I'm not sure I've ever seen a defense this badly depleted. It almost feels like our defense is cursed. Yet somehow we are finding ways to win games. The defense is staying competitive(I know they lost control towards the end). I think people need to just shut up about how Payton needs to go, because I can promise you that the grass isn't always greener.
Well said hitta !!!

Re: Five Takeaways From the Game...

These DBs are going to be good once they get a year under their belt. Add a veteran for tutoring and most of them could start. Our backups at that position are better than I expected. Love to see them if we could get pressure.

Offense is great again.

I think we have a kicker. Yes he has a crappy record but they have asked a lot out of him. I think Payton is trying to toughin him up mentally with these long attempts. If he can make a few of the long ones it is great for his confidence and the short ones should be easy. He missed one yesterday but most all others were a long shot.

Re: Five Takeaways From the Game...

I have to agree...

its not always greenier and as long as there is progress and development going on that you can see. I find its hard to replace them.

Defense progressing no matter how slow. There is progress. We are starting to see talent peek is head out from the younger players.

I don't get it JP.
I thought Cam Jordan had a great game.

My main takeaway was that we blew a huge lead, and that typically spells a loss for us. But we bounced back and won it anyway.

That was huge in my book.

Re: Five Takeaways From the Game...

I think eventually you are going to have a group of people in the booth that will have the authority to dispute close or bad calls by the Ref's and they should be reviewable and or challengeable and no limits. May not be able to get them off the field but there has to be something to mitigate the damage. Scarry how the lead was blown some bad calls contributed to that. Still have to play 60 minutes without that drop off.

Re: Five Takeaways From the Game...

Takeaways:
Our young defense has potential.
Our kicker has all the talent to succeed at a high level in the NFL.
Our O-line has to chip and bring in extra blockers to protect Drew. A first round draft pick is not too high next year with a limited number of talented guards in the draft.
Drew is still The Man.
The Dome still rocks.

Hills TD catch was awesome! Talk about serious focus. Did you not see that? It was one of the better catches I've seen.

The refs didn't get to decide this game, probably the reason for the random drug test to Lutz

There was a fantastic photo of the catch on the Saints Instagram. Unfortunately I don't know how to get it up here in an easy way.
