How We Will Beat Seattle

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Brees threw all those passes in those losses because we were playing catch up. This time around we have a defense capable of holding things close until the offense gets it together. People forget but we did some very nice ...

Re: How We Will Beat Seattle

Brees threw all those passes in those losses because we were playing catch up. This time around we have a defense capable of holding things close until the offense gets it together.

People forget but we did some very nice things on defense in that Monday night blowout especially in the 2nd half. I won't completely dismiss the notion that Seattle let up just a bit, BUT schematically we seemed to have them more figured out.

If we have those adjustments in mind I think the defense can limit the Seahawks and keep the game relatively low-scoring which would be in our favor, IMO. This will need to be a gameplan based on field position and time of possession. Grind it out. I don't think that necessarily means that you have to run the ball way more than you pass, but you do have to be very strong on 3rd down and keep the chains moving and their offense on the sideline.

Bingo! With no giveaways and a couple of sustained drives in the first half, this is a completely different game than the last time.

Re: How We Will Beat Seattle

balance of pass and run and a mean defense...

Heavy doses of M.Ingram - K.Robinson. Make Seahawk's safeties-linebackers respect the run. Air it out when opportunity arises .....

[QUOTE=CoreyO;569524]Yes it wassnt just brown but there are large improvements since switching to armstead in pass protection and run blocking[/QUOTE

Because the rest of them realized they would be riding the bench too if they didn't start playing like they're capable of.

I like basically making it a defensive battle. Low scoring. Our D has to match theirs which shouldn't be a problem. Then, it's the 4th quarter and who wants it more. Somebody will make a big play. I say we do.
