We still Good

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; For all the holding Seattle gets away with it, we still put up over 300 years on them. The Defense just needs tweaks. The O-Line needs a new RT and C, we ready for next season....

Re: We still Good

I think the tweaks were made by the end of the season. Add Kenny V in there and I don't see how they could get much better except for some depth in case of injuries.

I totally agree with you on the O-Line. Drew needs time.

Re: We still Good

Here's what I think we need:

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.

Commit to the run in 2014 = winning.

Paraplegic one hundred million dollar man needs to grow some legs to find his way out of a pocket when it start collapsing.

We are the only NFC team in the playoffs who does not have a scrambling QB, but gets paid the BIG BONES.

We have not been back to the NFCC Game since the magic season.

Drew didn't even throw a int if I remember the dude dropped it but all qbs throw into just needs to not throw as many and press the issue to much. Defense just needs to be faster IMO and wrs need to get separation.

Re: We still Good

I agree with all of you, esp. WHODATINCA.

And yes, it was a VERY good season no matter what the media talking heads say . They just have to fill airtime so they say BS and not facts.

I remember when Gregg Williams had the defense trying to strip the ball first, ex: Beastmode run in 2010 playoffs.

Everyone *****ed and said we needed to get someone in that teaches tackling first. We finally get a DC who worked on the fundamentals(tackling) and now we are *****ing to revert to a strip first defense? I'd rather less miss tackles over an occasional fumble any day...

I was going to say this exact comment but this is another thing, Rob Ryan took over the worse defense in the history of the NFL. They said we had no talent, that we lacked talent in all 3 phases of the D. We said that if he could get us anywhere near 15 to 20 it would be a huge success. Analysts said that if we ever produced a top 10 D we would be unstoppable. Rob Ryan brought us to #4. They mere mention of getting rid of him is preposterous, absurd and ridiculous. It is time to face the facts, the offense let us down. I think d coordinators have figured us out, like they figure everything else(wildcat,read option) it is time to add new wrinkles. I think SP is so confident that even though he knows they have figured some things out, that he still wants to prove he can beat them with it. We should have been pounding the ball all year, that kept us in it and kept Seattle on their heels. Add a wrinkle of a power run game and maybe all the other stuff works. But it seems like the days of just winging it and putting it all on Drew's shoulders are over. He regressed towards the end of the year.
