OFFICIAL GAMEDAY THREAD: Texans at Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; More than one championship team has had a losing record in the preseason. Hell, more than one has had a losing or even record the first half of the season. Keep the faith Who Dats, the race hasn't even started ...

C'mon Halo. You knew our defense needed time to gel under a new coach and a new scheme. Thats why I was glad we had the extra pre-season game.

Our defense looked bad for 1 game, against a zone blocking team that we didn't gameplan for.

The NFL network guys (Ross Tucker??) mentioned that if you don't gameplan against a zone blocking team, you can get gashed pretty good against those stretch plays. If you spend a week preparing for it, its not that much harder to defend. He did agree that our tackling was surprisingly poor though.

I wouldn't worry just yet.

Part of me wants to drop 50 on them just for the entertainment value that would occur on 610 here, then again it would be even funnier for all the sheeps in town to crown them Preseason Champs only to see Shaub go down in week 4 and the Titans were to win the division

Re: OFFICIAL GAMEDAY THREAD: Texans at Saints

I always consider the Texans in preseason to be kinda like a rehearsal for the Falcons games. Our games with both those teams tend to be close, and have that 7-0, 7-7, 14-7, 14-14, 14-17, 17-17 type of symmetry to them, where it's always tied or close to tied, and nobody ever really runs away with the game. The Texans and Falcons offenses kinda look similar sometimes. Texans have a better defense. So, good practice for the Failcowns.

After drinking heavily last night, I have since changed my mind.

Seriously, I think the biggest potential detriment is the loss of Sean Payton for the year. I'm a huge believer that he makes the magic happen.

Hopefully Houston's front 7 is all playing... should be an exciting matchup for Drew and our offensive line. They are stacked.

Re: OFFICIAL GAMEDAY THREAD: Texans at Saints

I'll be there. First time back in the Dome since 2005 - the preseason game prior to Katrina, in fact. Frankly, I haven't been able to afford tix since we we started winning!

Sure, it's just the preseason, but I'm really looking forward to it. It's been waayy too long since I enjoyed a Saints game at the Dome!
