Good player, but not great.

The reason we see this type of article is that for the past decade we've had trouble finding "good" players along the D-line.

Most good defenses would not be affected by a Nick Fairley loss. Its the crappy defenses that would take a step back.

And We really no longer have a crappy defense.

Re: How the Saints can overcome the loss of Nick Fairley

You win and lose in the trenches. This definitely hampers the team more than some folks want to admit. Rankins will be a stud eventually while Onyamata and Davison are both unknowns that went in the middle rounds because they were so raw. I have a hard time placing a lot of faith in projects and I'm worried that we don't have a demanding physical presence with Fairley out.

On paper we don't have a crappy defense, remains to be seen if they live up to their potential.
