Has anyone noticed?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; After last season, I'm pretty happy with what the D did yesterday. Yes,we do have some things to work on, but holding that offense to 13 pts. In the first half w/o all of our starters in was reason enough ...

Re: Has anyone noticed?

After last season, I'm pretty happy with what the D did yesterday. Yes,we do have some things to work on, but holding that offense to 13 pts. In the first half w/o all of our starters in was reason enough to be optimistic. And how about Mr. Glen Foster!! wow! Excellent pick up for the Saints!

Still worried about the secondary. We had avoided the big play the last 2 games but we gave up to many this game.

May be irrelevant since we'd double cover and/or bracket someone like AJ during a real game

Depends on who the TE doesn't it ?

I'd have to go back and look... I was thinking Schaub was possibly throwing to AJ or OD which ever wasn't double covered... Then I remembered that for most of AJs catches he was zero covered. :/

Just checked...No Andre Johnsons on the the schedule.

However, we do play some other noteworthy receivers.

Week 1 - Roddy White, Julio Jones
Week 2 - Vincent Jackson
Week 3 - Larry Fitzgerald
Week 4 - Mike Wallace
Week 5 - Brandon Marshall
Week 8 - Steve Johnson
Week 10 - Dez Bryant
Week 12 - Roddy and Julio again
Week 14 and Week 16 - Steve Smith
Week 17 - Vincent Jackson again

Remember 2 years ago when we put 2 players on the Lions' Calvin Johnson? It looked like 2 guys on a punt team gunner.

Darrell Revis in his prime would have been abused by a healthy Anthony Johnson in single man coverage without help.

I'm not worried about that at all.

Noteworthy is one thing... Nearly Unstoppable due to match up is another..

The only combination that worries me is Jones and White when you add Gonzo... We have however proven we can even stop that with the worst defense in history.

I'm mostly worried about that area between the LB's and the secondary. Our LB's haven't proven they can cover deep enough and if we bring our safeties up we'll get burned deep or burned on those intermediate routes just past them, especially if we don't get a pass rush.

Thats my major matchup concern right now, especially with Atlanta. You know they're licking their chops at Lofton in coverage.

Only obvious solution is to go all Williams and don't let ShattyIce get that ball off clean,
