Yep, Jackson may be done in the NFL period. What a great addition that was, doesn't suit up once, and guy failed his third drug test......

A lot of whispers about this, but since the tragedy that happened to 21, we have not been able to find any continuity in the Defensive backfield.

I read this online at their paper and some of their fans are absolutely delusional- saying things like our front seven is going to destroy them. You donít need a good secondary; you only need a good front seven. I am not sure how starting a safety 4rth on the depth chart can be considered not to have a effect. It may be able to be masked against most teams, but I am not sure their starters were going to stop us so I canít imagine this improves the situation. Anyone know the talent of the Dejon Gomes?

BTW- I for one am actually glad Jackson is suspended. I think he probably would have been their best option at safety
I don't think anybody thinks that stopping the Saints is something you can do at the drop of a hat. What we are hoping for is that the pressure on the sides from Rak and Kerrigan can force Brees to make decisions quicker than he would like and possibly lead to a turnover or two. The front 7 honestly is the most talented for us in well over a decade, and very deep.

Good luck with that... Have you watched much tape on Brees?
He spends the off season working on his reaction time.
Reaction Ball Game With Drew Brees | STACK

His read/process/deliver (quickest delivery) time is one of the fastest in the league.

People say that a lot, on the internet, but it's really not entirely true.

The only times that rookie or unknown "nobody" quarterbacks looked really good against the Gregg Williams Saints D, was when the QB on the field wasn't the same QB that the team prepared for during the week (Seattle playoffs, Titans game), or else when the QB was changed mid-season and there wasn't a lot of film on them (Arizona, Cleveland and the Rams all made a major QB change only a week or two before the game, for example).

When the QB on the field is who the Saints are expecting to be there, rookie quarterbacks tend to look okay but not great, if the Saints were prepared for them. Josh Freeman (38-7), Cam's first game against the Saints, and Matt Stafford in the '09 opener for example. Stafford played okay that day, he made some nice plays, but the game was still a total blowout. That's kind of what I see happening here on Sunday, I see this as being very similar to that Detroit opener in '09.
