Re: 2017 New Orleans Saints Training Camp


Brandon Coleman has been impressive to start camp. He got behind the defense once again to catch a deep post for a touchdown. However, Brees would have been sacked by Cam Jordan on the play. In a later drill, Coleman took a quick slant from Chase Daniel and raced 60-plus yards to the house.

Take Five: Other Observations
  • Veteran rest days for Zach Strief and Adrian Peterson. Manti Teo also had the day off as the team continues to monitor his reps stemming from last years injury.
  • Im not sure whats going on with reserve center Jack Allen. Hes really struggled with bad snaps in every single practice of camp.
  • Ginn put a ridiculous fake on Williams during individual drills. The problem was Ginn bobbled the pass which allowed Williams to recover and knock the ball away. Ginn has always had inconsistent hands; theyve shown up through these first few days of camp.
  • Damian Swann and DeVante Harris both had sacks off corner blitzes.
  • Wil Lutz hit a 53-yard field goal.

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Yep, end of last season he came on; he's still needs some maturation and discipline, but he's definitely got the physical ability to be good...

Hell, he is sure showing up this year. Dare I say that Thomas and Snead are the only locks? Seems like Fuller is beating out Ginn at this point. Can Fuller contribute on special teams?

Read Duncan said we are not getting much disruption and pressure minus Cam Jordan, only day 4 but that's not going to get it done.
I always say by week 4 you have what you are going to have. If a team doesn't have an identity by then, they won't have much of one. By week four you should know your teams potential.
I think that's when we will get a good read as to weather or not Payton will be back.

No, we haven't had a good rec. out of backfield since sproles. Our line has been lacking for a few years. They started to get a little better last year because Jhari had a solid season, but (I have been saying this for awhile) this could be the best offense we have fielded since '11

Just because we put up a ton of crap time yards or Drew is able to make the oline look better than they are, we haven't had the type of offense this group has the potential to be since '11

The offense always makes it work. That's the point. I'm not worried about that. Our defense is very much a work in progress still.

Oh yeah, certainly the more worrisome side of the ball.
