  1. Saints Defense

    So, I'll admit that I still feel very green to analyzing football, just getting into it a few years ago. I come from a hockey background, but I kinda feel that it comes with some benefits to seeing what's wrong with the defense. To me, it's simply intensity. Last year this team got away with a few calls, but with any contact sport the refs can't call everything and it's ok to push your weight around a bit. It gets the other teams offense off their game a bit. Hockey back in the day, you had to scrap for every inch, you really had to hook, hit and intimidate the other team. This defense felt like it was the pushing its weight around last year. Now, its feeling like they're trying to keep up with the other teams offense. Hell in 2009, the defensive coordinator would show them movies on how a lion would stalk it's prey. If they can get the killer instinct back, they'll be where they were
  2. Week 1: GDT Saints vs Buccaneers

    Bourbon works well for a loss too. Just sayin
  3. Jets trade QB Bridgewater to Saints

    Does anyone know what the stats are for a 3 round pick to play 48+ games? If it's low, great risk-reward situation. Jets were hedging the bets, which worked for them as well.
  4. Jets trade QB Bridgewater to Saints

    Really pumped about Bridgewater. Was hoping Taysom Hill would be the new QB at one point. That's probably wishful thinking though as Bridgewater would be an exceptional upgrade.
  5. Edge Rushers vs. Interior Rushers

    Comparing Donald and Bosa to the average edge or interior rusher makes it difficult. If either guy goes to FA, you try to sign them. In a draft you go based on BPA and team needs. If they took a larger sample of edge rushers and interior rushers and used the average than it may support this better, as it would prove their theory against more divisions and QBs, etc.
  6. Matt Ryan

    Really new to football and stats. Does it just have to graze the fingers to be a drop? What's the criteria?
  7. Matt Ryan

    That's a good points as well.
  8. Matt Ryan

    I'm going to say no. Each of their divisional rivals upgraded their defense: New Orleans - traded up to get a DE and their defense improved leaps and bounds last year. They also signed Robinson, Davis and Coleman. Tampa Bay - Picked Vea and 2 CBs, plus had some decent defensive FA signings. Carolina: Signed Poe and also got a CB in the 2nd. As for Atlantas offense: they signed a guard and added Ridley. Same offensive coordinator
  9. Adrian Peterson?

    Like the guy but would rather see what we have in the stables
  10. This sucks, but this just means his legs will be fresh for the Vikings. We won't need him in week 1-4 *knocking on wood*
  11. 2018 Schedule announced

    Would rather have a back heavy season, it will get us prepared for the playoffs. Gives us a few games against lighter competition and slowly escalates to Vikings and Eagles, finish off with Panthers and Steelers. It'll be good!
  12. Saints cut Coby Fleener

    Why did they wait so long? Just to see him at practice and make sure it's all good?
  13. Who do you not want your division rivals to get?

    As a Saints fan... was wanting them to double up and get a CB and defend the sky. Wanted them to get either Oliver or Jackson. I was pretty bummed to see Isaiah Oliver go to Atlanta. It sucked even more that they got him in the 2nd. I also have a soft spot for the Vikings. So it sucked that Joshua Jackson went to Green Bay.
  14. My thoughts on Saints 2018 draft class...

    This is a really good point! Everyone is talking about trying to replace Brees. You can't replace Drew Brees. The odds of falling into a Favre to Rodgers situation is slim to none. So be prepared for life without Drew.
  15. If this is the case, I hope they promote Loomis to President of the Saints Organization and promote Ireland into his role. We can't let the guy go.
