Over-react much?
Especially with the fact that the starting OLB's for the game were will smith and jay richardson

Not even the starters

I feel as though RR would not show his hand in the game though, he did not blitz alot from the OLB spot at all

Maybe waiting for week 1 to suprise the clowns

************ It's Pre-season**********

It counts... but in a different way, no one is trying to win until the last Qtr when the worst string is in.

Preseason is where you want to find all the things you can't do, or do poorly.

Did well:

1. Ingram looked 1 yard better than last year.
2. I seem to stand alone on the island where our D did about as good as any against Jamal Charles/ run game.
3. As bad as we looked on the opening drive the Defense ONLY allowed 215 yards the entire game. Yes it's preseason, we laid down 427 yards.


Didn't so well:

1. Linebacker experiment is suspect.
2. Special teams were suspect..... But hasn't McMahons ST always been?

Again..... On defense , it's preseason.... We only looked bad the first drive and our LB corps is an experiment right now. We should stop comparing to 2012, it's apples to oranges.

Rob Ryan stated that fixing the run defense was priority number one. You are not alone Oak. We were clogging the line and getting good push. And thats after we lost "the best run stuffing DE in the NFL".

Yes, its still a work in progress, but I'm liking the progress I see.

McCown really target him last night

I wouldn't want to be Greg McMahon. Most knowledgable Saints fans are upset that he's still with the club after years of producing subpar results.

Re: OFFICIAL SAINTS VS. CHIEFS GAMEDAY THREAD

From what I could piece together from spotty WWL signal here, and just seeing the score, it sounded really sloppy. I didnt get a great look at replay, but initially, Im pleasantly surprised: My #1 concern was pass protection. It looks at least as good as last year. Drew looks "on."

Armstrong looks like a viable option for Charles Brown. I was not disappointed in defense, except I dont understand how Will Smith is going to cover backs. Kenny Vaccaro looks like the real deal, and I was skeptical of the pick.

We are still a pass-first team, and the O-line appear tuned to pass block first.
I'm good with this. We still have PT & Sproles, and Ingram still shows promise, and working off our pass threat, I think our running game will be fine.

Defense is still like a blind date-- I have high hopes, but can make do with less.

-- Drew Brees left the field in one piece, walking on his own feet, so I think we can smile.

I LOVE preseason. They put on their helmets and play football. You get to see who might be a star, a la Pierre Thomas. Real football & cooler weather is coming. Its the most wonderful time of the year.

As far as the issues, I sell my p-season tix, so no big deal. And I'll be making the trip from Texas for the home games, win or lose-- But really, there is no lose. You're in New Orleans.
