Do we have the best offense EVER?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Wow, the Saints really do need to get the running game going. If they wind up with 693 passing attempts I can almost guarantee a 7-9 season....

the ol is not built for smash mouth football yet. same old story.

its early yet but i am watching

Scott Wedige, C, Northern Illinois
Height: 6-4. Weight: 314.
Projected 40 Time: 5.18.
Projected Round (2012): 4-6.

as maybe the next small school OL the saints may want to draft.

OT trade up will be need

Matt Reynolds, OT, BYU
Height: 6-6. Weight: 325.
Projected 40 Time: 5.20.

but he should be within reach.

or try

Trevor Olson, OT/G, Northern Illinois
Height: 6-6. Weight: 306.
Projected 40 Time: 5.20.

he will be a four year starter when he enters the draft

if you get a chance to watch NIU do it. they have a massive, experienced and a good OL.

I was hoping to get D.J. Fluker from Alabama, but I just realized that he is a redshirt sophomore. I guess that's unlikely right now.

Brees has been jacking it up pretty good, AGAIN.
We seem to struggle when he goes for +400.
An improved running game will even improve our defense.
We can't keep giving up that many points and looking for our offense to carry that much weight.
The offense is good but I don't think best ever.

Funny how so many don't believe this to be the best offense ever, but it's the offense under Drew and SP that got the Lombardi

Don't care what the stats say, this is the same team that lost their last three regular season games and won the Super Bowl when everyone else said it couldn't be done. Enjoy the ride and appreciate your quarterback. He's the one that I want in my foxhole.

I don't know about Best Offense Ever, but I do know this ... Brees is proving to be one of the all-time great 4th quarter QB's.

Yesterday's display was just huge. In a 5-WR set for virtually the entire 4th quarter, Drew put the team on his back. Texans had to know it was our 5 receivers running short to medium patterns and Drew taking a short drop and quick release on every single play and they couldn't stop us.

Yesterday, Brees got into a zone and it was no fluke. I only can think of 3 QB's - Marino, Elway, Peyton Manning - that could do what Brees did yesterday the way he did it. That's one heck of a Plan B.

No Running Game Comments....
The reason we have no running game is because for 2 games we were playing from behind. You get rushing yards in close games or games where you are running out the clock. Had we decided to run the ball, we would have lost. Against Chicago, there defense was just that good at stopping the run.

Best offense ever?
Kurt Warner might have something to say about that. Still, we are good as ever. We have the offense to win any shoot out as long as we don't turn the ball over too much. As far as scoring goes, this week we may not need to score so many points as we choose to run the ball to run the clock out.
