Yep, Jackson may be done in the NFL period. What a great addition that was, doesn't suit up once, and guy failed his third drug test......

Re: Week 1: Redskins-Saints matchup

Have they lost 2 of 3 Safeties, one a starter the other the backup, so that basically they are starting the 4rth guy on the depth chart?

I read this online at their paper and some of their fans are absolutely delusional- saying things like our front seven is going to destroy them. You donít need a good secondary; you only need a good front seven. I am not sure how starting a safety 4rth on the depth chart can be considered not to have a effect. It may be able to be masked against most teams, but I am not sure their starters were going to stop us so I canít imagine this improves the situation. Anyone know the talent of the Dejon Gomes?

BTW- I for one am actually glad Jackson is suspended. I think he probably would have been their best option at safety

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Very true. Another sad waste of talent. The guy is good, but...

A lot of whispers about this, but since the tragedy that happened to 21, we have not been able to find any continuity in the Defensive backfield.

I don't think anybody thinks that stopping the Saints is something you can do at the drop of a hat. What we are hoping for is that the pressure on the sides from Rak and Kerrigan can force Brees to make decisions quicker than he would like and possibly lead to a turnover or two. The front 7 honestly is the most talented for us in well over a decade, and very deep.

To be fair we had Mike Bell and Reggie Bush in the back field.
Defense recorded ZERO sacks.
Our secondary was decimated in that game. I think 3 of 4 starters were missing. I was there and we should have lost, but suisham missed the FG. The great thing was as they're readying for the kick all the fans around me are going- who dat who dat who dat going home sad today. You could have heard a pin drop when he missed. It was a gimme kick too. Drew drives us for the tie, OT we win it. It ws great.

Re: Week 1: Redskins-Saints matchup

Oh and the best was I was asked by one of their fans what I paid for the ticket and I told the guy 25 bucks, lmao! It was last minute and I was visiting my GF in NJ so I didn't even have any of my Saints stuff with me, unfortunately. I couldn't pass up 25.00 per ticket though

Good luck with that... Have you watched much tape on Brees?
He spends the off season working on his reaction time.

His read/process/deliver (quickest delivery) time is one of the fastest in the league.
