  • Congrats on the win fellas. Even when your passing game ain't running on 8 cylinders, your running game stepped up and helped preserve the win. One thing that really impressed me was your defense. The D is so much improved from previous seasons. You guys are dangerous this year. Good game guys.

    • Thanks for the credit, Jets will be a really tough team the rest of the way.. that Defense is one of the best and will keep them in many games.

      As for the Saints whew second straight tough, ugly Win.. but I will take it a thousand timer over. The Defensive effort carried us, which is a very pleasant surprise. In years past when the Offense; Passing game in particular struggled we had almost no chance at winning. This years team however has a different type of resiliency.

      4-0 heading into the Bye week looks very promising, but we have a lot of improvements to work on. Hopefully the Offense can get things figured out, to be fair they were playing a top notch Defense. Also hopefully we can get some key guys like Clancy, Malcom Jenkins, and Mike Bell healthy.

      • Running game comes through big in the second half.

        First half:
        Bush, 4 carries, 30 yards
        Thomas, 4 carries, 5 yards

        They were clogging the line up, Reggie made nothing from a few broken plays to get any yards.

        Second half:
        Bush: 2 carries, 7 yards
        Thomas:15 carries, 82 yards

        Want big stats, run when the D is broken down in the second half. Made a post about it, but everyone dismissed me.

        • Week Six: New York Giants @ New Orleans Saints

          ... yeah, no need to pump you guys up for this one. Thoughts?
          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.''

          • These games just keep getting bigger. I know how early in the season this is, but I think this game is a huge test for both teams.

            I really hope I'm wrong in my assessment, but the more I look at this game the more I think this might be the first time this season the Saints slip up. Before this game I viewed the Giants as the best team in the NFC.. and even though they lack a true high quality opponent on their schedule thus far, my opinion hasn't changed. They are a well coached, disciplined team, that even on the road just take care of business. We will need our best effort Offensively, Defensively, Special Teams wise, and also our Coaches need to be well prepared in this one.

            The biggest reason why I give the Giants the edge.. (even despite our Homefield advantage) is that they have an amazing Defensive Front Four.. and can generate great pressure with just 4 rushers... and those kind of teams have given our Offense fits the past few seasons. Combine that with the fact that we've had issues at Left Tackle so far this season makes me really uneasy.. it hasn't shown to be an issue yet.. but this week we're going up against Osi Umenyiora. Whether it's Bushrod or Strief they will have their hands full... and I'm not even all that confident in the Justin Tuck / Stinchcomb match-up... I think Tuck might get the best of him as well on some plays.

            The most important aspect for the Saints this game is staying ahead of the chains, and not falling behind early. We have to stay out of 3rd & longs... therefore false starts, penalties, negative plays will be even more magnified. Can't let that disruptive Giants line tee off vs. the pass. I think if we're to win this we're going to need a huge effort from Pierre Thomas, and Mike Bell.

            • I think quick passing and the screen game is going to be vital in this game - Brees gets the ball off quickly but he's going to have to be even quicker this weekend with it. I'm just hoping we can survive with a win.

              • I have a feeling their running game is going to give us fits.

                  I think they definitely have the potential to control the clock with their running game. I mentioned in a Giants thread somewhere that the back that concerns me the most is Ahmad Bradshaw... he's a very shifty, and compact back who is very difficult to tackle. In our games so far most teams never truly tried to establish a running game against us because we've been able to get out to an early lead in all 4 of our games. Hopefully that can continue but it will be interesting to see how this team responds if they trail at some point during this game.

                  I agree that the quick passing game will be a key factor in this game. I think we can somewhat neutralize the Giants rush with quick passes to the outside, I think we might try to set up a swing screen, or another quick developing play to the outside to Bush at some point. I'm hoping that if Mike Bell/Pierre Thomas are both available which I think they will.. we'll be able to run the ball effectively which will help keep us out of 3rd & longs.

                  Defensively we'll have our work cut out for us though, outside of New England, and Atlanta this is one of our biggest Defensive challenges of the season.

                    That's been the fan's game plan for 3 years now.

                    • Not I, I enjoy the swing pass, but I think moving Bush into the slot and sending him downfield enough times will make them take a LB off the field and they will have to match our "running" packages with a nickel or dime, and that's an advantage to your running game.

                      • Oops I meant just to get the "quick developing play" portion. Yeah, we all think Bush is more of a wing-back type.

                        • I'm actually really worried about this game as a Giants fan. For all the press and notoriety Drew Brees and the passing game get (I love Brees btw, my favorite QB in the NFL) I think it's your ground game that scares me the most.

                          We've had a ton of trouble stopping the run and you guys have a really good attack with Bell and Thomas. I doubt we'll be getting Canty back this week, or even next, which makes it even more worrisome you'll be able to cut us up on the ground.

                          I think this will be a really fun and interesting match up any way you look at it though. There are a lot of developing storylines and strengths and weaknesses both of these teams can try and play on.

                          Should be good!

                            if the ground game gets going for the saints i would expect a saints win. it would give brees the time he needs and with the way our d is forcing turnovers they wouldnt even need that many normal stops. Im curious how our D would do if they have to win it again for the team (although i dont really wanna figure it out, i just wanna win and win big)


                            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

                              I don't worry about our pass D, even if we don't dial up the pressure, because I like our pass rushers on your Tackles and I like our match ups with all of your receiving weapons except Bush and Shockey, one of which we should be able to neutralize giving the other one an opportunity to hurt us. Ultimately I think we'll contain you guys, which is the best we can hope for with our current injury list.

                              Offensively we will eat the clock and sustain some drives, I see Ahmad having a big game, and I think we'll give eli enough time against your pass rush to keep our drives going. This should be a great game and I look forward to it and ultimately I see it coming down to the fourth quarter and while I know Payton has been better this year than in the past, but I do half expect a play-calling **** up from him in the fourth to give us a chance to gain some ground, which is why I'm being a homer and picking the giants.

                              *watches Darren Sharper pick Eli off 3 times including 2 pick-6's as Corey Webster gets injured for three to 6 weeks and punches self in the balls*

                                Well I think we're going to have to rely on quick developing plays in this one.. simply because Osi, Justin Tuck, and Kiwanuka are in my mind the best trio of pass rushing ends in the league and if our Tackles especially Bushrod/Strief are isolated with any of them for too long it will be trouble for our passing game.

                                I feel if we are going to win this game we're going to have to rely on Running the ball strongly with our multitude of backs, and mixing it up with quick passes... for some reason I fear that Payton is going to want to come out guns blazing and try to set up some deep shots early... and one of the Giants rushers disrupts the timing and forces an early mistake... Payton has been great with being balanced, and using the running game this season however so I hope that continues.
