Observations from the Saints' Win vs Panthers

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The Saints have a defense that is good enough to win the Super Bowl, but their offense looks like a 1970s expansion team. Pretty much sums up the entire season and what I seen yesterday....

Re: Observations from the Saints' Win vs Panthers

Yesterday's game reinforced everything we already knew.

- Our QB situation has been bad since Winston went down. The only way to be successful there is mix in designed runs to keep a defense thinking.
- The O line is struggling when most of them are backups
- Kamara is a superstar
- This defense is stellar. Kwon and Demario are great together. Cam can still turn it on, and Davenport is a force when healthy. All the other guys on the D line do their job and bring it when necessary.

I know we are missing damn near the entire starting O line, however, I like the way Marquez Callaway continues to make plays downfield.

Still believe he's a solid #3, but he has a high ceiling.

Hope that we get a healthy MT, add a stud FA WR & then draft one in the subsequent draft & we're back in business offensively.

Callaway and Harris. Send the rest on to exciting new challenges.

While I don't expect a 180, I would imagine Taysom gets more time to survey the field and maybe use his legs.

This!

People talking about how the offense needs retooled. What the offense needs are the players already on the roster to be in the active lineup and it's back to being a very competitive squad. Can the offensive roster be improved? Of course. But it is much, much better than what is being marched out on the field through much of this season.

What you saw yesterday isn't our offense. It is what we have out there while major pieces were missing. Big difference.

Exactly. We are very close to having an elite offense when all the existing pieces are in place. With the few additions you mentioned we can be right back there. And that includes Winston.

Re: Observations from the Saints' Win vs Panthers

Panties fans did not make the trip. The lowest visiting crowd by far all season.

The same can be said for the home crowd. It was by far the greatest number of empty seats I've seen in the dome this season.

That said, it was the loudest crowd of the season whenever it mattered. The ones that were missing were apparently those that sit on their hands anyway. Not as loud as past years, but honestly the loudest this year.

The defense is for real. On any given day we can beat anyone with this defense and a bit of luck.

Callaway can be a weapon, but those two blatant drops were out of character for him this season.

Taysom gives us a better chance of winning games than any Saints QB not named Jameis and it isn't even close. It looks like his teammates agree.

Ceedy Duce has become a huge crowd favorite. The reaction to his introduction was only equaled by Demario and Cam.

The 550 mile round trip is much more enjoyable with a win. Go figure.

For those who put so much value on "Draft Choices"
