Saints vs. Ravens

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Oh yeah. I think I've heard about that actually. Isn't that the same principle that suggests there's an inverse relationship b/w talent and rank? The more talent you get on your side of the ball the worse your rank, right?...

They're similar, but you're confusing the Venturi Effect with the Venturi Principle.

Venturi Effect - n. - occurs when the gap is constricted; a partial vaccum forces halfbacks to accelerate through the area more quickly - see Chester Taylor.

Venturi Principle - n. - the inversely proportional relationship between player talent and defensive performance -- see Saints, Northwestern.

Well, I got what I was looking for in that game. I certainly saw what our lines can do when they put their mind to it. Better start stocking up on beer now.

Saints D Horrible missed tackles played bad just bad and the special teams sucked ravens gettin atleast to the 40 every time... not a good game for the D.... and Brooks played pretty good. Kingsbury shouldnt have came in .... A-Mac should have stayed in. The run game wasnt too good....

Pretty scary. The Ravens had 94 yards on two run plays....two! That is really bad. I hope this team can put a run defense together soon.

By the way, how did Sully do? I saw he got a sack.-

Spkb, I hope and expect that we will have a better year than 5-11. Look at it this way, we didn't get worse over the course of the offseason. We did get better. I'm really hoping for a 10-6 year at least. However, if the defense lets plays go like that in every game, we are in BIG trouble.
