Mike Triplett: What the Saints must fix

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I would be happy if we just learned how to tackle. When other teams punt, I count those as turnovers....

Isn't a 3-out a turnover?

Stupid is...

Re: Mike Triplett: What the Saints must fix

Last year we had so many 3 and outs it was hard to get turnovers

Our pass rush is weak and contain on the corners is not there
I would trade a few less sacks for keeping things in front of us

Please go to press coverage
Not this 15 yards back soft zone

Dont try to be Seattle

Re: Mike Triplett: What the Saints must fix

If the secondary gets in the right positions with the right communication with a decent pass rush, we should get the INTs. We haven't gotten an INT since our final regular season game last year against Napoleon Dynamite, and have ONE turnover in 12 quarters this year.

But I'm scratching my head with our inability of forcing turnovers not being that big of a deal in an NFL football game, though. I've harped my concern with this inability in numerous posts, but maybe I'm missing something? I reckon if we win out without forcing another turnover, I'll just shut it right on up...

Doesn't Seattle play a ton of "press coverage?"

Just me, but I'd rather just the defense focus on making tackles and tight coverage than swiping at balls and gambling all the time. Turnovers should come as a result of good fundamental defense, not as a result of abandoning what made us a good defense in the first place.

They play mostly a cover-3 zone, with occasional man-to-man.

No, I'm with you...I'd rather have a defense that's fundamentally sound than a gambling one that is overcompensating for lack of talent and fundamentals. A by-product of a fundamentally sound defense has got to be forced turnovers, and considering our talent on the defensive side of the ball, we should be creating those turnovers. So are we talented but not fundamentally sound? I'd have to say yes, hence the 1 forced turnover this year against pedestrian offenses...yes, the Fail Clowns included. Ain't giving them credit for nothing.
