Questions about the game today

I wasn't able to see the game, so had some questions for those of you who were able to.

1. How was the offensive line? Was Brees getting a lot of pressure and, if so, was it up the middle, from the sides, etc? How was the run blocking? And did anyone from the O-line stand out (good or bad)?

2. Our receivers/tight ends, were there many dropped passes today?

3. Saw Goodwin went out with injury again, so how did Lelito play after coming in?

4. On defense, how were our front four in terms of getting pressure on Glennon?

5. Lofton and Hawthorne have been slow and faikures in coverage so far this season, and I know Humber started, so how were our ILBs against the pass?

6. How did our secondary play, particularly our cornerbacks?

Any other notes you want to throw in, I'd love to hear. Thanks everyone! #WhoDat

They were pinning their ears back and getting good pressure on Brees, all 3 of his picks because of pressure. Run blocking was good, but that was because they were too worried about getting to Brees

Quite a few and Graham sitting most of the game didn't help

At times good and at times the O-Line in general were getting over-run with pressure

Pressure was a little better and Galette gets a sack + safety due to crowd noise

Humber went out of the game early, but about the same performances. Probably our weakest link...

P-Rob was the highlight, got a spectacular interception; the rest were meh...

Lofton had been one of our few bright spots on defense this year before this game.

Re: Questions about the game today

We dominated them in every statistical category there is except turnovers, which almost cost us this game.

Not a great win today at all, but a win nonetheless!

Humber had a really nice special teams hit before he went out though.

Re: Questions about the game today

3 picks and a turnover, a turnover that was initially ours but we re-turned it. Magically,we won with some nice 3D conversions and great running when it counted. Brees also got yelled at by Payton on the sideline which was deserved.

The offensive line looks its age; failure to develop depth and a horrible decision to overpay for Grubbs to compensate for the Nicks Loss has hamstrung (pun intended) along the line; a few times the backs got blown up because we were that much slower than their Defensive Linemen and Linebackers...

Gotta disagree with Mitch characterization on question one - granted Drew was harrassed, but those were some bone-headed, stupid throws, and the third interception, Drew was late and sailed it on a deep attempt to Meach...

Stills dropped a couple too avoid being laid out and Colston had some key drops; heard an interesting comment post-game - "Brees forces the ball so much to Graham that Colston and the wide receivers aren't use to it coming their way..." That's no excuse to drop the ball, but I get what the guy was saying...

Lelito is not experienced enough yet to pick up the gaffes by Grubbs, but Payton needs to geaux with him this point on so he can get better experience; Goodwin is too old now to play 60minutes/16 games...

Non-existent except for when the Bucs were sacked for a safety and only because our missing 12th man finally showed, coupled with a missed assignment on Galette who went unblocked - the only way he seems to be able to get pressure...

As your question suggests, more of the same from two guys who are sending in the check as their check is guaranteed and they have no motivation to play hard; Lofton was beaten terribly in coverage several times as well as beaten by Buc RBs turning the corner...

Considering the pass rush was non-existent, they had a solid day; had it been a better group of wide receivers and a healthier V Jackson, it could have been ugly; Lewis and Robinson (who got the first interception of the season) got nicked up...

Looks like we went all-in on a horse that looks ready for the gluefactory; the big money contracts are not playing to their compensation; so, damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead...
