Saints red zone performance .....

There is no reason our PPG couldn't be league leading if we actual put it in the end zone instead of 3 pointers. The all important 3rd down conversion stat is great but but I feel SP & clan are fully aware of the need to punch it in to get another super bowl title. The positive is there is no reason red zone play can't be corrected with a quickness, be it play calling or whatever as the talent is there & have a running game to let DB be DB . I say play even more up tempo in the red & do it often....I am basically sick of the FG's & hope all that changes this weekend.

Best play called was Drew's hurry-up offense that punched one in at Carolina.

I want more of that.

First of all Welcome Soldano, your not the only one who is tired of this. Yes we do need to take care of this before we lose more than just a game. It might just kill us in the post season. I hope than can take care of this sooner than later

To say we have possibly the best two tackles in the league with nicks and Evans, our run blocking is pretty poor when we get inside the 10 yard line, agreed let Drew use the quick huddle tempo, it killed Houston on the last drive when he called all the plays himself and it recently beat Carolina with 50 seconds remaining, it keeps the defense severely on their heels.

Spread em out, give it to Sproles inside the 10. Bring in Ingram for play action inside the 5

It's very hard for a back to score when there are no holes to run through. Our Oline sucks.............that's right I said it. We flat out suck!!!!!!

It's amazing we're 4-1 with a crappy o-line. Imagine if we had a better one, we'd probably be 4-1.
