I am feeling better about our defense and season

In Week 4 of the preseason, the Saints played the Texans in the Superdome and starters for both teams played the first half.

The Texans are picked by many to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl and the Saints won. The defense held the Texans to under 100 yds rushing and Matt Schaub to under 200 yds passing.

I know it was a pre-season game, but it shows what the defense CAN DO!!

If the defense shows no improvement by then, the Saints might as well wait on the return of Jesus Christ!!

A true optimist! You can't beat that thinking.
There were two defensive Field Generals playing for the Saints, Jonathan Vilma and Darren Sharper. These two were crucial in defensive audible adjustments and player motivation. So Sharper has been gone a while and the way it looks Vilma won't be out there any time soon. Now add a new defensive coordinator and subtract one talented head coach.
I don't know but i am with you buddy, however there is a lot to overcome this season.

The saints defense looked good vs a vanilla preseason Texans offense.

The way I see the defense is no where to go but up! Just got to get the nuances of the new scheme down pat.

I'm hoping that they look somewhat better against this weeks conventional offense.

Obviously the writers at NFL.com don't agree with you.

This game looked like a continuation of the shootout between these two teams last regular season. The score was 24-24 at halftime before the starters exited.

Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub completed an extremely sharp preseason. He was 15-of-18 for 194 yards and a score. No quarterback has looked more accurate or sharper in August.

So Matt Schuab looked good running a vanilla offense. What of it?
