Zodiac Posted September 10, 2010 Share Posted September 10, 2010 From this game besides the blatant ref favortism, the Saints Run D was god awful, and good luck getting it any better you have Frank Gore than Michael Turner. Also the TE was left open most of the game, once again Kellen Winslow than Tony Gonzalez. The Seam was open pretty much all day Harry D anybody??? The Saints D was very flawed and were not thier normal ball hawking selves.Thier O wasn't any better. Besides teh Opening Drives of each half thier O was shutdown, mainly by a depleted Vikings secondary, They Had Asher Allen and Abdullah who aren't ussually starting start, and they got burned. Brees will have to face a shut down type corner in Dunta Robinson and also a very athletic Brent Grimes who had 6 Picks in 8 games last season. The Falcons also have 2 Good Run stopping DTs Babieneaux and Jerry can both stuff the run, along with Curtis Lofton a soon to be pro-bowler MLB to come up and stop the run. The Falcons also have speed. They get to the ball quickly and swarm the carrier so don't expect running to be that effective. Also if Biermann is anything like he's showing he's a force and will demand attnetion and with Abraham who always demands a double team (No he didnt have a lot of sacks but didnt he like lead the leauge in hurries?) on the other side, Along with Babienauex up the middle its hard to see how we won't beat the Saints even in thier own palace after this first game.
