NEW ORLEANS — Saints safety Roman Harper summed up his defense’s play in a 40-32 loss to the Redskins with three words: “Just bad ball.”

That’s a good way to explain the unit’s output Sunday, when two rookies turned in sterling debuts and the Saints made costly mistakes.

In their first starts, Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III and running back Alfred Morris paced the visitors to 464 yards of offense, outdoing New Orleans’ high-powered attack and trailing for only 21 seconds.

“It’s going to be a good year for (Griffin),” safety Malcolm Jenkins said.

Griffin connected on 19 of 26 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns, and Morris, a sixth-round draft pick, ran 28 times for 96 yards and two touchdowns. But while both were impressive in their debuts, Harper was more focused on his unit’s errors.

“It’s about us,” Harper said. “It’s not about any other team. It never will be with the talent we have here and the home-crowd advantage. It’s about us. Give credit to Washington. They won the game today and outplayed us. They definitely did that, but at the end of the day we have to be better.”

He used three words but should have paid more attention to these three words "Do your job"

Sometimes you just have to get punched in the mouth to get your **** together. The team has to put all the outside and off-season issues behind them and focus on football.

I can actually see why Jenkins would say Griffin is going to have a good year, maybe if we had someone on the D would have man-up yesterday Griffin might not got off to his good year Malcom, maybe it could possibly start with you. Probably not!!!

Re: Saints defense plays “bad ball” in loss to Redskins

I know I make a lot of people on here upset about my feelings towards Roman..But I Just Think We Need To Move On...I Think Jenkins can switch to the SS and if we can find a FS who can play coverage we would shut down the pass game better than recent seasons...I really appreciate what he's done for the organization but he just gets picked on too much on passing situations
