They were awesome.
Only problem was not quite using the running game enough in spots IMO, but that is an old tale. The spot in 3Q where they went empty backfield for a series should have been where we did the opposite and stuck with the run.I think the rumors of our offense's demise have been a little premature. I thought the o-line held up well in pass protection. We were averaging close to 4-yards/carry at one point, so I would say that even production in the run game was fairly satisfactory.
O-line played as expected IMO. Payton/Brees has had our offense at the top of the league every season.
Yeah, but there's a difference between top in yards (like last year) and being a machine like we saw yesterday.
That was the best, most efficient we've looked on offense since 2011 save a game here or there.
Noway ! We should have drafted 2 guards, we are doomed ! How did Brees decide to sign an extension bla-bla-bla...........
As expected the O-line (good job!) was more than solid and the D-Line was as weak as feared...
