Saints/Seattle Preseason Game Impression
 
Not too much different from last year. Our defense is good enough to get us some stops but not great when their backs are to the wall. Our offense is mistake-ridden and consistently puts our defense on the field far more than they need to be.

Run-blocking seems a low average. Pass-blocking a bit below that. Deuce seems to be running with purpose but keeps getting stood up. I watched them try to strip him on almost every play - success will eventually happen in that situation.

Aaron Brooks is still taking eight-step drops and rolling INTO the rush. He is still locking onto Joe Horn. Horn dropped an easy pass.

Bouman rots. Plain and simple.

Frenzy, you're such a pessimist. Didn't you read all the reports? Everyone is doing great in camp. There's no reason to be down. Everything will be great. We are the elite of this division. There is no reason we won't be in Detroit for the Superbowl. Everything is in place. THIS is the year we put it all together. Preseason means nothing. Forget what happened when we looked this bad in preseason last year. Etc. Etc. Etc.

So that I am not ENTIRELY pessimistic. Mike McKenzie plays like a demon and is laying the wood. Bockwoldt came to play as well.

OK, so I'm a pessimist. Where the hell were Grant and Howard? One play where Grant ALMOST gets it done?!? Thought this was out STRENGTH? I'm so frappin sick of off-season hype. I fall for it every year, and every year I get my heart broken.

This sucks....

The thing to look out for is can our first team offense drive down the field, and can our first team defense stop Seattle's first team from doing the same. Outside of this, everything else is a chance to see fan favorites and hopefuls play against practice squad fodder and guys who won't be in the league next week.

but now it all matters huh saintswhodi. way to cover all the angles. the offense was terrible besides deuce tonight. i am going off stats and the drive charts because i haven't seen the game yet. i thought from the drive stats the d was much better then last years first preseason game. if i remember we gave up like 150 yards on the ground. a lot of it in the first half too.

Exactly right spk. Read it again. This is what I said to look for:

No and no. Thanks for reminding me I said that. :D

Your wrong on the second part of that, Whodi. Our first team D, STUFFED their first team O. Plain and simple. They got their points off the Deuce fumble. Other than that, our D pwned 'em.

Oh, then I am glad to hear that. My whole argument has been our offense killed our D anyway, this game just carries over from last year. Glad to be wrong on the second part.

FrenzyFan 08-12-2005 08:41 PM

Cannot argue with that at all. Our offense scored those points against us tonight. Wasn't the D. People can rag our D for allowing those points, but its the O who put us there.

FrenzyFan 08-12-2005 08:47 PM

Just watched Haslett's half-time sound-byte and he praised the defense and blamed the offense for the points scored in the first half.

For what it's worth

I know it's the scrubs playing right now, but Rodney Leisle has nearly sacked the QB 3 of the last 4 plays. He seems to be a player.
