Game Day - Opening Day: Oakland Raiders vs New Orleans Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think the O-line really stood up to the test for the most part. Really bright spot in my book...

We played our asses off.

I'll give you that, the Offense definitely looked batter than I had expected. The O line held up for the most part. But the D...man..It's just downright disgusting. It takes all shine on what the Offense did. I don't blame anyone for not seeing the bright side after this game. This was a win, that we gave away. It stings and people are pissed and I cant fault them.

(not directed at you Champ) All you other holier than thou people need to get off your high horse or go ahead and ride your ass out of here. Last time I checked this is a PUBLIC forum. If you can't stand the heat, get out. People can be as pissed as the want to be.

Yeah I was impressed. Though Brees was moving well or they would have had more sacks I thought. Im not sure how good the Raiders front 4 is though.

Thank you pherein and CM - I have no hate for anyone here and how boring this site would be if everyone left or if everyone just agreed with each other. It's easy sometimes to be disrespectful and argumentative here - I know I've been guilty. We just have to remember that we're all saints fans here and frustrated by this loss.

Great teams find ways to win. The Raiders are not a great team, we just found a way to lose like we have for 3 straight seasons.

Laurinitus should not be starting, Stephone Anthony is much, much better than him.

Back in the day we used to find ways to win, even when it was improbable. I agree.

Re: Game Day - Opening Day: Oakland Raiders vs New Orleans Saints

No adjustments by the DC. It didn't take but 1/2 a game for Oakland to figure him out. It's not the players. Jim Scwarts( I'll use him because he's a 4-3 guy just one of many out there) would be able to take the same players we have and create a decent D. Allen changes Anthony from a MLB to an OLB because he don't think Anthony is the answer in the middle and brings in a slower aging veteran stunting any type of hope or impact Anthony could have. I didn't like the Anthony pick but he has grown some on me but to do what Allen done hurt him. Allen is a very unproven DC and for Payton to bring him in the first place wasn't the smartest move to begin with. He don't have anywhere the coaching ability as a Gregg Williams, he's the low man on the totum pole as far as DC's go.

Re: Game Day - Opening Day: Oakland Raiders vs New Orleans Saints

I'm not sure if I can continue to be so heavily invested in the games every week. It just hasn't been worth putting other things in life on hold to make sure I don't miss the game.
