Observations from games impacting Saints

After watching the Dallas/Tampa game, seems to meÖ.

Payton will likely by coaching Dallas after this year based on their performance.

Fournette could run over the Saints if improvements arenít made.

Julio looks pretty darn good, though is likely to wear down over the course of a season.


I predict Carolina beats us once this year. Mayfield isnít great, but we struggle with them (see last year). Hope Iím wrong.

Itís unfortunate that we have to play the Eagles out of the NFCE this year and Tampon got the Cowboys. Philly looks much better.

Thoughts ?

You think you know, but you donít know...and you never will! Coach Jim Mora

As runners:

Cordarrelle Patterson > Fournette
Mariota >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Brady

The Falcons' success running the ball was in large part on the legs of Mariota. Brady obviously is not the threat that the Falcons provided from the QB position. The Saints should be in a far better position stopping the run against the Bucs, especially based upon the rash of injuries to the Tampa offensive line.

Except Patterson had 120 yards rushing and averaged 5.5 yards per carry.

Absolutely! How much of that was because our defense had to keep an eye on Mariota? That's what I was talking about.

Are you bored or something? "Let's see, what can I do? Oh! I'll see if I can start arguments with Guido all over the forum. Yeah! That's the ticket!"

Have you considered taking up knitting, Boston?

Small observation on the defensive side ...

The Saints defenders made numerous efforts to PUNCH OUT the ball from the runner. Maye (on Mariota) and so did Pete Werner (on #17).

Win the turnover battle & you'll always have a chance late.

Coach Kris Richard fingerprints all over this technique.
