Bobby McCray (#93) - Defensive End
Will Smith (#91) - Defensive End. Best pass rusher on the team. Second in sacks in the NFC with 13 sacks.
Scott Fujita (#55) - Missed 5 games because of knee injury, but still had 75 tackles.
Jonathan Vilma (#51) - Decent season with 130 tackles, 3 interceptions and 2 sacks. Also had an interception in the NFC title game.
Scott Shanle (#58) - Third on the team in tackles.
Jabari Greer (#32) - Started the season strong with 2 interceptions and a touchdown, but missed almost half of the season with a sports hernia.
Tracy Porter (#22) - He is a big reason the Saints made it to the Super Bowl. He intercepted Favre in overtime which set up the Saints to score. During the regular season he had 4 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles and 69 tackles.
Roman Harper (#41) - Strong Safety. Second on team with 127 tackles.
Darren Sharper (#42) - Free Safety. He'll be ready for Dallas Clark or Reggie Wayne. He Set the NFL record with 376 yards on interception runbacks and one was for 99 yards! Peyton needs to be careful throwing to his side.
The Saints' Defense needs to stop Peyton from throwing the ball. To be successful, the line needs to step up and the linebackers and cornerbacks need to blitz. All of this is much easier said than done!
