Looking at the Arizona
play by play from week 1
2nd and 7 at ARI 23
(4:52 - 1st) B.Cooks right end to ARZ 19 for 4 yards (T.Mathieu)
The next was a incompletion by Drew that forced the FG
Cards second drive ended with
4th and 5 at ARI 38
(1:53 - 1st) D.Butler punts 30 yards to NO 32, Center-M.Leach, out of bounds
And in our next drive
1st and 10 at NO 42
(0:29 - 1st) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass incomplete short right to B.Cooks. Pass coverage by ARZ #21-Peterson
2nd and 10 at NO 42
(0:25 - 1st) K.Robinson left end to NO 44 for 2 yards (A.Okafor)
The next was a 4 yard pass to Ingram.
After a big lay by Carson on the cards third possession to Fells
1st and 10 at NO 18
(11:19 - 2nd) C.Palmer pass incomplete deep right to JO.Brown. PENALTY on NO-D.Breaux, Defensive Pass Interference, 17 yards, enforced at NO 18 - No Play. Penalty on NO-B.Browner, Defensive Holding, declined. Penalty on NO-D.Breaux, Illegal Contact, declined
This led to them scoring.
On our third possession
2nd and 3 at ARI 38
(8:39 - 2nd) D.Brees pass incomplete short middle to A.Johnson
Think that won't stall a drive? The next was a incompletion to Ingram which led to this
4th and 3 at ARI 38
(8:29 - 2nd) T.Morstead punts 37 yards to ARZ 1, Center-J.Drescher, downed by NO-W.Snead. PENALTY on ARZ, Defensive 12 On-field, 5 yards, enforced at ARZ 38 - No
Saved by a penalty and why did we not attempt a FG at Arizona's 38?
Brees threw a 2 yard pass to AUSTIN JOHNSON one play before the Coleman TD.
On the cards fourth drive
4th and 3 at ARI 43
(3:46 - 2nd) D.Butler punts 46 yards to NO 11, Center-M.Leach, fair catch by M.Murphy
And how do we respond?
1st and 10 at NO 21
(2:31 - 2nd) (Shotgun) PENALTY on NO-J.Evans, False Start, 5 yards, enforced at NO 21 - No Play
1st and 15 at NO 16
(2:12 - 2nd) D.Brees pass short left to B.Coleman to NO 20 for 4 yards (J.Powers)
2nd and 11 at NO 20
(2:00 - 2nd) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass short middle to B.Watson to NO 24 for 4 yards (D.Bucannon)
3rd and 7 at NO 24
(1:26 - 2nd) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass incomplete deep left to B.Coleman [M.Golden]
End of half but not before Arizona tried to get more points.
(15:00 - 3rd) C.Catanzaro kicks 52 yards from ARZ 35 to NO 13. T.Davison MUFFS catch, and recovers at NO 15. T.Davison to NO 25 for 10 yards (JA.Brown)
1st and 10 at NO 25
(14:53 - 3rd) D.Brees pass deep middle to W.Snead to ARZ 12 for 63 yards (T.Mathieu)
That was Snead's first target all game. However...
1st and 10 at ARI 12
(14:06 - 3rd) M.Ingram up the middle to ARZ 10 for 2 yards (F.Rucker, K.Minter)
2nd and 8 at ARI 10
(13:28 - 3rd) D.Brees pass short right to A.Johnson pushed ob at ARZ 7 for 3 yards (L.Woodley)
3rd and 5 at ARI 7
(12:51 - 3rd) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass short right to K.Robinson to ARZ 4 for 3 yards (M.Golden)
We kick a fg on 4th and 2 but see the questionable calls?
