Keys to a Successful 2010 Season!


The regular season is less than 2 months away and I'm counting the days to see the Black n Gold on the field again!

It's hard to believe in less than a month will be our first Pre-Season game.  I'm looking forward to see our Vets out on the field as well as our Rookies.  And I'm also going to be looking to see how Rod Harper does versus last preseason.  He looked quite impressive.

Ok bottom line is: What are the keys to successful 2010 season?  What areas do we need to improve on?

I will mention some areas that need improvement so if I left anything out please let me know.  We do know everyone will be gunning for us since we're still the Superbowl Champs.  

 

The Running game: Was quite an improvement last season and helped balance our offense.   But I will say 3rd and short still needs improvement.  That was one of the key stats that killed us in 2008 but improved a little 2009.   Other teams make it look very simple on 3rd and short where we make it look difficult.  

 

Special Teams:  Was a drastic improvement on the kickoff returns last season with the help from speedster Courtney Roby.  Punt return coverage needs work so that Reggie will have that extra second or two to take it to the house.

Fullback Heath Evans: Was a huge addition to the O'line and protecting Drew Brees.  I can't remember when he got injured 4th or 5th game maybe?  Brees had so much time in the pocket he could have read a novel.  After Evans got injured, brees was pressured more but we adjusted very well at the end.   If only we had a healthy Heath Evans during the "Dallas Game".

 

Reggie Bush:  I hear  his knee is healthier as it's been since the 2006 season.  This is huge!  A 100% healthy Reggie adds fireworks to our offense. 

 

Tight Ends:  Jeremy Shockey.  When he's healthy he moves the chains and much more!  And I'm anxious to see how Jason Graham does this season.  David Thomas did well with Shockey. 

 

Stopping the run:  Should be a drastic improvement with some new additions. 

 

Cornerbacks:  Jabari Greer, Tracy Porter. When they're healthy!  Look out QB's!    Darren Sharper healthy.  Huge!

 

I think we will do great next season!  Please share your thoughts on what we need to work on to have a season like last season.    I'm ready for some Saints football!!
