Run Defense vs. Arizona
 
Didn't like our run defense at all against the Cardinals.
Don't want to hear, "they'll get it fixed." Again and again.
It's the personnel not the scheme.

The worst part is you'll hear all week how Alphonso Smith is a sleeper this year, based on his performance against the Saints.
Then in 5 days he rush for 5 on 7 carries against the Chiefs and we'll know how bad our front 7 is.

I'm not even going to say anything bad our team yet. I do feel your pain man, it does seem year in and year out. So I do see where you are going, but I'm not jumping on that ship yet.

Yeah, I am not going to judge how our team will play until the 3rd preseason game (4th for us).
I saw good things from a lot of the D players we all have been talking about (JR, Wilson, Lofton). Also #75 Walker had a great game in the 2nd half, he may be a sleeper DT.

I don't know if I just key in on Shanle but I always see him getting blocked out or misreading the play completely. Just in this pre-season game I saw 4 plays which he was out of position or blocked out of the play.

oh, please don't get me mixed up in the hangin group. I am nowhere near that. Just wanted to state i could see where he was coming from.

1 week of practice and installing a new defense and we're already hearing this? Amazing.

SaintsRule11 08-05-2012 11:25 PM

I would say so far this defense - although this was only one irrelevant preseason game - reminds me a little more of the 2009 defense, giving up some big plays but playing better in the red zone and getting turnovers when needed.

i personaly saw alot of good in the starters . an int. some penatration on the line. thought lofton looked real good. and something u dont see a whole lot of defensive players actually wrapping up when they tackel instead using their shoulder pads to knok guys down

Maybe we were looking at two different games. I saw much of the same old no-wrap tackling like much of last year's D.
