Saints Defense Top 10?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The Vikings passing game was not sharp last week. I wouldn't get too optimistic based on that one game, though our D did look good....

We got freight trained last night... run over and burnt.... Where is the weakness? Greg or the Players?

270 yards passing
140 yards rushing <----when will this stop?

417 total yards WTF?

Opportunistic Defense, well coached...Affirmative

Top 10 Defense...Not so much

Three major problems with our defense...

One, we cannot stop the gash runs up the middle forcing opponents to pass against our strength which, can't believe this now, is our defensive backs; Ellis is a bust when you consider the move to grab him and the production in return, Harper, well the 49'ers got him in coverage against V Davis and you saw how ugly that is (Circa Chicago Game), and Vilma is one of the most skilled LB in the game, but he's not a threatening Middle Linebacker...

Two, we lack a fearsome hitter at the safety position, especially strong safety position, that keeps runners from stretching for extra yards rather than turtle up (Frank Gore fell forward, PT fell back or straight down)...

Third, we've got the slowest pass rush in the NFL; the FA acquisitions were nice, we've not drafted nor seriously addressed the pass rush, and this is almost a big a problem as being weak up the middle...

I love our team, but I have to be honest and give tough love here...

I think from watching the last two games, that they may give up some yardage, but that they sure end up with the ball when it counts.

Our problem is:

1. We blitz like crazy and never get to the QB.
2. We plug up the gaps then give up, and the RB pops out.

But I have noticed that the QB is hurried every time cory, sometimes you dont have to sack, a bad throw or interception is better than a sack.

I agree tho, about the run stop problem. But mostly on the goal line. If we could just stop goal line runs.

True, we're now ranked 22nd in the league (15 pass, 30 run).
