Observations from the Saints' win against the Colts



Brees' breaks the all time record for TDs, edging Peyton Manning. He was nearly perfect in completion percentage.

Defense played extremely well.

Refs calls were much more calm, even despite the OPI called at the end of the first half.

Kamara showing some signs of life.

Enjoy this win. Are the Saints beginning to peak at the right time of the year?

Drew hit 9 different receivers.

I'm interested to see how Jenkins can contribute. I think we do need the first round bye so some of the players can rest up. Kamara seems to be getting better. Taysom Hill definitely needs be a receiving option.

Booger McFarland is absolutely awful as the commentator for MNF...

Re: Observations from the Saints' win against the Colts

Quick Hits
  • While the Career PaTd record falling was getting all the headlines, Brees snuck in the best single game completion record, perhaps the best regular season performance in NFL history...

  • Watch Mike Thomas run vertical routes, out routes, crossing routes when McFarland tried to suggest Thomas would just run in routes was humorous and annoying at the same time...

  • Taysom Hill running the Lance Moore/Willie Snead underneath drag route tonight will be something to look forward to on 3rd and distance, red zone plays the coming weeks...

  • We scored on every drive that Murray got at least two touches and Payton needs to recognize and ingrain that into his play-calling for the rest of the season and in the Tournament...

  • Said this during the in-game conversation and I'll say it again, I'm not worried about re-signing Vonn Bell because Gardner will be an upgrade at the position...

  • Know we picked up Jenkins, but I still wanna see the Eli Apple we saw the first half of this season; Coach Glenn has got to fix this regression and not lose another like Ken Crawley...

  • We did all this tonight losing two more starting offensive linemen; we'd better get these guys back healthy for the playoffs for sure, but we'll need them versus Tennessee on the road...

  • Did Jared Cook come back too soon from the Concussion Protocol? he had some of his most impressive catches of the season, but he's showing his age with the frequent injuries now...

  • Must be the Christmas memories of sweets dancing in my thoughts, but can you imagine how good our total LBer corps is gonna be when they're all healthy? Demario was a beast in coverage...

  • Call Borden Milk and tell them they can take Tre'Quan Smith off the back of the cartons, at least for a week, even if his catches against the body were less than ideal; and that wasn't Offensive PI...

  • Other than San Fran, I like what Trey Hendrickson can bring opposite Cam and with David Onyemata, who's always been better IMO than Rankins, bringing it up the gut; Tuttle has a quiet solid game...

  • Some questioned it, but I thought Murray on the screens was terrific, showing great awareness, using his blockers smartly; not Pierre Thomas good, but effective nonetheless, Sean...

  • Indy's Defense was shredded tonight, but they seemed to have an answer for Kamara, same as San Fran had last week; blowing him up more than I'd care to see...

  • With Jared Cook out, we were down to one Tight End in Josh Hill and one Swiss Army Knife in Taysom Hill, who looks like our best option in the slot not named Mike Thomas...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Re: Observations from the Saints' win against the Colts

Taysom looked great on that drag route. TreQuan played well and had the 2nd TD catch taken away from him. The defense played great; D Davis is such an animal.

Kind of wish Brees could have gone 30 for 30. I reckon that'd feel like bowling a 300 game.

Re: Observations from the Saints' win against the Colts

They finally played a complete game. It’s what I’ve been waiting to see. My quick takes.

CGJ might be better at SS than Von Bell, and I actually like Bell.

Taysom Hill is a special athlete and even better than I gave him credit for.

Drew Brees looked like himself. Vintage.

Jared Cook is finally showing his talent.

Janoris Jenkins will take this defense to the next level. We can go man all
the way across the board with Lattimore and Jackrabbit on the outside and Apple in the slot. I can’t wait to see what we look like next week in the secondary.
