A Little Concern

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ok, I hate to say this, really....and am even hesitant to say it....but I want feedback, so I'm gonna say it anyway. I watched the replay last night of the Lions/Saints game. Truly, if the Lions had not shot themselves ...

A Little Concern

Ok, I hate to say this, really....and am even hesitant to say it....but I want feedback, so I'm gonna say it anyway. I watched the replay last night of the Lions/Saints game. Truly, if the Lions had not shot themselves in the foot with all of the dumb penalties, it would have been another game. Our defense allowed wayyyyy too many plays to happen. A couple of blown coverages....some miscommunication. I just hope that we've corrected some of those errors, and are ready for the "airing the ball out" that we're gonna get from Stafford. They converted too many 3rd downs, for sure. We do NOT need to underestimate these guys like we did Seattle last season. (Or maybe we were just that crappy last season....but I think a lot of that was mental, too).

Ok, I said it. What do you guys/gals think?

I think our D has steadily improved since then. We may have given up some big plays in games....but look at the outcomes: they have mostly turned into field goals! I'm not saying they are not a dangerous team, but I trust in these coaches and the level of preparation they undertake!

oh yeah. the offense line will need a mistake free game. the saints defense will bend but limiting the number of breaks will be key.

this by no means will be a cake walk.

I think we need to show up ready to play football and not stumble out of the gate.
If we get out front on these guys we will bury them.
I don't think I could take a tit-for-tat and flip a coin to see who gets the last posession type game.
Steady doses of PT/Ivory/Sproles and wash that down with some Colston/Graham/Moore.
35/25: 29/35 passing for 350 3TD's and 25 rushes for 160 and 2TD's.
That should do the trick.

They only converted 2 of 11 3rd downs. It seemed 2nd down was when they did their damage.

I think we need to hit them right between the eyes first off, just like we did the Panthers last week. Touchdown three plays from scrimmage. Hit them REAL hard and hit them often. NO MERCY! I want the Saints to be accused of running up the score again!!!!

Saints need to get up by at least 10 points ASAP and make them one dimensional.

Definitely reason for concern
They really handed us the game. That is not to say we would not have stepped up anyway, but...

I was very confident last year, and I think Det is better. The difference is the dome

we have no running game, we are one dimensional.

i watched it last night, also. That was a rough patch for the Lions, and coach has eliminated most of that out of control play, the personal fouls.

Here's to a good game, should be fun. Wish I was there.

I was thinking the same thing about the LOINS'S penalties and I know they're thinking the same thing. I also don't like spending so much attention on MEGATRON and still giving up the same amount of yards to someone else. WHATS THE DIFFERENCE???? I think we will jump out fast and force a few of punts from LOINS and they will be in catch up mode after that so we may give up a lot of passing yards, but the lions will likely be playing desperate football come tomorrow!!!! LETS GEAUX SAINTS!!!!!!!
