Couldn't agree more. To say that our offense has been any better than our defense is to ignore reality. They sputter and sputter, and when the 4th quarter comes and we're down 15, they start to pile up cheap yards and points against prevent defenses.

Re: Question for the Bandwagon Fans & Brees Blamers!

Yes the offense looks bad. A lot of that is because we're spoiled but a lot of it because these guys are so much better than this. Colston is the biggest surprise to me and now Moore has the dropsies. How many TD passes have they dropped? I can think of at least three.

But we're still scoring so at least there's that.

I didn't see either game, just the boxscore since I was overseas. But am I right in seeing that Sproles hasn't even had a single carry yet this year? WTF? How does that happen?

Yeah, it's a little weird, he has gotten the ball, kinda, but they have been throwing to him, even lining him up as a wide receiver. I thought they pitched it out to him at some point, like a toss and he ran with it, but maybe not, maybe that was a pass too. But yeah, they have not been handing it off to him in the backfield so far.

Sproles has gotten a couple runs, but mainly screens and returns is where he has been utilized

He hasn't had any runs. He has zero carries on this season.

How many times have we seen the Saints lose games because they had a lead and went into the prevent defense? I am sure we all have heard the saying, "...the only thing the prevent defense does is prevent you from winning!'

So telling me that the Saints got "cheap yards and points" when the opposition goes into a prevent defense is a load of crap!

Tebow doesn't deserve to be in the same sentance with Brees.
