Re: Our Defense

I thought Julio was hurt and wasn't going to play. Just glad Tony Gonzalez
retired doesn't look like they have found a replacement for him.

Unfortunately the guy is made of tissue paper. He had to leave the game because he pulled his groin. He was super pissed about it to. Hopefully its nothing serious, the guy has the skills to be very good.

Re: Our Defense

Any Breaux doubters still out there?....anybody?...no? Didn't think so. This guy is the 100% real deal folks. And he's only a rookie to this league. He isn't perfect all the time and he catches a lot of undue flack when he makes a mistake, but if he were any other "traditional" rookie no one would even bat an eye at it. Meanwhile he just gets better and better with every week that passes. We got unbelievably lucky to have snatched him up before someone else did. Can't wait to see what he's gonna be like when he really masters playing DB in the NFL.

Re: Our Defense

Michael Irvin finally got something right;

The Falcons didn't do it themselves, the Saints forced all those errors!

Re: Our Defense

Pre-game, RR said that defence was "That close" to having a breakout performance, looks like he was right, at least for tonights game.

Hope this continues for the rest of the season!

Re: Our Defense

Coverage was better because pressure was better.
Their running game gaped us.
Freeman averaged 9 and Coleman averaged 10. That's terrible.
The turnovers got us over. Glad for it.
Breaux played well. Even made a play on the ball; a couple of plays on the ball.
I guess Ryan heard me and threw the cat fighting strategy out the window.
Great win!
Dallas and Atlanta...Can't think of a better 2 to win.

I have not watched the game yet so I can't comment on any specifics. But it goes to show how important the turnover battle is. Last week we had 2 picks but fumbled away the ball 3 times.
Its really hard to win ballgames when you turn the ball over.

Re: Our Defense

Seriously, if Breaux continues to improve, I think we are seeing the making of an elite all pro corner.
