best offense ever gets handled by a very good defense. our defense needs to improve big time before we have a legit shot at winning a superbowl. before we talk about last years colts team( who's defense didnt play well in the regular season but played very very well in the playoffs), they are the exception and not the rule.

Guys, we are wasting Brees as long as we dont give him a good Defense to help him out. Eli Manning, like I said in another post, is no where near the QB #9 is for this team, Eli has a running game and a better D to help him win.

Guess who doesn't?

I guarantee you, if you give Brees better talent and a better D help, we make the playoffs.

Numbers do not lie

Yep, a high powered Offense is fun to watch and exciting. But......the Giants swarming, agrressive Defense is what won the game. The Patriots Defense looked old late in the game.....

After looking at that game we need at least 1DT 2 CB 1MLB to even come close to a good football team on D. BW we could also use a 3rd down rush specialist

Agreed...the G-Men were rushing 4 and got alot of pressure on Brady...wish we had that.

Need a DT, good LBs, and how bout a Safety too.

After watching the game, I know how important it is for us to improve our defense.

See what a difference a pass rush makes? Saints needs to improve the front 7 first.

Our DEs are too big. Will Smith was nice, but he is too big now. CG is a DT now.

The Giants D is also aggressive they dictate what the Offense can do, not the read and react of the Gibbs/Saints. But the thing that impressed me the most was the number of the guys the Giants rotated at DT and DE. Most of their backups look better than the Saints' starters.....

This thread makes me feel sad now...

We're not even close to a competent defense.

Way too many holes..
We're not set anywhere on that side of the field..
Everywhere could use an upgrade.
