Amusing takes across the board today. Its the OC. Its the QB. Notice that no one questions Brees or SP when the Falcons sacked Brees 8 times last year on their way to a 26-9 victory. If you lose the LOS, it doesn't matter how brilliant you are as a coordinator or who your QB is. 

That was atrocious playcalling.  Come on, now.  You can’t watch that game and think Dirk was anything but awful.

If the OL is losing the LOS, adjust the gameplan.  It’s that simple.  But Dirk never changes.  Doesn’t believe in analytics.  He believes in himself.  “Trusts his eyes” cause he “watches tape.”

He can watch 47 hours of tape but if he takes the same playcalling to every single game, why bother watching tape in the first place?

On whether he felt there was enough creativity offensively: ”It’s hard to diminish what they are doing when you talk about the creativity and what they have been able to do the last couple of weeks. We have to go out and we have to execute better. We talked about this game being about the good, the bad, and the ugly, and we had more bad than good today. We definitely let those guys win the ugly battle. They came out and they were able to intimidate and do some different things. We were able to play physical and do some physical things, but they definitely got us when you talk about the good and the bad.”

On whether the offensive line was over-powered or just out-of-sync: ”It was a combination of those guys covering us really well, not being able to hold up for as long as some of those pass plays may have taken. We’ll get a chance to go back and see what the analytics say on how long the pass goes in the progression and who got covered, who did what as far as progressions, but we don’t want to just blow blame on the O-line all the way. A lot of those were a combination of coverage and rush.”

On the game plan to face Saints QB Taysom Hill: ”You know what he is and you know what he can do really well so you want to limit the ability for him to be able to do those things really well, which he got going really well in the second half. We were able to cause that one fumble on him when he broke out on us on a big time run, and those things limit you on as far as what you want to do. You know he has the ability to fake that and come out with a play action pass and you have to make a play on some of these play action passes whether it be a sack-fumble or whether it be making a play on the ball down the field and we were not able to do that in the second half to absolutely flip the momentum once they got it.”

On QB Matt Ryan being out of sync: “You have to give the Saints credit. They did a great job on defense, their defensive backs did a nice job to limit us and what we were able to do. Those guys came out and had a great game plan for us. They did a nice job of keeping Matt (Ryan) under control. They did a nice job of keeping our receivers under control. You have to give those guys credit for what they were able to do.”

On the importance of staying motivated knowing they will see the Saints again: ”It’s a division opponent and those things always sting but you have to get back knowing that you are going to play these guys a couple times. We know them, they know us, it’s always going to be about the stuff we talked about before, more good, less bad and we have to go out there and we have to absolutely win the ugly game. We did not win that today and they won it. It was a good job by those guys.”

On whether he was surprised by the performance coming out of a bye week: ”The guys really had a great week of preparation. I thought it was one of our best. That’s doesn’t always dictate the terms of how it’s going to look when you go out there and play the game obviously as it happened today. We came out ready to play, guys came off the bus ready to play. We had a nice feel for it in the first half. Going into halftime and having a chance to take a lead going into half but those guys getting a big time sack and then knocking down the Hail Mary coming out with the one point lead. We really felt like we could take control of the game in the second half and we were never able to capture that. They went right down and scored on us. They got the ball back. We had a bunch of three and out, we were limited on third down which we have to get better at. All of things happened in that game and we could never shift momentum back to where we could take control of the game and win it.”

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

And here is more for you

 

“ I have a lot of confidence in Dirk. I know exactly who he is. I’ve worked with him for eight games. I played against him for a bunch more than that going way back to Jacksonville. So, my respect for Dirk and who he can be and what he’s going to be in these upcoming weeks is really high.”

Given that Morris fired special-teams coordinator Ben Kotwica, he was asked why he decided to keep Koetter on for the rest of the season. Despite the offense’s inconsistency at times, Morris said he still has great confidence in his offensive coordinator.

You’re talking about one of the top, premier coaches in the National Football League over the last however many years that he’s been doing it,” Morris said. “He’s been a coordinator for a long time at a high level. A guy that I respect a lot, learned a lot from over the past year and a half, and I look forward to working with him these 11 games and trying to be our very best self.”

That and he doesn't have anyone to replace him with.

Oh well, neither will be here after the season.

I haven’t posted here in years but here goes....

The Oline is beyond putrid and a new QB won’t fix that. A mobile QB might get you 50 yards more rushing and 3-4 rollouts but this line will still get him killed. Todd Gurley isn’t done but he needs holes and the line doesn’t open them. They don’t push anyone around and fold like a cheap tent when they get hit. Think about the Cincy QB and that will certainly happen here if the line isn’t fixed. The next GM needs to figure that out before drafting a new QB.

Yeah... Morris can pack his bags too.

You have to keep in mind that the op criticizes everything.....and I mean EVERYTHING DK does.

Week one he ranted  about getting yard but no points.

Week 2 we score 39 and he trashed the offense because we got points off the short field .

If everything is not picture perfect then he and others take a **** on it.

Valid criticism is one thing but more often then not the complaining is  just arm chair quarterbacking.

Another annoying, embarrassing piece of poop performance against our arch enemy rival.

The entire organization needs to be fired including that fkg idiot McKay.  AB needs to wise up. Now these clowns are rumored to be considering the man who hired that idiot Obrien to ruin Houston’s dreams? 

I hope AB won’t let captain Tampa set this franchise back another 10 years. Time to get out of this old fashioned cesspool & start thinking cutting edge but not sure if AB is coherent enough.

If y’all didn’t get really angry watching those scum bags in Nawlins whip our axxes  today then you just don’t have a pulse :bang:

I really can’t tolerate any more of this mediocrity & disappointment.  I’m growing to dislike our crap show performances as much or more as I despise the Saints!  That’s pretty sad.
