Shotgun snaps continue to be an issue for Saints in training camp

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; For me, I'm actually tired of the shoot outs. You can't outscore everyone. What happened to those 20-10 type scores?...

Since you put it that way, if he does that a couple of times early in the season, everyone we play'll be looking over their shoulders regardless of which way they're facing on the field.

AP doesn't run well from the shotgun, he needs an i-formation to maximize his abilities.

That was one of the problems with Norv Turner's playbook in Minnesota.

Re: Shotgun snaps continue to be an issue for Saints in training camp

saints have lived in the shot gun. Getting Drew under center and going with a more traditional set and try to pound the rock to set up the pass will cause teams to open up the field and cut down on stupid mistakes.

The OL is built for this and it is time to use them to their strength

once the OL is back to all starters on board then start using the shot gun more.

this will pay off down the road.

Payton's going to literally snap with a shotgun. Centers take cover.

Those don't work against elite offenses.
