But, the two good offenses they've faced so far has put up 75 on them. That isn't going to get it done. I love Brees and the offense but with the O-Line having issues and with the real possibility of having to play an outdoor game in the playoffs, if they can get through a tough division, it's just asking too much of the offense to win every game. The Saints are 0-2 on the road in the playoffs under Payton while in my opinion losing to less talented teams.
Our defense has been up against 2 of the best offenses in the league and the Bears offense are not slouch. Many teams defenses will get shredded by the Texans and Packers this year. Lets wait until we are not playing elite offenses to panic about our D. Our D will develop over the season and when we face these teams in the playoffs we wont give up as many. Remember that the Packers and Bears have excellent Defenses and we shredded them as much as they shredded us. Hell we put up double the points on the Bears D than the Packers did.

He has valid points. BUT I think the fact that we were still "in" both games shows that the "D" has something going.

BUT - If we lose Drew - we are ****ed!!

RANKINGS

Well again with these ratings they mean nothing... We have played 3 really good teams... Won 2 outta three of those games, and should have won the other.. Our main concern and it seems I say this every year is the dam INJURY BUG, seems to bite us every year, If we can hold on win some of these easier games coming up we should be in good shape... Remember we play the good teams well. But when it comes to those games we should win we have a letdown, we can't afford that right now... We need to win these next 2 games for sure... Jacksonville well who knows what they are gonna put on the field, and of course the Panthers which have some confidence in their team right now... But both of these teams are very beatable by us...

You had me until you said the bears offense are not slouch ... Bro, they are terrible!!! (They got lucky as hell against atlanta) Agreed with the rest though --- In the end, this stuff is interesting to read (which is why we are all on this thread), but ultimately it doesn't mean jack. We're a good team that can turn great if our D plays more consistently.
