Exactly ! We for the most part have been void of a pass rush in all of our preseason games, whether our starters were in there or not. I seem to recall that rook Babin made one sack in the Cowboys game, but for the most part he's been handled rather easily by the opposition. Some point to Payne's return as a big boost, but it's a lot to hope that he's just gonna pick up where he left off last year in the NO game. Best case scenario is that he regains form by mid-season. And the Walker injury is troublsome.
We have talent, but we're very vulnerable because were so thin and inexperienced.
