Who Dat Dish: New Orleans Saints News, Rumors And Links For 7/21


Not much happens in the world of the NFL on the weekends during the offseason unless you root for the New England Patriots, but Sunday there are a few things we would like to point out when it comes to the New Orleans Saints.

Today we’ll look at some tough questions and unveil the Saints newest leader.

Let’s take a look.


ESPN Held a Chat and Answered Some Tough Saints Questions

Per Pat Yasinskas:


Lloyd (Baton Rouge, LA): Pat, did you see what your colleague at ESPN Matt Williamson tweeted about the Saints D line last week: “Excited about #Saints 3 Man DL w combo of Jordan (DE), Hicks (DE), Jenkins (NT or DE) & Bunkley (NT)…young

PY: Think you will see a lot of Jenkins and Hicks.

Fourthandgoaldude (Ocean Springs, MS): In N.O….Does the Will Smith experiment work? Will Vilma be a major contributor? Which safety gets bumped eventually for Vaccaro?

PY: No, no and Harper.


Curtis Lofton is the Biggest Leader for Saints

Per’s Mike Triplett:

Saints assistant head coach/linebackers coach Joe Vitt said he has recognized that in Lofton, comparing him to former Saints linebacker Scott Fujita as guys who “fell in love with the community and became engulfed in the community.”

Even during the offseason, Lofton has planted his roots here.

Last year, Lofton spent his hiatus between OTAs and training camp working out at Holy Cross with the school’s trainer Adam Giglio. This year, he joined several Saints teammates at the Sonic Boom speed, conditioning and strength academy in Jefferson, working with local trainer Wyatt Harris.

      I can’t wait to see Lofton & Vilma do they thang this season people’s talks about Rob Ryan. Saying he know good for the Saints, I’m going to say this a coach can only be what the players make him to be. I believe New Orleans Saints going to prove Rob Ryan the right defensive cor. for the Saints.
