Re: Forecast: Saints problems are from lack of talent, not play-calling

Ok, right, talent....
and we have rookies starting too......

What about the veterans on this team GASSED out and who look out of shape? What about the veterans fumbling, throwing INT's, missing tackles, missed kicks, shank punts, defenders taking the wrong angles, and veterans producing tons of flags without the help of our rookies' inexperience?

How about some sound fundamental football? I think we'd accept a 4 win season if it wasn't riddled with flags, fumbles, drops, int's, missed tackles, missed kicks (don't even get me started on special olympics teams).

When you run the ball, hold onto it with both hands. When sacked, tuck it in. When passed to, catch the ball with two hands before running!!!!

My nephews high school team looks 10 times more disciplined then the Saints do right now.

Here's also a novel idea - how about a gameplan that matches our talent AND or the talent that is injured, half broke, or practically incapable to performing at their position?

Throw this playbook away. That is a start.

When defenders know our plays, and from what I've seen they do, that's play calling, not players

Hopefully the Big Lebowski doesn't drop Kikaha in coverage 50% of the time tonight.

Re: Forecast: Saints problems are from lack of talent, not play-calling

Couldn't disagree more with the article. Really there is no base of facts to assert this position either. All I see is another person's opinion that someone else is wrong.

Fact is Payton called plays in 2011 before he was injured. Once he got hurt Carmichael took over and we broke records. Payton was not a bad play caller but everyone on this site can predict the play-call simply by looking at down and distance combined with the formation we are running. If we can do that you bet your a$$ that any DC in the league can as well.
