Hell, this could be a blessing of sorts in disguise; to rotate and give teammates opportunities to step up...
QB hurries are sometimes better than sacks. They many times result in BIG mistakes, like INTs. Lets not downgrade the effects of QB hurries. I wonder what effect being hurried had on Drew Brees last season? See what I mean?

#1 & #2 in sacks last year - Justin Houston & JJ Watt

That guy was a cancer both on and off the field...he was getting heavily shipped in the offseason..and its a reason he's getting phased out of 1st team practice and only limited to pass rush situations

Losing Galette will be seriously detrimental.
I agree. Losing Galette is not good, but he can't stop the run and won't set the edge. He's about as mature as a 2y/o. That is why he gets dumped on and rightly so. As for Jordan there's nothing soft about him. And just what the hell does that mean, 'Tweets like a 14 year old girl." I suppose you'd rather he be like Galette and tweet like a jackass.

Commish, did you see interceptions with this team last year?!?

They were about as common as sightings of Hillary Clinton's private email server...

Close only counts in handgrenades; sacks, finishing/terminating the offense play and sack/forced fumbles, all-around play - that's what we should be paying big contracts...

Not saying I'm glad the guy is hurt, but we've got plenty of guys who can step up and finish plays...

As well as set the edge...

And I bet we see it this season...

I'm glad we've got depth at that position to counter this.

Wasn't galette facing a suspension for the start of the season?

this is the huge impact his loss will create. Last year he was getting pressure but all QBs did was step up in the pocket and move to their left underneath his speed rush to the outside.

No pressure up the middle from the nose tackle. no pocket containment or collapse from the DE position. could not blitz LB because the secondary was getting toasted all over the field. worried about coverage everyone at the second level was a step or two behind in reacting. missed tackles? that a mental and a desire mistake in my book.

That was the issue. defense did not perform like a unit. it look like a three legged dog chasing its tale all year long. even when everyone was healthy

lets face facts. the blown drafts on defense have left the saints with a poor rotation of the front 7. this year it appears we might have a solid beginning to a rotation. more are needed. DE is a huge ????

Jr still is not a three down LB IMO but he is a great OLB for passing downs to force a QB up into the pocket were the DL is suppose to benefit in sacks from the hurries. he is on the field way to much and over used.

Real question now is Cam ready to step up and lead this DL as a veteran leader or not? He must take over Smith role. LB has enough veterans that i hope someone steps into that role back there. secondary is loaded with head cases so i feel that will not be an issue.

Cancer on and off the field? So there's no way his teammates would vote him to be a captain right?
