Although Dixon gave up a TD, the coverage wasn't exactly awful (needs to look for the ball). He will get better with more reps.

Sometimes I wonder why we kept Toon, Morgan and Cadet on the 53 roster.
We never use toon or Morgan, and hardly ever see cadet on the field unless we are reaching because we are getting our butts kicked. Why not trade or cut them for some more good players?

Armstead suffered a concussion on the first Saints drive.
Of course no one will know the extent of his concussion, but before he can return to practice he'll have to do the NFL physical and pass the concussion protocol. Impossible to know how bad those are until the tests are given.

Thanks
I really hope he is back. One of my main worries in preseason was the lack of depth on the offensive line. Its one of the reasons I didn't get/wasn't happy with our draft picks.

Toon....eh...Morgan...I don't understand why we aren't using him. our offense thrived on the ability to stretch the field and we are not doing that this year. Cooks, Stills, Morgan, Mechum.....all sub 4.4 40 guys who are known for getting open deep. I don't know if Brees is still hurt but the velocity and deep ball has not looked good so far this season. Its clear that the offense is going to have to carry the defense again this year but if we can't take the top off a defense then we won't be able to win. They have Graham running lots of short routes not the seam routes like the last couple of seasons.

We have. Truly lost our identity on both sides of the ball this year.

Morgan was terrible in the opening games in the kittle action he saw. He was bullied out of catches. Toon, who knows whats up with him.

True....but he stretches the field....what WR on our team hasn't been awful except for Cooks and Stills played well last night. Cooks has made plays this season but not the impact ones yet. Hopefully he does because we needa spark badly.

Re: Saints Road Woes Continue with 38-17 loss to Cowboys

I don't think brees can throw an accurate deep ball anymore

Jimmy had two steps on their DB and brees under throw the ball so much that the DB had it picked until Jimmy came back and knocked it out

We used to take shots down field in single coverage and that doesn't happen anymore, you aren't telling me every DB has perfect coverage on cooks when he runs a deep route
