On offense, most Saints observers expected some breakdowns along the offensive line due to the heavy turnover of personnel and they did occur, but again mental mistakes and turnovers did the Saints in before the game was barely into the second quarter.
No matter what Saints coach Jim Haslett says publicly, he was totally disappointed in the Saints effort. And how could he not be.

Just a year ago I asked former Oakland Raiders coach and current ABC broadcaster John Madden what he looked for in preseason that would give him an indication that a team was headed in the right direction.

Madden said that winning pre-season games is not totally important, but he said that good teams always play pretty well when their first string units are in.

I have to be totally honest, I was really surprised about just how easily the Seahawks took it to the Saints Friday night. The 34-15 score was no indication of just how dominant the Seahawks were when the first string units went up against each other head-to-head.
Very interesting......


I have seen over the past few years that the better teams in this league play well in the preseason and they are hitting on virtually every cylinder by the time the regular season starts. If you start to see a team that makes plenty of mental errors, they miss tackles, have assignments mistakes and play sluggishly during the pre-season, they normally carry that over to the early part of the regular season. The better teams don’t seem to miss a beat when they line in up in Game 1 of the regular season."
The Saints do not have to worry about missing a beat , when they cannot even find the rhythm ...

We need to find the rythm at the beginnin of the season and go with it threw out the season so we can get to the playoffs . . .
