AWESOME WIN....but somebody has to say it

First of all we are 4-0 and couldnt be in a better position in the division. Offense has found its stride as far as moving the ball and yes, the defense is the real deal. One or two games you can call a fluke or luck, but 4 straight great outings and its for real.
That being said, we need to do something about our offensive line, and quick. We are playing great right now, but if we cannot learn to consistantly run the ball in the first half it will catch up with us down the stretch. Although he wasn't hit as much, he still had some pressure and that can factor in the second half of the season.
It is a marathon not a sprint and there are some things we need to fix if we are going to be in it for the long haul. I don't know what the answer is but be it by trade or just signing some vet who didnt get picked up we have to beef it up.
Grubbs seems to have regressed from last year.
I dont want to see Brees on the ground as much as he has been. If he is, it is going to effect his timing and decision making.
We are a playoff team, but how far we go hinges on our Oline.

Charles Brown..... not sure about him. At least Brees was "only" sacked twice tonight.

Seriously? Drew was sacked twice against arguably the best front 7 we've faced so far.

O-Line and the offense as a whole are starting to get their rhythm...

Re: AWESOME WIN....but somebody has to say it

Does anyone else think the offense has looked much better the last two weeks without Ingram?

I don't think it's Ingram as much as the OC and Sean Payton are changing our scheme. Our offense has looked a lot better the past 2 weeks, period. It's not Ingram per se.

The interior of our line hasn't looked good. Grubbs and DLP.

I think its a little of both. Collins got in a couple nice blocks and they were able to open a couple of holes there toward the end. I did see K-Rob plow over a couple of people twice. That is something we are missing when Ingram is in. I totally agree that the line looked improved this week, but its still a liability.

Re: AWESOME WIN....but somebody has to say it

If we expect to make a DEEP playoff run this season,, there must be more balance on offense. Whether its Pierre, Robinson OR Ingram running the ball. We were smacked pretty good by the Fins D line first half.

Re: AWESOME WIN....but somebody has to say it

Interior o-line looked especially bad run blocking tonight. I think it's time to scrap the zone blocking scheme.

Still liked what I saw from Robinson. 3.1 YPC may not look great but he is consistently making positive yardage.

Re: AWESOME WIN....but somebody has to say it

I agree with many of the points made about the lack of a run game in the previous posts.

I am a purist in that I believe we will exit early in the playoffs without a consistent run game.

Then, I stated thinking. Could Payton pull this off? Can he adjust, week to week, to whatever the opposition shows us?

All it takes is one poor performance and we exit the post season. It also requires some luck.

Maybe Coach is doing what he can with what he has. This is a young offensive line overall. Hopefully the players will improve as the year goes on.

I Believe.

I'm no one.
