Don't forget that linebackers are needed to stuff the run, and WLB is still a need.

It's not so much the RB it's the O-line and the type of scheme they run. I believe the Saints will struggle against the drive blocking teams like San Diego and Minnesota. Coincidentally I think we'll get gutted by LT and Peterson. Other than those two I'm not worried. Saints front seven will be able to contend with most of the teams on the schedule, lack of AFC North opponents will help.

I think the LB corp is going to hold up this year and we will go 10-6; If we get Dorsey, 12-4.:D

How many backup QBs had career games against us last season? Our run defense was fine last year and it's not because teams only "needed" to run the ball 8x/game against us.

That's because our unathletic LBs were cheating up to the line and our S were spying on the run all the time. That causes the run to look fine and pass to suffer. :rant:

Oh and that's because our front 7 couldn't get to any QBs! :covermyeyes:

And assuming Gary Gibbs is still our DC, it's likely they'll continue to cheat up, or at least be enabled to (thanks to a marked improvement at MLB and a lesser improvement wherever we stick Morgan). We have an injured starting CB and no fewer than four corners best suited for extended packages....!

we really need to get a DT they will open up the holes which will get our linebackers back there to get the QB... so if they are pressured they will either get sacked or make a throw under pressure which can make our CBs look good and then a DT would help stop the run in the middle also which would be great so i am hoping we can get a good DT!!
