Handwerger: Reality sets in on lost season for Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Maybe taking the week of the bye off, at least for the healthy, wasn't such a good idea...

Re: Handwerger: Reality sets in on lost season for Saints

either the defense has our playbook or our recievers can't get out of there own way. drew had plenty of time to get on rythum, there was sheet coverage on our recievers. its a common sight everytime we come across a team that has decent corners and at least one good defensive end. thats why i agree we will be dominant one week and horrific another. and i mentioned nothing about our pourous defensive. getting better will be a flip of a coin. everything goes for positive yards no matter if we hit them in the backfield or at the line of scrimmige our defense just falls back with the force of a runner. there may be to much baggage in some minds to produce how they are paid to do. theres just no intensity.

GO NEW ORLEANS

I'm not sure we even have a defense that can keep us in the game when the offense is flying high and firing on all cyllinders! The rules still say we have to kick off to the other team after we score.

Does anyone here think that Nicks covered up for deficiencies at center and tackle?