On the cards' next drive
4th and 5 at ARI 25
(10:33 - 3rd) D.Butler punts 47 yards to NO 28, Center-M.Leach. M.Murphy to NO 30 for 2 yards (A.Fua)
And how we respond
2nd and 10 at NO 30
(10:14 - 3rd) (Shotgun) K.Robinson up the middle to NO 36 for 6 yards (T.Jefferson)
3rd and 4 at NO 36
(9:35 - 3rd) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass short left to M.Ingram to NO 43 for 7 yards (M.Golden; T.Jefferson)
It appears who SEan preferred to run the ball on 2nd down
1st and 10 at NO 43
(9:02 - 3rd) K.Robinson up the middle to ARZ 49 for 8 yards (K.Minter). PENALTY on NO-Z.Strief, Offensive Holding, 10 yards, enforced at NO 43 - No Play
2nd and 20 at NO 33
(8:29 - 3rd) M.Ingram left tackle to NO 30 for -3 yards (C.Campbell)
Cooks got a 13 yard catch in the middle but we ended up punting.
Now this is where it gets interesting
1st and 10 at ARI 48
(5:28 - 3rd) A.Ellington up the middle to NO 42 for 10 yards (H.Kikaha). FUMBLES (H.Kikaha), RECOVERED by NO-D.Breaux at NO 38. D.Breaux to NO 38 for no gain (J.Nelson)
And this follows
1st and 10 at ARI 48
(3:33 - 3rd) M.Ingram left tackle to NO 49 for -3 yards (T.Mathieu)
2nd and 13 at NO 49
(3:01 - 3rd) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass short middle to M.Colston to ARZ 45 for 6 yards (T.Mathieu)
3rd and 7 at ARI 45
(2:27 - 3rd) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass short middle intended for M.Colston INTERCEPTED by R.Johnson at ARZ 30. R.Johnson to ARZ 40 for 10 yards (K.Robinson)
Back to back short pass targets to Colston, in which nothing was accomplihed in either of those passes.
So far we stopped two straight drives and followed it up with nothing but 3 points.
A big play from Carson to Fitz puts them in saints territory and we ended up holding to a FG but the cards ran back to back. Like they knew they would be okay going conservative some.
It's now gone from a 1 to a 4 point game
On our next posession
3rd and 2 at NO 28
(14:25 - 4th) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass deep left to B.Cooks to ARZ 42 for 30 yards (P.Peterson)
Big nonetheless could have gone either way given the target and who was covering. However.....
2nd and 10 at ARI 28
(13:10 - 4th) K.Robinson left tackle to ARZ 27 for 1 yard (J.Powers; A.Okafor
Drive stalled and we kick a FG
On cards next drive our missed opportunities begin to bite us
2nd and 8 at ARI 43
(11:13 - 4th) C.Palmer pass incomplete deep left to J.Nelson. PENALTY on NO-K.Wilson, Defensive Pass Interference, 23 yards, enforced at ARZ 43 - No Play
This would eventually lead to the Fells TD pass.
The next drive for saints
3rd and 4 at NO 26
(9:11 - 4th) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass short right to M.Ingram to ARZ 15 for 59 yards (R.Johnson). ARZ-R.Johnson was injured during the play
After a Brees sack
2nd and 11 at ARI 16
(8:17 - 4th) M.Ingram up the middle to ARZ 15 for 1 yard (R.Gunter, C.Redding)
Ingram would be targeted the next snap for a no yard screen that stalls the drive. FG
On the cards' next drive
4th and 7 at NO 38
(2:20 - 4th) D.Butler punts 35 yards to NO 3, Center-M.Leach, downed by ARZ-J.Bethel
And our offense is back on the field
2nd and 6 at NO 7
(2:07 - 4th) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass incomplete short right to M.Colston
3rd and 6 at NO 7
(2:03 - 4th) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass incomplete deep middle to M.Colston
punt. The next cards drive would be the game ender basically.
We allowed only five big plays after Arizona's first drive. Only one in the first half. In the second half we allowed three, two of which were scores. We had all the chances to score but in the first half we were wasting our drives on AUSTIN JOHNSON[what's that about Brees can turn anything into gold?] and in the second half running the football on second and long and targeting Colston. Two of TD drives of cards were a result of penalties, neither of whom were squarely on Browner. This is what frustrates me. The defense did not lose this game.
