Where Saints ranked in 2014: Offense was No. 1 in NFL -- but not really

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; get a few pieces up front solidify the pocket and those ints will drop back down. pocket integrity has been shaky at best for the past few years. Drew has to be able to step up...

When you cant get a first down with the game on the line to run out the clock in multiple games you are not a good offense

When you start too many games - three and out, three and out....

When everyone knows what play you are going to run by your formation and backfield personel...

When you try to do what worked for you in 2011...

When people who show promise - lelito and that rookie fb ride the pine instead of getting further opportunity to shine...

Not the stats you posted but the average points per game were higher, not only because of the pick 6's, but the other 14 ints he threw a number of them resulting in a very short field for the opposing team.

Agree these are valid points. I recall similar frustrations, especially #2. It seemed we treated our first offensive possessions as throw aways.

The reason we aren't scoring like pre-2011 is because we aren't getting help from any other phase of the game. The Saints haven't scored a non-offensive TD since 2012.

how much of the offense was garbage yards, after the game was no longer in doubt?

How much of the offense was generated in the 1st quarter? What was the End-of-Half success rate? the 2 minute offense success rate?

How about some real analysis?

If this were the Saints / Cardinals our Offense would have put up two 3 and outs or stalled drives by now. Not kidding...thats how I see the offense we have.

Take a way half of those turnovers & we would be playing today instead of the panthers.

Not many garbage yards at all, probably on par with every other team.
