Saints very quietly building a sound defense

I shouldn't have been on ESPN(The Nationally Accredited BleacherReport) so guess that was my fault for reading their "blog" doing my hourly internet browse on Saints news when I noticed that Pat Yasinskas did one of his typical digs at the Saints and our defense. I know this guy is a lazy idiot so what he says doesn't bother me...however it got me thinking about our D and how we would look this year.

Veteran Leadership
DE Will Smith 2004 All Rookie/2006 Pro Bowl/2009 Honorable Mention All Pro

LB Jonathan Vilma 2004 DROY/2005 Pro Bowl/2009 Pro Bowl/2010 Pro Bowl

SS Roman Harper 2009 Pro Bowl/2010 Pro Bowl


Probowl Caliber
DE Cameron Jordan 8 Sacks/2012
LB Curtis Lofton 123 Combined Tackles/82 solo/2012
CB Jabari Greer good corners dont put up stats usually

Solid Pros
DT Brodrick Bunkley had more Sacks and Tackles in 2012 than Sederick Ellis has in 2011 and 2012 combined
LB David Hawthorne 2009-2011 had over 100 total tackles all three years
CB Keenan Lewis 2nd most pass deflections in the NFL in 2012

Young Promising Talent
DT John Jenkins
DE Akiem Hicks
LB Martez Wilson
LB Junior Galette
LB Victor Butler
CB Corey White
S Kenny Vacarro

Could be something if they put it all together
CB Patrick Robinson
FS Malcom Jenkins

Quality Backups
DT Tyrunn Walker
DT Tom Johnson
DE Greg Romeus
DE Barraka Atkins
DE Kenyon Coleman
LB Ramon Humber
FS Isa Abdul-Quddus

Roster Hopefuls
DT Isaako Aaitui
DE/LB Rufus Johnson
LB Kevin Reddick
LB Chase Thomas
LB Ray Shipman

re: Saints very quietly building a sound defense
just looking at it i think our D will be top 20...if Malcom Jenkins and Patrick Robinson step up...this defense could be scary good.

I'll believe it when I see it, but until then I think all criticism is fair. Last year's squad was pretty tough to watch.

At first I felt that way...then I realized I had Cam Newton, Jamaal Charles, Alfred Morris, Doug Martin, and several other Saint killers on my fantasy team...it helped me cope as I won my league.

I'm being completely serious when I say that nobody cares about your FF league.

I agree I hate it when saints fans are ok when their fantasy football players tear our d a new one.

re: Saints very quietly building a sound defense
how else are you suppose to cope with a historically awful defense

a suspended head coach, LB coach, GM

an 0-4 start

alcohol...drugs...

You're the one who brought up FF. Who was your QB? Do you even PPR bro?

re: Saints very quietly building a sound defense
What gets me is when people assume the defense is gonna suck because it sucked last year. Look at every teams defensive statistics year by year and, with the exception of a few teams consistently in the top 5, almost every team fluctuates considerably from one year to the next.

re: Saints very quietly building a sound defense
The most important thing is the players. The second most important thing is using the players to their strengths, which we didn't do last year.

We've brought in competition at nearly every position on defense, outside of Lofton and Jordan's spot. Those are really the only two starters from last year I consider safe to keep their jobs.

We MIGHT have been good.
Unfortunately, Vaccaro is another Jenkins/ Robinson.
