Answering your Saints questions
LSU offensive coordinator Steve Kragthorpe has fond memories of coaching with New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams | NOLA.com
"Gregg was great," Kragthorpe said during his introductory press conference at LSU Monday. "What a phenomenal person and one heck of a football coach. The hardest part about working for Gregg was that Gregg was a defensive guy, so every day in practice you were seeing, I mean, that guy blitzes from everywhere. It was like Canadian football - he was bringing 12 or 14 guys all the time, it looked like.

Goodell unfairly rats out Steelers over Big Ben - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
For reasons Goodell needs to explain, the NFL commissioner commented to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King about investigating Roethlisberger last offseason, a process that resulted in a six-game suspension (reduced to four). King released an excerpt of Goodell’s comments (more to appear in this week’s magazine) that painted Roethlisberger as an ostracized member of the Steelers and, more importantly, threw nearly two dozen of his teammates under the bus.

The 2008 NFL Re-Draft: How it would have gone had we known what we know now - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
7.) New Orleans Saints: Another defensive bust fell into the hands of the New Orleans Saints in the name of Sedrick Ellis(notes). The big defensive tackle has been a disappointment, to say the least. He hasn't been terrible, so maybe the word bust is a bit strong, as he did lead the team in sacks in 2010, although it was with only 6, but he is by no means an impact player. The Saints would have been much better off going with the Pro-Bowl cornerback, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie(notes). Imagine Cromartie on the Saints defense. He would make an already great team, nearly unbeatable.
