ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to the football team New Orleans Saints. Montrae Holland is back in the starting lineup, replacing Jermane Mayberry. Holland moved to the bench when Mayberry signed as a free agent in the offseason. Fred Thomas has returned to peak form, giving the team good depth at cornerback. Thomas has been active around the ball and makes plays against the run and the pass. Courtney Watson lost his starting job to Ronald McKinnon in Week 8 because McKinnon was more consistent against the run.
