The supporters of Kenny Vaccaro would like to thank the Saints organization for picking a sure, affordable difference maker for the secondary in 2013. The Saints pass defense allowed almost anyone to chunk it 300 yards on us almost every game. Will Keenan Lewis solve this problem alone?? NO!
I don't care about how many INTs Vaccaro had in college. His presence could create opportunities for other players to make plays. Maybe more sacks. Or INTs by the players around him, just like Sharper's presence. Yes, Sharper was responsible for quite a few turnovers in 2009 (at safety), but players around him also made plays. A quality safety does so much for a defense. Is there a coincidence that Sharper's big season led us to a championship? Is it a shocker that guys like Ed Reed, Troy Polamalu, and Rodney Harrison own a nice amount of titles the last few years? Quality safety play is so important in today's NFL. We just picked the best in the draft.
So THANK YOU Saints. You made a move to finally get a difference maker at the safety position. The experiment of hoping a top 15 pick at CB and making him a playmaker safety has failed. This time, you got the right guy.
Congratulations Saints fans. Your future NFC pro bowl safety has arrived.
