Saints lose to rookie QBs if defense/ST scores TDs

http://jacksonville.com/opinion/blog...Times-Union%29

Being a rookie quarterback isn't easy in the NFL and especially not against a defense like the one Saints defensive coordinator Greg Williams runs.

Consequently it's no surprise the New Orleans Saints have faced rookie quarterbacks nine times in the past two years and allowed them 2 passing touchdowns and intercepted them 15 times.

Still, their record against the rookies is 6-3. So how did the Saints lose three times to rookies while allowing those kinds of numbers?

Defense and special teams.

bring out the dogs and let 'em smell blod. Send the house against Gabbert as we did against the Bears.

I smell a Porter pick-6 as a welcome back present to us.
