Struggling defenses face off when Chiefs visit Saints

METAIRIE — Through the first two games of the season, the defenses of the New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs have been mirror images of one another.

But at this point, they don’t like what they’re seeing.

The Saints and Chiefs have each allowed 75 points, the most in the NFL, in their 0-2 starts. Both have had plenty of trouble stopping opponents in giving up 461.0 and 377.5 total yards, respectively, and they have just one takeaway between them.

Which is why Chiefs second-year coach Romeo Crennel, whose team takes on the Saints on Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, sees a little bit of his team in the one it’ll face this week.

“I think our team is similar to their team defensively,” Crennel said Wednesday. “Teams have been able to move the ball and score points, and we haven’t been able to stop them enough.”

Similarly, it’s been a hot topic of conversation for Saints fans.

So who wins is the team with the defense that sucks the least on Sunday? That's encouraging.

Why even put either defense on the field? Lets just have an offensive slug fest.

Yeah! BOTH offenses on the field, but the defensive offense gets a different colored football and Drew can try to line-drive it into the OTHER offenses players, thereby distracting the blockers and giving OUR guys a chance to block and tackle. And wouldn't Jahri Evans make a decent run-stuffer in the middle? Don't say you wouldn't, JUST ONCE, like to see Mark Ingram light up some hapless receiver hung out to dry by his QB? You know that dude can probably hit like a LB

Hey, I know it sounds crazy, but I mean, given the yards/points we're giving up now, I'm game for any kind of creative solution and that would be just plain fun to watch :bng:
