Are the young bloods on d really better?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Our defense normally makes a bad QB look stellar... Last night was a different story. They look competitive and the offense controlled the clock...

Re: Are the young bloods on d really better?

All through the game I kept asking myself if we were playing good or if the Bears and Cutler were just that bad. But I kept noticing the hustle by players, chasing down plays, fighting to shed blocks and just winning one on one match ups. That has been missing so much on our defense this year.

I fully agree if we play with that same effort and heart at home versus Atlanta they don't stand a chance. But with how inconsistent we are week to week it is shaky confidence. I really want it to continue though.

The young bloods are at least showing signs of fire.

It was a good game for them to start and get some playing time vs an ailing O.

That Fredrick guy was a good one.

I love the idea... look if you don't do your job we will put someone else in your spot.

We could just play two-high with him and warren leaving kenny to play a hybrid role next year.

Warren is a better FS than Bush is.
Yeah, "Hawthorne"! Who woulda thought? I'm deciding if I should reconsider wanting him cut. Did our DC just figure out a better way to use him (blitz)?

Loved the idea of trying out Humber as OLB. Trying something finally, at least.

Our secondary had 3 starters who weren't even on the team 3 weeks or so ago?

If Payton and Loomis really want to "fix" things, they'd better re-examine how they didn't select for even the practice squad a player who so obviously flashed in pre-season that he was a favorite. A big miss. Underscored by a future need to sign him off the Vikes' PS....and then START him.

I know Byrd will be back but this kid is a natural who needs to be on the field.

Agree about Warren but who do you bench Bush or Vaccaro? We have room for 3 safety sets but not 4, and I think Bush is better than Vaccaro at just about everything. Maybe we should trade Vaccaro while he still has some value.
