I might get destroyed for this

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'll take my lumps- but I thought our D played better today. We still have a very very long way to go, but I thought we played better as a unit. Maybe if this season is lost our D can ...

I might get destroyed for this

I'll take my lumps- but I thought our D played better today. We still have a very very long way to go, but I thought we played better as a unit. Maybe if this season is lost our D can learn the system. I did think I saw improvement though. We ned DLINE help though, clearly

Greer and Robinson can't even cover slants

No pressure what so ever, brilliant pick by robinson, but got picked on all day and on the very next drive after his play

Dropped passes killed us, Hartley just nailed his own coffin, he's gotta go, sproles f'ed up

I felt the D was better today, better for a squad lacking talent in key positions.

Re: I might get destroyed for this

Coaching decision to kick the first field goal was a terrible decision considering GB had never punted at that point, what was the worst that could happen not make it and force them to drive 98 yards but if you make it Maybe the game turns out different. No blame on the players they played their hearts out and gave everything they had except for Sedric Ellis .

Re: I might get destroyed for this

There were definitely some signs of life. Now if we can just generate some sort of pass rush. Rushing with 4 down lineman just wasn't working. And if we're going to continue to be stubborn and not make scheme adjustments, there needs to be a personnel one. We should have brought in some more speed with Wilson at end... I think it would have made an impact.

Man it's the line. The corners look bad because they are in coverage all day. You can have anyone at corner they are merely a reflection of the line. Spags d in New York had nothing special at corner. They were always burned until the line got pressure. Gut the line and fill it with speed. Young strong fast. After that we will have pro bowl corners. Guarantee. Revis can only cover an nfl receiver for so long.

Close game no blow out, Packers are a very good team. Actually gotta couple calls go our way. This was a game we could have won.
