The winning is very much because of the D-Line.

I wouldn't crow about holding a team under 100 yards that didn't run much because they were torching our secondary.

That's like saying you're pleased that the number of fires that destroyed homes were low during Katrina.

Agree wholeheartly, they are both playing well. Does my bias for the lines stick out to much? LOL.

Take away that one big play in the first half and how exactly did they torch our secondary? They were playing catch up football in the second half... of course they had to throw the football and were going to put up yardage.

I'm pretty sure our gameplan was to stop the run and make Quinn beat us. And judging by the outcome of the game, mission accomplished.

Re: Who Thinks Our D-Line Suck Now?

Ahhh this thread must be for me... I DO!

Do you know how much they are getting paid??? Are they seriously living up to there salaries? ONE decent game with team and problems at QB and you think we have a pro-bowl D? They scored 24 on us still. Our DE's did what???

Sorry still not impressed. What won the game for us was the Offense pure and simple.

24 points. One blown coverage for 80 yd TD. 1 return for TD. That means only 1 sustained drive for a TD and 1 FG. That's not bad defense. I'll take it. Offense won the game but the defense did enough to allow that to happen.

No, they're not sucking but they're not playing great either. Granted they have performed well against the run, but there is still a terrible lack of QB pressure. We have some bad QB's putting up decent numbers without much pressure at all.

Hey buddy, do me a favor. If ever you decide to say something good about the Saints, please PM me first. You know I have a bad heart and another heart attack might just do me in.

Thats fine if you are happy with doing what you claim against a team who started a QB who was and still unknown to the NFL.

They scored 24 points against us period. Give credit to the Offense for scoring a lot and often. When you got names on that line making top dollar and set high expectations of themselves and running at the mouth how many sacks they are going to get and they don't even get a fraction of that so far this season... you have issues.

You can take it all you want but you got .500 ball. We have a weak schedule coming up and sure its going to inflat some stats but maybe good for the team as a whole but we will be exposed shortly.
