Re: 3 Game Exposure - C/NT/MLB

Those positions needed to be corrected 2 years ago, now there are G issues to go along with them and probably a RT positin also. NT, 2 lb's , C,and G need to be adressed as a priority in the draft. That leaves 2 more draft picks while some say CB I would pick up a vet, in FA and go RT in the draft and a K with a booming leg for tight games.

We screwed up not keeping Tom Johnson. According to PFF... Defensive Tackle Tom Johnson is the only defensive/nose tackle in the Top 10 in both Run Stop Percentage and Pass Rush Productivity. His Run Stop Percentage of 10.8% is eighth-best while his Pass Rushing Productivity of 9.1 is eighth-best.

1) cramming it down your throat with the running game at will...exactly how many shut-down corners do you need to draft to stop this from happening?
need at least two. since Greer went down the saints have done nothing to address this issue. SJB? If the kid can not see the field now i do not see him stepping into the starter role next year. Yes another solid man cover CB would go a long way to helping against the rush. you can turn those two lose and use the remaining players to stop the run. Right now you need 3 solid CB min on the team and right now all i see is 2 and 2 long term projects. one dance partner for Lewis would be huge for this defense

this i agree with. depth stinks. not getting a solid rotation in the middle of a 34 defense is well the stupidest thing the saints did this year on the DL. You gotta rotate your NT all game long or you are doomed. Jenkins off the bench even for a play of two in an active rotation would have been better than Bunkely out there playing 90% of the snaps. That was just Rob cutting his own nose off out of some stupid spit issue of his own personal making.

LB? heck been screaming for those for year. Thank god for Harilson or things would be really ugly.
