Saints News: 5.17.08

Not too much going on today.

If you wanted your 2008 NFC South evaluation from a newspaper in Kansas City then you are in luck my friend, because CSC has got it. The Kansas City Star gives their opinion on our division. Here is what they said about us.

New Orleans Saints

WHO’S NEW: LB Jonathan Vilma (NY Jets), LB Dan Morgan (Carolina), DE Bobby McCray (Jacksonville), CB Randall Gay (New England), CB Aaron Glenn (Jacksonville), QB Mark Brunell (Washington) OL Matt Lehr (Tampa Bay).

WHO’S GONE: C Jeff Faine (Tampa Bay), K Olindo Mare (Seattle).

BEST DRAFT PICKS: DT Sedrick Ellis will start. CB Tracy Porter has a chance to start or play nickel. K Taylor Mehlhaff will compete with Martin Gramatica.

KEY QUESTIONS: Will RB Deuce McAllister recover from surgeries on both knees? Will RB Reggie Bush ever live up to the hype? Can LB Jonathan Vilma, LB Dan Morgan and CB Mike McKenzie come back strong from injuries?

GAMES TO WATCH: Week one vs. Tampa Bay will set the tone in the South. … The Saints “host” San Diego in London on Oct. 26. That will be a long flight home for the loser.

Here  is the strength of schedule rating for every team in 2008 via KFFL. Good news for Saints fans. We have the 5th easiest schedule in the league. What about the undefeated New England Patriots, easily the best team in the league last year? Oh, they get the easiest schedule in the league. What? That doesn't make sense to you?

Black and Gold had an interview with Indiana cornerbacks coach Joe Palcic about Tracy Porter. Hmmmm...sounds familiar. Check it out though, its a little different.

Check back later today. I will go where no Saints fan  has gone before.
