Why we are good against the run.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm stuck with the cincy/arizona game and they just showed a stat of the easiest teams to throw on. Shockingly (please note my sarcasm) we are at the top of the list. We give up an average 100.4 passer rating. ...

Why we are good against the run.

I'm stuck with the cincy/arizona game and they just showed a stat of the easiest teams to throw on. Shockingly (please note my sarcasm) we are at the top of the list. We give up an average 100.4 passer rating. So why run when you can throw it without any negative consequences.

Re: Why we are good against the run.

That is what is so misleading about the stats. The Saints, in the past few years, have been historically easy to run on. The reason the stats are so wacked is right now it's even easier to just throw on them. One thing I will point out as a positive, Hollis Thomas playing at a high level does help the run defense. I thought the Saints did a decent job against Ron Dayne until the 4th quarter. Of course, isn't that what RB's are suppose to do?
