The Saints have been very active on the defensive side of the football this offseason, but is it enough?

Should New Orleans have been more active pursuing higher quality free agents? Should they go defense in the first round of the draft?

The Saints need to get better in the secondary, considering they are playing the AFC East and the NFC East next season. There are too many threats in those divisions for the Saints to feel that they are comfortable with what they have now that they have added they players they did this offseason.

Think about it. They play the Giants, Cowboys, Patriots, Eagles, and yes, even the Bills, who just acquired Terrell Owens.

With the defensive line they have, they also could be run all over. Charles Grant and Will Smith both need to get back to their "A-Game". Sedrick Ellis is proved to be worth a his draft pick last year.

They need another good defensive tackle so that they can pull the double team off of Ellis.The addition of Bobby McCray last year proved to be worth it. The question is can he keep it up?

Can Gregg Williams give them a defense? Or is this another big name coach that the Saints have hired that is going to fail?

No Saints fan wants to think like this. But the fact of the matter is that these are serious problems that need to be addressed this offseason.
