I don't know...

Some teams seem to be playing good defense. So I don't think that is much of an excuse.

I am not buying that its the reason.

There are plenty of teams playing good defense so its not an excuse.

Our defense is exactly what it has been really one good year they had a lot of take aways and besides that they couldn't stop the run and teams could throw on us. Our secondary though does show signs of progression I am liking that but our DE's and OLB's are horrible.

That may be the case but I'd bet we haven't had even one of those by the looks of our defense.

I hear there's this company that makes dolls that look a lot like my avatar and they are made out of silicone. The Saints could use some of those to teach these guys how to tackle, LOL

Men without tackle. Good grief - whatever next? Eunuchs?
