2. Patrick Robinson had a really nice day. Made som great tackles in the run defence and the last pas breakup was a thing of beauty.

3. The fact that Demario Davis was not elected to the Pro bowl just shows how much of a sham that thing is. He might very well be the best LB in the league right now.

4. O-line started off really shaky but managed to shore it up. I can't wait to have our guards back. Ram gave up a really bad sack, its the first play like that I've seen from him this year.

5. We have a ton of talent (no pun intended) on the interior D-line. Onyemata, Stallowrth, Tuttle, I like them all.

6. D-line as a whole showed up much better this week compared to the last. Brought good pressure all the way.

7. I hope we can keep Harris around for a long time. You know you have a weapon when the other team starts squib-kicking the kick offs.

8. I loved the punt fake. Good call but a bad drop.

9. We got to see the real Kamara today. The burst was back and so was his decisiveness. The play that impressed me the most was the block on Cook's TD and that seemed to really spark him.

10. Cook is really starting to show up for us. He is a tremendous athlete.
Kamara started this game looking like he still didn't care to show up, when he went out of bounds for no reason. Drew was visibly upset with him, and I would bet had something to say to him on the sidelines. Because immediately after that series, he suddenly started breaking tackles, making spin moves, and accelerating through holes, instead of juking in place.

All things we have not seen since about week 3. Someone lit a fire under him. If it wasn't Drew, somebody sure as heck did.

Re: Observations from the Saints' win against the Titans

I'll continue to beat a dead horse here but this team is built to win anywhere.

Saints were behind 14-0, had key injuries during the game, 10 penalties & Brees had 3 sacks. Yet somehow we defeated a desperate team in their building. That's difficult to do.

This is a special team. We're not done yet ...

Kamara has gotten gun shy. He came into the league young with something to prove not caring if he got hurt. A few years older and like most young men he starts to get a sense of mortality. He gets hurt and realizes he’s not made of steel and now he’s being over cautious. I think you will see old Kamara after today.

Keep Murray off the field unless it's last resort or garbage time. Good player but he's not the thing to get us to the thing at this point.

Re: Observations from the Saints' win against the Titans

Dline doesn't look the same without Davenport and Sheldon. 3 of those sacks came off of blitzes. Trey Hendrickson needs to share more snaps with Granderson. The run game was killing us, luckily the big guy didn't play. The Big plays have to be stopped looking like the Saints defense of old out there. Marcus Williams I'm not as concerned as some of you He's played better more times than not this season to each his own on how good he is. Offense no complaints(Lies). The Oline has to play better Andrus Peat welcome back big guy. The defense as a whole has taken some steps backwards hopefully everyone can heal and we can get a Bye going into the playoffs.

Carl Granderson ...

Made a few plays today. That tackle on a very elusive Dion Lewis stood out. Keep on eye on him in the rotation as we head towards the playoffs.
