getting Rank and Breaux back will help our D. With that being said having Ellerbe get on the field would be a bonus. If he can get healthy, we were 6-2 in games he played in last year. i would like to see him on the field with Robinson.

I can't wait to see what our defense is like with Breaux, Ellerbe, and Rankins. If they help our defense out even a little bit which they most certainly should, we can easily finish with a winning record.

I cannot just accept that our defense will still be this bad when we get our guys back.

Breaux will let us roll coverages from his side of the field.

If Ellerbe ever plays, he and Robertson give us solid coverage in nickel sets. And Rankins with Fairley could be a pocket collapsing party.

No team had ever won the Super Bowl after losing its last three regular seasons games.
No team has ever went 16-0 in the regular season and won the Super Bowl either. I was hoping we would be the first to do that, but I will be just as happy if we are the first to win it after going 0-3.

It only hasnt been done until somebody dares to do it.

We always score a lot of points. We also give up way too many points. We need to get healthy on D and take the pressure off the offense.

The Saints defense is currently giving up 33.6 points per game. Which would set the NFL record for points allowed in season.

I'm willing to guess no team has had a winning record giving up 33.6 points per game.
