It appears there are some Saints fans here who have no respect for the Bucs defense, especially for our secondary. It's your opinion, this is your home and you are entitled to it, but let me leave you with a little "food for thought".
1. We are number #1 in the league against the run for two years running. This year we accomplished that for 11 games without our #1 run stuffer in Vita Vea.
2. Regardless of how many of you think you'll be seeing a lot man to man defense this week, think again. We play a lot of Tampa 2 and we DO play soft by design. We like to keep your receiver and your QB in our DB's line of sight through the entire pattern. We do NOT like to get our back turned to the QB! We'd rather play soft then come up and make a hit and hope for a fumble, a tipped pass pick or to jump a route, which we CAN do!
3. We do give up yards in the air, but not because we are terrible at it. THIS is what many of you are overlooking. Many teams have abandoned the run early against us because we DO stop it.
Another reason we give up aerial yards is because when we get a lead teams pass on almost every down. Yes this happens to your defense also but remember! The Bucs defense only gave up 18 more points than the Saints did all season! In fact, the Saints and Bucs are numbers 3 and 4 in the league in points allowed! The Bucs scored 10 more points than the Saints this year, so there is only an 8 point differential in favor of the Saints for the entire year! Again, just something to think about! 😉

I'm confused. Did we not take advantage of every advantage you're listing about your defense? twice?

I want you to ask yourself this question as objectively as you can: If the Bucs offense scored 34 points in the first outing and then 38 in the second, would you respect the Saints defense or would you realize that this could simply a bad matchup for the Saints?

Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, and Drew Brees played 10 quarters together this season. Something to think about.

Dude, we know about the Bucs. We play each other twice a season. We get that you're excited because it's been so long since y'all made the playoffs. Enjoy.

You should stop and consider you're #1 against the run because your secondary is a sieve.

OP is right about that Tampa 2 and it has given us fits dating back to its inception with the Dungy lead Bucs.

Tampa Bay will not be easy work, it's a divisional for we are playing for the 3rd time this year, two teams EXTREMELY familiar with each other...it will be a good game.

After the 50-burger we landed on the Vikings (damn that felt good), our second and fourth highest scoring games this season were 38 and 34. Care to guess which games those were?

Yeah, they were both games against the Bucs.

So... yeah. I'm gonna say the Saints offense knows how to deal with the Bucs defense. But thanks for your concern.
