Re: Saints Throttle Eagles 48-7

The '18 Eagles are not the '17 Eagles, but they are also not the Raiders, Cards or 49ers. Considering what the Saints offense has done this year it is difficult to see how anyone will stop us. Fans were used to see Brees putting up record passing numbers. Now the team is putting up record scoring numbers with a balanced run-pass attack, playing nearly mistake-free football. Double Kamara and Thompson and Brees kills you with Smith and Kirkwood. Try to stop the passing game, Ingram/Kamara run for 200+ yards, eating clock and wearing the D.

The thing that has impressed me the most these past several games is that the D-line is starting to mirror the O-line. They are becoming equally adept at stuffing the run and pressuring the QB. The result has been 7 picks in the last four games. Giving the ball back to Brees just makes a long day even longer for the opposing D.

If we can continue to pressure passers, the DBs will return to their 2017 form, just in time for the playoffs. This D has climbed to #16 in scoring D. Pitch out the first three games and the Saints have the #3 scoring defense. Couple that with the #1 scoring offense and you have a recipe that's hard if not impossible to beat.

Garbage time observation ....

There was about 3 or 4 minutes left in the game, the camera zero's in on Doug Peterson and he's covering his mouth with his play card as if we didn't already know his plays on D . That moment was kind of funny to me.

At least he never stop coaching .

I was thinking the same thing. But get this...even with our backups in garbage time they didn't give up a score to their starting offense. That says a lot about our D's grit.
