I think Vaccaro has played better the last couple games. PFF only has him missing one tackle last week. Probably that one.

When you're on the bottom you can only go up right?

Re: Operation: Feed Drew

I'll take some defensive 3 and outs coupled with some offensive clock management "TOP".

Re: Operation: Feed Drew

a new defensive mindset he and defensive teammates will "intensify their focus on what he dubbed “Operation: Feed Drew.”" The focus is "creating takeaways that set up the Saints offense in enemy territory."



I was the one saying we need takeaways....but, nevermind.

Actual tackling is now Job 1 for our D. One step forward, three back.

Pretty sure our offense got 10 points off those two turnovers our D forced?

Didn't we get a TD off of the Lewis pick? I think we did, but can't remember

Yeah pretty sure Austins TD was off the lewis pick and we got a FG from Vaccaros pick.

We ain't on the bottom yet. We can still get worse, believe it or not.

28th points/game (27.5)
21st yards/game (373.7)
28th pass yards/game (270.5)
11th rush yards/game (103.2)
30th (Tied) forced turnovers (4)

Those ranks are staggeringly different than last year, but we continue to be effective against the run.

If we get worse in run defense: "turn out the lights...the party's over".

My guess is because we now rank 30th in takeaways, and before the Lions game we were dead last in the entire NFL and on pace for the fewest takeaways in any sport known to mankind throughout the entire history of the world?

Surprising that we are that good against the run...
