Fiery coach vs. lazy tackle
If you have watched Gregg Williams coach and also watched Shaun Rogers practice, then you'd know that there's a chance this could be a volatile situation on a hot summer day down in Louisiana. Williams accepts no excuses for lack of effort or mental errors, and he doesn't care what your reputation is or how much money you make. Rogers is a very talented player who might have some issues as the summer goes on. Stay tuned to this situation.
Is Sproles a proper replacement for Bush?
On the same day that the Saints traded electric playmaker Reggie Bush to the Dolphins, the team acquired Darren Sproles -- formerly of the Chargers -- via free agency. Like Bush, Sproles has a proven ability to attain big gains as a runner, pass receiver and return specialist.
Can the team fill all necessary holes?
The Saints had 26 players that are classified as unrestricted free agents. There is no intent to bring them all back, so there are holes to fill. The first move the Saints made was to sign an undrafted rookie safety, DeAndre McDaniels from Clemson. It might take all summer to get their roster the way they want it.

Top position battle

While Pierre Thomas figures to still be a prominent figure in the Saints' offense, rookie Mark Ingram could create a backfield-by-committee situation. Should the former Heisman winner be the team's starter?
