Agreed. Seeing his draft status he would be expected to rush for 1000 every year. But it was the same thing with Bush.

I don't know what to think as it relates to Stephone.

Well this is what we know...

Anthony was a consensus first round pick among many established scouts...

He was in the running for Rookie of the Year and set rookie records at the position...

He made plays at the position that hadn't been made for the Saints in some time...

...this includes the NFL's first defensive return on a 2pt conversion...

Joe Vitt is the Linebackers coach...

The Saints have not drafted and developed a linebacker in Vitt's tenure...

One of the arguments in defense of Vitt was the Saints hadn't drafted a first or second round pick at the position...

The Saints still haven't developed a linebacker at the position...

Payton in midseason/lateseason interviews in response to Anthony inquiries that D.A. was spending alot of time with that unit...

These are things we know...

I see the Jets let go a ton of their coaching staff including D line/LB coach Pepper Johnson. I wonder if the Saints FO has any interest in adding any coaches to the defensive side of things? He has the hardware (SB rings) both as a player AND coach.

Surely Pepper could help our LB department.
