I try to be positive about him, but he just brings out the pessimist in me. I hope you're right and it does turn around.

Re: What to watch when Saints training camp opens

Seriously speaking on Stephone ... I really think playing him at SLB was a mistake last season. His ability is suited for MIKE & if he plays else where, he'll likely remain out of position. Sometimes I wonder that those Clemson teams were so loaded defensively, the coaches were able to mask deficiencies with SA. On paper, he now has better talent around him in New Orleans to succeed.

Nolan will give him a fair shake & it's my hope that a different teacher in the class/film study will help Anthony grasp it all.

Here's a question: if our LB's don't improve under Mike Nolan will anyone say maybe it wasn't Joe Vitt's fault?

If we can get good D line play, the linebackers job will be so much more manageable. I'll be surprised if you don't see significant improvement from the current roster of LB's under the tutelage of Mike Nolan.

Let's go.

No, on both counts.

Re: What to watch when Saints training camp opens

My eyes will be on our secondary's health this camp, especially our corners...we need Breaux/Lattimore/PJ on the field 100% of our 6 division games against the NFC South's big receivers & TEs. It'll also help with run containment knowing these 3 are covering downfield.
