The Saints should be blitzing most of the time exactly the way they did last night. Have folks coming from all directions.

Reggie can be an every down back, Sean Payton just needs to stop calling cutesie plays and run the damn ball up the middle. If you run a stretch, screen pass, or swing pass every other play, it's not going to trick anybody. We need to stick to "bread and butter," which should be some inside and outside running plays and an intermediate passing game.
I agree to a point. The Saints have neither the line nor the back to just line it up and run. The offense needs to incorporate misdirection into the running scheme. I like the end around wideout coming back into the backfield, forcing the contain man to account for them. I'd like to see more of the counter trey with a designed cutback.

I mean seriously, is it too much to ask for a freaking slant? We threw one last night and it worked beautifully. Slants, curls, etc. They work even if they're not as flashy as jailbreak screens and whatnot that Sean loves.
Agreed.

David Patten played great. Brees was much better too. Props to both of them for stepping up when we needed them.
Brees is a better QB when he isn't pressured every play. Hmmm, I think that's true of all NFL QBs.

EJ is a stud. Great hustle. One of the few hustle plays I've seen all year out of this offense.
And the guy can catch too.
