Williams has ups and downs as well, we said he had been figured out after losses post 2009.

In reality, all defenses in the NFL, with the possible exception of Seattle because they do not play a bunch of different shows before the snap, are smoke and mirrors.

Offenses set the pace for a game and defenses try and compensate. Its week 1 and there was no tape to know any tendencies.

If we won that game I would still be screaming about the defense.
Poor run defense and repeated wide open receivers on identical crossing patters was nauseating.

Drew and the offense had some rust, but man our defense looked poor.
I do believe we have the talent to fix the situation.
Probably good we lost to humble the team. I felt everyone was sounding too cocky!!!

Re: LIVE OFFICIAL SAINTS VS. FALCONS GAMEDAY THREAD

Picked the Saints defense for my $$$ League and thought Week 1 was gonna be a blowout...

And I'm not alone, Jim Henderson was calling for a ten pt win...

You said it though, even if we'd won, I'd still be calling this team out for letting off the gas and all the mistakes across the board...

But we're 0-1 and Payton will look in the mirror tonight...

Only thing that sucks is we gave Seattle a game up today...

We'll be back...

Re: LIVE OFFICIAL SAINTS VS. FALCONS GAMEDAY THREAD

Am at end of my rant ... Sigh


Well our offense is back on track ON THE ROAD , Ingram looks like the heisman back we drafted , cooks looks like a stud , and when stills returns we will only get better ...

On defense it can't get much worse ... Good news , we won't be covering Julio Jones , Devin Hester and Roddy White every week.

Our defense will get better and we have a cake schedule ...

This is the one hope I have after today's embarrassment. Hopefully this lit a fire under the team.

Interestingly, Frank Beamer FINALLY stopped running the ball up the middle on every single play last night and my Hokies wound up upsetting Ohio State. When will SP learn the opposite lesson: it's okay to run every once in a while. You don't have to outsmart the opposition on every freaking play. Sometimes just buckle the chin strap and pound the rock.

(As a disclaimer, I did not see the game today as it was not on TV in WI, so I am basing my critique only on what others have said here in the forum)

Anyone else notice P. Robinson is growing his dreads back? He sucked eggs until he cut them if I remember correctly.

Could be coincidence... If you believe in that

I hate to tell everyone but Tampa might have better WRs than Atlanta and their run game is outstanding. Does anyone think PRob can cover Vincent Jackson or Mike Evans?

I think pat Robinson sucks regardless of what he does

I said when we drafted him it was a reach for a guy that everyone had slated to go middle to late 2nd round and we made a first round pick

4 years later all I see is a younger version of Jason David
