re: What are Saints fan's opinion of Lofton so far? (Posted on 10/3/12 at 8:38 am to Patrick O Rly)
I've been satisfied with Lofton. The overall D has been so poor he still has an incomplete grade from me. He came back pretty quick from an ankle tweak too. I give points for both manning up and playing through injuries as well as some slack in performance in those times. Colston the first 2-3 weeks with plantar fasciitis the same thing.

It has about come to this. Galette is doing okay. On track for 8 sacks with the limited reps so far is good. I've been disappointed by the few reps for Tez Wilson. There's still hope for him too. If a significant turnaround isn't happening soon maybe they can peddle Smith for a late pick. The trade deadline was extended to the Tuesday after Week 10. We might see more rent a player trades similar to MLB with that.
I've only ever heard good things about DL coach Bill Johnson. These same woes have persisted for so long I'm wondering if a different leader there might help.
