Kristian: Saints pick up help on defense

Cornerback Chris Carr's agent says he is re-signing with the Saints.  It's a sign they're trying to shore up a squad that's been decimated wtih injuries.  It also makes me think the injury to Patrick Robinson is pretty significant, to consider bringing in a new DB.  Now, the Saints haven't announced what the corresponding roster move will be to make room for Carr, but it makes sense that they're bringing him in to replace P-Rob.  That injury in the Tampa game looked pretty bad. 
Carr was at the Saints camp, and I thought at times he looked impressive.  He's a veteran that Rob Ryan is very familiar with, so you know what you're getting, and he's someone that can contribute. 
What's next: The Saints have Tuesday off, then they'll get to work on Arizona tomorrow. They really have to get their running game cranked up, and also work on scoring more efficently in the red zone.  They've been settling for way too many field goals, and that will catch up with them eventually.  They've got to score TD's. 
Plus, Arizona has a pretty good defense.  There's no cupcakes on that squad.  Plus, I'm looking forward to getting my first look at former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu. 
Not going anywhere:  For all the fans calling for Mark Ingram's head... Relax.  That's just not going to happen this year, at least not during the season. If he is cut, it will be after the season is over. Now, he could be benced, if he doesn't improve, but that would be later in the season.  If they cut hm now, you're on the hook for his salary, with guaranteed money.  It's just not feasible, they're just not going to do that three games into the season.

Protecting Drew Brees
I just learning about football but I can't understand why Drew Brees is not being protected more and was sacked three times. What's the problem.
