The Saints ran 22 plays -- nearly one-third of their total -- with four receivers and a running back.

One of those receivers was always a tight end and almost always Ben Watson, lined up in the slot position.

In the Saints' second-most frequent formation, the three-receiver set, the tight end was on the line of scrimmage in his traditional position.

Watson got virtually all of the snaps in both sets. Of the 66 snaps Watson played overall, he was a traditional tight end 36 times and lined up as "Y" slot receiver (or a hybrid tight end) 30 times.

He will play a huge role this year if we take anything from the opener

He has the same problem that most of our receivers have......he doesn't get much separation.

I am surprised the saints have not used him more still.

Here are two people that have no clue how good Watson has always been and remains to this day. I repeatedly told everyone that kept going on about Josh Hill that Hill couldn't carry Watson's jock. The fact that Watson played 66 snaps shows that Payton agrees.
