Mickles: Saints defense flashes its potential

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm glad they played a great game. However it was against Tampa Bay, this is also the same team that gave up 50 points the week before. I like the direction but I'm still not satisfied... if that makes sense?...

I'd hardly blame 50 points on our defense last week.

I do feel better about them as we wind down the season. There is some optimism about these guys now.

EVERYONE in the entire universe knows that Spags system takes a while to grasp.

I'm surprised that anyone is surprised we're looking better as the season progresses.
I've said that in a previous post, it took the GMEN almost 7 to 8 games before they became what they are really now on defense. Next year we should see even greater strides.

Well who would you blame it on?

Re: Mickles: Saints defense flashes its potential

see what happens when we tackle properly though

watch the bucs game again, there was hardly any leaky yardage, the first player there often made the tackle

it was fun to watch

Re: Mickles: Saints defense flashes its potential

Some people are playing for a job, because some haven't had this effort all year...

As far as Spags system, and I like the guy, you don't put in a system and look for guys, you do what Payton did - take the guys you have and let your system evolve around them...
