Meachem, Henderson, Graham.

Ingrim looked like a rookie, had some bright spots and some dark ones.

jcp026 09-09-2011 12:31 AM

Brees, Sproles, P.T., Henderson

Will Smith will be back in week 3.

I thought to myself, "Great play, Shanle!" and then realized how low my standards must be to get excited about a routine tackle.

Sproles...250 yards tonight. That's half of what Reggie made in 8 games last year.

All the bright spots mentioned are on the Offense. Not much to talk about on The D. But Green bay is a good team and will be a handful this season.

Nice thread. First time I ever said that to ya.

Sincerely,
A Saints Fan

Sproles. Freakin wow. Unfreakinbelievable how big some small guys play. Explosive.

I really respect how Colston fought back through adversity. Meach too.
All of them. It wasn't a win but it wasn't the end of all things.

I really respect how our defense fights even against a juggernaut
on steroids.

The Saints D have so much more character than SOME Saints fans, that
much is clear.

I saw Casillas and Shanle pop some cheeseheads.

I really liked that hit on Donald Driver.
Took that sheet eatin grin right off his face.
It was payback for the hit on Colston, same result...
ball popped out. Funny how that can work.

Our defense is not a baby to be thrown out with the bathwater.
That would be similar to acting like an LSU fan or something.

I have no reason not to keep saying Two Dat till I have to start saying Three DAT!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. The "O" played well for the first game of the year, and as hard as I am on our o-line (because it sucks monkey balls) I am hopeful that it will get better.

But yeah, not much to talk about regarding our "D", unless we want to continue the banter about just how bad it was. As I said in some other thread, I will be optimistic about the defense because, for sure, they can't play any worse. We're at rock bottom on D. We can either go straight up or sideways. I just don't think we could possibly suck much harder than we did last night.

I was thinking the same thing. When all you have to do is tackle properly to stand out you know your defense is stinking it up.

As far as the bright spots, we've pretty much mentioned them already

What I was happy about was what looked to be, for the most part, a one sided game, we fought back hard and showed a lot of resilience against the best team in the league. The schedule looks promising and we going to get this thing rolling.
