Demario Davis
This has been talked about in various ways recently, but Davis is the best free agent pickup in the Saints’ recent history, and depending on his time with the team, one of the best ever. I love this guy. I am and have been firmly planted in the “we miss Mark” camp, but it’s very obvious that Davis is a leader in that locker room. He’s also been playing really excellent football.

One of my favorite things about watching his play is his closing speed. There was a play today where Jameis tried to get the (nearside on tv) corner. Davis was spying him in man. Ultimately, Jameis gained like 3 yards and ran out of bounds, but Davis’ closing speed kept it from being a 15 yard gain. He’s also a complete chaos causer in the backfield and plays pretty well in coverage. I really wish he would’ve gotten that pick today.

Here’s his postgame locker room video: LINK

The dude’s response to the question about his 800th tackle is great. Seems like a hard guy not to like and I’m really glad that the locker room seems to have picked up where it left off last year largely because of guys like this. At the end of his interview, one of the reporters asked him about the locker room culture and his response is awesome.

Anyway, just thought this deserved a post. Great game today. Most complete game the team has played all year. Too many positives for one post.

re: Demario Davis
I’m convinced if he played for a bigger market team he’d be considered a top 3 LB in the league

His Seattle pregame speech about hunting still gets me jacked.

Not sure what I loved more

Him and Drew collabing on bringing back the Win chant

Or him busting out the kamehamaha wave midgame

Well Vilma was a trade. :lol

I honestly think Demario Davis is the best linebacker in the SP era. And I love Vilma.

re: Demario Davis
You really think he’s questioning that??? That’s why he said recent history. We signed Brees 13 years ago.

Has much to do with that d-line playing in front of him too.
