Our Offense...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ivory looked good today. I would like him to get a few more touches. Ingram run hard. Loved the ground game overall, it opened up a lot of lanes for Brees and Co. O-line looked good, the Falcons D is ...

Ivory looked good today. I would like him to get a few more touches. Ingram run hard. Loved the ground game overall, it opened up a lot of lanes for Brees and Co. O-line looked good, the Falcons D is a good D overall it says a lot for us to score like we were able to, it says a whole lot.

Nobody criticized him for it. It isn't his fault it wasn't caught, but it never should have been thrown. There is threading the needle and then there is forcing it. You are not expected to catch that pass, I completely disagree. You hope to catch that, and that is all. The ole' "if it hits your hands, you gotta catch it" doesn't apply when you're getting sucker punched from three different sides at the same exact time.

On a side note, I wonder where that guy is who said the Falcons would "put a 50 burger" on us. Ha, freaking ha.

Yeah that might be it but at the same time its hard to get any really hard shots in on anybody when you're moving in such a small space. I'd get more dangerous if hed stumble trough the D-line and into the next level where LBs or safties might come flying down.

He catches that more often than not. He's Colston.

I've seen him catch the ball in traffic, but not like that. If he had caught it, it would have been awesome. I'm just glad he didn't get knocked out. I understand what you're trying to get at here, I do. But I'm not gonna blame a guy for not catching that type of pass. If he had time to come down and tuck it in, and then got hit, that's reasonable. That's where you see good receivers make the play. But this was virtually simultaneous. Really tough... Just my opinion.
