New Orleans Saints defense gains upperhand again in Wednesday practice

It seems like each day brings the same news about the New Orleans Saints defense which fans don’t mind hearing. Not only are they good, but they are improving each day.
Quarterback Drew Brees and the offense on the other hand had a less than spectacular day with poor communication, routes, and dropped passes from usual sure hands in the likes of tight end Jimmy Graham.

Running back Chris Ivory lost even more ground today in his roster spot as he fumbled the ball for a second day in a row on a running play. Fellow running back Pierre Thomas also had a fumble caused by a strip from safety Roman Harper, but Thomas was able to recover.

Even wide receiver Joe Morgan had issues with Brees having to explain to him which route he was supposed to run on a certain play. The constant bright spot on offense seemed to be wide receiver Andy Tanner and running back Travaris Cadet who had another solid practice.

Brees attributed the offensive struggles to just what he calls the “dog days” of camp where focus wains a bit. While the offense is struggling with the “dog days” the defense is living in the “glory days”.

Linebacker Jonathan Casillas had another great practice where he read a route perfectly and jumped a Brees pass, intercepting the ball. Casillas is proving to have a great camp and if he can stay healthy, will become the player the Saints coaches knew he could be.

I am going to personally hunt down GW next year if we end up with a top 5 defense this year.

There is a difference between coaching players and designing schemes. It looks like we have a coach now.

I would be lying if I said I wasn't starting to get a tad concerned about the offense. Love hearing the good news about the D but would also like to hear something about the O other than picks and fumbles.

We going to find out something in the next 2 preseason games on what the offense is doing.

I think the offenses woes in camp is the emergence of a defense like we never seen before.

You got to remember all the 1st round picks that is fielded on that defense.

It takes longer for the offense to get into a rhythm. Defense is just read and react. We will be fine by the 3rd Preseason game. Now, if the Offense does not excel during the 3rd Preseason game ill start to worry.
