And is the only member of the 30-30 club....

30+ TDS
And
30 Ints

OH... and he now holds the record for throwing the most pick 6s in a season.

PLEASE TB - keep Winston!

I thought the new kid did pretty well for his first game. Loved the play on Kamara's TD when he wiped out 2 LBs at once.

He looked good in his own understated way. Saw Brees in an interview a couple of weeks back saying he really trusts Smith and I think it shows.

Which would give us som interesting alternatives going forward. He clearly isn't afraid to hit people.

Agreed, he has the arm for it too.

Re: Observations from the Saints' win vs Panthers

Real conundrum on the safety front.

PJ can tackle but doesnt have good ball skills
Marcus has really good hands but refuses to form tackle. I was hoping he'd learnt from 2017 minny, let's hope he can beat some of his demons in the coming week.

Marcus needs to spend a week with a rugby team going through tackling drills and then playing tackle rugby to get a feel for positional tackling. In other words each tackle is different because of angles and body positioning and he'd have to follow the rugby laws about wrapping up the tackled player. These stupid diving tackles with a shoulder is bull ****. You can't tackle what you can't see!

Coach Payton, may I have a word with you regarding new staff additions...

Marcus is a wuss when it comes to tackling. You'd think he would've learned from the MN game 2 years ago. Nope.

Completely agree, I'm not a huge fan of Rugby to be honest, but their tackling technique is impeccable and what better way to learn than to go through tackling drills that they do.

Re: Observations from the Saints' win vs Panthers

My biggest take from yesterday, CGM took too many big hits. He’s not gonna last very long with the shots he’s been taking. He was getting hit hard and slammed to the turf on incomplete passes. Not good.
