Strengths:

- 4-5 man pass rush
- run defense
- D Davis
- Kamara big-play ability
- Lutz FG kicking
- Sanders now up to speed and potentially great CGM/Sanders receiving duo

Weaknesses:

- CGM needing a life coach
- no crowd noise, very little HFA because of 2020

We've gotta improve our D. With our current defense, the way we are playing, it's hard to watch. And I KNOW we've got the horses to get it done.

I'm glad to hear you say that (seriously), wish I could say the same.

I heard Mike Detiller mention a few times that Dennis Allen's scheme is too damn complex. Why not simplify it and put players in position to make plays? PRob, Jenkins, Marcus are no rookies but often look perplexed out there. I refuse to believe that we have 11 scrubs out there on defense.

Collectively, we must play better on defense if we want to hang out with the big boys in late January.

Weíve seen a lot worse as fans. They really only gave up 20 points last night. Brees gave the Chargers the other 7.

Re: Saints beat the Chargers in a MNF thriller, regain 1st in NFC South

I think at the end of the season we will be fine....injuries, effed up training camp or lack of, or no preseason. recipe for a slow start. I think each team is a little different, some will start hot, some will take time to cultivate. Our D line looked solid last night, linebackers were just okay, secondary is the weakest link, but we are banged up, I expect us to be fine. Although Jenkins needs to get his s**t together quickly. As far as the Offense, should be fine when we have all the parts back. Although I would like to see our future HOF QB on the field with 3 minutes to go, and game on the line. more Murray, more Cook less Hill. And the Calloway kid peaked my interest...

D line and run D does look stout, and it was good to see Davenport getting in the game last night.
