I might get destroyed for this

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We gave up 319 passing yards. We gave up 102 rushing yards. Sadly, it WAS an improvement....

Re: I might get destroyed for this

Our D was playing patty cake most of the time, i seen a few times certain players were just jogging in place while the receiver catches the ball right next to them and they just stand and hope no one see's them not doing anything.
I was disgusted most of the game, defense showed some signs of a pulse but i think a lot of them just want to get their check and go home.

True our defense looked stupid and slow , but sorry, blame it on the D all you want,but what about the missed field goal, or our offense getting 4 downs on the 5 and choking. Sorry both sides of the ball are sucking.

Re: I might get destroyed for this

Yeah our D isn't good but look at it this way

D allowed 21 points in first half

D allowed 7 points in second half

Sproles drops a crucial 3rd and 2 routine pass, that would have won us the game, Hartley kicks the go ahead score then misses it when it goes back 5 yards

As much as you may want to blame the D, our O has got to score more than that, passing 3 times on green bays 2 yard line and coming away with 3 points is unacceptable, our O dropped 10 passes atleast and sproles pretty much screwed us twice, the refs just didn't see one of them

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Re: I might get destroyed for this

High points ...

Bunkley had a big play at the goal line pushing the guard backward and forcing that fumble. It nearly turned the game around for us. Now we need some of that push other than when we're backed up to the goalline!

Tackling was better at times and we seemed to hit harder. Guys were playing hard on defense, but we need more speed in our front 7. We're just a few steps too slow as it seems like Rodgers can outrun any of our front seven. Lofton can tackle but I think we miss Vilma's quickness.

Greer also had a bad game, James Jones schooled him and he just looked slow and not himself. I'm wondering if he is still not at 100%.

I think we will need to draft more defensive players. Tip - probably no need to look at any players from West Virginia or Baylor.
