I mean short term we can still put up points solely with our Passing game, but in the long term we'll need the running element of our Offense.
    Bingo, a strong running game, especially the kind that Bell provides with the way he hits the holes hard, has been a huge reason for our passing game being so potent.

    • Congrats on the win today guys. I had a bad feeling before today and now I see why. I don't know if you guys wanna hear this or not, but I consider the saints to be strong threats to go all the way this year. That offense is scary good, ala the 07 patriots.

        I'm with ya, bro. Playing the underdog is great.
        The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

        • McNabb doesn't play defense so how could he have really helped? Kolb was decent given the circumstances.

            Im fine with it as long as its a well kept secret ;), so dont tell anyone


            Saints 2014 draft wish list:
            - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
            - Corner or Wideout in the first
            - No reaching
            - No Kelvin Benjamin

            • Week Three: New Orleans Saints @ Buffalo Bills

              Has some feelings of a trap game for sure. Mike Bell and Lance Moore are both out, I believe. PT will probably be limited as well. It'll be up to Reggie Bush to provide something on the ground. The weather might be rainy I'm hearing. Stopping Fred Jackson, T.O. & Lee Evans is going to be tough challenge for our defense so hopefully Greg Williams' has our guys ready. We protect Brees successfully and I still think we can win this one.

              GEAUX SAINTS!

              • This is going to be a significant test for our defense. We are getting the no-huddle thrown at us along with receivers that can really stretch the field, which is something we haven't had the past couple of weeks. (Yes, Megatron and DeSean Jackson can stretch the field but T.O. and Lee Evans both are vertical threats)

                • I think the play of Roman Harper is going to be crucial in this game.

                  • This game is going to be a battle, Special teams has been an Achilles heel of this team and that weakness continues to show with Buffalo's fake FG attempt resulting in a TD against us.

                    O-line and Bushrod in general are really struggling with protection so far.. Brees has been getting hit, and it showed on that fumble... Going to have to protect it up.

                      Asshole.

                      • That power I is still working wonders. We are getting 4-5 yards per carry with our backs in the first half, and then busting it wide open in the 4th quarter.

                        We are losing LT's fast, but I love this new attitude to run from the classic running formation, don't get fancy, just power it!

                        • Hostile enviroment, windy rough passing conditions, Drew Brees facing a lot of pressure and held to under 200 yards passing, and 0 touchdowns.

                          This is definitely the type of game the Saints lose in the past, but Payton did a great job of making adjustments... letting the Defense dictate the pace of the game, playing the field position battle... and sticking with the running game. Pierre Thomas looked very good in the 2nd half..if he keeps running that way we might be able to hold out Mike Bell as long as possible to get healthy again.

                          If not for the Fake FG attempt, we have a shut out here. Huge game vs. the Jets next week who are also undefeated... maybe the game of the Week around the league.

                          • I loved the play of the Defense and Special Teams. Malcolm Jenkins is really proving to be a great pick from his ST play alone. This win goes to show that we can still beat you even if Drew Brees doesn't throw 5 TD's. nor does he have to; our defense has arrived.

                            • I loved how the D showed they are legit although it prolly wasnt the easiest weather to play in but still. Bit worried about the OLine performance tbh. Loved how they won this game though, confidence booster

                              • Just some day after thoughts:

                                I'd like to see Shockey, and our other TE Thomas.. involved in the passing game a little more, however from a play calling standpoint it's been hard to send them vertical often because they've been needed to block due to our struggles at Left Tackle... but boy if we ever can get it protected well enough to send our Tight Ends out, there is much to be had over the middle...

                                Also our Screen game has really been off.. every time we try running a screen the timing is off and either is incomplete, and gets blown up for a loss. I'm not sure if it's something the Offense need to work out, or if Defenses have just diagnosed it.

                                Bushrod is struggling in pass protection. I hope the Ankle injury doesn't hinder his footwork.. because he's already needed enough help from the Backs, and Tight Ends in Pass Protection. It would be great to have Jammal Brown back for these next 2 games.. but I guess we won't see him until after the Giants game at the earliest.

                                I really think we need Lance Moore back.. I hope he can go for the Jets game. Drew trusts him and looks for him often on key 3rd downs, and on hot reads when facing pressure. I thought Meachem would get his opportunity with Lance out, but he hasn't been noticed much.
