All is probably not lost

For some reason Saints fans are despairing today because the team has to replace 4 sacks it got from a a guy who proved he couldn't play linebacker last year.  I think they'll be able to handle that.
The New Orleans Saints effort to revamp their defense took a hit after defensive end Hau’oli Kikaha suffered a torn ACL during practice earlier this week, according to a source.

Kikaha figured to be a major piece of the defense, and the team was planning to move him down to defensive end to help aid with the pass rush this season. The former second-round pick served as a strongside linebacker last season and finished the year with four sacks and four forced fumbles.
Really, it will be fine. That same story goes on to talk about how Kikaha was looking real good at "coming out of his hips and attacking square" or whatever while the team was running around in shorts this week.  There are several other guys already on the roster capable of being described in nonsensical coachspeak. You'll see. It will happen all summer.

Besides that the Saints already brought back the team sacks leader from 2011.  It'll be fine.
