Re: Trey Hendrickson out for Saints on Sunday

Hendrickson has been our best DE this year; this hurts...

But if he's hurt, he's not playing at the level that he has been so either way he'd be out for the game...

Get well, Trey; your teammates have got to step and give you an opportunity in the next stage of the tournament...

Shame, but it won't make a huge difference. It was more important to get Brown back to the interior and the Saints are very healthy there now with really good rotation.

How do you know that?

Did coaches tell you Hendrickson offers no better performance than any other DE?

Seems like he is the starter for a reason and displaced a big time 1st round pick to be the guy.

Cam Jordan is our best all round DE. That's why he attracts the double teams. So, basically, the offensive line coaches across the league told me Jordan is the best DE on the team. I'll guarantee you if you asked any player or coach on the Saints they'd say the same thing.

Snap counts also signify who's best. Jordan has been in for 78.01% of defensive snaps. Hendrickson is second for DE's at 53.35%.

Cam Jordan is older and has been injured this year; he was struggling against backup offensive linemen during the regular season; he's not been the elite defensive end he's been the past three seasons...

And he still remains the one drawing double teams and taking part in 50% more snaps than the next closest DE.

He wasn't drawing double teams this year like he was in past seasons; he struggled more this season, especially vs backup offensive linemen...

He may not be drawing as many double teams, but he is definitely still drawing more than any other exterior lineman on our team. All said and done, whether you like it or not, JP, Cam Jordan is still our best DE. Is he as good as he's been in the past? No. But he's still the best all round DE on the team.

Re: Trey Hendrickson out for Saints on Sunday

Henrickson's strength is the pass rush. That is clear. That's why he's in there on passing downs. Davenport is a better run defender and that's why he's in there more often in those situations. Jordan is in there in most all situations. He is by far more versatile.

I disagree

Cam Jordan is easily the worst DE on the team. Granderson should be starting there.
