True statement...offense from the 2nd half of Cards game barely overcomes 2 picks and Special Teams jackassery. Offense from first 2.5 games does not overcome these.

Re: Top Three: Ways To Defeat The Saints

I watched that whole game and I didn't see anything special. Their receivers dropped about a dozen balls with nobody around and often looked lost. If they can't communicate on their own turf I don't see how they are going to have any success in the SD on MNF with a more aggressive pumped up defense in their face. The only time they got it together was for the last drive and even that was sloppy.

Looked like falcons lost that game more than they won it, is what I took away from it.

Re: Top Three: Ways To Defeat The Saints

I didn't catch the ATL game, but all indications say the Clowns beat themselves. I did watch Miami's Indy @ Indy game, though. Their defense ain't all that bad, and they are young. You can't overlook a team that is young and going in the right direction. Of course, Wallace's badmouthing and whining about the play calling when they win doesn't help that team much. Blessed be thou, Colston.

1. Pressure up the middle.
2. Blanket the receivers.
3. Hope like the hell the Saints new kickass defense doesn't make things any harder on you than they already are.

That's what hit me right off, basing so much on the stat about the Saints giving up 150yds+ rushing in six games and only winning one of them ... last season ... and we all know the Saints haven't done anything to improve their 'D' since then, . Oh well, the author's just gonna' have to consider it a "learning experience", .

Re: Top Three: Ways To Defeat The Saints

The offense doesn't "need" to show up. Miami's offense is no Atlanta Falcons and has no where near the weapons, and as much as it pains me to make this comparison.. Miami's running game is not as good as the Saints.

If the offense doesn't show up we we still score 2 TDs (because Jimmy Graham is just that frikken good) and Hartley kicks 3 FGs missing 1. Saints 23 Dolphins 17.

I looked at Miami's opponents this season.. The 2013 Dolphins are the equivalent of the 2012 Falcons... Soft schedule.
