We have young guys and veterans down.
I think we have met our quota.
It would be nice if this was the end, but not likely.
Jordan getting back up to speed, revitalized Fairley with others...
I'm still hoping for vast improvements on defense.
My fingers and toes are crossed.
I think our defense will almost definitely vastly improved. It's a shame that in spite of that our offense will have to play better than Last year if we want it to translate into more wins.

He's in for surgery asap and then it's a 6-8 week recovery time.

Not promising anything, but T.O had the same injury in 2004 and came back 6 weeks later recording 144 yards in a superbowl.

Re: Sheldon Rankins Injured

Well, the Saints shored up the interior of the line with not one but two picks, so don't forget David Onyemata...

You also have C.J. Wilson who wasn't going to make this extreme overnight makeover of the interior defensive line...

Fairley is just going to play 20% more snaps and you'll have Onyemata and C.J. Wilson to rotate at the 3-tech...

This is a great opportunity for Onyemata to develop faster and for us to find evaluate if we need another 3-tech to really improve the D...

Don't forget Wilson had the same role on the Packers Superbowl Winning team and we're looking at him now as our 3rd string DT...

Fairley, Davison & Jenkins will be very capable of taking care of business while Rankins is out.

Saints have solid depth at the position.

With Ellerbe and Laurinatis out there it's not a loss the Saints can't handle. But, it's a big loss. If he can come back healthy for atleast half the season, it will be plus.

Davison/Nick Fairley combo is by far better than what we had in 2015.

After that it is a lot hopes and prayers (Onyemata and C.J. Wilson) or the same old same old for the saints (Jenkins).

Fingers crossed and placing my faith in DA
