I posted after the third preseason game that I was worried about our defense, especially our secondary, who everybody seemed to pick on in preseason.

I haven't seen the game either. I have it DVR'ed. I trying to decide if I should watch it or not.

For your own sanity don't! You'll end up pissed off and regret it.

Yeah, you're probably right.

Re: Saints defense crumbles

I really hate it when the Saints Players start mouthing off before a game. We almost always lose the game when they do that. I wish they'd just shut up and get ready for their opponent every week instead of taking anyone lightly. Never take your eyes off your opponent.....even when you bow. (Bruce Lee)

Re: Saints defense crumbles

Then again, watching it knowing the outcome, might be informative as to what the heck is wrong with the defense. To be fair, other than the INT that everyone is talking about, Drew made some pretty great throws that day. In fact, the Colston fumble play was shaping up to be awesome, right until he fumbled it! I guess the guy hit him on the shoulder, but he kinda went bleeahhhh and the ball went flying out. But right before that, Drew had evaded some guys and threw a nice laser to him. There was some Saints ball to be seen, it wasn't like the Cleveland or Arizona game in 2010 or anything. It had its moments.

"crumble" leads me to believe that some small parts held together.

Re: Saints defense crumbles

You have the NFL's "best" offense and you only score twice in 6 2nd half possessions, blow two red zone opportunities, and with the game on the line, can't get 1 1st down, I'd say the offense is part of the problem.

Like jnormand said, "Don't watch it".
Look at the stat sheets, form your own oppinions...
The video proof is disheartening, especially when it was the Falclowns.

We scored 14 points in the 2nd half, on the road.

Scoring 14 points in every half would rank 2nd best in the entire NFL.

And we had 5 drives in the 2nd half, and gained 244 yards and converted 13 1st downs.

Offense wasn't the problem.
