"Not everything is always going to be perfect but some of the same things continue to show up. We need to be better in some situations, yet in many cases we were driving down the field, scoring points. That’s our job. The longer we stay on the field, the more rested our defense can be for the next series." -Drew Brees

Saints are NFL's Best Team

Dallas is good. The Chiefs are good. The Colts are excellent. The Broncos are great. The Saints are better than all of them.

I'll have what Butler's having...

"Yeah, they were the worst defense," Butler said. "But you look at the players, we don't have the worst defensive players. These are guys who are Super Bowl champions, Pro Bowls at one point. These are great teammates. These are great football players. "You get a guy like Rob, you get a guy like Keenan Lewis and you add him to the secondary, you get a guy like me who can come in and help guys pick up this defense, and you're going to see a hell of a defense. That's what I'm expecting. A hell of a defense. "We've already got the players to be the No. 1 defense. You get a defensive coordinator in there, a guy who's going to be compassionate and convey that passion to the players, I wouldn't be surprised if we were the No. 1 defense in all categories next year."

Tiny bit #Tebow news: he'd like to go where he can sit, learn behind great QB & coach. New Orleans would be perfect, for example.

Jason Cole via Twitter


The New Orleans defense was so consistently miserable last year that a player like Vaccaro can have a substantial impact as a rookie simply by virtue of his ability to hold down his part of the fort, allowing DC Rob Ryan to scheme around other deficiencies and hope for the emergence of some semblance of DL play from younger Saints. Though it's unlikely that Vaccaro can turn the Saints D around by himself, he's an important part of the infrastructure for building out a real defense. New Orleans fans will look back at this draft and be happy with this selection.
