It's almost as though Snead has been phased out of the offense, Brees used to look for him every chance he got.

We have had a few bad games in terms of 3rd down conversion, Brees has missed Thomas across the middle multiple times and just threw to a RB.

Killed us last week. We got some stops but could do nothing with it. Getting stops is hard to come by now so yeah, whenever we get one we have to make money.

No! No! No!

None of that matters!

Our team was perfect before the CBs went down!

I know, because the smart members of this forum never fail to point out the stupidity and ignorance of anyone not pumping 24/7 SUNSHINE!

Exactly. With the exception of the Panthers and Bills games our offense has been pretty sluggish except for the run and 2 minute drills. We beat teams without all star quarterbacks or with injured allstar QBs. A lot of room for improvement but I think our best offensive showing is yet to come. Not terribly worried without Lattimore in the picture because cams passing game has gotten piss poor. Injury has really hurt our run D against the run. This is a TOUGH game and if we don’t play on all cylinders we will lose.
A special teams run back for a TD WOULD be nice. When has that happened last?
We could just as easy be 5 and 6 right now if Rodgers, Cam, and Bradford were 100%.
