What went right Sunday...

Well, it was a pretty painful loss to lose it in the 4th quarter like that in similar fashion that we're sadly becoming accustomed...

That said, wanted to create a thread focusing on the positives...

Despite being much maligned during the PreSeason when he was getting moved all over the place, Andrus Peat was a beast for us at the Left Guard position...

Peat had pancakes, he blew open some nice holes against one of the top defenses for Ingram (who for once trusted the hole would be there when he hit the hole)...

And he kept Brees unscathed up the middle...

So Hats Off to Andrus Peat...

Yeah, Peat played pretty well. Did give up some pressure here and there but it was a dramatic improvement from his preseason tape. The O-line on the whole was good, as has been pointed out. Michael Thomas is the real deal, and oh yeah, so are Cooks and Snead. This might end up being the best group of 3 WR's we've had..and Colston/Moore/Henderson were no slouches in their heyday. Brees was in rare form and I think it's safe to say that the BS preseason narrative about him being in decline was proven to be just that, BS.

I hesitate to bring up this last one because I'll probably get flamed for it...but, f*** it. Despite the 4th quarter meltdown, I still believe this is a better defense than we had last year. The youth and inexperience is painful right now, but I think they'll grow and progress as the season goes on. And if the damned pass rush would join the rest of the team on the field from now on then it'll make things a whole hell of a lot easier on those young pups.

Were gonna get tested again Sunday big time against a high powered QB
with some dangerous receivers. Jumping from the frying pan into the fire as they say.

How about Coby Fleener he lit it up. Wait a second I just realized that I'm watching my son play Madden.
Well since that cat is a bust, I will have to give my props to Andrus peat considering.

Brandin Cooks looks like he gets faster every year

Insane hustle by Michael Thomas to race down field and pick up Sneads fumble

And yeah Andrus Peat played really well, as did most ot the O line.

Re: What went right Sunday...

I counted 3 hits on Brees, and one was on a keeper. One hit looked like it could've been trouble, but he just popped right up, like he's made of rubber.

O-Line was MUCH Improved. I didnt notice Peat's pancaking, but great to hear. One great thing about sitting in 500, is you get a telestrator's view, so I did see us opening up some nice holes. And that screen to Ingram was the best screen we've had by anyone who isnt #23.-- Best screen in 2 years.

Not sure why you guys are digging at Fleener. I didnt see him drop anything super catchable. Mostly, Brees was going to the wideouts, who were LIGHTING IT UP---- This is a good thing. I have a feeling Fleener will shine another day.

For the suckage of the Defense, we did stuff many Raider runs. Tackling looks better, when we are in place. Also, some great open field tackling, in spots.

We just need to put it together. And do something, make a trip to Africa or Australia; or search graveyards for a large zombie who can play defensive front 7.

Oh, and except for 2 straight grounders to Cadet, & one overthrow, Brees was Brilliant. I dont know how it looked on tv, but he has not lost a step, and his timing, and also footwork in the pocket are lights out. Plenty of arm.

Great Thread, JP.

The Saints may have the best WR group in the NFL. The offense was great, could even be better if a running game can be sustained.
