Observations from the Saints win vs Titans

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I never expected this game to be a cake walk. Titans are legit on the Dline and on special teams. Saints had struggles on O (specifically oline/ Penning) but Carr made key, critical throws when it mattered most. NFL refs ...

I never expected this game to be a cake walk.

Saints had struggles on O (specifically oline/ Penning) but Carr made key,
critical throws when it mattered most.

NFL refs are what they are but you still have to clean up those penalties.

We were the closers today. A win is a win.

Re: Observations from the Saints win vs Titans

Our defense looked a lot better than our offense. I wonder if John Gruden would be interested a Senior Assistant - Assistant Head Coach role the rest of the season.

Goodell doesn't want Gruden back in the NFL so if he is going to let the refs screw us and we can't do anything about it, we should do something he can't do anything about. What's the worst he could do? Have the refs screw us? Oh wait... thats already happening.

That's basically what Billicheat did with effing with RG. I wouldn't hate the idea.

Re: Observations from the Saints win vs Titans

Next week will be a good comparison for what or Oline is and what it’s not. The Titians have a top rated defensive line and it showed. Penning was the obvious weak link but there was little movement across the Oline in the run game till the last big run.

So next weeks matchup on Monday night might give another data point in season long evaluation rather than a rush to judgement.

Re: Observations from the Saints win vs Titans

Just listened to some of the post game and coach thinks that
Trevor Penning is “fine”.

You sure about that coach? Arden Key came in rather easily today.

Better get his technique and hand placement fixed quickly.

Otherwise you’re going to get Carr seriously injured.

Game 1 for Carr 23/33 305 yds 69.6 % completion … Yep DC took the team thru the door that the defense kept open for them for the win.

It's not how a player looks on the field, its where we drafted them. If we drafted them high they are great and will start throughout their contract because our front office never makes mistakes. If Penning continues to struggle we will declare him injured, put him on IR with zero notice, and blame the lost season on injuries while declaring 'it's like we have an extra 1st round pick in 2024' because he will be coming back.

Re: Observations from the Saints win vs Titans

Grupe 3 for 3 and extra point with 3 kickoffs thru the end zone no return.

Solid start to his career.

Will Lutz missed his first extra point with Denver.

I’ve observed that some people really get off on putting a negative spin on a Saints victory.

Re: Observations from the Saints win vs Titans

Positives:
We created some Ints and won the TO battle

Grupe

Run D looks good and contained Henry for the most part

WRs looked good. We had contributions from our top 3 guys.

Carr kept his cool after the really bad Int

Negatives

Run blocking

We can’t figure out what the hell to do with Taysom Hill

Our kick and punt return teams either hold or fumble way too much.

Refs screw us as always.
