Again I disagree; the first two games the tackling was better and the DBs were doing a fantastic job...
I thought the starters were limited or out for the first two weeks...

Some played an entire 1/2 in the second game of the preseason.

Roman harper...is he scared to tackle someone?? Why does he constantly dive at legs? I am willing to cut Robinson a little slack considering this was his first game back in awile but damn. When is this going to be addressed?
Seeing as curtis lofton got hurt early in the game with a sprained ankle and he's basically our defensive leader right now, I wasn't very surprised. We'll be back come regular reason. I guarantee it. We'll look just like the pats game.

I was not reffering to LB's. I'm talking about DB's.

When you've been dominating on defense on the road every game so far and you're not being worked out the same way as you normally would be in the regular season, the coaches probably aren't gonna want their players(including safeties and corner backs and such)working so hard. Just look at what happened to chris chamberlain. Imagine if that had been Curtis Lofton. We don't need to work so hard that we risk losing people out for the season..... Even if it means missing tackles.

When you think about the fact that the saints(and pretty much every other nfl team) could care less about winning in the preseason, it didn't surprise me at all that the defense didn't give it its all.

The defense was disappointing that game, but it was nothing compared to how GOOD the defense looked against the pats and cardinals. The defense is not what will carry us. The offense. And in the jags game, we didn't have the complete set had of our offensive starters for most during the game. Like I said. We'll be back. Sorry with DB/LB. I missed that part in the thread.

Tackling drill:

The person with the ball has $100 bills stapled to the back of his jersey... You have to take them from the front.

or

Make a tackling vest with Goodells face where the numbers are and tell the defense.. "PUNISH GOODELL".
