Its normal for us to look sluggish, and a bit lost in preseason... going back to '06, Payton's first year.... it shifts to a new gear game 1.

WhoDat, Brothers!

Re: Saints vs Vikings Game Day Thread

On the plus side...

Erik McCoy- Looks like a seasoned vet already. Excellent draft pick.

Cyril Grayson- Ted Ginn’s replacement? Very impressive showing tonight.

Deonte Harris- I’m not sure there’s room for just a return specialist but man he’s good.

Vince Biegel- Saw him playing off-ball LB and putting his hand in the dirt at DE. Plays with a certain intensity.

AJ Derby- Ran decent routes when lined up at TE and blocked well lined up as an H-Back.

I’m sure there were a few more standouts that I’m forgetting.

"When you get into one of these groups, there's only a couple of ways you can get out. One, is death; the other, is mental institutions."

Eli Apple Ken Crawley have to be some of the best corners to be in position to make a play on the ball and don't I mean seriously it's crazy it's like we always have at least one corner who can ACTIVATE COVER but can't make a play on the ball

Based solely on this first drive we are not week one ready at least on defense
