Random Musings by the Dude

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; OK so your QB is not 100%, even still bruised rotator cuff.... OK so the o-line has aged vets on that play about 75% of their potential from a few years ago... OK so rookies are trying to rotate on ...

OK so your QB is not 100%, even still bruised rotator cuff....
OK so the o-line has aged vets on that play about 75% of their potential from a few years ago...
OK so rookies are trying to rotate on your o-line...
OK so the WR talent poole is about 1/2 what it was even a year ago...

THEN Why come up with a gameplan that forces your QB to hold the ball for 10 seconds for a passing play to develop???

Why jeopardize your partially injured QB?
Why allow your o-line to be exploited drive after drive?
Why put your QB in situations where no one is open and he tries to force it!?

If you know your WR won't get separation, why put them in finesse patterns when timing patterns, slants and fades with quick release is what they can accomplish?

I'm completely confused with our game-plan on offense.

Yep..team is effed, season is effed. Some tough changes have got to be coming but at this point, something drastic needs to be done.

Cos Seany baby isn't the only bad coach? The krewe left behind to do the job was also not good.

Me, too. Did y'all know that Ingram has more touches (92) than every player on the offense besides Brees with the next closest KRob with 43?

Think about that. Mark Ingram is the center of our offense now.

With our patch-work NFL o-line and a running back who's claim to fame is running behind Bama's NFL-caliber o-line in college, we sit and wonder why we can't outscore anyone.

Re: Random Musings by the Dude

OK. I'm willing to admit that the Saints have some room for improvement.

But it's nothing that good coaching can't fix. Sean needs a totally new posse.

Is there any way to quadruple like this?

Re: Random Musings by the Dude

Sean Payton is a great offensive mind. But I think he came up with some great ideas and hasn't really been innovative since. He just keeps trying to plug new guys into these same schemes. Defenses have caught up with this. Hell Malcolm Jenkins was reading his playbook all day. He knew exactly when we were running a screen, when we were running the ball. We are predictable in formation and personnel.

Sean just keeps trying to do the same things over and over but with lesser personnel and/or diminishing skills from key players.

Well you'd be the only one confused. 31 other teams aren't confused at all.

Ingram is about to play easier run defenses coming up. Arizona, Carolina, and Philadelphia can stop the run. Dallas, Idk.
