Much has been said about the demise of the linebacker position in New Orleans, especially in a new system that relies so much on the position. Yet the Saints have plenty of talented pass rushers such as Junior Galette and Martez Wilson, not to mention the recently-added Parys Haralson who was obtained via trade.

Lack of production in the past does not mean it won’t happen. Galette and Wilson are better fits in a 3-4 scheme rushing the passer. That will show against the Falcons.
