Re: Week 2 Improvement

I thought the ground game was serviceable against Atlanta. The offensive passing game was what I think needs improvement. And, by improving, that could simply mean just catching the ball. Brees used Sproles as a crutch.

There's too many drops and we have to stop settling for field goals. The offense had more than a couple of chances to put the game away well before it had to rely on the defense once again to win the game.

Re: Week 2 Improvement

Special Teams...specifically penalties. Field position is too important to negate even a short punt return with a holding penalty. I haven't re-watched the game, but it seemed to me like for most of the punt returns someone was flagged for holding or block in the back.

Re: Week 2 Improvement

We all want a stout ground game...


Does it make sense to run the ball against Atlanta when they have rookie and backup defensive backs playing the entire game... With drew and our Receiver corps..?

You are correct. I don't necessarily want to run more as much as I want to run more effectively.

I could live with a 55-45 pass/run ratio easily.

I believe the plan that Pat Kerwin referenced after an interview with Sean was around 58/42, but that was before it was announced that Atlantas starting d-back was out.
