Saints Offense Breaking Records in 2013 - Lowest Production in Payton Era
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hot off the press from Jeff Duncan's article on NOLA.com, here are some interesting facts that may help guide some perspective on the 2013 New Orleans Saints season.

RECORD SACKS ALLOWED
Quote:

In the wake of Carolina's six-sack manifesto last week, Brees has now been sacked 36 times this season. That's the most of his eight-year Saints tenure and the most by any Saints team since 2004.
RECORD PENALTIES COMMITTED
Quote:

In addition, the Saints also have been whistled for 28 holding infractions, tied for fifth most in the NFL. Here's the breakdown of the infractions: Charles Brown (seven); Jahri Evans (five); Brian de la Puente (four); Ben Grubbs (three); Zach Strief (two); and one apiece for Jed Collins; Justin Drescher; Jimmy Graham; Bryce Harris; Will Herring; Khiry Robinson; and Tim Lelito.

RECORD TIME OF POSSESSION FOR SAINTS
Quote:

The Saints rank second in the NFL by possessing the ball for an average of 32:35. That's the highest mark since 1991 (33:58). The defense has contributed to the cause by holding opponents a 33.3 percent conversion rate on third downs. Consequently, Saints opponents have only recorded 256 first downs, which would be the lowest output since 2006 (262).
WORST SCORING OFFENSE IN BREES/PAYTON ERA
Quote:

The Saints are ranked 13th in the NFL in scoring with a 24.8 points-per-game average. The Saints have never finished lower than 12th in scoring in the Brees era and led the league in scoring in 2009 and 2011.

2013 Saints Defense > 2013 Saints Offense

Never thought that would happen under Sean Payton unless Brees got hurt.

I felt these stats highlighted what exactly is the problem this year. We have thread after thread blaming coach Payton's playcall, lack of running game, Drew Brees, and o-line for failures.

For me, this proves the offensive line is sketchy at best in 2013. Offseason cuts, trades, draft and signings WILL happen. I would also like to see a new offensive line coach with seasoned experience or someone who can coach retained players up.

I've never seen Drew on his backside like I have this year. If it continues, he will get injured maybe this year but definitely next year if the o-line woes aren't correctly addressed.

Our D has given our O lots of gift wrapped presents this year but our O has not given back. Unreal. They need to clean this crap up quick.

I too believe problem one is the O-line.

Next is probably WR, or OLB. I kinda think our WR's would have performed much better if Drew had that extra second or two to throw. So fixing the O-line may show that WR wasn't as big a problem as we thought.

Then its BPA at CB, OLB, ILB, D-line.

i agree whole heartedly with halo! in the beginning i saw our lack luster in off play but always shunned it off by saying sean is rusty by week 5 or 6 this off will be a force to reckon with, but as the weeks goes on i'm starting to think the lack luster in off performance is catching up with us.
