As a New Orleans Saints fan, I cannot imagine what life would be like in the Big Easy in an NFL lockout. But maybe my fears of wretched boredom are understating our future perils
Jonathan Casillas was tantalizingly close to rising from the ranks of the undrafted to an NFL starter in a mere two seasons, only to have a freak injury in the last exhibition game of 2010 relegate him to rehab.
The owners won a significant victory last week when the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals gave the league a delay of the injunction that would have lifted the lockout.
This upcoming season Saints fans may see a very different defense hit the field as changes have been put in place on the defensive line, defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was signed and defensive end Cameron Jordan was drafted, although a more drastic change is likely to be seen at linebacker.
