New Orleans Saints: Improve team speed on defense.
The Saints should take a page out of the Falcons' team-building approach and invest in speed. This idea, cribbed from Adam West of the Saints Talk Podcast, should start at the linebacker position. The Saints' defense quietly took a turn toward respectable under coordinator Dennis Allen in the second half of the season, but it's still a slow, talent-poor front seven. The linebackers aren't versatile enough to play on the Superdome's fast track and the pass rush doesn't have enough NFL-quality players. Stealing from Atlanta isn't all bad: Just look at the Ying Yang Twins.

It was a long night. Let's be clear here please. You are not referring to Meth? You are talking about actually physical speed?
Hopefully not the speed that got Vaccaro suspended

We've been needing more speed on defense for years. We especially need speed in the LB corp, but please don't sacrifice football intelligence for athleticsm (Martez Wilson).

don't forget Sedrick Hodge. With Courtney Watson roaming the middle, Sedrick should be able to fly to the ball:hihi:
