NO Sedrick Ellis = MAJOR run yards

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I really hope we have Ellis back by the Patriots game. That that the Patties are a huge running team, but we'll need all our guns loaded for that one. That being said - one game at a time....

I'm going to watch the game again but I don't think the yards were gained because Ellis was out but more the fact that the ends didn't hold containment. All the big runs were bounced outside not between the tackles.

Re: NO Sedrick Ellis = MAJOR run yards

I thought losing Ellis would hurt, but only in the passing game. He gets a good push up the gut.

I was surprised how much our run defense suffered without him.

Also, anyone notice that Charles Grant was moving in slow motion again? He just wasn't a factor. He's back to his on again, off again status.

I know Gregg Williams is pissed. They have to tighten up.
Yup thats why I noticed him not playing much in the second half.

I was more impressed with Turner than anything else. The guy is a load. Not only that but he runs sideways as good as anybody I've ever seen.

Give credit to this man.

overcompensating in the middle was a huge reason for breaking containment.....they were getting a push up the middle and because of that grant got caught out of position trying to fill the void

you will notice when you watch the game again how often grant gets sucked inside

Re: NO Sedrick Ellis = MAJOR run yards

Either way you slice it, him being out is going to hurt us. He hurt his MCL and will be out 4-6 weeks. We are really going to need him for the Pats game. Im also concerned with Carolina's run game. They have been running the ball well the last couple of weeks.
