Saints over Bears, what did you like the most?

Saints over Bears, what did you like the most?

I thought there were several things that I really liked.

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”.

What I liked was running more of the base 3-4 defense with Haralson and Humber at OLB. We were able to use Galette in his best role: situational pass rusher when we went to the four man fronts.

Not impressed yet. Hard to tell since the Bears suck. It's foolish to think we turned any type of corner. It's a joke if we make the playoffs, but if we win the Superbowl... I will shut up and be excited.

Colston, who played like a competent NFL receiver for the first time in a long while. No drops, fumbles or other major screw ups.

Middle of the O-line played very well.

defensively I liked the play of Frederick and Vacarro a lot in the secondary. Vacarro is much better back in his old role as hybrid corner/safety. John Jenkins looked pretty good too. Everyone else has been mentioned already I am sure.

I liked Bears O-line and Cutler's ability to recognize the blitz.
I may be crazy but this game can hurt us vs Atlanta. I'm not worried about Keenan Lewis (he said something about bears that I liked) but rest of the team... Don't get overconfident. CHI team is pure garbage. ATL is playing better then most of the people think.

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

we beat the team we should have beat and did it right. i am not taking anything away from this game except the bears are done for the season and really do not look like a team. watch the off season waiver wire.

falcons will not go down easy as we all know.

ask me after that one

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

Whatever Payton did or said to motivate them during the week, he did the right thing. There was none of the lethargy or disinterest or spoiled attitude that we have seen all year. They looked like the normal Sean Payton Saints that we are used to seeing. They attacked and attacked, and played pedal to the metal football.

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.

Pressure. When we can get pressure, especially right up the middle, everything else will fall in place. It was great to see that last night.

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

Putting the starters on notice isn't enough ... They need to be permanently sidelined if they cannot compete.

Literally a bunch of guys off of the practice squad cover far better than our beloved starters. No time to learn the system no time to mesh nothing , just follow your assignment and make plays ....

This speaks volumes on our starters inability to perform adequately when guys off of the street come in and Make it look so easy.
