Re: Are the Saints going through their slump?

Drew always throws INTs in bunches and strings together a couple of so so games. That his MO

The running game has saved the offense.

The defense is improved but wait till next years draft! A stamp has yet to be applied to this unit.

I hope it's a slump.

Our offense has been fine, but out defense has gone down a lot.
Maybe our defense has peaked, or maybe the game film has exposed
their weaknesses. I would like to see them get better against CAR.

Re: Are the Saints going through their slump?

I think Brees, and Payton nailed it- we are going to get the best of everyone. The media throws it in every teams face about our offense- The D's get tired of hearing it, and everyone wants to be the one to stop us.

That said, I think injuries are hurting us too. I think it is the combination!

We need to get to Tampa, and Rams fast, lol.

Our last 4 Games- an undefeated Jets- undefeated Giants- a very tough Miami team coming off a bye- and a very good Falcons team coming off a loss while facing losing the division quite possibly already.

We are getting the best from every team we play right now.

What do you guys think?

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Yea, defensive slump. We've been giving up a lot of yards and points lately.
Luckily, our offense is not so much in a slump.

Re: Are the Saints going through their slump?

Agree with spkb. Not many easy games from here on out.

Carolina is desperate to save their season and now they have some hope and a little pride back. If they are smart they will stick with the run even if they get behind. JD won't cough up the ball if he doesn't have it. Home field advantage should give us the win this week, but it will be another tough one.

Tampa will be tough at home and pumped for a divisional game. NE has come on very strong after a rough start while Brady was getting his stuff back. Dallas has looked very good the last couple games. Atlanta was tough in the Superdome and will be tougher in the Georgia Dome.

If I had to put money down, I would say 14-2. Hopefully that's enough for HFA.

Re: Are the Saints going through their slump?

I do believe some teams may have at least somewhat figured out the Saints to a degree. The massive pressure that Brees is seeing right now is a big problem. I believe the Saints will start to counter that with a few more dump off passes to slow that down. Bushrod is still inexperienced and has been up and down. He probably needs a TE lined up next to him more often. I wouldn't say just yet that this is a slump, but there is now a lot of game tape for the opposing teams to look at. We all know the defense gets picked apart at times, but so far the Saints seem to make enough adjustments during games to at least slow that down. Missing key defensive players is starting to show in a bad way.

8 turnovers in 2 games? Slump may even be an understatement.

If you were slumping, that would equate to 2 losses...as it is, those turnovers were overcome. Turnovers...or simplified...**** happens. Teams that are slumping do not overcome adversity. Teams that are riding the crest of the wave don't let anything get in their way.

Write a letter to Archie or any other member of the 1-15 team...or any Saint team from around that era...they will tell you what slumps are all about.
