A common misconception about the NFC South is that success in the division is predicated on the quarterbacks. Brees and Matt Ryan are two of the elite passers in the NFL and Cam Newton and Josh Freeman have flashed the traits to potentially join them, but powerful rushing attacks in Atlanta, Carolina and Tampa Bay gashed the Saints a season ago. New Orleans, in fact, finished dead last in the NFL in 2012 in run defense, allowing an average of 147.6 yards per game on the ground.

Some of this can be attributed to teams running the ball (and grinding the clock) in an effort to keep Brees and the Saints' dynamic offense off the field.

It is also is a reflection of the lack of size, strength and toughness from the Saints' defense, especially in the middle.

And that is where Big John Jenkins comes into play.

The 6-foot-4, 346-pound Jenkins is expected to overtake veteran Brodrick Bunkley as the Saints' opening day starter at nose guard in new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan's beloved 3-4 defense.

It is a role Jenkins played well at Georgia after signing with the Bulldogs as a highly regarded junior college prospect.

TEAMS ARE STILL GOING TO "GRIND THAT CLOCK" WITH THE RUNNING GAME. CAUSE BRESS IS STILL AS LETHAL AS EVER. BUT THE SAINT "D" WON'T BE AS BAD AS IT WAS LAST YEAR. LAST YEAR WAS JUST WACO FOR THE WHOLE NEW ORLEANS ORGANIZATION. TOO MUCH STUFF IN THE AIR. THE AIR HAS CLEARED. WATCH OUT.cool.png

Beloved? Is that a word that is supposed to strike fear or confidence.

Makes me think the writer is referring to a defense from another time.
