Of all the Saints teams that have suited up, this team is in the top 1-2% of that apex. They D is getting pressure in the first quarter in PS. Alex Smith may have marched down the field but he was also sacked with a vanilla scheme. I'm in no way saying this is a stellar defense but It's looking like it will be average to decent.

The offense...I honestly don't think there is a team that can stop it. It's going to be that good. 40 burgers, I could see half a dozen. Onsides kicks, trick plays...teams are going to bring that stuff I just home we are prepared for it.

Teams have been facing third and longs against us because we have completely taken away their running game

No running game = no short yardage situations

Weve backed them up and forced them to throw

There is ample reason to be optimistic.

And BTW: we've yet to see our 1st string defense play yet. Galette, Vilma, and Wilson have yet to play. Thats almost half of our starting front 7.
Thank you Danno...you prevented me from having to type those exact words....couldn't agree with you more!

Will Smith is devastating when going through a walk through?



Almost looks like someone was told to talk about Will Smith.

They looked DAMN good, but at the same time everyone on the other side looked half-retarded. Trying to contain my optimism....

Special teams are just sloppy.......McMahon has got to go!
I liked Humber the most of our young bucks on defense. Toon and Stills looked ready for prime time. We've got some young talent.
