Former Saint Fujita helps Browns stun his old team by revealing signals on Saints sideline/pre-snaps..

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; What is unbelievable to me is not that Fujita was so successful in reading the Saints' offensive moves, but that Sean Payton did absolutely nothing to account for Fujita's awareness of the sideline signals and substitution patterns.

What is unbelievable to me is not that Fujita was so successful in reading the Saints' offensive moves, but that Sean Payton did absolutely nothing to account for Fujita's awareness of the sideline signals and substitution patterns. Therefore, it seems totally clear that the Saints took the Browns for granted. When you take an opponent for granted you usually end up with a loss. In fact, the way the Browns exectued their fake punt and their surprise utilization of Peyton Hillis as quarterback reminded me of the reckless abandon with which the Saints played last year. Sigh.

Its kind of hard to re-write your playbook because your starting center goes to TampaBay or your linebacker ends up in Cleveland. We definitely didn't want to start changing codes and cadences when we've been bungling up the formations and snap counts as they were. There is a definite advantage when a team knows what they are looking at. That's when its time to man UP, do your job, execute your assignment, take your man out of the play; whether he thinks he knows where the play is going or not. As an O-lineman, on a passing play, my man is not getting to the quarterback - PERIOD. At least that's how one ought to think. On a running play, PT, Ivory, Reggie, Julius or anybody that gets the ball can run off my butt because my man is going to be sealed to one side or the other. That has not been our attitude this year and it has shown in our run push and pass protection. Kudos to Fujita/Browns and shame on us.

I find it hard to believe that SP and GW didn't think Scott wouldn't remember/know the signals and plays that were possibly coming up. They should have realised he would be telling his team and coaches what to expect. We need to get our act together, big time!!!!!!!!!
