Re: The future look bright!!

I don't know what kool-aide everyone is drinking but I seen nothing that leads me to believe we are improved over last year.

Yeah there are a couple of players that looked like we did well in the draft with but we do that every year or so.

Euphoria,

Nothing?? Rankins speed and quickness off the line? Davison push into the backfield? Edebali ability to sack the QB by 3 Mississippi? Waay less defensive penalties throughout the game? Inside run, ability from Danny Lasco? Erik Harris (safety) ability to close on the defender in space? Jack Allen looked good in the second half @ the center position. PJ's instinct to make a play on a screen ?? How about TommyLee on that jet sweep (2 point conversion)? We have far more than a couple of players that are improved this year @ pre season game #1 vs last season.

This team is headed in the right direction (specifically on defense), but to say you have seen nothing is quite surprising.

Re: The future look bright!!

Im watching the first half now.
Bad KO timke for me last night so only saw the 2nd half.

If nothing else was seen last night the improvment on 3rd Downs was there to see.

Got gauged a couple of times on the run but look better overall.
Nobody is saying this is the second coming of the early 2000 Ravens but with this offense it doesnt need to be. get somewhere in that 12-20 realm and the Saints will win more than they loose.

Plenty to work on,a pissed off coach but some good spots too.
Dont want everything looking pretty through the start of preseason. that normally goes to players heads. Keep them hungry until September

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Re: The future look bright!!

Anyone forgetting that Brees was only in the game for three plays?

Or that Brady, Edelman and Gronk weren't?
