Only place I'm not sure about is the d-line, but with the addition of drafted linebackers and safeties in the Rob Ryan 3-4 I think there will be some new wrinkles.

Player performance at all positions on defense, except a few, was uninspired and poor in 2014, which is in stark contrast to 2013. This is a make or break year for Rob Ryan and his scheme in general in New Orleans. Defense repeating the uninspired play from last year will get Ryan canned.

That said, if Drew actually has time in the pocket with a beefed up o-line, defense will only need to be average.
Average but also good at creating turnovers.

Competition breeds excellence. Let the cream of the crop rise to the top. I had planned on not being excited about this team. However, we look really good and I can't help myself. The pieces are there and I believe that Payton will have this team playing at a high level again. I seriously doubt there will be any problems with motivation like we had last year.

Well I didn't plan on being excited and I am not.

After last off season all that hype and the new wrinkles that were added did nothing... repeat... NOTHING. So I will wait before I get excited until I see the improvement on the field.

1) no injuries
2) leave your ego at home
3) suspend/cut locker room cancer
4) WIN

sounds simple

Re: My thoughts heading to Camp

Wouldn't say we're overloaded on offensive or defensive line, but we definitely have something to work with now...

Totally agree that defensive line is a little too worrisome for my taste right now...

If the trades and cuts don't grab players attention, then things get even more drastic...

If Griffin wasn't our guy, Grayson had better because Drew is at the end...

The f-en defense has GOT to be better. That's a given. If it is not substantially better, we have another season like last year.
