They'll either be in single coverage and one of them should be open often, or they'll have either Thomas and Fleener covered by a single linebacker. Of course all that hinges on the Oline giving enough time for the play to develop.
Use the pass to open up the run like they've been doing for years rather than the other way around like they tried to do in Minnesota.
BRILLIANT !!! Yes, Excellent plan, Utah, and yes, Im glad you pointed out, what most of us have forgotten in all the "we need balance; we need to run more" talk. -- Bullsh*t. WE HAVE TO PASS to set up the Run. Our O-Line has never been The Hogs. We have piglets. We cannot just run. Running the ball for us is a trick play. ESPECIALLY on the Goal Line, where we get stuffed every time. We're the only team in football, where goal-to-go from the 1 is a passing down.

We cant run.
We dont run.
We shouldnt try.
Stop pretending we can run.
Run only when its a surprise.

Lets call one running play, just for the novelty, and we can have the River Parish Disposal Kicking Tee Retriever of the Week run it.
It wouldnt be any more masturbatory than when we try to run on the goal line.
I would trade both Peterson AND Ingram for the best O-linemen we could get, and use Kamara & Travaris Cadet. We'd be better off.
I'm just being real.

-- All that said, its amusing that we are even talking about this game, as if having some strategy or plan will avoid the inevitable spanking we are about to receive. (We could have AP bring out the switch.) So lets award ourselves $5 gift certificates from Popeyes just for being such little super troopers. Bless our heart.

Mikey The Greek (or Jimmy the Mexican, whichever) says, Angry Patriots 56, Puny Saints 6. (we can kick more FGS
inside the 10)
I dont even see a point in playing Drew until we get Armstead & Strief back.
In fact, lets sit Michael Thomas, Kamara, and anyone worth their jock on D, if we have any.
And hope nobody else comes down with some rare medical condition, or drunk driving, or exzema, or double jointed psoriaosis etc etc blah blah.

Those 4th downs the Chiefs stopped, I doubt we can hold the same line.

Re: On To The Patriots

Brees designed runs. Totally confuse them. This would be part of my game plan. They would have no answer for it.

Stick to the basics coach Dennis. The basics.
I thought the same thing. I said to myself "DA thinks CJ(94) is better at zone coverage than SA(50)...Saints need a new DC"

Re: On To The Patriots

If they activate Harris it will be time to drop the saints defense in fantasy football if you haven't dropped them yet. That will show me they haven't learned nor came with a decent game plan or scheme to stop Brady. The last time we humiliated the Patriots in the dome we had Porter, Greer, and Sharper with a great defensive scheme to pressure Brady. Now all we have is hope and defensive coordinators that can't make adjustments to a offense.

Porter and Greer were out for that game vs Pats.

We had Mike McKenzie, Malcolm Jenkins, Chris McAllister, Randall Gay and Darren Sharper as DB's.
