New Orleans Saints are flying under the radar this offseason

Is it just me or has the New Orleans Saints offseason seemed interminably long this year?

Seems like forever ago that defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs was fired and the savior Gregg Williams was hired to work his miracles at the Saints’ facility on Airline Drive.
Doesn’t it seem like Deuce McAllister, Mike McKenzie, Brian Young and Hollis Thomas have been gone for ages, rather than months?
With the 2009 season less than three months away, the Saints and their overhauled defense are flying under the radar nationally. Scorned pundits have understandably turned their backs on the Saints after watching them fall woefully short of Super Bowl expectations the previous two years.
