Saints after 4 weeks
 
Simple question...

Which side of the ball is our most valuable asset right now?

Poll accompanying and discussion would be nice.

This team has always lived and died by the offense. I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Offense for me. I know the defense is much improved and playing lights out, but our offense is still our biggest weapon. Drew and the crew are just too damn good.

I'm gonna have to say defense...

I mean we've always lived and died by how well the offense has played, but now with the defense playing so well we might not lose so much when the offense has a bad game.

Just look at weeks one and two when the offense were not on the same page, defense did just enough for us to pull out the win...

If not for the defense we 'could' be 1-3. Just sayin'...

Offense scores points............you need points to win. Therefore offense is more valuable! It's just logic. :smile:

Thus far the offense has not been the scoring machine it was before, that has only changed in the last 2 games.

I am going defense.

What would the score have been with 0 interceptions and forced fumbles last night?

What would we have done in weeks 1 and 2 if the defense had not preformed do well?

And what would it have been without 4TD passes from Drew? :D Sorry, just had to play devils advocate on this one.

I do believe two of those TD passes came off of turn overs... No?

Creating and forcing turnovers, consistent pressure on the opposing QB, and stellar play from a constantly rotating defensive personnel has been key to this team this year. The offense is finally starting to click, but it is the defense that carried us through those first few games. They may be giving up long drives early, but Ryan makes the necessary adjustments to shut the opponent down. I am officially on the Rob Ryan bandwagon now.
