PFF- ReFo:Saints@Colts, Preseason Week 3

ReFo: Saints @ Colts, Preseason Week 3

In the annual ‘dress rehearsal’ preseason game, the Saints beat the Colts in Indianapolis in a highly entertaining match between two teams with playoff expectations, though the first teams were less competitive than the final six-point differential would suggest.

The Saints pulled their quarterback after less than a quarter after scoring two early touchdowns. New Orleans saw a noticeable improvement in penalties as well, finishing with 10 after a 22 count last week against Tennessee.

Conversely, the Colts left their first team offense in longer, but with little result as they managed just 10 first half points and will be disappointed with the entire unit’s three turnovers.

As we always do, let’s examine some of the eye-catching performances from this game.

New Orleans Saints – Performances of Note

Drew Brees, QB, +0.4


Breakdown: Brees looked sharp in his first live action of the preseason, leading the Saints’ offense to two first-quarter touchdowns. There were several misfires (e.g. 1Q, 13:25 and 10:58), but he also made a couple of beautiful, regular season-ready throws, including hitting Marques Colston in the back of the end zone at 0:36 of the first.

Signature Stat: He faced pressure just three times in 16 drop-backs.

Tim Lelito, C, -3.3

Breakdown: This performance certainly won’t reflect well in Lelito’s battle with Jonathan Goodwin for the starting center spot. He was repeatedly squeezed and pushed around in the run game, with a pressure surrendered in pass protection; his attempted block at 3:16 of the second quarter provides a adequate summary of his play.

Signature Play: Tasked with blocking Brandon McKinney at his own goal line (3Q, 4:21), Lelito finished the play on his back in the end zone, with the running back barely getting across to avoid a safety.

Kasim Edebali, DE, +2.4

Breakdown: Edabali got to the quarterback twice in just eight snaps, and picked up another positive for beating his man at 0:27 of the fourth, though he didn’t get there in time to affect the throw.

Signature Play: On the very next play, he beat TE Erik Swoope to join Lawrence Virgil on the game-ending sack.

PFF Game Ball

Saints end Cam Jordan was as disruptive as ever in his 32 snaps, picking on tackle Gosder Cherilus on his way to a +2.4 grade.

Zach Kerr, DL, +3.2
Breakdown: The Colt defensive lineman couldn’t quite match last week’s +4.0 performance, but he came close. Playing 35 snaps spread across all four quarters, Kerr picked up a sack and two other stops, victimizing guard Marcel Jones on several occasions, such as at 4:55 of the fourth.
Signature Play: At 11:34 of the fourth, Kerr rather easily dismissed Jones’ block attempt on his way to the quarterback for his aforementioned sack.

this kid tore up the interior of the OL in the second half. He is my number 1 must sign if cut so far.


Litto needs works and has shown promise but when the season kicks of i am so happy we signed a veteran. plus after watching our backup OG get eaten alive i am really starting to wonder

I saw Cam Jordan at the bowling alley the other night and man... he looks to be in fantastic shape. The last time I saw him he was pudgy and now he looks much leaner with a lot of good weight. I think he might top those numbers from last season which is scary.

Just wanted to point out PT23 looks a lot more leaner as well. He looked great Saturday night.

I'm sending various vitamins and supplements to Grubbs and Evans. I'm afraid if either of them go down for more than a game or two, the season will be in serious jeopardy.
