One big reason why the saints lose on the road

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Doesn't appear to be affecting the Bronco receivers very much, maybe the the referee crew's doing their games aren't getting the message....

Re: One big reason why the saints lose on the road

I think a lot of our road struggles are just a mental thing. It isn't like our players downgrade in talent away from home or anything. We just don't have the confidence/swagger on the road like we do in the dome.

Kuechly Tackled Graham before the ball got there on one touchdown pass attempt...

On several plays

In the dome, the boos fly on the first mauling
Then the refs call the holds
Recall Colston in first Panthers game

Killed the drive
Then got the calls


Gronk got malled by Carolina too

As "offense happy" as the rules seeem to be regarding qbs
Our team seems to be getting so many non calls on the receivers

If I was drew I'd throw right at a held receiver and have them react demonstratively

No. Just fight for the ball, try to throw off the holds, lean into the defender towards the balll making the infraction even more obvious

And at all cost fight it out if the db snatches it

I beg to differ

because ol whats is name from tennesse did not work out in the first round. oh yeah meachem.

Colston is a Z WR in this offense. possession guy

especially at this point in his career. but i have been saying this for years and never bought into the great depth statement either at wr for years. so most people take me a crack pot at this position

Not sure what anyone expects when we ride that horse into double and triple coverage play in and play out...

He will go the way of the Gronk before it is over.
