It's preseason anyway. The friggin' game dosen't mean anything. It's a quick game to evaluate talent and see who can and can't contribute. I'm glad to hear about the D. I hope the backups can improve.

Our pass rush was great a few plays. Then again, on a few plays we looked content to just contain the qb between the hashes. I dunno.

Other than a coupla plays, I thought Bouman had an ok game. He did a decent job picking up the blitz, in my opinion.

First team offense, 3 points. First team offense, 3 points. First team offense, 3 points. Against a vanilla defense. Of barely a playoff team. 3 points. It's good to know so many have no problem with this. Notice, I said first team OFFENSE. 3 points. On a 50 yard field goal. At least Carney is in mid-season form. Let me make the excuse for next game, WE PLAYED THE DEFENDING SUPERBOWL CHAMPS. Now we got that one out the way.

Nice analogy.

I said something similar a few days ago.

I truly believe these people WANT the Saints to win.....but when they don't, they are (after the frustration of the loss has passed) instilled with a bit of silent "i told ya so" confidence that they can display about Brooks and Haslett.....even if only PART of the blame can be put on them..

It reminds me of something that happened a few years ago at work. This old man (not my boss, but naturally as someone who's much older and more experienced, you tend to think of them in a similar manner) that I work with was pissed off about something I did ( I won't go into detail, but even though it was a rookie mistake on my part and I had only been there 3 months, I will say that his agitation was justified. Especially since it directly involved one of his clients).........and after that incident, he pretty much ignored my very existence 90% of the time. He only spoke to me when he absolutely had to......and often times would go an entire day with saying only about 2 words to me. To put it mildly, he was holding a grudge. So this went on for a few months...

One day, though, I come into work at 10 AM (supposed to be there at 8 ). In another stupid move of mine...I decide to "fudge" a bit.......putting down that I got there at 9 AM.......and in return, i'd stay till 6 instead of 5. Well the next day, he goes off on the matter when it's just him and me around...........telling me how that kinda bull**** could get me in trouble and stuff....and how i was "on my own" from now on. Needless to say, I learned a lot about life on my first few months on that job...

To this day, I still work with that old man....and actually everything is cool between us (at least it is). But the whole point of that story was the fact that he all of a sudden knew I existed when he saw something he wanted to ***** about.......but when I wasn't doing anything shady.....I might as well have been a ghost..

We were also running a vanilla offense. No motion by the WRs. Very basic plays. No doubt, there is much room for improvement.

But we're talking about 1 quarter of football. In a preseason game no less. I think I've watched enough football over the years to understand you can't draw too many conclusions.

The offensive line has a lot of new blood. They need to use this preseason to get on the same page. This was to be expected. From my vantage point, they got a much bigger push than the previous year. Very good sign that Deuce will have a monster year.

Let's not jump the gun.

a lot of us can only base our take on the game,(without seeing it) on what we read from you guys or hear on the news........
and if you were in our shoes, you just may do the same.........
anyway, thanks for the observation...............it's good the 1st stringers are holding their own and probably will be out for blood come carolina time, but i am still disappointed in the 2nd and 3rd stringers. defense to be precise.......these are the ones who will have to step up when we need em, and we will need em.................smitty

Wait, you need to see the game to know the first team offense scored 3 points? Hhmm, imagine that.
