Where are we misfiring?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We have been lucky to have some dramatic comebacks lately. Not today. Where are we misfiring and where are we falling short?...

No luck today and no Defense either really if Freemon was anything decent it would have been worse.

Turnover ratio, redzone offense, playing of the road three weeks in a row, D giving up the big play.

Like I said in the other thread, we're getting whipped up front. Our O-line is mediocre to bad and our D-line is greatly underachieving.

Success starts up front but unfortunately failure does as well.

+1. Both lines are overrated.

Yep. Unfortunately the lines are only the core of the problem. Our linebackers are just pursuing tacklers, and not very good at that. Our defensive coordinator lacks imagination, and today our offense did as well. Our looks are stale. The run attempts up the middle are pitiful and foreseeable. We've got so many offensive weapons we're forgetting to use some of them.

But if we could apply pressure and get Drew some time we'd maybe be able to get a lead and hold on to it again. It's been a while.

And our coach won't move out of the way when a play comes his way. WTF?
