Saints seek ways to slow Eagles' fast-paced offense

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; They are averaging 70 more yards than us on the ground. That is a glaring problem and really the only thing that bothers me. I agree though, they have yet to play a good defense. Get some three and outs ...

That was against the Redskins, Cardinals, Lions, and Bears.

Scored 24 = Redskins - 30st most points allowed. (29.9 points)
Scored 54 = Bears - 30th most points allowed. (29.9 points)
Scored 34 = Lions 15th most points allowed. (23.5)
Scored 24 =Cardinals 7th most points allowed. (20.2)

Not saying it wasn't rolling, just saying it didn't have much resistance.

Thanks for echoing my point. The Dallas game you ask? Isn't their defense the second worst of all time... and they scored 24 on that?

welcome aboard teddy

they are good and do deserve to be here. that said ur kind of right. they beat the pack without AR, Lions in a blizzard (took away lions pass game), skins twice, giants once, bears, cowgirls without homo, raiders, cards (their best win), bucs

the only playoff team was without their starting qb.

lost to kc @home, Denver, chargers@home, cowgirls, giants, vikings

Re: Saints seek ways to slow Eagles' fast-paced offense

I'll take 60-40. All the teams in the playoffs are there for a reason . The eagles make a living running the ball. We will struggle if we let them keep time of possession in their favor. They take care of the football and we must too.I don't think that the Eagles Defense gets enough credit . IMHO this will be a game that see saws back and forth with a end of game drive for the win.Turnovers as always will be crucial. This should be a fun one to watch .If we play as we are capable of playing we are a better team by a small margin.

Re: Saints seek ways to slow Eagles' fast-paced offense

This is a tough game to pick. The Eagles are very fast on offense with Mcoy and Jackson. They run an effective fast paced offense and Foles doesn't turn the ball over. They also run the ball very effectively. I think the Saints need to find a way to run the ball against the Eagles. The Eagles are a good team but I do think the Saints are better. I predict we'll be able to score points on the Eagles and eventually we'll get to Foles enough to win the game by 10 pts or more. Of course I see the world through black and gold goggles so who knows. WHO DAT!

That applies to both sides of the ball. Butterfingers, tipped balls, and forced passes have killed us all season on the road. The Eagles D has lived by the turn over this season, we've died from them.
