Johnson: Saints Are Armed And Dangerous

November 20, 2003

Brad Childress is concerned with the Saints active front line. Jim Johnson's defense is under a "red" alert as they prepare for one of the best red-zone offenses in the league. And John Harbaugh's unit must contend with Pro Bowl return man Michael Lewis.

The coordinators break it all down here, in the Coach's Clipboard...

Johnson: Saints Are Armed And Dangerous

Jim Johnson understands how good the Saints offense is and how explosive the combination of quarterback Aaron Brooks and running back Deuce McAllister will be Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

And it's in the red zone where it really matters. The Eagles have bent a little bit this year, but they haven't broken. Teams just aren't scoring much. But New Orleans has a highly rated red zone offense. Something has to give on Sunday.

Saints QB Aaron Brooks is just one of Jim Johnson's concerns
"The quarterback scrambles around so much. He has a rifle arm. They're No. 3 in the league in the red zone," said Johnson. "The receivers just keep running around back there and he'll rifle it in there. He's really dangerous down in the red area. It's not that he's going to take off and run for the touchdown as much as him running around back there and finding an open receiver."
