Seven Saints who raised eyebrows Sunday
 
Article here.

Ingram's vision was the first thing I noticed about him. It was only 4 carries, but he did not look like that tentative runner we saw last season. Scary.

I hope Danno doesn't see slide #3. :-)

Exactly right

On his first down run I expected him to run right into oncoming defenders, but he made a split second decision which was impressive and his move after the cutback was encouraging

I think he will have a good year

While you can't draw too many conclusions from this game, the one I keep getting from it is how nothing looked bad. I only watched the 1st half and listened to the 2nd, I had to get back on the road, but I feel good about our team.

Again, this is only one game on about a week of practice....

One thing that did concern me was the second string offensive line. There seemed to be no continuity. They were getting pushed around and beat on most plays. Chase had to do a lot of scrambling and after the starters left, no running back could get anything going.

But again, that was on a weeks practice.

Cadet raised my eyebrows. It was difficult to tell him from Ivory, both have dreads, but Ivory has longer dreads. Cadet has a strong running style.

Ingram- Thats what happens when a rookie has a preseason. He looked great!
Cadet- The man looked like he was playing to end world hunger.
Lofton- Sorry Vilma lovers... This guy is a breath of fresh air.
Morestead- I just want to hug him.
Ellis- Finally off the leash
Wilson- Looked very good
Thomas- Looks like he is back to his original injury free form (sorry for hating on ya)

Ivory- What I expected
Sproles- Reminds me of Lord of the Rings when he runs with "the precious".

I watched the game again last night with no distractions and well.. Our starters looked damned good.

I could be just showing the love for my favorite team. But, the Saints looked ready to play an NFL game.

Why? I think he's a great punter.

Yes sir! Lofton looked like Vilma before all the injuries!
