METAIRIE — Brian de la Puente watches video of the New Orleans Saints' first four games and can only shake his head.



He sees Mark Ingram plow into the line and gain only 2 yards.

He looks as Pierre Thomas can only wiggle for a few yards when there's miscommunication about a cutback lane.

And each time, de la Puente, the team's center, sees just inches between a successful run play and one that has helped keep the Saints as the 26th-best run team in the NFL.

"It's not an assignment thing," de la Puente said. "Everyone knows who we got, who we're supposed to block, what the scheme is supposed to do. It's close. You see it on film and it's kind of like, ‘Ahhh!' You have that reaction a lot. You're like, ‘Man, that was wide open if this happened.' You've just got to get rid of the ifs and the shoulda, woulda, couldas and just got to get out there and execute and get on the same page."

One thing to say it Brian. Quite another to actually DO it though.

Sounds like he's throwing the RB's under the bus, IMO

Re: Saints confident in ground attack

If we were confident in our run game we would be much more balanced on offense.
