so it was the defenses fault brooks would make some of the most bone head plays you\'ll ever see.

Face it there needs to be a change at qb.
quit going off of stats if that was the case peyton manning would be working on his 2nd or 3rd super bowl win.

The guy doesn\'t have good sense. It was jeff blakes team that went to the playoffs not brooks.

Brooks an MVP in your dreams :P

I for one are always optimistic in the offseason. That usually ends up being the best time for Saints fans. However I think its the Saints attitude that has people becoming more optimistic. They are at least attempting to address team needs via free agency instead of their normal head in the sand approach and telling everyone they are satisfied with the players at that position. No they have not gotten a linebacker yet -- but the fact that they are openly trying to get one shows promise. Speaking for myself the road to recovery is admitting there is a problem. This offseason the Saints management finally have admitted there is a problem.

I\'m about the same as last year. We have made some good moves and we\'re building a great roster except for ONE area. Linebacker. I can even live without picking up a run stuffing DT, but with only two real LB\'s on this team it leaves us with a hole that can easily be expoited by any team with a decent OC.
DE-Great if Howard stays, Good if traded

DT-Average, assuming someone steps up between Sullivan, Green, Whitehead, Kenny Smith, Leisle, Bryant (I think he re-signed). Add another DT in the draft, and another year under Pease and I think we\'ll be decent as is.

LB-Horrible. Watson, Bockwoldt, Allen are OK and very promising, but no one else would start on any team in the league and most wouldn\'t make a roster.

DC-OK, especially if its true that Venturi is now just the puppet DC.

On offense,
O-line-OK, Good if Holland and Stinchcomb step up another notch.
WR-Good, especially if Horn re-signs.
OC-OK. I think Sheppard will be an upgrade over Mr. Predictability. And the veteran assistants we brought in should improve our grossly underachieving running game.

Everything looks like a promising 2005 campaign, except for one unit.

But since this team had a pretty solid unit going into 2004 and severely underachieved, I\'m a bit apprehensive about proclaiming them the next Patriots.
