Saints Defense for Real?!
 
The Saints Defense took a quarter to get started but looked pretty good throughout the game. Totaling 3 Sacks by newly acquired Parys Haralson, Akiem Hicks, and Junior Galette. Defense also held Atlanta on 4th and Goal, Vacarro tipped Ryan's pass intended for Gonzalez then Harper intercepted it in the end zone. Saints also lost Tyrann Walker to an unknown leg injury he was carted out.

Overall i think the Defense carried this game. Look forward to watching this defense the rest of the season and see how they improve.

Saints also only allowed 88 rushing yards. 50 were from 1 Steven Jackson run, so overall a pretty good run defense.

I am not going to say they are for real just yet. However, they were much improved from last year's nightmare unit so I am hopeful.

Yes they are for real..........I am not getting overly optimistic just yet. Two big time players went down today.

Yeah I am concerned about the two that went down. But happy with the performance overall...

That last play confused me so I knew it confused the falcons, all but one defensive lineman played off and then crashed the line off snap! I think we have a DC

Long season guys but I liked what I saw from this defense today. Gallette and Cam looked good, Parys will be a FORCE and the game isn't too big for Vaccaro. etc. Hopefully we get Martez back soon.

Yes, this D has the potential to be 'for real'.

I don't think so. I think our conservative philosophy and bad play-calling killed us in that game.
