Are the young bloods on d really better?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; What's the verdict? Can they keep it up? I like what I saw, but at the same time it was one game, it was the Bears, and there was no film. What do you guys think?...

Re: Are the young bloods on d really better?

I loved what I saw but I have to control my enthusiasm a little... The Bears were a complete disgrace last night and quit very early in the game. The real test will come next week against the Failclowns. With that being said, I think we know one thing for sure: Pierre Warren is too talented to be on the bench next season. I know Byrd will be back but this kid is a natural who needs to be on the field.

They made tackles, were in position to make plays, so to me yes they are better.

I really like that Eboli or Edeboli kid....I don't know how it's spelled. He seems to make plays or is around the ball when he gets his chance to play.

Re: Are the young bloods on d really better?

Players that stood out on the D last night Warren(Byrds back-up for sure now)P-Rob(held down the fort)Ediboli(good showing) Hawthorn(yes Hawthorn) and J, Jenkins( glimpse of hopefully more to come. Warren was all over last night he has great hands and looks to be a good fit at FS but as much as I like him I still feel Byrd will win the starting job but that is 1 position that should be good for years to come. Warren is a better FS than Bush is.

7 sacks!

3 picks! (Warren 2)

Yes, I know it was the hapless Bears but our defense's energy was high, tackling was solid and players rallied to the ball.

Yes, the game was still sloppy but our offense made plays, no dropped passes, Drew was razor sharp.

This same performance will win at home next week.

Yeah it might of been against the bears but if one thing Gregg Williams taught us when he was here, its that hustle wins football games

If our players have the same kind of energy vs falcons it would be huge.

Pierre looked too talented in preseason, yet he did not make the final roster as he should have. What happened there?

Like I said - same performance wins at home next week.

Last night was the first time I enjoyed watching our defense in a while...

Re: Are the young bloods on d really better?

It was a good start for a young group of guys in the secondary. The Bears are a mess but we beat the team in front of us.

Pierre Warren is only going to get better. Love his center field awareness. Brees was sharp and Roll tide had some nice running lanes.

Win out. Its doable men.
