Fortunately we haven’t reached that point quite yet....

Restudying the Saints needs

If you’ve listened to Mickey Loomis and Sean Payton‘s interviews this past week, you’ve gotten brand new insight into where the roster goes from here.

Saints need speed

Looking towards the draft and to the history of the last few years there is some trend that I noticed: speed! Some of the recent draft picks the Saints have made were speedy guys, and not just a bit speedy, but very very fast. With the arrival of Jeff Ireland that might change, though. However the speed guys drafted have been all on offense. That tells me Sean Payton loves speed...
