Saints Nation: Saints' Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades @ Packers

There's nothing more to say about this defense than to sum it up by saying they suck. I hate to be that crass or simplistic, but right now they really don't do anything well. The run defense is porous, the pass defense is shaky at best when they are 100% healthy (which hasn't been often) and the pass rush takes bad to a whole new level.
