Spencer is probably past his prime. None of the others have proven to be competent pass rushers in the NFL.

Galette has been our most consistent pass rusher the past 2 seasons. Heck in 2014 he was number 2 in the whole league in QB hurries in addition to his 10 sacks.

If he can't go full speed, it will be a big loss.

Re: Galette injured, could require surgery

While I absolutely hope that it doesn't turn out to be serious, I do feel much more comfortable with our depth and options at the position than I ever have. I get what you're saying commish and I can't disagree with you. But I do think Spencer can log some quality snaps as part of a rotation. He plays the run well, and even if he isn't a great pass rusher anymore I still believe he can make an impact in spot duty. I also believe that Kikaha is going to end up being a better player than most people expect. 40 times mean less and less the closer you get to the line. The guy has burst and quickness in short area, good power for his size, high motor, relentless, good hands, good moves... the list reads like a football fan's wet dream. Without the injuries, I think he would have been a sure 1st round pick. And personally, the injuries don't really worry me very much. Significant advances have been made in both the repair and the rehab of ACL tears, he appears to be walking proof of that.. I've gone off track a bit, so I guess what I'm trying to say is.. hoping for the best. It would hurt the rotation if he goes down. But I do think we'll be OK with the next men up.

Re: Galette injured, could require surgery

Not that I don't appreciate quarterback hurries, c'mon folks, it's not sacks, sack-forced fumbles...

We've got a fairly good stockpile of OLBs that, at the very least, should form a formidable rotation of fresh pass rushers...

Hell, this could be a blessing of sorts in disguise; to rotate and give teammates opportunities to step up...

Re: Galette injured, could require surgery

We can certainly use his talents, but his absence won't determine our defensive success or failure.

We have several new players to fill the pass rush only role.

Re: Galette injured, could require surgery

I will never understand how anyone could think that losing Galette for any amount of time would be ok. He's the only proven pass rusher that we have but he gets dumped on so much for some reason. People didn't like that he talked junk on Twitter but he at least showed up on Sunday's. Cameron Jordan is soft as hell and Tweets like a 14 year old girl but that never bothered anyone. Losing Galette will be seriously detrimental.

How many of them have some success in the NFL rushing the passer? Anthony Spencer... That's it. So we go from finally having some good depth to rotate in with Galette to being right back where we started: One pass rusher and nothing proven to back Spencer up.

Re: Galette injured, could require surgery

Rotoworld:
Doctors who have examined Saints OLB Junior Galette's injured pectoral are reportedly "split" on whether Galette needs surgery.
RapSheet reports it'll likely be "a week or so" before a determination is made because the final doctor who needs to examine Galette is currently on vacation. It sounds like Galette is dealing with at least a partial tear of his pectoral. If Galette needs surgery, he'll miss a huge chunk of the 2015 season. Jun 5 - 1:33 PM
