Parade Gaps

There is nothing more frustrating than watching a five-hour parade that has 100-foot gaps in between the bands and floats. The gaps in the parade can make or break a day of parade watching.

The Saints’ defense can learn to not to leave gaps open on the defense. The linebackers especially will be looked upon to seal those holes. The Saints linebackers have to be smarter and faster.

The safeties and corners will also be needed to help come up and stop the run. Furthermore, stamina will be needed to go into the fourth quarter in a close game. Who Dat Nation can only hope that the Saints will not go back to West Virginia for training camp this year.

The experiment simply has not worked. Sean Payton has been very smart in making changes when needed. Let’s hope that come opening day, the team will look nasty for four whole quarters. And last but not least are the forgotten ones.
