They've been giving the Saints offense problems all training camp as well.

And "getting better" is really all any of us expect at this point.

If you are going to make blanket unfounded statements, at least make them remotely accurate. I don't recall anyone mentioning the score or winning.

That being said, my opinion does not require anyone else's support or mile stones.

Re: So far, unimpressed

First of all-I hear a lot of "its only preseason", like players are out there playing like they're in the pro bowl. Those boys are playing hard...some are trying to win a job, and some are playing to try and keep their job. To think that there is no improvement is ludicrous.....7 sacks!! C'mon man!! And to think that a couple of our key starters were not even in the game- how can you not get excited about that!
Secondly- is it just me or are we finally actually f***ing tackling people!!

Re: So far, unimpressed

I am concerned too...
But at least we tackled in both games... Not a lot of leaky yardage.
That was the main problem for me last year. We'll get more pressure this year, but not much.
Hey, when you're the worst defense ever... it's almost impossible not to get better.

Even the commentators on NFL Network said if the Saints defense can improve to 15-20, the New Orleans Saints will be a team to be reckoned with!!

And if the Saints had lost last night, would you have made this same post?

How can u not see improvement? Last year they would have had zero sacks against a awful competition.
