Reasons for optimism regarding our defense.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Defense is playing well, but there inability to shut the opposing offense down on third downs is keeping the other teams in these games. 3rd downs need to be their focus....

We still aren't bringing the heavy rush on 3rd downs. Take the lucky catch by smith, we had 7 guys on the line and only brought 5 and we almost got to Newton. Bringing 5 isn't bringing heat, that's an even matchup. At least bring 6 to out number the blockers on the line. Look at every other 3rd down conversion and we dropped in coverage instead of bringing pressure. If we're going to get burned at least let me see the QB on the ground!

There all going to be tough games. The elague wanted parity & they have got it. Teams are coming out of nowhere & the leite teams are hard pressed sometimes.

DOes anyone think the NE Patsies are a bad team?? But they lost to the Bills...

Its relative at this point.

We cant tackle for them - I hope they are almost as good as they sometimes are & not 1/2 as bad as they look when they are really bad!!
