Offensively, I don't see what Tony was so impressed about. We racked up the yards, but it was a highly inefficient performance. Drew under threw a lot of receivers (even on a few completions), and though his stats look solid, he definitely wasn't as sharp. Ingram continued to lack of existence, and there were some very costly penalties. Sean Payton made a horrible decision by calling for a deep handoff on 4th and inches. That should have been a QB sneak, and it doesn't take a genius or even hindsight to figure that out. It's common sense.

Drew wasn't bad, just off. The receivers caught the ball well. Sproles and Thomas played well at times. All in all, it just seemed like the offense lacked it's usual killer instinct when they had chances to distance themselves, and made a few dumb mistakes.

The fact that we won in spite of all that gives me great confidence going forward. I fully expect they will be more sharp in the redzone. I think the Saints showed there is no doubt who the class of this division is, and perhaps of the entire NFL. We'll just have to see if the defense will be consistent now.
Very well put....I 100% agree with you.

Re: Tony Dungy says the Saints are the biggest story of the day!

The one thing I will always remember about Dungy is this:

When he was head coach at Tampa Bay, and Keyshawn Johnson was his no 1 WR, there was a season where Keywhawn caught 101 passes and scored 1 TD. How the heck can you have a WR catch 101 passes, and only score 1 TD? It's not possible.

Collinsworth & Mike Smiths brother-in-law Brian Billick are the two where I turn off the sound.
