I'll tell u why the saints are struggling. We act like we don't trust our running backs. We are too predictable in the passing game. And because even when we blitz, we don't get any pressure on the qb's. You can't win a game with three starting running backs running the ball 20 times between the three of them.. Now lets go saints GROUND AND POUND !!!!

20 carries is a good day for our guys.
We don't control the line of scrimmage on either side of the ball.
That will always allow teams to hang around and try to get lucky at the end.

All anyone wants to do is point the finger our the offense.

I'm tired of our subpar man to man coverage. I'm sick of seeing us chasing people down in sports center. Dumb down defensive playbook or something. IDK

Im tired of the Saints tipping their hand with which running back is behind Drew, every team has to know by now when Ingram in game looks for run. I'm also tired of GW lack of blitz and the terrible 10 yd Gary Gibbesque cusion the DB's are given WRs that don't deserve it

Why doesn't Sean still run the ghost motion play that they used a lot back in 06 with Deuce and Reggie, put PT or Ingram in the backfield and send Sproles in motion, its worth a shot at least
