So far, unimpressed

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think Xan should change his name to Xan't. It suits him better. Meanwhile, I'll continue to be positive and realistic. It's what a true Saints fan does....

C'mon, just play along. It'll be fun.

Obviously, if Oakland had any kind of pass rush Brees easily would have thrown 2 maybe 3 picks.

Houston is going to embarrass us for 4 quarters. Its gonna be humiliating.

What is Xanax? Xanax (alprazolam) belongs to a group of drugs called benzodiazepines. It works by slowing down the movement of chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced. This results in a reduction in nervous tension (anxiety).
Xanax is used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression.

Xanax Information from Drugs.com

Re: So far, unimpressed

The next game against the Texans will give a better indication of where the 2013 defense is. I feel comfortable saying it's much better than the 2012 defense. The uncertainty/injuries at LB is a concern. Harper and Jenkins are what they are. The young dline is looking very good. Vaccaro is the real deal. All of the players seem to love Ryan's scheme. Plus, with their offense and the Head Coach being back, the defense doesn't have to be great for the Saints to win.

Re: So far, unimpressed

We played a Raiders team with a new starting QB and their left tackle is done... Let's temper our enthusiasm people. Wait until after the game against the Texans next week to heap all this praise on our defense.

7 sacks vs. anyone is impressive... 11 sacks in 2 games is even more impressive...

No it's not... Not in the preseason. Especially not against awful competition. If we play as well next week against the Texans then I'll be impressed but everyone's getting hyped over beating a garbage team... We're getting better but let's see how we look against great players.

Keep being a pessimist; join the many that are around here.

If you can't see or just deny the improvement we've seen over last year, that's your problem not mine...
