 last year in a reserve role. The guy is pretty damn good when he's healthy.

Jenkins is just a beast in the making.

I'm not sure it was fair of Johnson to call Jenkins a "helper". When we were down to warm bodies Jenkins was out there a lot, and producing, too

Hicks, Jordan, Jenkins, Junior...lot of talent up front

When bunkley got hurt, jenkins played a huge role in our success on defense, like scottf said he was out there a whole lot and played very well

Things seem to go so much smoother once you get a year in under your belt. Your confidence soars and you grow leaps and bounds when you are not second guessing your self.
