Re: Draft will be critical for the future of the Saints

Im sorry
"The Saints have enough talent to sneak out the weak NFC South"

We nearly won it last year with a team falling apart. If things come together and the defense is half as good as two years. back the players are good enough to get the later stages of the playoffs

Re: Draft will be critical for the future of the Saints

We need more "team first" guys. Role players. Guys who WANT to tackle, who WANT to work hard.

That seemed to be missing last year.

Don't expect the NFC South to be a cake walk though. First year coaches tend to inject life into an organization right away so don't be surprised if Atlanta rips off 10 wins next season. Carolina is always just dangerous enough and Lovie's defense is starting to take shape.

Re: Draft will be critical for the future of the Saints

The Bucs have won the offseasin and been the talking heads pick to win the division for the past 3/4 years and by and large been terrible.

They have had Verner/Revis/David/McCoy and Takib at various times in the past 3 years and generally stunk. Lovie Smith is vastly overrated

this is what went into 2009's team: Ayldele, Hargrove, Bell, Will Smith, even da Rapist ..... all played with a chip on their shoulder and with passion. Something that has been missing since

Browner

a healthy Byrd

If we get a healthy Spencer thats a upgrade.



On offense we aren't done. But you gotta love adding Spiller, & Unger



Still have a long way before opening of the season.

You almost have to look at Byrd as a new acquisition also, since he missed all of camp last year and most of the year. Pumped to see how we put together the roster and how we come out the gate defensively. I hope we can get a good DLman and a couple killer ILBs in the draft. Some combo of Anthony, Kendricks, Perryman, or McKinney would be nice...Maybe Shelton or Brown early also...

If they land Perryman, they will have to peel me off the roof of my living room with a rake

Re: Draft will be critical for the future of the Saints

The defense isn't filled with spring chickens............I believe that we are one of the oldest NFL teams. We will get younger this draft and have the youth to inject into the team chemistry. We have brought in several veterans with leadership skills and the locker room problems should be a thing of the past. We should have a good mix of young and old to keep things properly balanced on and off the field. I'm excited(cautiously optimistic) about the possibilities on both sides of the ball and that is before the draft starts.
