What sucks is that we haven't been above .500 since January 2014. We're going on 3 years of losing football.

Which is why I was so confused when we gave Payton a 5 year extension...

Yay mediocrity....

Re: How about that defence?

Breaux certainly didn't have a great game, but it's not like he was absolutely terrible either. it's not like Thomas was catching 20 and 30 yard passes all game. Breaux had decent coverage on the short touchdown pass, but Thomas is one of the better wide receivers in the NFL. Breaux is just coming back from a broken bone in his leg, so he will get better. Still, I think Breaux performed better than others we could have had covering Thomas. The push for the Saints defensive line was awesome to see! Also that the D actually made some plays on the ball!

Re: How about that defence?

I have to say that we probably have the best bend but don't break defense in the nfl. Thanks to our vastly improved D Line, we're finally getting more pressure from others not named Jordan, and we're getting the sacks when we need them. Plus our run D has been STOUT.

Our achilles is that our secondary and LBs in coverage still have a lot of work to do. Many of Simien's passes went uncontested and their YAC's were ridiculous. At times it looked like half the D was playing zone and the other half was playing man. If we can get that fixed, we'll have our best defense since G3.

On a sidenote, our ST sucks - both return and coverage. McMahon has to GO! That will be my new signature.

McMahon needs to GO!

Yep, those crossing routes/slants were killing us.

It's like a see-saw. We can't have both ends UP at the same time. Very frustrating.

This is the most impressive crappy defense I've ever seen.

Safety play was poor over all.
