Re: Sitting on top of the world

They should have called for that before now. I have pointed their issue out in the Smack Talk area quite a few times.

They are just ssslllooowwww.

Re: Sitting on top of the world

Great stats. Good call-out on the Interceptions though. Brees is prone to throwing Interceptions. So far it hasn't cost us but it nearly did in Tampa and it allowed for an uneasy finish against the Falcons (based on a crude assumption that had he not thrown an INT, we may have stretched the score a little).

As you say, let's see if we can't tighten that up a little. It would be nice to get through the next 3 games with 0 INTs if not just to balance the books a little.

Re: Sitting on top of the world

If we can keep this up and tightened up on the INTs, the NFL better look out. I can't wait for the next three games. I think out D line will feast on Miami's O line. Chicago will be a fun one to watch. It wouldn't surprise me if the New England games turns out a lot like the Tampa Bay game. That would not be what the fans were expecting out of that match prior to the start I the season.

They have a board? Falcons fans usually aren't smart enough to read or write...

Worst job in the NFL is being assigned to cover Jimmy. 2nd worst job knowing it will be your job the following week.

My guess is that Drew contributes 7M off his salary to the keep Jimmy Graham foundation next year.

Re: Sitting on top of the world

The offense is 6th right now and has yet to start clicking on all cylinders, when that happens and the is able defense keeps this up and/or improve. The NFL is so screwed

Re: Sitting on top of the world

Less than 20% of the season completed.

Two plays from being 1-2. (Jackson drops a TD, Kicker whiffs a chip)

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.
