Game thoughts....Why it will be a long season

Once again the same thing I said after last week our poor defense is still poor, but the biggest problem this season is the O Line. Drew is not having a chance to settle in and it is taking him out of his game. The worst part of it is something we caught a glimpse of, the fact that this pressure and hurries and contact will eventually catch up to Drew and I fear an injury.

Even with an average D we have been able to out score opponets, the biggest change this year is QB protection.

The down-side of a player holding out because of contract negotiations and not being in TC to get acclimated to new players!

Re: Game thoughts....Why it will be a long season

Why it won't...
Because there are no more Cam Newtons or RG3 spread QB's with blazing speed on our schedule.

We knew our D needed time to adjust to a new system

We'll get Greer, Patrick and Henderson back soon.

Why you may be right...
Our O-line looks much worse than simply losing Nicks. Something else is F'd up there. Strief and Bushrod look much worse than years past.

Luckily we'll probably have a high draft pick next year and can replace Bushrod... Or a linebacker... Or a CB... Or a safety... We're a mess!

We don't need a high draft pick to do that. And we don't need a CB or a safety. We need OT/DE/DT/OLB's.

Saints still have to play Vick and the Iggles.

Week 16, it won't matter, we'll have clinched the 2nd seed and play Daniel.

Re: Game thoughts....Why it will be a long season

Hmm, interesting...defense and O-line suck. The same exact two areas where we have specialty coaches either suspended, or assistant coaches who are covering for other suspended coaches and assistant coaches who are suspended. Beats me why that would happen like that. I think that getting those assistant coaches back might do more help in the short term, this season. I think we need an OT very badly, but we won a Super Bowl with the weak and raggedy OT's we have now, went 13-3 with the raggedy OT's we have now. More urgently we need our O-line coach back to coaching the O-line full-time more than anything, which happens week 7.
