New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is impressed with Cameron Jordan and Junior Galette, and he should be given how the two have responded to defensive coordinator Rob Ryan’s unit.

Jordan and Galette may very well be the glue that holds the patchwork unit together. Galette has nine sacks, while Jordan has been disruptive with his 11.5.

Thursday, Payton was asked about the impact of both and had nothing but good things to say:

“Well they’re different players. Both of them have good motors. It’s hard to (play them together) down in and down out, especially is a game becomes one dimensional on one side of the ball, for our defense against the offense to consistently rush the passer with the same amount of energy and effort that’s required. We do a good job of getting in a rotation and yet, both of those two guys have really stepped up and given us consistent pressure and given us…sometimes it may not result in a sack; sometimes it’s a hurry that results in an incompletion. On third down, that’s off the field, so that’ll be an important stat in this game: the third down snaps and how both teams do.”

Impact players such as Jordan and Galette are hard to find, and Payton knows this. Were it not for the consistent pressure Payton mentions, the Saints’ secondary may be more exploited on a regular basis.

We are confident the Saints are going to be doing more rebuilding on the defensive side of the football in the offseason, but we are even more confident Jordan and Galette are here to stay.

There is nothing quite like having a defensive building block to build around for years. The Saints have two.
