Re: How the Saints salvaged their secondary and became a legitimate NFC threat

Y'all take the time to read this article. Someone outside of a couple of our own beat writers took the time to honestly evaluate the current state of the Saints' defense.

-----------------------------------------

When the Saints started this season with back-to-back losses, giving up an average of 32.5 points per game, it was easy to chalk 2017 up as more of the same. With a defense still mired in futility for the better part of the last decade, there was little reason to believe this year would be any different.


In Week 3 though, a switch. The seemingly hapless Saints defense went into Carolina and held the Panthers to only 13 points. Then they shut out the Dolphins in London. And finally this past week, they scored as many touchdowns on defense (3) as the Lions scored on offense. Itís been one of the most head-scratching turnarounds in this early season. Looking at the talent on this roster though, and the advanced stats on how theyíve played the last three games, itís unlikely they ever revert to the dismal form Saints fans have come to expect.

Read the rest here ...
