Any Given Sunday-FO

http://www.footballoutsiders.com/200...n-sunday/5612/

A sample of the article:

"This game is being hailed as the potential turnaround by the Saints, but the rest of the season should show us that it was merely a blip in the road for a mediocre team against a poor team. The Saints scored one touchdown on a fumbled punt snap and another after they gained 15 yards on their own fumble when multiple Seahawks had an opportunity to cover it. Meanwhile, Seattle should welcome back Branch and Hackett in the coming weeks to form an explosive passing offense.
The escape from my dire prediction could occur if the Saints offense can overlook the razzle-dazzle and develop a workmanlike approach. If an opposing team plays zone, the offense has to take what the defense gives it. Underneath throws and runs up the middle are the key. Long passes and outside runs should be shelved until they force opponents to shift their strategy. The Saints should have a chance to show patience in developing this offense the next few weeks. They get the offensively inept 49ers and Falcons before a real test against Jacksonville. Win the next two, and the Saints will at least have salvaged relevancy."

Re: Any Given Sunday-FO

I had to respond to this full article on that site, and this is what I wrote;

Let me say upfront that I agree with most of this article. The following is just a few items with my perspective;
1) Yes a bad snap gave the Saints an instant 7 points, but take that score away and they still win.
2) If you coached the team that had the #1 offense in the league the previous year with the same players, how much would you change your offense?… That’s what I thought.
3) This game was over in the 2nd quarter, everything you saw from the Saints after that was conservative control and prevent.
4) The “razzle-dazzle” works for the Saints when blockers make their assignments, and when the “gadget” plays work it seems to hack everyone off but the Saints.
Other than that, good read.
