He will be like Damien Lewis was for us. Frank Kearse will be our beast.

Not to mention Fua jumped offsides more than any player I remember. That dude needs a lot of work.

I feel really good about this year.

Rivera knows what he is doing when it comes to defense. Let's get out of the John Fox mentality, and get on board. We have a really good LB squad, maybe one of the best in the league. We have a lot of competition at DB. surely Nakamura or Reggie Smith can help at safety, and they both will make an impact on Special Teams along with our new returner Adams.

We got Cam, Smitty, and TRIPLE Trouble! We got Gross, Kalil, Silatolu, and the rest of the boys that kept Cam healthy last year.

We get to see if Gettis can get on board with Cam, and we know that LaFell is improving. Greg Olson says "Hi", and maybe we can get Shock on good contract if he doesnt sign somewhere else.

And for a cherry on top, we get The Saints struggling with their problems. This team is going to the playoffs.

-hehe, I meant to post this in a different thread, but whatever, its cool...

Agreed. He's old, injury prone, and wasn't much more than serviceable even when healthy. He can be a useful part of the rotation, but Hurney screwed up big by putting us in a position where we had to rely on him to prevent us from starting two rookies at DT.

Ron is not injury prone, he's played every game in his career until he missed all last season.

I agree with the OP the guy is OK, but he is not gonna be disruptive or help our pass-rush much. I expect him to help in the run game a bit, but that's it.

edwards played in 5 straight full season before he was injured with us, I don't think he is injury prone. He is a starter - not a great one, but a starter. His job is to take up blocks, freeing up lanes for linebackers. He does this well enough... it is true he is nothing special, but we do not need 'special' at DT, we need strong and consistent.

I would have loved to have gotten a great DT in this draft but there just wasn't one they wanted enough to draft over Kuechly. Probably true that any DT they drafted wouldn't have been an immediate-impact kinda guy anyway =|

I guess we'll see if the huddle is right or if hurney is right once the season gets going.

Can you stop pretending that you know better than the coaches and staff?
