Kristian: Secondary shines at Friday Saints practice
Most impressive: What really stood out to me was the secondary for the first team and the second team unit. Keenan Lewis continues to get his hands on a number of footballs, batting them down. I think that might turn out to be the strength of this defense...not necessarily the pass rush, because I think that's a bit of a question mark.
It's certainly looking like the secondary is going to be able to make some plays on the football.
Not a bright idea: The other thing is the fan who charged the field. What a knucklehead. And I'm not advocating this sort of thing, but if you're goin to be that kind of idiot, at least wait until game day. He said he wanted to give the team a piece of their mind, and alcohol was apparently a factor. It's not wise to charge a football field at an NFL Training Camp. And these are JPSO officers working security, so now you're facing a felony charge of battery upon a police officer...not to mention you'll probably never get to see another practice again. In the words of Fred Sandford, ‘You Big Dummy!’
Saturday’s scrimmage: This is the closest thing that you're going to see to a preseason game. There will be some live moments, they'll clear the field, and it will be game-like situations. Now, they're not going to be bringing guys down to the ground, there's not going to be a lot of that.
Back on the field: Running back Mark Ingram was back at practice after sitting out yesterday.
