Without Lattimore, our defense is noticeably weaker...

Re: What we learned from Saints' comeback win against the Redskins

Quarterback
Drew Brees took far more of a beating than in the previous few weeks. Brees made some nice throws, but couldn’t connect some others. This wasn’t the day Brees could put the team on his back and pull the Saints to victory ... until it was. He went full-throttle Brees for consecutive touchdown drives in the fourth quarter to force overtime.
Grade: A

Running back
Mark Ingram ran as hard as he possibly could to keep the Saints in the game. Alvin Kamara produced a couple of explosive plays. And he also made the amazing happen with the juggling touchdown reception and the two-point conversion.
Grade: A plus

Wide receiver
Ted Ginn Jr. has become one of the more consistent receivers on the Saints. Michael Thomas again came up with a few tough catches. The unit came up huge down the stretch.
Grade: B

Tight end
Coby Fleener hauled in a handful of big time receptions (five catches, 90 yards), and Josh Hill caught a TD. I still like what I saw from Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui with their blocking in the ground game.
Grade: B plus

Offensive line
The front five surrendered more pressure on Brees for the first time in quite a while. I saw some missed assignments from just about everyone along the offensive front. The Redskins overwhelmed Ryan Ramczyk too often.
Grade: B-minus

Defensive line
Cam Jordan and friends couldn’t provide too much pressure on Kirk Cousins. The Saints failed to record a quarterback hit on Cousins in the first half. The front line also found issues slowing down Redskins backup tailback Samaje Perine, who rushed for more than 100 yards. The unit kept it together late in the game, though, including a Cam Jordan sack in overtime.
Grade: C

More than that. This game clearly showed why Lattimore, Klein, and Vaccaro all make the defense work. Remember that Harris started the first two games. Saw the same busted coverages as in the first two games. I love Mauti's grit. But it simply isn't Klein's talent.

Scheme can only do so much. We need the physical and mental talents of our missing starters for our defense to be effective.

Hope we see them all back soon.

Re: What we learned from Saints' comeback win against the Redskins

Some kudos

Fleener - Thats what we'd hope to see every game since we signed him.

Klein, Okafor and Lattimore are key players we need down the stretch

Ingram-looks like another #22 that played for the Cowboys a while back

Kamara-this kid is freaking special, even more special than most of us know.

Payton-It looks like he has the fire and passion that was missing the last few years.

Drew doesn't look a day over 30.

This team has chemistry and character. Its so 2009!!!

The Saints played a crappy game for 3½ quarters and the boom. This is a group with a lot of grit and fight in 'em. I have said it before but they genuinly seem to be playing for each other and caring about oneanother.

Re: What we learned from Saints' comeback win against the Redskins

Glad they shutdown Lattimore...need him later down the stretch. Klein was hugely missed today. Only gripes would be wanting to see Rankins flash more on passing downs. Harris should be bagging groceries tomorrow, if only he could locate the bags and the groceries.

But we're just a good team...hasn't been that for awhile. Great W.
