Toast of the Town!!!

Well, if you watched anything from Saturday's night preseason game between the Texans and the Saints, there was one glaring thing that stood out among the rest. Jason David is done as a Saint. There's no if's or maybe's. No up by 30 down by 30 points. He's just not good enough to start at cornerback, much less sub in on nickel and dime packages. The guys self-esteem has to be beyond low, like Alicia Sacramone-falling-off-the-balance-beam low.

What's worse is that every Saints fan has heard the excuses. "Poor 3rd down defense. Um, wrong coverage at the time. Um, I just slipped on the play."
I have to say that there has to be a cornerback on our team or somebody delivering Budweiser somewhere in the city that can cover better than Jason David. I thought I would never say this, but Fred Thomas was better. Toi Cook(ed) was better. Even Alex Molden.

I even made the point to my brother, that the Saints are better off rushing two lineman and putting an extra two or three defensive backs on Jason's side of the field. The guy has had little if any positive moments as a Saint, and has done nothing to shore up our secondary. It's time to say goodbye.

The lone bright spot from the night came from the offensive side of the ball. It looks as if Marques Colston is in mid-season form. That touchdown catch he made was ridiculous. And Reggie and Duece look like they could be back to 2006 season form. I liked the way we moved the ball in hurry-up, but we still had trouble establishing long, time eschewing drives. Like the ones that killed the Eagles in the playoffs. It has become more obvious to me that the Saints are becoming a team that relies to heavily upon their offense to win every game. Can't happen. That's what happened in 2007. We need a good defense if we want to be a real contender. I want the Saints to win more than anything else, but if they don't fix their secondary problems we could be in for another long season of nail biting games that hinge on whether our offense can score 30 or more.

Here's your stat of the day. -7 turnover margin for Saints in 2007. New England Patriots were +16 in turnover margin in 2007.

Fred Thomas is really worse than #42?
