Ha!

That why the Saints were giving up TDs late in games. To allow Sproles to get a chance at the record don't you know.

I think it interesting that the Saints' average starting field position was unchanged from 2010, starting at about the Saints' 28. Sproles' contribution to the return game clearly made the team better, despite the increased number of touchbacks.

However, our defense allowing so many yards created a lot of downed punts inside the 20 and 10, giving the Saints a great deal of stadium to cover.

That surprises me. Sproles had some big returns, but he also had several 25 yard returns that gave us the ball at the 18. One area we really improved is holding by the KR team. Very rarely were we pushed back.

I thought we were starting way back there so that *Brees could pad that record he doesn't deserve, same as when he took the delay of game against ATL
