like it or not - defense won that game

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Vaccaro looked good five solo tackles, took jackson down single handedly and the 4th down deflection of Gonzalez. Lot of poise for a rookie he's going to be special....

It was definitely a lower scoring affair then I thought it would be ... kudos to the defense, ol' Matty "Ice" looked kinda' nervous out there, .

I liked it. It was a definite change from the offense scores 42 points and New Orleans just barely squeaks by with a win game we are used to.

Of course, if the D wants to be well AND the offense wants to score 42 points, that would be ideal.

I haven't looked at the stats but our offense didn't look like they usually do.
And if Ingram continues getting nailed behind the LOS it's time to try something else. Is he telegraphing his runs?

They didn't but we ran like 65 plays and had 400+ yards

sproles was exactly the same and they have pretty much identical stats, their DT babineux had a very good game and we couldnt run much against them

Brees was off a little accuracy wise, that INT wouldnt have happened if he would have led colston instead of throwing it to his body

That said even when it looked like we might lose people started blaming the defense or the offense, I thought we pkayed just a damn good football game today. Both sides of the ball. Way to go guys!!
The offense made the game closer than it should have been.

I would grade the Defense an A and the offense a C+
