I thought he would be but so far he's been below average. Bad angles, missed tackles (on crucial 3rd downs). Hadn't looked at his PFF grades as of late but I'm sure they aren't good. On the flip side, Vonn Bell has been playing a lot better. How much can we attribute this to Kurt & his "veteran presence "?

Hindsight is 20/20 however it's starting to look like the Saints may have over paid for Kurt. Long season ahead but I think at some point he'll help us win more defensive battles.

I think Monday night was a big confidence booster for the D at the very least.

Marcus Williams' PFF is at 60.2 which is "above average" according to their scale.

Coleman is at 54.7 - "average"

Vonn Bell is at 79.8 - "good"

I love your optimism. God bless you...

Yes, A complete game.

Hell... Two good games in a row. Yay!

I need to see a looooot more from the D to have any true optimism.

Hey Guido. I just made up a brand new batch of Kool-Aid if you want to come over for a drink.

For the compensation given this off season to Coleman in Free Agency, "average" (C) isn't good enough. He must play better at the position.

Hope we’re not getting too fat and happy during our bye week because we could very possibly go 0-3 over these next couple of games (@Ravens, @Vikings, Rams). Brutal stretch.

Ravens D was outstanding today. Thought the Titans had a good O line?

11 sacks today however Marriota and that offense isn't very creative or dynamic. Ravens will be tested big time with Brees and company.
