METAIRIE, La. ― Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is aggressive.

This we know for sure, just watching him send wave after wave of extra defenders at the quarterback.

And despite getting only 20 sacks this season, opponents are noticing that the pressure is having an effect on their quarterbacks.

“Albeit the sack numbers aren’t up the level that they’ve been in the past, but they are affecting the quarterback,” Atlanta coach Mike Smith said.

Then again, Smith isn’t one who buys into using the sack as an accurate metric for deciding how a team is playing on defense.

“The important part of rushing the passer in my mind is affecting the quarterback, knowing where the launch point is, trying to get him off that launch point, disrupting the timing of the throws by getting him off that point …,” Smith said.

I'm hoping (and praying) we see a different approach from GW than the all-blitz, all-the-time we've been seeing.

True test for our defense this week.

They better do more than aim. They better get to Skid Britches. If we can't sack him, knock him down, or hurry him, we will be in trouble. We can not let him sit back there and have all the time he wants. If we do, he will pick our secondary apart, especially if they continue to give 15 yards cusion on every pass play.

The Falcons have struggled at LT this season... hopefully Will will be able to take full advantage of it.
