KEY TO NEXT 8 GAMES

KEY TO NEXT 8 GAMES

I agree totally, and I\'d say number 7 is key. As a young team the Saints do seem to have problems putting lesser teams away. I\'m thinking (hoping) this will come with time...I also think Dale Carter will increase our chances of not letting something like the Atlanta collapse happen again!

KEY TO NEXT 8 GAMES

another good key to victory is mental mistakes, not only turnovers but the stupid penaltys, a team can lose a game just by a few penalties, as we all saw in the falcons game, the call back of the long TD run by deuce, and the roughing the passer at the end of the game and the pass interference call also. now, its my opinion that these were bad calls, but we shouldnt put ourselves in positions that allow the refs to make those horrible calls.

9. Give the dam ball to Deuce to open up Passing game & to stay away from 3rd & long

This is the one that stands out for me.

We gotta continue to put the ball in Deuce\'s hands

one point that needs to be mentioned is the Saints Defense needs to be able to tackle better, get more consistant play from their LBs, and get off the field on third downs so they are not worn out by the fourth quarter.

i agree on the tackling point, the saints have been tackling horribly so far this year, always going for the strip when they should be tryin to bring the man down, granted turnovers are great, but if u miss tackles when going for the strip then it shouldnt happen, just make da dam tackle

One more key. The special teams has to continue to give the Saints the excellent field position they have the first part of the year. Lewis has started up the offense almost everytime he has taken a kick off or punt this year. If the offense is pinned down deep in their own territory it kinda make the situation for passing and running obvious. Lewis has given them the ability to do whatever they want on any down or distance because of the field position they are in.

I think Fred McAffee is back. Which will help the Special teams stay focused. We will see what the defense is about now. I have been singing the Dirty Dale Blues all year long so now..... problem soved IMHO Let\'s just see over the next couple of games. The game against Atlanta will tell the whole story. IMHO The defense is about to do a 180 and the offense is about to explode all over the NFL.

another thing i would like to see the saints do is GO DEEP!! we have all this speed but we dont take too many shots at going deep. with deuce running all over the field, the safetys are creeping closer n closer to the line, we need to use all that speed and test their coverage more often!!
