Re: Playcalling improvements

I thought the game plan was really good vs Miami.

It appeared as though we were content with dink and dunk. Miami's strength of their defense is their pass rush and as you saw we had issues protecting Brees for a good bit of his drop backs.

So calling for the short quick pass plays was very smart.

I'm really liking how Brees really hasn't forced the ball very much this season.

Re: Playcalling improvements

Not sure if they did this more than once. But I noticed one play with AP in the backfield and the play call was a pass with AP staying in to block. He didn't do very well but the fact they called a pass play with him in seemed to be a break from the norm.

The shuffle pass touchdown was a beaut.
Agreed, Kamara just seems to find space where there isn't any. Then he accelerates very quickly.

I felt even if we won, without some new looks and getting Kamara heavily involved we were going nowhere. I was starting to think Payton was just going through the motions but it looks like he still cares.
