That's a little deception there. Our D scored 9 TDs that year and had the most turn-overs, and if you can re-call it was our D that got us in the Superbowl (porter pick against MIN) and our D that won us the Superbowl (porter picking Manning).

If we score TDs instead of FGs, there is not even a discussion. And of course, Drew's bonehead INT. Defense obviously needs work. No way we compete with Seattle right now.

The Good: Call me crazy, but I was more impressed with our offense today than at any point last year. Think this years offense could be better than the 2011 squad. Cooks really adds something to our team.

The Bad: The defense was horrible, theres no easy way around that. It's just one game though. The defense started slow last year too before kicking it into gear. It'll come around, just give it time... when it does, we'll be hard to beat.

Even if we won this game I would be just as concerned. The loss doesn't matter to me, it's how we lost that has many of us concerned.

The good: It took two 50+ yard FG's and they could not beat us in regulation.

The bad: Payton's birth control eye glasses. Should have given them to Colston in the 4th quarter.

Re: The Good and the Bad...

Good - Cooks is good and will move the chains. He brings quickness and good route running. Ingram looks like the player he was in college. PT is the best backup/role player in the NFL. Robinson has the skills. The O-Line looked as good. Very solid. Graham hit his kicks.

Good and Bad - Brees was good. Not great. Missed on the deep throws. Graham made some good catches and will look good in the stats. But, big time players take over in key games and situations. He has come up short more than less in that department. Colston had some good plays and one critical turnover. Something he's done before.

Bad - Everyone connected to the defense. Scheme was bad. Gameplan was bad. Execution was horrible. Absolutely no adjustments throughout. The defensive line was a complete no show. Jordan, Bunkley, Hicks and JR were taken to task by at best an average NFL o-line. 3 QB hits on the stat sheet. P. Robinson is a waste of space. Vaccaro was shockingly invisible. Byrd looked like a guy in a new scheme without many reps. Sunseri needs to play over Bush. 42 passes. 26 rushes. (Cooks and Brees 1 carry each excluded.)
