Which, in your opinion, helps the Saints secondary more next season: a veteran with a decent track record (acquired through free agency) or more skilled young guys (acquired through the draft)? - Mike R.
Definitely a veteran. There's always a learning curve for rookies, so unless they're some supreme talent, you can't expect them to become a significant contributor. Since you're asking about an immediate impact and next season in particular, a veteran is going to give the Saints a better shot at immediate improvement.
What was to blame more for the Saints abysmal defense last year? Scheme or personnel? - Tim P.
Both. Definitely both. I think the new scheme took some getting used to for the players and I think the players as a whole aren't the most talented in the league (not that there's anything wrong with that). I also think Steve Spagnuolo needed to get more familiar with the players he had and learn how best to use them.
Is Drew in decline? - Sylvain G.
Just as we are all getting older, Drew is always heading toward the inevitable end of his career.
Will we win the SB in 2013? - J. Ricky
There are so many factors and so many things that have to go right for a team to win a Super Bowl. The chances are pretty slim, but I like to think the Saints will be in the running. I certainly expect them to be much improved.
Will I find true love? - Canu U.
Reply hazy, try again.
We all know that you're a season ticket holder, Will you be attending the SB and who will you be pulling for? - Tac H.
Will the Superdome or Saints ever replace the worst PA announcer in the NFL (Jerry Romig)? - T. Mac
Probably not until Jerry retires (which he probably won't) or passes away. Jerry does make his fair share of mistakes but I can't call him the worst in the NFL because I've never heard every PA announcer. I believe he gets help identifying players from his daughter while in the booth. Regardless, Jerry is a fixture and a critical part of Saints culture. He's as crucial to the game day experience as the Who Dat chant.
