New Orleans Saints Training Camp 2010: Top Five Week One Observations

1 of 2

Training camps have begun league wide and the Saints kicked off their attempt at a Super Bowl repeat this past Friday at their Metairie practice facility minutes from downtown New Orleans.

The current Super Bowl champs enter camp with many questions heading into the 2010 season.

Who will step up and replace former starting strong side linebacker Scott Fujita?

How will safety Darren Sharper respond after under going micro-fracture knee surgery in the off-season?

Who will become Brees’ backup next season?

Can the Saints avoid the Super Bowl hangover after securing their  first championship in franchise history?

Uncertainty surrounds the Saints as thick as the New Orleans humidity as pundits claim they are doomed to fail in 2010.

Just dont tell Mickey Loomis, Sean Payton and Gregg Williams that.

However with the first “week” of training camp in the rear view mirror some of the answers to these questions are coming to light, here are the top five observations from training camp thus far.

1. No one quarterback has distinguished themselves so far in training camp.

The battle continues between Chase Daniel, Sean Canfield, and Patrick Ramsey as each QB has had good moments and each has bad moments in their attempts to become the top number two guy behind Brees.

Daniel is assuredly the front runner but cannot seem to find the consistency needed in an NFL quarterback throwing lasers but then errant throws and almost interceptions regularly during drills.

Canfield continues to struggle with learning the Saints complicated offense and more often than not is failing to complete passes.

Ramsey, also a newcomer to the Saints offense, is slowly understanding the subtle nuances of Payton’s system and not unlike Daniel can make a fantastic play one snap and a poor the next.
