Lessons Learned Week Two

1) No More Excuses, Mark Ingram is now in Bust Territory; can't put it all on the offensive line as other running backs had some success; but his field vision and decision making really bears scrutiny...

2) Malcolm Jenkins makes the decision to bring him back more difficult when he has games like this; he's had two weeks in a row of key plays; but he's still taking poor angles in his coverage (needs to ignore Roman Harper)...

3) Posters of Drew Brees and his agent should be placed in every quarterback's locker with the caption "Sure you don't want to leave any cap room for a Left Tackle?"

4) Rob Ryan still calls predictable, unnecessary blitzes; after doing a stand up job of getting a base package pass rush viable again, he negates with poor blitz calls...

5) Injuries are really catching up to this defense; but it is the deepest defense the Saints have had since you know who...

6) Terron Armstead and Bryce Harris need to get their transition in OverTime! Both Charles Brown and Zach Strief looked horrible in pass protection today...

7) Vaccaro finally looked like a rookie but was bailed out with a wimpy call; but he's the best coverage safety we got and really took away many deep plays...

8) What can we get from San Francisco for a Sixth (6th) round pick? Parys Haralson has looked great for the Black and Gold...

9) Jimmy Graham is the Best Tight End in the NFL; and I dropped an in-his-prime Dallas Clark to keep him on my Keeper League Team!

10) Saints would be lucky to fetch even a fifth round pick for Mark Ingram after today; regardless, if Robinson or Cadet can't be trusted, it's time to bring in Cedric Benson or another FA veteran running back who would've converted that short and goal for a touchdown; those are rest of game morale breakers...

Re: Lessons Learned Week Two

Ingram and Brees nearly cost us that game. And I never thought I'd say that about Brees.

Re: Lessons Learned Week Two

Brees has 3 td's and 3 picks in 2 games

Vaccaro got beat by a pro bowl WR, growing pains happen for any young defender, he will watch tape and get better, he was in great position just needed to make a better play on the ball

Mark ingram - ive stuck up for him constantly, but its time he was traded, we gave up picks for a RB that cant make decisions

Feed PT, wish we would have kept joique bell, PT and sproles

Jimmy is a beast and got smacked all game, only to come back and make great catches

Brees needs to stop forcing passes, i dont know what he saw on the pick 6 but it was embarrassing to watch

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Except that play where he was in perfect coverage for the pick...

Re: Lessons Learned Week Two

Maybe you aren't supposed to spike the ball when there is less than 30 seconds and no timeouts left? WTF?

Yep, Jenkins actually realized how to play free safety... it's only taken how many years now?!
