I'd like to positive and say that while the Bucs definitely mailed it in for the No. 1 pick, can you really blame the defense so cavalierly when Brees threw three interceptions...

Even the 85 Bears can't overcome poor field position and boneheaded interceptions, fumbles, turnovers...

Offense was ranked in the top, defense was ranked at the bottom in every stat, so yes I can

Offense had some bad games, but the defense was turrible every snap just about...

I don't think there's one single stat where our defense ranked better than our offense.

You can march up and down the field all day, but when you can't punch it in on short yardage or you're turning it over like we did, then it's not just the defense that's a problem...

If SP wants the kid he will reach from 13 to get him. he does not care about paying to much for a RB. i have a sneaky feeling he might just do something like this in round 1. not that i would mind really. i would be happy with another safety too.

Well we were ranked 9th in scoring offense, so that pretty much says our 31st ranked defense is the problem... 5th worst defense(points allowed), giving up 424 points for the season...

Re: Unsign Ingram and Draft....

Sure the D was a problem.
Also for sure the O had issues.

That is why we keep debating, but all agreeing, that the O-line needs upgrading. That is the fact. No matter what grade the Offense had in the NFL. No matter what superior grades the Offense had compared to the Defense.

Well without the offense being great, all of the years under Sean Payton would have SUCKED.

Re: Unsign Ingram and Draft....

More Ugly Truths for Saints Offense...

Saints were third worst in drives ending in turnovers...

Saints Touchdown to Turnover Ratio was 33:17, a little worse than 2:1...

Offense shares as much of the loss for the season, running up the field and not being able to convert on the goal is as effective in winning games as having four three and outs and punting...

You gotta get it done when the opportunities are there...

Re: Unsign Ingram and Draft....

Need to go back to basics and get the lines on both sides stout. We can invest in all the fun toys later.....every draft has them. We can't fix everything in one offseason,so why not focus on the O line and the D front 7. Btw, I think Ingram should be resigned. He has proven he is capable of handling the work load.
