Re: Bill Barnwell’s not a fan of Saints defensive trio

I'm always optimistic at this time of year. Training camp is when realization slowly creeps in as to just how good we are.........or aren't. I don't usually have a clue how we'll play until after the preseason is over. Even then it usually requires a couple of games into the season to see if we can come out strong or rally the troops together.

I think the addition of Dan Campbell and the rest of the new coaches will help us set the tone early. If we can get leads early in games then the defense can pin their ears back and rush the passer while they play catch up ball. The early part of our schedule looks tough but if we can beat the Raiders our first game we have the potential to go to the playoffs with \out needing a wild card spot.

Depends on whose opinion you value and trust: An organization that brought the worst historical NFL franchise to a SuperBowl, or some reporter.

Re: Bill Barnwell’s not a fan of Saints defensive trio

Maybe I'm dense but I don't understand this article. He says he's ranking the teams based on their best three defensive players but it's clearly weighted toward the overall defense's performance last season. What's the point of the trio concept then? Is he really saying that Jordan, Breaux and Laurinaitis are the second worst trio even though Jordan and Breaux are both performing at elite levels?? Real head scratcher here.

I hope expectations are not too high stat wise for our first round rookie. Just don't get knocked off the line of scrimmage every down and control the running lanes and it will be a huge step from last season.

Re: Bill Barnwell’s not a fan of Saints defensive trio

Currently in hold my breath mode. I am hopeful these guys can turn it around. I think the talent is there they just have to come together. It was painful the last few years watching the defense. You could just about predict what was coming next as there inability to stop anything was so glaringly obvious. Made all the teams we played look like super bowl contenders. It could have been much worst if not for the offense staying close in these games. It has got to be better or it will be more of the same this year.

Gotta earn it.

Right or wrong the worst D in the NFL is not going to win anyone individual praise.
