“The only thing left ... is just winning,” Galette said Friday, two days before the Saints host the Green Bay Packers (5-2) on Sunday night. “Until we do that, I won’t be satisfied completely and internally.”

Galette put himself squarely under a metaphorical microscope when he signed a contract extension that could keep him with the Saints through 2019. The deal is worth up to $41.5 million, $23 million of which were guaranteed — and outside observers naturally went on high alert for any indication of Galette toning down the intensity once he had been paid.

Galette, though, stayed true to the form that earned him the extension. On the 188 snaps he has rushed the quarterback, according to Pro Football Focus, he has registered a team-best 24 pressures — six QB hits, 14 hurries and the four sacks.

Kind of puts things in perspective when both Von Miller and Dwight Freeney have above 8 sacks on the season, double the number that our leader in sacks has.

If we win against the Packers Galette and Jordan will be a major part of the reason.

JR doesnt have the supporting cast those two have.

JR has been the one bright spot on the d-line this season. Jordan, Hicks and Jenkins have been huge let-downs. In fact, if a poll was put up on who is the most disappointing player so far I would bet it's hands down going to be Jordan.

Re: Until the Saints start winning, surging Junior Galette won’t find complete satisfaction

This QB pressure thing I see mentioned is BS to me. Or at least it can be biased on how someone sees pressure. Did it disrupt a play resulting in loss of play, negative yard or the QB picking his butt up of the ground is the only thing that matters to me. When I see teams get to a QB AND HIT him early it makes a difference. Even if a QB gets the ball of and complete that pass if he takes a hit and goes to the ground it adds up over the game. These "pressure" stats are like I said kind of BS to me.

Agree on the support argument. Disagree on most disappointing. Jordan is being double and tripled constantly. IMO it's Hicks who is disappearing.

Surging?!? Seriously?!?

His sacks were on stunts where teammates took on his blockers...

He's not earned one sack beating a man in front of him...

Loomis is a freaking idiot for extending his contract...

Disagree, however if Jordan gets an extension without improving the rest of the year then I would take your side.

Jordan IMO has worked his way out of a major payday, at this point if he is asking for big money we just need to let him walk. For those of you that think I am a hater of Cam just look at my avatar lol.
