568 yards is embarrassing, even spags D didn't allow that much
Perhaps they're spending too much time on social media and not enough getting bigger, stronger, faster, meaner?

Galette was tweeting all off-season about how good he was and how much disrespek he got. He looked weak, slow and uninspired.

The only D-lineman I saw with any fire was Walker. He deserves some more reps.

Byrd/Vaccaro looked no better than Harper/Jenkins. Do we actually teach our safties ankle diving?

Maybe they did buy into the hype. They got spanked by a good offense. It may be a good thing to start the season with that to help refocus for the rest.

Embarrassing performance. Rob needs to man this defense up.

Did you mean that our defense is awful?

Junior picked a great time to be completely invisible, 2 days after being rewarded with 23M guaranteed and a 4 year extension

They better pick it up, I looked forward to this season ever since last season ended, I didn't look forward to seeing that kind of play

Re: Saints defense crumbles

I didnt see the game, and i refuse to look at any highlights. i dont want to see Atl get any respect. But from what I can see by stats, it appears that Spags was our DC.
Also saw a stat on a different post showing we were in a decline from about mid season on. We are weak, I don't want to jump on any bandwagon of being negative. But it is what it is.

Re: Saints defense crumbles

Its not like we will get a good test this week. The Browns? Our defense better shut them down. If the defense plays well against them I'll be happy. But I'll hold off being optimistic until we face a better offense. If the Browns offense makes it a close game, our defense is just awful.

OK, I'll go just the opposite and say I'll be optimistic until we play a bad offense and make them look good.

I don't think we should read too much into 1 inter division game, or the first game of the season.

And if you want to lay the blame at someone's feet, you should put it where it belongs. It was Roman Harper and Scott Shanley's fault!

Yep. The Browns are ... THE BROWNS but I don't expect Kruger, Mingo, Hitner and Hayden to lay down for us like a cheap prom date on D either.

I won't take them lightly at all, even with Hoyer at QB.

Re: Saints defense crumbles

Not much can be fixed in less than a week but a good start would be to challenge their WR's. If we get burned we get burned, better than handing it to them. Last week I started having flashbacks of Alex Molden. Challenge them at the line. We have to go Oliva Newton on em' and get physical. This playing off will not work.
