Yahoo: Saints a Banged Up Unit Making a Playoff Run

Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports! put out an interesting article today on the health conditions of the playoff contenders.  He has the Saints listed as a team in the “Intensive Care Unit.”  Here is his breakdown of the Saints health during their current Playoff Run:

The Saints were thin on defense before the season started. Losing defensive end Charles Grant, safety Kevin Kaesviharn and cornerbacks Mike McKenzie and Tracy Porter put the Saints defense in onion-skin range. They’ve also lost top backups such as Aaron Stecker, Brian Young, Mark Simoneau, James Reed and Aaron Glenn. Throw in significant lost time to wide receiver Marques Colston, running back Reggie Bush, tight end Jeremy Shockey and defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis and you wonder how the Saints are still in the playoff race. Hey, maybe there is something to that Drew Brees for MVP discussion?
