The Last Time We Played Seattle

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; They kicked our a$$ at the Line of Scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Offensively, conventional wisdom says the way you overcome that is by establishing a run game early and getting the O-Line into the frame of mind ...

The Last Time We Played Seattle

They kicked our a$$ at the Line of Scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Offensively, conventional wisdom says the way you overcome that is by establishing a run game early and getting the O-Line into the frame of mind that we're gonna pound you, grind you and bully you until you break. Payton and Brees like to set up the run w the pass. I don't think that'll work against the Seahawks. Give me more MI, KR and PT please.

Re: The Last Time We Played Seattle

44, you are preaching to the choir with me. I am right there with you.

We also need to take a look at the Cardinals game against the Seahawks. In that game, Palmer played badly. 4 interceptions, wow. And, they still won. Notice a familiar theme here? Their defense played out of their minds holding the Hawks to 3.3 yds per pass. They got a fumble too -- which is a SEA anomaly. They also held SEA to 103 on the ground -- while running 139 yards on the ground themselves. Their defense also sacked DangerRuss 4 times -- again notice the similarities? They also pressured him all day long.

The Cardinal offense completed 13 0f 25 for 168 yards ( which I mean come on, Drew, with just a little time, can do this with one had tied behind his back ) for 6.7 yards per pass. Cardinals TOP 37min to SEA 22 min. Again, notice the thematic similarities to the Saints?

And, finally, the SeaHawks helped with 2 turnovers 1 INT and 1 fumble and 9 penalties for 102 yards ( penalities being SOP for them ).

Given everything I read from that game -- we got this.

Commit to the run in 2014 = winning.

Talking about Line of Scrimmage, can anyone tell me who was starting at LT in that game?

hint: he's on the bench now

Hope we learned something from playing them last time.. can't walk in there with the same mistakes and a lot simpler play calling. The crowd won't be any less loud.

Re: The Last Time We Played Seattle

We made early mistakes and played scared the rest of the game.

If we eliminate the early mistakes, we have a very good shot at the upset.

I respectfully disagree about the scared part. I thought we played smart, rammed the ball down their throats, then took some shots downfield after we softened them up. The first INT I thought was Still's fault fir giving up on te route and ball. The second one was all Drew.
