I don't know the rank in Sacks allowed, but Drew has been hit A TON.

They MUST improve O line.

There is ZERO run game. Sean Payton believes the short pass is a run... That won't fly far into the playoffs.

An improved pass rush & Drew Brees (to Graham) are our bright spots.

Sorry, but I have concerns.

You have more than concerns.

Rightfully so.
Brees protection is a serious concern.

However, remember that the team shouldn't have even been in a position for those two plays to matter much because the offense left points on the field in both of those games. If the offense starts clicking, like we know they should, they won't find themselves in those type of scenarios.

Re: Sitting on top of the world

Just in case anyone is curious, we are 9th in sacks allowed, five other teams have given up the same exact number of sacks as us (10), and we are rated 21st in "QB hits" allowed. We have 14 QB hits allowed so far; for general comparison the Broncos (2nd best) have 8 and Cleveland has 34.

I will rephrase my reply, maybe it will help the perspective.

1. You can be mad, no one is stopping you.

2. There have been 9 games in the last 3 weeks won by 3 or less points... That means there was one play in each game that could have changed that... ONE PLAY... One play decides more games than you know because most of the time it is ONE PLAY that changes the entire tide of the game.

3. Drew has 10 sacks... Equal to or less than 9 starting QBs in the NFL.

4. Yep, when Jhari isn't injured it will be.

5. That ZERO RUN GAME has 8 teams doing worse. And that short pass is sort of what we did for the majority of a Super Bowl win.

6. I would say you have huge gaping holes in your view of our up side. Having the number 5 passing defense in the league is something we have had last when? 2010... Having the #5 passing defense in a pass happy league is huge. We get gashed for runs, but we are not consistently getting run over. Considering we have faced martin and Jackson in the first two weeks and did very well against them.

At the end of the day, season, it doesn't matter what concerns you or I have with this team, all that matters is WHO IS PLAYING BETTER WITH LESS ISSUES.

I would say that only team right now would be the Seattle Seahawks. Even the mighty 49ers have more issues than we do.

I'm not mad fellas. This team is two plays from 1-2. Fact!

18% that's substantial. Agreed. you think that makes a team feel better about their performance??

3. Drew has 10 sacks... Equal to or less than 9 starting QBs in the NFL.

The same QB who would normally be in the lowest 5 in sacks at this point in the season.

4. Yep, when Jhari isn't injured it will be.



5. That ZERO RUN GAME has 8 teams doing worse. And that short pass is sort of what we did for the majority of a Super Bowl win.

it's a good thing no team has figured that one out by now...

6. I would say you have huge gaping holes in your view of our up side. Having the number 5 passing defense in the league is something we have had last when? 2010...

Considering we have faced martin and Jackson in the first two weeks and did very well against them.

I'm not saying the D hasn't improved and that the O didn't perform better at home vs Arizona bro. And since when is 300 yards between two backs doing "very well"???

At the end of the day, season, it doesn't matter what concerns you or I have with this team, all that matters is WHO IS PLAYING BETTER WITH LESS ISSUES.

I would say that only team right now would be the Seattle Seahawks. Even the mighty 49ers have more issues than we do.

I'm with you 100% on that one..

Re: Sitting on top of the world

Can you imagine a male dog in a warehouse full of legs?

Last season was so hard for me that, that is exactly how I feel right now. Lol

Remember in An Officer and A Gentleman on the drill pad when Mayo is crying "don't take this away from me"?
