Another win beating up on the wounded and confused

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; While I love the win on the road, this win didn't really demonstrate anything other than the 2007 Saints are mediocre at best. Same issues with penalties, continuity, inability to run, play selection, poor blocking, poor tackling, and unenthusiastic play ...

Another win beating up on the wounded and confused

While I love the win on the road, this win didn't really demonstrate anything other than the 2007 Saints are mediocre at best. Same issues with penalties, continuity, inability to run, play selection, poor blocking, poor tackling, and unenthusiastic play will hunt this team down against a better (read healthy) opponent.

JD has got to be the all time worst FA acquisition. If it weren't for his inadvertant knee in the back of Steve Smith's leg, he would have thrown a goose egg for productivity. 10 men on the field would be better.

If the Saints actually beat up on the Bucs next week, I might give them a break and move them up to incompetent. At this point, they've not proven anything.

I'll have more to say because I'm tired and overserved in the GD. Trust it won't be complementary.

How do you figure the running game was unproductive?

It's the reason why we won.

Maybe you guys play too many video games.

I'm willing to debate this entire post, though. Well, aside from Jason David. He IS horrible.


I'll keep checking back.

The Saints running game does leave a lot to be desired, but today, it did help put a big win on the board. The fact that the Saints just stuck with it was huge. Also, remember that Carolina is historically a hard team to run against. Overall it was an excellent game plan.

I don't know how to tell you this but I don't even own a video game. I did however play the game a while. So please don't aim your remarks about video games at me. I do know a little something about the game.

And yes, Jason David is horrible.

Re: Another win beating up on the wounded and confused

Coach Sean Payton had planned most of the week to use Stecker and Thomas against the Panthers, and he was pleasantly surprised that Bush was able to play as much as he did.

"(Bush) missed Friday's practice, and I felt like we needed to come in and have some balance in the running game," Payton said. "With that being said, we got Aaron and Pierre going a little bit in some of the core personnel groups, and we were able to utilize Reggie.

". . . I didn't think come game time that (Bush's injury) would be a factor. It's just the pain. And when you play running back, there's a chance you're going to get hit there, you're going to get banged there and it's going to be sore. It's managing the pain, and in Friday's practice it swelled a little bit. So I was pleased with his playing time, and he gave us some juice a little bit, as did Aaron and Pierre. I though we had good balance, a good mix."

Re: Another win beating up on the wounded and confused

A win is a win in my book... I could careless if it was against one of the worst offenses in the league.

On the side note, Carolina's D isn't exactly what I'd call bad.
