This is exactly why I love B&G. High standards.

Re: So far, unimpressed

I kinda liked what I saw Friday night. It was a real imporovment over the first game. Other than losing yardage on first down running plays, I thought Drew and company played pretty well. I think the real test will be this weekend against the texans. I'll withhold judgement until I see that game.

Hey, when you're the worst defense ever... it's almost impossible not to get better.
What in the world makes you think "we'll get more pressure this year, but not much."?

No scheming, man-on-man, and our players are bowling over O linemen. What have you seen in these first two games that gives you any indication what-so-ever that we will struggle to get pressure?

I understand it's silly to think we'll carry on into the regular season exactly as is. Obviously, we'll meet some force pushing back against us. However, what have you seen in these first two games that sends off signals that we will fail at getting a pass rush?

I'd love to know.

Just because it was against the Raiders doesn't mean it can't be done on tougher teams. (It's not like it failed against the Raiders.) Will it be harder against tougher teams, sure, but I'm curious to know why you don't think we'll be successful rushing the QB.

Re: So far, unimpressed

I mean the Raiders are not very good and their Oline stinks, but we didn't really do anything fancy. Even when we brought Harper I still think we only rushed 4. I am not sure we really did any blitzing so that is impressive.

Cam Jordan is going to be very good. KV is really going to be good. I expect some growing pains, but that kid has nice instincts. Lewis is an upgrade at corner.

I think we have more talent than we have ever had under SP. My main concern is oline. I am scared to death if chuck goes down and with his history you almost wait for when. He could be very good if he stays healthy. Strief must be healthy because he looks good on the other side.

Man oh man is it me or is Stills a steal and how about Toon. Loving it.

I think Vilma is done. Good guy and was our best defensive player for a few years. Hope he gives us one more good one, but I don't expect him here next year. And what is with Humber, wow.

Re: So far, unimpressed

I dunno guys, Im with Xan on this one. One thing he forgot to mention is how ugly the saintsations were and how the waving of the pom poms were just flailing all over the place. If they dont tighten up, I'm gonna have to go down there in my wife beater and speedo and show these broads how its done.

Ok I'm done now

Agreed. I know "it's only preseason" and they are not running the full scheme, but the 610 Stompers SMOKED the Saintsations at halftime of the Chiefs game!

Pretty much how I feel...

Not at all liking what I'm seeing at Outside Linebacker, though the middle and front line looks better; Vaccaro has looked great, though I'd still prefered a game breaker at Outside Linebacker...

I think Wilson and/or Galette could be that game-breaker... And hopefully we see more of the same from Humber, be nice if he stays that dominant on the inside.
