My frustration with the D is on 1st down runs and 3rd and long. Big difference between 2nd & 8 and 2nd & 4 with 1st down runs. This crap of giving up a 1st down on 3rd & 7 or more yards has gotten very old.

Still convinced we need a block-eating NT for this "kinda-sorta" 3-4 defense we run. It exposes our MLBs and/or safeties for those gash run plays because our NT gets blasted out of the running lanes. Can't maintain gap integrity across the D-line front when that happens and that's when we see Lofton/Hawthorne/Humber/KVac dragging down RBs from behind 5 yards past the line of scrimmage. Happens much too often than it should with a decent NT in the game.

Maybe Rob's crazily complex defense schemes aren't going to work. Last year he ran a pretty vanilla scheme that played into the players he had available. Maybe he needs to pare it back and focus on fundamentals again.

that is were the DC shines or dies.

go ask any cowgirls fan and the story line is way to familiar. Especially in the fourth quarter.

Lack of adjustments on the fly and well just out right crappy play calling by rob is to blame.

Re: Frustration boils over for New Orleans Saints defenders after second straight loss

How can the defense look good when their on the field most of the games, because we turn over the ball at key moments and offense is unable to stay on the field for more than 30 yards, lol . Offense has given at least 3 games away.
This offense would choke on a Tic tac

Frustration boils over "hmm boil" let's head to the chow hall and talk it over. It appears that Coach Ryan is good at that maybe they got a good
craw-fish boil going on there.
