Ok real fans....

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm a real fan ... a real embarrassed real fan ... Sure we can get better. But we've got a long way to go, and that's not what any of us expected going into this season. Crap, I'm as guilty ...

Sure we can get better. But we've got a long way to go, and that's not what any of us expected going into this season. Crap, I'm as guilty as anyone of thinking we were primed for a playoff run. I sure don't think that anymore ...

Yeah Morgan looked good n preseason but then again it was preseason he doesn't seem very confident out there... N the drops..

Where's Tuck? Strahan? Osi?

We have not had a DECENT pass rusher since 2001...

Re: Ok real fans....

This is looking like it's going to be a real long season. The defense is as bad as I've ever seen. The lack of pass rush is ridiculous. This is really the cause of the rest of our problems on defense, can't expect any DB to cover for 5+ seconds every down. I'm going to hold out the slightest bit of hope that maybe the run option offense is our kryptonite and we'll fare better against more traditional offenses. If not, our pass rushing woes may be solved by a high draft pick (Jarvis Jones, cough cough).

Well, we played the two most elusive QB's in the world. We only play 1 more QB with that kind of maneuverability over the next 14 games.

How many running QBs do we have left?

That possibility seems to really put our D in a funk... We stop the Offense until the QB holds it for longer than 3s or keeps it and runs.

We have faced two QBs that are very dynamic.

Exactly what I was saying. I think we only have 2 more games against these type of QB's. We face Cam again and Vick. We'll see what our D-line can do when they're not wetting the bed worried about the QB running every time he drops back. The struggles against mobile QB's is the only thing I'm holding out hope for. At least I'm trying to convince myself this...

We have Vick left, and to a lesser extent Rodgers and Romo.

Everyone else is fairly traditional.

Ohh, I forgot, Cam again, but we'll have clinched the number two seed by then so it won't matter
