No issue with that given the parameters. Once again, my issue is with those who project regular season expectations based upon an otherwise meaningless preseason game. I wasn't happy about the defensive performance either, but I know that it no relevance upon what we will see come week one.

No worries. I expect great wailing & nashing of teeth on which fringe players should/shouldn't be on the 53. Wouldn't miss it.

Re: Saints vs Vikings Game Day Thread

I’m not worried. It’s preseason 1 and honestly we never look that hot in preseason. These position groups will gel soon enough. Considering the fact Minny was playing their starters and appeared to be playing more to win rather than evaluate.
Only player that stood out as a Negative is Davenport. With his draft status I expect more.
I really can’t wait to see Butler out there this week. If he continues to stud we are going to be a nightmare.

Trey smith better not drop another ball . Butler is in his head already.

3quan still having the occasional mental lapse ... carry over from his rookie year. By the way, Tre is a "Z" receiver & Butler is the "X".

If anything, Kirkwood (X)needs to pick up his game because Emmanuel isn't going away.

Yes just a pun at trey, I would like to see him ( Smith ) stay healthy to see what he can really do to help MT.

I think Tre is a third year guy. Looks like same goes for Davenport. Could be a good thing come contract time.

I they are in year 2 both of them both were hurt most of last year. Itís got to improve both . When trey came back healthy he struggled to get open but so did MT that was taken out the game with doubles and triple zones on his asre . Daring Brees to beat them with someone else. Now a TE in the mix will unleash the beast of this offense.
