Scott Fujita and Sheldon Brown also had interceptions for Cleveland. Fujita, a defensive leader for the Saints last season and a former fan favorite in the Louisiana Superdome, snagged his interception at the Cleveland 3 to thwart a likely scoring drive. Fujita also had one of three sacks on Brees. He was constantly watching the Saints' sideline for substitutions, then relayed the information to his own sideline to help with pre-snap adjustments.

Brees thanked Fujita by throwing him that pick in the redzone.

We miss scott.

I have studied what teams are doing to us in the run game and they seem to run more and successfully off tackle and right to the flat... exploiting our OLB's.

Our OLB's can't run down anyone or contain! Getting blown up and run-over.

This game however the Browns did everything right... take Brees out of the game and generate points on ST's and trick plays.

Good Point, but the defensive end's job is to contain and force the play to the inside...

We have very small defensive ends; Will Smith is adequate at best, though he did turn one run back in very nicely while still engaged with a blocker...

But we are missing Fujita's skill set and leadership, BIG TIME...

Both his guy, and Fujita were open, and he couldn't have thrown it more directly to Fujita. Seemed intentional, and in my reaction I thought "Must've been tipped," but then saw the replay "Nope, he just threw it straight to him."

Something's up--not sure what yet. But I don't blame it all on Breese, you've got to get open, catch the ball, linemen have to keep people off him, and he was a bit more harried than usual this season.

Coaches have to watch for trick plays. I keep wondering who is supposed to plug that giant hole in the punt--who is supposed to notice that guy standing 40 yards across the field, and keep an eye on him. I guess they've got something to work on.

I hated to see Fujita go--he was everywhere on the D last year.
