Congratulations on a good season.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Your QB and TE and WR's are really good. So many big tall guys with speed. I really like the TE. He is huge with good hands. Brees was always good in my city. I figured he would be good ...

Smile Congratulations on a good season.

Your QB and TE and WR's are really good. So many big tall guys with speed. I really like the TE. He is huge with good hands. Brees was always good in my city. I figured he would be good for you. Didn't know he would be this good. Your coach is good too.

The defense now that could use some work. It's a little too easy to move it on you guys. I think the Super Bowl year your defense was better. At least it appeared better to me.

How is the Superdome since they repaired it from Katrina BTW? Any big changes? I was in there once pre Katrina. But not since.

Pretty spot on. The defense was prob the same, except we forced a lot more turnovers which disguised quite a few problems.

We have a good DC now so I expect our defense to improve, both in talent and fundamentals. We missed a lot of tackles and there were too many games with players who looked confused and out of position.

Congrats on your good year as well. Interesting it is how Harbaugh shook hands at the end of the contest against the Giants.

Yeah .. our defense needs work. We're hoping Spags will fix that for us. I got a feeling our defense won't be as accommodating to you next year.

Better secondary --> Sharper

Better pass rush --> McCrady (in the playoffs)

In answer to your question about the dome, it's totally renovated. Aside from its outer shell, I'd say completely different, vastly modernized.
Congrats to you on your season as well. See you next year, in our house. And hopefully again in the playoffs.

Congrats to the 9er's also SD49er.

Like Danno said, we have a new D Coord, so we should see an improvement.

In a weird way, I'm kinda glad to see the 9er's get back to the level you guys as fans are used to. The defense is one of, if not the best in the NFL, IMO. I think Alex Smith is coming into his own. He just needs a little more key players/play makers at WR.

Thanks for joining.

Yeah our WR's are pretty poor. Other than the TE Vernon Davis we don't have a lot of true threats. You guys have a lot of speed and playmakers out there. I think Crabtree is a bit overrated on our side having watched him for several years. He's slow and does not separate.

Congrats to you also!! You guys do need some play makers on Offense. I know ya'll lost your 2 starting receivers but obviously depth is an issue. IMO the only real play makers on the O is Gore and Davis. Sorry, I am not an Alex Smith fan.
