like it or not - defense won that game

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; D is markedly improved from last year...that didn't really need to be said. However, the team from Georgia's D is also a bit better than last year, which is why our O looked a bit out of it. D won ...

Re: like it or not - defense won that game

D is markedly improved from last year...that didn't really need to be said. However, the team from Georgia's D is also a bit better than last year, which is why our O looked a bit out of it. D won that game, and it's proved yet again that the Saints are just simply better than the Clowns whether it's in a shoot-out or in a defensive battle. Saints are just better than that team from Georgia. Glorious.

3 straight 3 and outs when we could have killed this game at 20-17, the defense held falcons on all those drives and even though they allowed alot at the end they came through for us

Harper with two turnovers!!! How many sacks did we get? 4-5?

I actually like our defense, the D line looks awesome, couple of bad plays allowed but overall a very good debut against a team that was one game away from the superbowl

Held the high flying offense that will win the nfc south to 17 points!

Our offense needs to get on track
I dont think anyone doubts that the defense won this game. I think I would say the offense almost lost the game. We were given the ball way too many times to come out with only 23 points. If our offense would have been on we would have scored in the 30s easily. Our offense kind of has had a history of starting off a little slow the first game. We have some new blood all over the place and they will gel, it wont take long.

On another note, Brees seemed to have lacked accuracy this game. He underthrew his man several times.

I will hold out total enthusiasm until I can figure out how much of it was Atl Oline as much as our D. I think Atl is going to have serious problems in that regard this year. A team like SF would have killed Ryan.

Wow, so we looked a bit rusty and still put up 400+ yards?

And if Ingram continues getting nailed behind the LOS it's time to try something else. Is he telegraphing his runs?
Ive been saying that all offseason. Other backs could find holes in our line, I dont know why he cant find any.

Re: like it or not - defense won that game

I was not overwhelmed when we brought in Ryan: so-so resume and he looks like a WWF manager.
But, great scheme today, D played with swagger, and as Albert said during the game, they had more fire and emotion today than at any point last year

We won.
Defense didn't look like the worst defense in history.
Stills made some great catches...... There, I got the momentum going for you......

One positive thing... Just gimme..... One.... Positive.... Note....for....Christ's..... Sake

I thought our offense looked fine. Take way the underthrown balls and we put up 40.
