The Advocate has an interesting story about Safety Kenny Vacarro mentioning 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."

“We have to keep taking those,” Vaccaro said Wednesday. “The more chances he (Drew Brees) gets to score the ball, the better chance we have at winning.”

The Saints have a paltry four takeaways this season. Only Jacksonville (1-6) and Washington (2-5) have fewer than that.

How about just focusing on not sucking. The turnovers will come.

Re: Operation: Feed Drew

So they will try and focus on creating more turnovers

Remember what happened last time? We missed 26 tackles in the entire game trying to strip the ball.

I sure do bro. It was horrible. How about a three and out for the defense?

Yea on the Tate TD, White had safety help over the top and short zone responsibilities. He was in better position than Tate when the ball was thrown. Zero ball skills. Unacceptable.

Even in short zone coverage, he could have tackled tate for an 8 yard gain, 4th down we get the ball back.

Instead he tries to make a play on the ball with no idea where tate had gone, completely screws it up, then to make matters worse Vaccaro missed like his 5th tackle of the game to spring tate free.
