Again, it was only about 5 posts ago...

Dallas 4.0 YPC - that average would rank 25th in the NFL
Washington 3.5 - that average would rank 30th in the NFL

Both examples you used that contradict your point instead of supporting it.

all of which had success running the ball and controlling the ball and could've beaten us if it werent for some luck

the ypc stat isnt the only one to take into consideration

saints 13/ opponents 3

the saints could've and should've lost a few more games but by the grace of breesus we managed to pull those games out of our butts

games like dallas, st louis, washington, miami, minnesota, etc all were able to move the ball against us fairly well if not at will

If by success against us you mean that we held two of those teams to a rushing average that would rank near the bottom of the NFL, then yes.

Re: The Missing Pieces for a Rep

We are doing some things about DT - We need a LB

Re: The Missing Pieces for a Rep

I picked DT and LB, but if Woods works out and the younger LB's take hold then I might say just leave it alone.

Re: The Missing Pieces for a Rep

I picked DT, and I will tell you why. We have some guys, coming back from injury, that we don't even really know how they are going to look at LB. With the loss of Grant, (which I can't believe I'm going to say this), who was good at stopping the run, we need another space eater next to Ellis. Now, who knows, Woods could be that guy. Lord knows he's big enough. But I wouldn't mind signing some insurance, to make sure. If we get another all pro DT, then skies the limit. But let's also remember, that when Ellis got hurt last year, teams were running all over us. God forbid, but what if Ellis goes down again? Are you THAT confident in the other DTs we have on the roster? I'm not.

Re: The Missing Pieces for a Rep

DE - Good play on the edges will open up alot of opportunities for our defense. If we can bottle up the ends and send runners deep or force them inside, we can create advantages on the early downs. Defense is still the key for a Saints repeat. I believe our interior will be fine. Speed on the outside, good power rusher and/or an active LB to help Vilma. I tossed a coin (DE vs LB) and it fell on DE. What ever we do, it needs to be done up front.

Re: The Missing Pieces for a Rep

While losing Fujita was a serious loss to the team, I feel that Shanley has what it takes to fill in there. The Defensive end position is where my concern is. If we cant maintain pressure on quarterbacks we mine as well call it a day.
