If only we could play the Bears in the playoffs. if only. . .

what a fitting, humiliating, revenge-for-peepee-in-snowballs-throwing, wonderful way to kiss the Bears goodbye and put them to sleep for the winter.

... if only...

Re: What is the one thing you want the Saints to improve...

Kicking game for sure, but my biggest thing is run defense.

If the offense hadn't been firing on all cylinders last night, I think we would have been in trouble. The Patriots were getting whatever they wanted on the ground last night early, but they had to go away from the running game because they started getting down big. If the offense hadn't been putting up all the points, I don't know if we would have been able to shut down their running game. I'd like to see our D shut down the run a little more, especially because I get a sneaking suspicion that we're going to have to face Adrian Peterson at some point during the playoffs.

I love to see someone's mouthpiece get twisted; I get as excited as the next guy when someone gets flipped heels high, but the number of missed tackles just makes me cringe. Short 2-3 yard gains turn into 17 because we pop a guy, lay down, and the runner forgets to fold like a chair. Or the first guy on the scene goes for the strip instead of the tackle - let the second guy try to shake the ball loose. Greg Williams is high on turnovers, and our numbers are way up with him at the defensive helm, but I know he hasn't traded in form for fashion. We have gotten away with a lot of stuff this year, but I hope we clean that up soon.
I couldn't agree more or add anything to that.

WHO DAT!!!

Ding ... Ding ...Ding .... the winner ..... we need to double-stuff the run ... we'll likely be playing AP in the playoffs ..... the only salvation is that our defense gets to practice against Drew Dat almost every day .... that's got to help on some level as we progress to an undefeated (yes, we can say it now) Superbowl season.
