Spagnulo had better forget about who was signed to what FA contract, and who was picked Round 1 and get guys who can get after it!

The FA signing of Bunkley is starting to look like a gem; he really was disruptive on that goal-line stand and I think you live with the mistakes but you match him with Hicks!
Yes sir! Take Ellis out of the line up. In the secondary replace Jenkins with Quaddus at FS play Jenkins at SS rotating with Harper just to see if Jenkins can play at all if not trade him now, please!!

The guy is going to pull out all the stops.
i would have agreed earlier in the season. i think he is getting into a game by game rut. he is not making many changes during the game and seems unwilling to reverse his moves he made for a few players. front office?

i was thinking the same thing with jenkins. i would look to the draft for a solid tall cb with ball skills to move into the fs position. there will be som nice fa possible out there.


on paper this defense should not be sucking eggs as bad as they are. but they leave a lot to be desired.

the point i like is the time the defense stays on the field. the saints are still looking for a ground game to eat up the clock in the second half. been looking for that phase of the offense for years. but that point does not explain the poor play in the first half

Re: Why Is the Defense So Bad?

Jenkins has pretty much been a disaster at Safety; with his size, is it not to late to do a reclamation and move him to either strong safety or right cornerback and letting him play the slot in nickel/dime packages?

Re: Why Is the Defense So Bad?

And Akiem Hicks, if Ellis is not going to be signed again as a FA, wouldn't it be prudent to allow him more time to develop?

Re: Why Is the Defense So Bad?

It so embarrassing that the talking head shows are saying to take the QB facing the Saints each and everyweek...

Where's the heart?!?

Re: Why Is the Defense So Bad?

This is HISTORICALLY BAD...

Whether you're in Harper's, Ellis', Smith's, Shanle's, Robinson's, Jenkins' Camp(s) or not, we all can agree this is the worst defense we've ever seen...

Can Darren Sharper at least walk?

Darren Sharper in 2010 was worse than any DB we had on the roster.

I'd imagine he hasn't gotten any better.

Re: Why Is the Defense So Bad?

Wondering if we'll see more rotation of the defensive line with the "altitude factor"?!?

Re: Why Is the Defense So Bad?

Hicks is really lookin lively on the line...

I know he got smashed on the double team, but he's really battling and starting to be disruptive...
