"Sports Center" quotes for summer 2007

"Sports Center" quotes for summer 2007

"New Orleans is still the best offense as long as they don't get one-dimensional."

"Last season the Saints thrived offensively because they used Reggie Bush to create mismatches. they didn't rely too much on the run or press the pass and kept team off balance by mixing it up and throwing ball in run situations and vice versa. That's the key to this team's offensive success and it will continue this season. The Saints are the class of the division and they should repeat as the South champs. They are the most balanced team in the division and have the ability to outscore any team in the South, including the best defense in Carolina."

-Merrill Hoge, former Steelers running back

"Four words. Drew Brees and Sean Payton."
"Last season Payton emerged as the heir to the throne of best playcaller in the league. He put himself on the level of a Mike Holmgren and Mike Shannahan with his inventive playcalling. He consistently kept opposing defenses on their toes with the way he mixed it up and utilized Bush and Deuce McAllister as a tandem Under Payton's tutelage, Brees continued his ascent to the upper echelon of quarterbacks. He's cool under pressure and makes the right decisions for his offense. This team is set offensively. The Saints are the best at the skill positions offensively in this division and defensively play the best team game in the division. That adds up to another divisional crown for the Saints."

- Joe Theismann, former Redskins quarterback


"This is the most underrated defense in the league. This is the best Saints defense since the days of the Dome Patrol when Rickey Jackson, Vaughn Johnson and Sam Mills roamed the Superdome and decimated opposing offenses. This team may not have the big names and great individual performers that other defenses have, but they have a great team defense ethic and they stick to what they are supposed to do. They don't stray and freelance on the field. Each player knows his role and plays it perfectly."

- Ron Jaworski
