I told SP to take the reigns off of Jameis and let him loose. Will he listen?

I mean, they could do different WR routes, slants and what not, and get Kamara more involved in the passing game.

2006-2020: "If only the Saints would commit to the run we could unlock our true potential!"
2021: "Not like that!!!"

I'd love to see an old fashioned Screen called like PT used to run.

Rather than the flare pass to Kamara who is then immediately surrounded by 3 defenders.

As much as teams are keying in on Alvin Kamara, the play-action pass should be there...

I don't understand why we don't do more play action. Maybe it's because we are missing two starters on the O-line and it takes time to develop.

You're not doing shut-down blocking, more speed bump blocking, same as a screen; so I'd think what we have would get the job done...

I am probably one of the few people that think that the Saints don't need to "open up the offense". The running game has been really productive. IF we run the ball well and the pass rush makes its presence felt, the other aspects of the game will fall into place and we'll be a threat to get to the playoffs and win.

Yes! What the heck is this play and why do we do it so often?! We throw it to Kamara in the flat with no blocking in front of him and just expect him to break tackles? Drives me crazy every time.

Not very far with an INT already...
