During the Mickey Loomis-Sean Payton regime, the New Orleans Saints have always broken their offseason wish list into categories of “wants,” “needs” and “musts.”

This year, Payton said, the Saints have two or three “musts.”

At least he is showing interest in these positions being filled first.

Guess he doesn't see inside Linebacker as a must then, which means we'll have to put up with seeing Hawthorne and Lofton miss a huge amount of tackles.

Lofton was top 5 in the league in tackles.

No doubt, but he also missed a ton, not nearly as many as hawthorne or vaccaro though.

0 sacks and 0 ints really concerns me though.

I don't believe him because he normally treats the media (at least NOLA media) like a clump of dog **** on the bottom of your shoe. Why would he give away team secrets to people he hates?

Maybe thats what he wants you to think. Jk we'll probably take care of some of that through FA, then get linebackers, a DT, etc in the draft. I feel this will be a good off season.

Re: SP calls 3 positions a "must" this offseason.

We have 3 or 4 guys who can play ILB.

Just because he doesn't list them in his top 3 doesn't mean he won't upgrade.

BTW: A pass rusher can be a LB as well.

I's say pass rusher is a must as well. We put very little pressure on opposing QB's.

I'm not sure anyone would argue that the three he mentioned aren't necessary upgrades this offseason.
