Re: We still Good

And I am not bashing Brees, I love him but the plays are predictable and if Graham is doubled we give up. And SP needs to look at how Carroll won that game. He didn't run it 3 times and just hope we didn't score, like we did in NE and Car he threw a bomb on 3rd and 3. That was balls, and that is what SP use to do. Unpredictable, confident risktaker. Now he is afraid to lose so he calls the game tentatively.

To be fair, the run game really didn't work until Armstead began starting and/or Ingram started getting more carries late. I'm going with Armstead though, the O-Line started playing tons better as he got more games in

No, but you did insinuate getting rid of Rob Ryan, see below

Job 1. Work on O-line pass and screen protection -- it really sucked MAJOR WIND this year
Job 2. Secondary needs depth
Job 3. Need to win the turnover diff. Need to work on sack, STRIP, FUMBLE RECOVERY AND INTERCEPTIONS. Hello. If RR can't coach this -- bring in somebody who can.
Job 4. WR corp dropped way too many passes, were not fast enough on their routes, and did not fight for the freakin' ball -- I'm talking to you J. Graham, R. Meachum and L. Moore ( although he played better late season ).
Job 5. Play-calling -- really needs some work -- it killed us in several games this season.
Job 6. Drew needs to stop throwing f***ing interceptions. Period. The end.

No I DID NOT. Dude, you are totally reading sh*t in. I was thinking an assistant specialized coach.

Easy for anyone to assume, you really didn't make things clear...

Thanks, man.

Just so I'm clear: I HAVE A CRUSH ON ROB RYAN -- OK HE IS FULLER FIGURED AND PROBABLY HAS BAD TABLE MANNERS -- BUT I DON'T CARE -- I LOVE HIM AND THE ONLY WAY I WANT HIM TO LEAVE NOLA IS IN A BOX.

CLEAR?

Let's be honest, did we really try to run the ball with Ingram and Robinson- our power runners. Did they get 30 carries together like the last two weeks. No Ingram would get 6 to 8 carries. He is a volume runner he chips away at the d until he breaks loose.

Re: We still Good

Strief finally was healthy and with the addition of Armstead we were able to get the running game going.
