I feel my excitement for this season dwindling very, very quickly.

Our injury report nearly has more players than a 53 man roster.

Jim Mora may have been an idiot when it came to game planning, game management, putting all the stress on that terrific defense; but his Saints were a tough, mean lot...

Opposing teams were physically whooped after a 3+ hour engagement with the Saints...

And as you suggested, it is the conditioning...
Saints players dreaded Mora's training camps. I remember that the 1st camp was so brutal that some players suggested that it may have worn them out towards the end of the season, so he backed down the next year. But one thing's for sure... his teams were tough. Mora molded them in his Marine image.

That's accurate to what the players said, but, again, those teams were fast, tough, and no one wanted any part of the Saints...

After all Del Breaux has been through, the hard work, the recovery, hoping he has an All-Pro year!

I hope Breaux plays only a series or two. Those young rookies (Crawley, Harris, Pruitt, TommyLee) need as much playing time and evaluation as possible.

Well, it'll probably be heresy to some fans here, but with the depth of candidates we have available this year - I'd consider moving Keenan Lewis off the active roster (i.e. Injured-Reserve, Trade, Release) rather than tying up a roster spot on the presumption that he may return to previous form...

Had Rankins not been injured and poised for a likely return, Lewis would almost certainly be a candidate to IR and bring back later in a shortened season for the grizzled vet...
