Pretty much 100% spot on.

Good coordinators can compensate for a few holes here and there. And its true that we had an inordinate amount of injuries, but even so we shouldn't have been on pace for worst defense ever.

I don't see Carolina letting a young stud walk away from that talented D & Prince is simply too injury prone for my taste (we have two on the roster).

Re: Our defense

Trenches - they just get pushed all around. losing man on man battles

OLB/DE - setting the edge is a huge sore spot.

CB/LB/S - second level run support is lacking.

Saints defense is aggressively tentative. They rush in and stop then react to the action. Other teams are taking the game to them not the other way around

If they kept track of failed attempt to strip the ball vs making the tackle as the first defender making contact, the saints would be tops in the NFL.

we have plenty of issues but up front is number 1.

Big butted sand in their pants players are needed. Ones with attitude that love hurting people

I wonder when the NFL will bring professional football to Louisiana.

Re: Our defense

100's of problems on D. Our guys up front are super soft.
My suggestion? ... let em sweat out training camp in Thibodeaux, Hammond or McComb, MS.

Probably won't change anything but it will at least make me feel better .

Re: Our defense

Well today after the first two drives the defense settled in. the roblem needs to be addressed on offense first. Sorry but my backs ace and q(backwards) key does not work.

Our interior dline is fluffy bunny slipper soft. We need attitude up front...so I reckon ol dline coach has them in bubble wrap therapy during training camp?

Get them back down herein the swamp where they belong. Way past the point of embarrassed with our dline.
