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

Our recievers need to be just as physical with them, I see a lot of db.'s getting away with that, not only against us but all over the NFL. Seattle gets buy with it the most I believe followed by San Fran. It plays both ways or it should. Our recievers need to grow some balls and get back to work.

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

Thats why we need a true number one wide receiver

Brandon marshall, calvin johnson, larry fitzgerald and andre johnson are all great examples of true number 1 wide outs that are physical and take no crap at the line of scrimmage

Colston and graham are not physical players, aqib talib is outweighed by jimmy by about 40 pounds and made jimmy look like a high school player

Time for the receivers to start knocking some of these dbs on their collective a$$e$. Hard to cover when your on your butt.

physical begats physical. Either better technique getting off the line, mix up the motion man, mix up formations, something. Although having a physical presence at the receiver position certainly is a great place to start.

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

"Yeah just be more physical guys! We just need a Calvin Johnson!" Ok, while I get where a lot of you are saying, and I agree in part, there's a big difference between playing physical to get off a jam or going up and fighting for a jump ball (Jimmy Graham trex arms) and having a 240 pound linebacker hanging on your back, not even trying to play the pass.

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

Colston is a number #1 receiver. What we need is new options. I remember in 1998 as The Dallas Cowboys HC Chan Gailey lined Michael Irvin up in the back field. Be more exotic with the placement of Colston and Graham. That will not only free them up but also the other offensive playmakers.

Liking this thread. Yeah, Saints reciever corps -- we've seen better. We all know it. Did we sacrifice WR corps for a better D? Money guys?

I hit on this early, not just us either. DBs are mauling. Somebody is telling refs to look away.
