Saints over Bears, what did you like the most?

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

I absolutely have a man-crush on having the "Hicks/Jenkins Rotation" over Center. That showed up in the run defense & the pass rush. Made the entire defense better; it all starts in the middle. Jenkins actually led the team in tackles last night.

A very, very close second is Pierre Warren's play...grant it, is was against Cutler & an inexperienced WR corps. But this was on MNF at Soldier Field. This MAN showed up and balled. Them other Saints secondary players better start gathering up material for their resumes...Warren is a NFL Playmaker (see Baltimore game at the goal line for further info). You Do Not let playmakers walk, regardless of where they are drafted or where they come from. Like...this...man.

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

I'm worried about a hangover too VP, but I think the players know Chicago is a weak team so I don't think they're beating their chests today.

We simply did what a contender is supposed to do. We beat a weak team by 3 scores at their house.

I thionk by now they all know thats all we really did. We played to our potential, nothing more.

If we can play to our potential we can beat any team not named Seattle. We'll need just a little extra to beat them.

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

I thought the final score was pretty, and so are our shiny gold helmets.
Beyond that, it was a garbage win over a garbage team.

I laud guys on here like Danno & Dizzle, who offer more nuts & bolts analysis, than me, but I am disturbed by how poorly our offense played, vs. a team that is already on vacation. You dominate a team for a half of football, you should have more than 7 points.

But more disturbing was when we were up by 3 TD's, and suddenly could not make a first down, and Payton did not go line diving to run clock. He was still calling Payton plays. At this same point, the defensive backfield was gearing up to take a dive. The Saints, to me, appeared to be trying their damndest to go '92 Oilers, but the Bears simply refused to walk thru the open door, rolled over, and played dead for us. About 30 other teams would have pulled a Hail Mary type comeback win over us.

Yall know me, well many of you. I'm practically a walking production of Up With People, when it comes to my Saints. (google it, kids) But lets not fool ourselves. We suck goat nuts, and our offense is especially flacid in pressure situations. We're horrible both ways, and I wont be surprised if both the Falcons, AND Tampa thump us.
...in our supposed house.

Hawthorne was amazing! Pierre Warren...wow! I thought Toon and Stills played well. I wanna see more of Toon. He runs well with the ball and can break tackles. I still think we should run more. Have to admit I always dogged Stills but he may be coming around.

Yep. We don't have a knockout punch.
We let teams hang around all game, and the good ones have come back and beat us.
The Bears self-destructed in front of our eyes, but even then, they still made it interesting at the end

Two things: O line and D line.

Both played to their abilities and the overall performance was a result.

I liked the fact that we fumbled and got the ball back before a score.
