The days of our offense dominating everyone is in the past. Our offense is good enough for us to get us where we want to go but if we dont get this defense better, we are gonna keep watching the post season from the couch.
I agree D wins championships, I always will believe that. I also agree that our O (with a player or 2 I will add ) is good enough. We could even become a managed O and score enough with Brees to do lots of damage(possible ground and pound) to make a serios run.

Oh! Is he going to be the new Saints GM?

Loomis is at least making moves, why are people complaining that he's trying to fix the glaring weaknesses on our team?

Whilst Ireland's draft record with the dolphins was kind of hit and miss, its still miles better than ours!

I don't trust his judgement. That's just me.

Re: Dennis Allen Rejoins Saints

We wanted change. We got it.

I'm guessing Payton and Loomis understand what changes were needed better than us.

Re: Dennis Allen Rejoins Saints

I think it's a mistake to compare drafts at other teams unless you know the circumstance surrounding picks.

Bottom line; Payton has worked with Ireland and is obviously comfortable with his abilities. Again, he won't be the GM, he'll be a talent evaluator - something he excels at.

I believe that drafting a C and G in the draft is needed, swing Lelito to G, keep Grubbs, Lelito, Armstead, and Stief with a stud C to start and the drafted G /T to groom. Not replacing to many at once on the front line is key. As far as RB there are some really good FA even if Ingram leaves(I hope we keep him) and a slew of quality RB.'s that can be had in the late, late rounds, some will even go undrafted. This is an excellant year for RB. in the draft but If we would go ground and pound we will need a bruiser type.
