Re: Grading the Saints

Payton has always been horrible at in game changes. Horrible at attacking other teams weaknesses. Brees and a lot of talent helped him overcome some of that. Now, it's painfully obvious. And actually has been since he came back from suspension. The league knows what he's going to do. The team has not bought what he's selling. And will not. We saw the opposite of that on display today. Dressing 3 WR's in a passing offense and being absolutely unstoppable. No one outside of New England fans can name 7 people on their team. Belichick is the best coach in modern NFL history. Hands down.

Re: Grading the Saints

Here's some PFF grades:

TOP 5 GRADES:
CB Marshon Lattimore, 89.0 overall grade

QB Drew Brees, 88.0 overall grade

DE Cameron Jordan, 87.0 overall grade

DE Alex Okafor, 81.9 overall grade

DT Sheldon Rankins, 78.5 overall grade

PERFORMANCES OF NOTE:
QB DREW BREES, 88.0 OVERALL GRADE
While he missed a handful of throws, Brees was let down a number of times by his receivers. Whether it was via the three drops or the handful of contested catches they were unable to make, Breesí receiving corps could have easily pushed their quarterback over 400 yards with a little help.

WR TED GINN JR., 39.8 OVERALL GRADE
Ginn was the main culprit on the day. He was targeted six times and gained only 24 yards on those targets with a dropped pass. Heís never been much in traffic and that was yet again the case today.

S KENNY VACCARO, 34.2 OVERALL GRADE
With trade rumors swirling, if the Saints were trying to showcase Vaccaro to get something in return, they did a poor job of it. He missed two tackles, had a holding penalty, and was beaten a couple other times in coverage.

CB MARSHON LATTIMORE, 89.0 OVERALL GRADE
While the defense as a whole yielded 400-plus passing yards, Lattimore was only responsible for 28 of those. He had two of the Saints four pass breakups on the day and yielded only one catch for more than five yards.

"When you get into one of these groups, there's only a couple of ways you can get out. One, is death; the other, is mental institutions."

Re: Grading the Saints

They need to trade BREES NOW!!!

He isn't going to be here when the Saints make another SB run anyways so get rid of him. Load up on picks we need to get younger just not on D but everywheres. We are a sinking ship might as well sink the ***** and start building a fresh new one. Which we should have done last year.
