this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Defensive coordinator Dennis Allen called several blitzes vs. the Vikings' Sam Bradford and the Patriots' Tom Brady.

Defensive coordinator Dennis Allen called several blitzes vs. the Vikings' Sam Bradford and the Patriots' Tom Brady. The two passers brushed most of those attempts aside and sliced up the Saints' defense. It was almost laughable how poorly the Saints implemented the scheme in Weeks 1 and 2.

Three games later, the Saints have become one of the NFL's most successful pressure defenses. It's one of the primary reasons the Saints are above .500 (3-2) for the first time since 2013.
A very good read!

Re: Dennis Allen's blitzes have Saints in rush to get to quarterback

That third and short for the Lions deep in their own territory was disguised very well by the Saints D. Klein showed blitz then dropped into coverage (Stafford was eyeballing the TE). Shortly there after, the walls caved in and it was sack city.

Everyone (specifically the secondary) did a nice job on that play and led to points.

Keep grinding young D.

They will get Green Bay's best on Sunday. Hundley is no slouch. Live arm. Athletic. And he has some play makers to get the ball to. I hope they can get some hits on him early.
