Defense

When nobody was looking our defense got very very legit. Just gotta give props where props are due. Davis is a stud. Healthy Anzalone is on fire and looking like a great pick. Apple is even starting to come around.
This defense could wind up being our strength in the post season.
Good job over the last 4 games.

Re: Defense

Held another NFL team to under 10 points.

This is a championship caliber defense. Offense needs to catch up.

Re: Defense

A bit of a throwback to the old Dome Patrol days right? A rock solid defense doing just enough to overcome schizophrenic offensive output.

Re: Defense

The last time the Saints won scoring only 12 point was 1989. The defense is a Top 10 defense. Combine that with Brees and the home field and we are on our way to another Superbowl Victory.

Re: Defense

One more player worth mentioning ....

Vonn Bell

1 sack
7 tackles
1 tackle for a loss
1 pass defended
1 forced fumble (huge play)

He's balling this year.

It's not a fluke. Been going on for over a month. It's real. Probably the second best D we have eve fielded this late in the season.

Re: Defense

I’m agreeing but also tempering. Cam is hurt and did not try to run on us anywhere near like he used to, when he did... we felt it.

It was only a matter of time until Fig Newton's body started to break down. I don't see him ever returning to his earlier glory. I expect the same to happen to McCaffery the way he's being over-used.

Re: Defense

One last kudo on D ...

Lattimore. Cam didn't even throw in his zip code or at least I didn't notice.

The only points given up was a fluke "trick" play on D.
