Harping On The Defense

Posted: June 13, 2009 in Saints

This offseason, the secondary has seen another major change. Three of four defensive back positions have been switched out to players who P-Dog and Co. feel to be more competent and more adequetely suited to melt some offensive faces this coming season.

These three new guys are no joke either. Jabari Greer and Darren Sharper are a CB and S respectively and also are both proven, veteran defensive backs. The third is a guy out of the draft, Malcolm Jenkins, who is projected to start at the other corner position. With a new D-coordinator and an aggresive middle linebacker only in his second year (Jonathan Vilma), theres not much at all the same with the Fleur-d-lis D; that is except for Roman Harper. This may have been the best choice the Saints organization has ever made to make him the one guy back to the defensive backfield. Harper has shown time and time again he can be on top the ball at any given moment and he hardly ever misses a tackle. Another good sign is that NOS.com has already reported that he is showing signs of improvement from his already stellar play. Just imagine putting a competent safety on the other side of the defense. It could make for an interesting developed.

So basically I’m pretty stoked about Harper, hopefully he will continue his agressive style of play in 2009.
