Nick Toon, after the early fumble he bounced back. You can see the confidence building. Good to know we went back to him after the early blunder.

Pierre Warren, another game, more experience, more confidence. This kid looks like he can play in this league.

Akiem Hicks, Now that’s the Hicks we thought we’d see all year.

David Hawthorne, looked faster and more intense than I’ve ever seen.

Josh Hill, more confidence building for him. Two TD’s and it looks like he’s not just a 3rd/4th option anymore.

Terrance Frederick and Jamarca Sanford, put the starters on notice. “Tighten up, we’re right on your tail and we want your job”.
Pretty much agree with all the points

I was glad SP didn't bench toon after the fumble, he came back and made some nice catches, its all experience for him and I hope he can be a starter next year

Hicks pushing their OL into cutler and then dragging him down with one hand was priceless

No coverage breakdowns, the secondary played a fundamentally sound game

Pierre warren made the plays when they were there - wished he could have run one all the way back.

Nice diving interception by P-rob.

PT running the screen and it taking 6 bears players to tackle him.

Re: Saints over Bears, what did you like the most?

We beat a very bad team. Cutler is the antithesis of a leader. No one on that side of the field looked at all like they wanted to be there.

As dominating as we were in the first half, it was 7-0 with 30 seconds left.
I'm glad we won, but we still have work to do.

Only once early on, did I remember seeing an incomplete pass, there was contact and the Saints receiver (can't remember who it was) looked around at the refs like he desperately wanted them to throw a flag -- the play was over and done, and his body language was being a big whiny baby about it. That only happened once that I saw. Which is something they do ALL THE TIME when they are losing. In the bad games they always get that body language of being spoiled babies or prima donnas, begging the refs for help, and there wasn't hardly any of that whiny attitude on display last night. They looked like how a football team is supposed to act.
Sounds like you're talking about Graham. Always looking for a flag.

Re: Saints over Bears, what did you like the most?

I love anytime we can get a win but this won't be only about what I like.

What I liked:

-Good pressure from the dline all game
-Fundamentally sound coverage for most of the game
-Commitment to run the ball even though it wasn't working that well
-Quick SMART decisions from brees throughout the game
-Very good route running and separation by our receivers

What I didn't like:

-Poor play by the kicking team (penalty and missed field goal)
-Poor interior line play by our guards and center. They were let off the hook a lot by the screen game and quick throws by drew.
-Poor edge control by our linebackers and dlineman (atlanta will look to attack this with receiver screens all game.)
-Stale unimaginative run plays. Our interior line is not very good so we need to disguise our runs a little better because they got no push against the bears

I would give our team B/B-.

ScottF,
Agreed. I hear you loud and clear but the Bears are still a NFL professional franchise, capable of beating any team in the league. A Jeffries, Matt Forte, Martellus Bennett etc aren't exactly Oakland Raider material. We started off sloppy however last night was a step in the right direction. The Saints are still a dangerous ball club when all 8 cylinders are clicking.

Trust and believe brother

Senio Kelemete subbed in for Ben Grubbs at certain times... I don't know if Grubbs was banged up or if Payton wanted a look at Kelemete for future reference.

I mean compared to most of the year, they did a much better job. Brees was able to step into his throws for the most part. I have been dogging Goodwin all year, he stinks. Grubbs isn't terrible, but he's not worth his big contract either.
