Game 1 good notes?

Thomas Morestead punted very well, every FG was made, Fleener caught the ball, Cam Jordan is on pace for 16 sacks!, Ted Ginn caught the ball (I don't recall any drops), no turnovers on offense, I didn't yell at the misses or the kids, I did drink my vodka from a half full saints cup too.

Ramczyk - played well considering who he had in front of him.
Lattimore - he provided blanket coverage. Big plays were opposite his side.
Banjo - he looked good all of pre season, played well last night.
Thomas -best punter in the game.
Jordan .. Cam always brings his A game.

Fleener finally showed up.

That's all I got.

I didn't get pissed off enough to break my new TV.

I literally don't understand it, Theilen ran a crossing route and a corner route. Those were the extent of the routes he ran, PJ was in trail position every time.

If he had stayed with Theilen for an extra second, our D line would have got there.

Are we going to have to draft a CB for the 11th straight year? I had high hopes for PJ and he looked as bad as Harris.

Re: Game 1 good notes?

I still have a bitter taste in my mouth to think about positive. This game we needed to win, had the talent to win but with bad schemes and plans for this game, we lost. It look like Sam Bradford knew every defensive play call when simply he was targeting Harris whenever he felt any threat. Offensive was no better, we in the red zone and we relied more on a rookie when we have 2 qualified vets on the bench.

OH this was to be positive? sorry

Surprisingly enough the saints defense managed not to have a complete stinker on the score board.

This could have been a 40+ point game for the vikings

CAM
Our draft looks pretty good so far.
Rankins looked good.
FA Klein was a great signing.
Banjo a ST beast.
Lutz is the real deal
Morstead is otherworldly leg alien.

Klein was impressive especially in run support. Smart of us to grab him after division rival Carolina coached him up. Might be the best move of the offseason, we could potentially be set at the MLB position for the next 5 years.

Re: Game 1 good notes?

Some things I thought were positive.
Fleener made some fantastic grabs.
Ramczyk coulda looked worse considering who he was up against.
Tommy Lee established himself as a deep threat.
Ingram looked great in the passing game.
Klein looked like a field general.

That's about all I could think of.
