Defense....

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We are a bend don't break defense. I anticipate the middle giving up lots of yardage. We have now shown the ability to slow down the opposition closte to our goal line. Really, that's what a lot of people on ...

Really, that's what a lot of people on the board think is the recipe for winning with our high powered offense. I agree that this is ok for now, at least until Payton returns. We will have a full draft next year(I think) for Spags to get a few more critical parts.
It's definitely better than 0-4!

This is what continues to confuse me as well. And it's not even on blitzes. We rush three or four, yet there are guys that have no one within 15 yards of the receiver. That tells me there is still major confusion with the scheme. But then again, I don't know squat, it's just my best guess...

Re: Defense....

Ok the ugly question...


HOW in the HELL did Jenkins catch Jackson? From not only behind but at an angle. Who was SUPPOSED to be covering Jackson? Oh yea... Patrick and Harper all over that air.

Jackson 40 time 4.6s
Jenkins 40 time 4.55s

Jackson was tired from all the success he had against that Defense.

Kudos to Jenkins for not quitting like THE REST OF THE DEFENSE DID. But being the only person to not quit isn't as much of a testament to Jenkins as it is to the other 10 on the field.

Re: Defense....

Well one its a division game our games always go down to the final play. Two both teams are in a must win situation. So they will play harder. And I think every team is playing us extra "hard" "motivated" whatever because they are trying to keep us outta the playoffs. Since the superbowls in our house this season.

Re: Defense....

corey white is trash... almost as bad as shanle. I wont write him off yet because he is a rook but in every game he gets burnt at lease 2 or 3 times.

Re: Defense....

It has become painfully obvious what our defense is going to be this year. Give up all the yards on first and second down and stop them on third down when they get to the red zone. We actually held TB to 4 of 12 on 3rd down. Sprinkle in some "hope we stop them and make a play". Thats our defense this year.

Re: Defense....

Defense is still not good and it scares me when they are on the field trying to protect a lead. They just can't seem to stop the big plays. At least our offense has been playing good.

Jackson is probably still suffering from that injury... knee I think. And he has never been a "burner," but more a Colston type receiver. Also, Jenkins was running toward him, even though from an angle like you said, and Jackson bobbled the pass a little which probably affected his acceleration after the catch.

Nevertheless, it was a good effort from Jenkins, but it certainly doesn't erase the fact that he has been mostly garbage this whole season.
