I think the piling on is ridiculous. He's a frigging FB that's played 4 games. FOUR!!!

Sounds like you girls are just looking for something to whine about.
I'm pissed when i see Lorig in the flat, one yard line and he can't even gain an inch once contact arrives

A great blocker ought to be able to do that

He's just one of many problems

Wasn't Lorig hit almost immediately by a PAIR of defenders?

Maybe the Saints' recent successes have skewed people's reality.

Indeed he was. The guy has not played much, cut him a bit of slack to get warmed up at least. We have bigger problems than needing to bash a guy that has played well minus a play where he was STUFFED because a pair of defenders were at full speed on him. Geeze.

Really wish we could "dislike" on these posts.

Re: Can Lorig gain a yard or break a tackle?

Of course, he was hit by a PAIR of defenders! Do ya think they might have had an inkling or a clue that the ball was likely coming to him? My complaint was mostly about the predictable play calling, only partially about the player. It was obvious watching in real time that the play was anticipated, he got met right there and no amount of effort was going to be able to get him into the end zone, short of a total miracle.

But taken as a whole, that play, that goal line sequence -- and Lorig -- is part of a growing laundry list of Things That Used To Work For The Saints, that don't work anymore....that is the elephant in the room, that I think some people don't seem to want to acknowledge....the things that USED to work for the Saints, that used to be money, aren't working reliably anymore. I could rattle off a list of things that used to be our bread and butter plays, that don't work reliably anymore:

- FB on the goal line
- Colston to move the chains (drops/fumbles)
- empty backfield on short yardage
- Drew threading the needle near the goal line
- the screens that get anticipated and blown up, so Drew has to throw it in the dirt...

Seriously, I could go on and on and list more. Heck, even running Ingram to Jahri's side, on the play before the FB pass -- two or three years ago that play would have probably worked. Or to the other side with Nicks in his prime, four or five years ago. Things with this offense and playcalling, are in the process of getting stale, and HIGHLY predictable to defenses. Can people not see it?

Lorig is not the problem as much as the call on a play that doesn't really sell anything else as an option on a slow developing play.
