A sincere apology to the Saints LBer corp!



Everyone that knows me can attest to the fact that I have been brutally critical about the Saints LBers for a couple of years now (with the exception of J. Vilma).  I've fealt that every since Fujita left for Browner pastures (and I mean that literally and figuratively) that it exposed the group and I've beat the crap out of them every since.  So to Shanle, Casillas, Dunbar, Herring and Wilson I say I'm sorry for putting all the blame on you.  In fact, you should share the blame with underwhelmingly, under performing and highly overrated defensive line.  To the linebacker group, you have the excuse of being late round and undrafted players.  The D Line doesn't have that excuse.  We have 3 1st rounders on the line (count em....Smith, Ellis and Jordan are all high paid 1st rounders) that have a combined 7 sacks on the season and 6 of them are by Will Smith who started off the season suspended! I fully believe that our blitz happy defensive coordinator (who does love to blitz) is now blitzing more than ever because you big boys just ain't getting the job done.  This is especially disturbing when you play with an offense that is statistically speaking amongst the best of all time. I'm not saying that you have to average 4 sacks a game, but get pressure some of the time without G. Williams sending our team sack leader from the secondary up the gut to cover your collective buts! When you add to the fact that we got big boys S. Rogers and A.Franklin to stuff the run (not help stuff the run) I'm even more upset.  Don't get me wrong because I still think we need an upgrade at the linebacker spots, but I don't think we should have to spend another damn dime on d-linemen.  Either play or take the high road and have a beer with Olin Kreutz!
