I would, yes, like to see some tackles. Legit tackles. Some hustle , fast running out there. What is it with Saints doing a light jog and reaching out to tackle someone? NFL is not touch football.

This is exactly what is going on. My cousin the other week after one of our losses were discussing a very similar thing. I told him that our team may have the IQ to build a space ship to the Moon but forget on Sundays that football also requires you to line up and beat up the guy in front of you. We don't do that. We get beat up instead.

Re: Are We Tough Enough?!?

I listen to some of Payton's post game pressers.

What I glean from his words is that his view of the game is so "situational" and based on so many factors that it's downright confusing.

Far be it from me to criticize because, hey, who am I right? But damn man - it seems like any team who lines up to kick our teeth in DOES it.

Beat up the line with 4-5 rushers. Limit Brees to short throws and they'll stall in the red zone OR turn it over.

Not mentally. Not physically. Too much ego. Not enough wego.

we need to move training camp to the alps, I mean if you going to go to a vacation destination might as well go higher and get even cooler temps for our guys.
