Re: Offense

This may be a little bit of putting on the black and gold glasses.... but the way I see it, this year we are 6-2 in close games that were decided by 10 points or less. And we always win the blowouts. So this defense of ours can clearly help us out, and help win those close games, even if the offense isn't exactly humming. Either we are super insanely lucky, or else it's proven itself true enough so far this year, that I'm inclined to believe it. 6-2 in close games is not bad. It's certainly better than blind luck. That wasn't always the case in the past. We usually always had EITHER the high flying offense, OR the raging hard-nosed defense...the only time we sorta ever had both clicking at the same time was in, you guessed it, 2009, and this year on some of these really fantastic blowouts. Obviously I want the offense back to normal but like I said, so far we are 6-2 in close games, that's pretty good.

Re: Offense

Circle back to 2009 Saints team. Didn't they go 13-0 before losing 3 straight? I think this 2018 Saints team is even better .. specifically that def front 7. We still have Sean Payton, Brees & a great cast a dawgs. We're not playing outside the rest of the year either. The path to Atl is there ...

Dome sweet dome.

Is Ginn even practicing. If Iím not mistaken, doesnít a player on IR have to be practicing to be activated.

IIRC that rule does not apply after week 8.

We may not hear anything on TGJr until Friday.

Win Sunday and we can rest whoever we want for 3 weeks.

Re: Offense

I think we're seeing a tired Saints team. That stretch of 3 games in 12 days (think about that) took it's toll. We need to get that 1st round bye so we can rest up.

Re: Offense

Offensive Line is the issue. Guys are playing hurt. Play the backups till the playoffs and we'll be fine.
