When we could win a game with a 53 yd fieldgoal that was missed and somehow the fault should go to our linemen. We lost that game because Payton didnt bring in a replacement for Mare who had a pulled groin and couldnt even kick a 20 yd fg. To point out Faine who missed a block on what would have been our greatest play ever watchin the te run down the field on a screen pass (sarcasm) was not the turnin point in the game. We have no success with the screen pass NONE no matter who we throw to or who is blocking it just doesnt work. The greatest solution to that problem would be just dont friggin run it anymore.
First of all if we would have kicked a 53 yarder it would have been blocked because of poor blocking (didn't that happend). Faine one play didn't affect the game I used that as an example of how they are blocking and playing. You get someone in there who is going to freakin' block and play football don't let the trash out on the field. Just because they aren't doing there assignments like they are suppose to doesn't mean you don't run a play WTF are you talking about. With that reasoning we wouldn't even let Bush run the ball because he go tackled before getting to the line of scrimmage??? WHAT??? What the hell "hey Brees, don't even throw anymore passes because you threw an interception", is what this joker is staying.

Re: What To Do About The O-line

You cannot blame the linemen when a 20 yd fg gets blocked. Especially when the ball is blocked not by a defenders fingertips or hand but by his elbow. He didnt get any penetration he just jumped up and since it hit his elbow he didnt even have to jump. Having a kicker with a pulled groin is as effective as posting the same thing in every thread.
Hell yeah you can stop callin screens they dont work. Everytime they run a screen the dline reads it and is waitn for it. I dont care why it doesnt work it doesnt work and I think our offense would be more productive if they dont use it

The defenders were standing between the O linemen, no one was touching him. Your line is to try and prevent the damn D line men from getting up in the air. There was no one in front of they guy much less his elbow. But you do have a good point niether right nor wrong.

That screen had 2 blockers and 2 defenders in the area it was a clear one on one/two on two blocking and a TE with the ball headed there way. NUMBERS favored the Saints and Faine F'ed it up. That is how he has played all season. GO LOOK AT THE GAMES.

I don't know if you call it funny but at least somethings seem to be true no matter what the situation is... its interesting to see where the problems of the team still are or not. Every week in football its a matter of match ups. If a players isn't making plays when we play good or not making plays when we play good... hmmm you got to fix that if you want to get better and compete against high-power teams.
