This this this. People keep freaking out about the Seattle and the Packers games, but everything that has been going wrong lately with this defense has been visible for a long, long time now. To me the Packers game looked eerily like an even worse, sloppier version of the Ravens game from last year... And the seeds of THAT game came out of earlier games like the Rams game, or even earlier than that, where the weaknesses were starting to show. People are figuring the Saints/Gregg Williams defense out, and I have a sinking feeling it is going to get worse before it gets better.

About Harper being chased down from behind by Bradford,
this came after a very long offensive drive all the way to the goal line. When Harper gets the ball, he has to run 99 yards to score. HE SIMPLY RAN OUT OF GAS which has nothing to do with his speed. Notice how hard he was sucking oxgyen after.

It's going to take a few more games before I develop a worse opinion on Harper.

We've got some weaknesses on defense........Harper's not one of them. When Sharper was playing he was lights out. He also looked better in coverage this year.

Sharper is not a strong safety.
