What we learned from the Saints win against the Jets

Defense is good enough to help us carry to a win even if the offense is not sharp.

3 turnovers need to be cleaned up fast, especially Coleman's.

The Jets aren't as bad as their record says it is.

We are in the driver's seat for the division.

Although not a thing of beauty, we'll take this win.

Jets were a good team, most of their losses were by less than a TD.

It went about as I expected.

Some good, some bad, but a win nonetheless.

Re: What we learned from the Saints win against the Jets

The Saints didn't receive much help from the rest of the NFC
The Saints needed the Panthers, Vikings or Eagles to lose as they vie for a high playoff seed in the NFC. All of their main rivals won. The Saints started the day at the No. 4 seed in the NFC and ended it in the same spot. Philadelphia and Minnesota look like locks for the Nos. 1 and 2 playoff seeds with two games to play.

Re: What we learned from the Saints win against the Jets

I've learned over 40 years that if you need or want a team to lose in the final weeks, it never happens.


I fully expect the Falcons to win tomorrow night. Such is life as a Saints fan.

I'm 100% sure we'll need to beat the Bucs in week 17 just to make the playoffs.

Ingram gets a thousand yards rushing.

Mike Thomas gets a thousand yard receiving.

Re: What we learned from the Saints win against the Jets

Some posters were expecting the Jets to perform like the Browns. This is the NFL. Nothing is easy.

Side note - Cam Jordan is an elite player who continues to make plays every week.

Just wait to you see what the chargers do to that team next week. We just can't destroy below .500 teams. Jets are a good team? Don't make me laugh.

Re: What we learned from the Saints win against the Jets

Can’t convert on 3rd down
Lattimore will be all pro for years. Great pick. It’s fun to have a CB who’s name you hear a lot because he’s doing good things rather than bad.

Special teams SUCK.
Way to many penalties.

We still haven’t played our best football. Atlanta is going to get CRUSHED.

Jets WERE a good team that just didn’t. Have the ball bounce their way. They lost their top defensive lineman and QB We just almost lost to a very bad team. We would have lost that game if it weren’t for injuries.

Apparently him and Hill spend too much time together.
Idk why all our receivers decided to take a step back this year. Thomas is the only sure thing we got.
Pass to Thomas
Pass to Kamara
Pass to Ingram

Thatís all we got.

Re: What we learned from the Saints win against the Jets

Jets played the run and screen game.

They dared Drew and company to beat them through the air.

It took almost 2 full quarters till the saints stopped forcing their game plan

That has to change.
