The game is also in Atlanta and not in New Orleans on the 10th anniversary of the blocked punt. That alone could also change the game.It's basically different teams at this point of the season. We were starting Laurinitis and didn't have Rankins last time. That alone could change this game drastically
"they didn't man-handle us or anything"????In all honesty, The Saints were out-coached in the game against the Falcons. They didn't man-handle us or anything, we were not prepared for a lot of what they like to do.
Their passing game is nothing like ours.
Their offense is centered around stretch plays, boot legs, mis-directions and play action.
So if we know what they're going to do, then we'll be in better position to make the stops.
Most of their big plays came from busted coverages, no one was near the edge where Coleman or Freeman were running. Check the highlights"they didn't man-handle us or anything"????
Devonta Freeman & Tevin Coleman: These two killed the Saints in the first meeting, rushing for a combined 194 yards and three touchdowns. Just as important however, they also combined for 8 catches for 102 yards and a score. They can both run the football, but they can also catch it, and either one on a Saints’ safety or linebacker could spell bad news. The Saints simply have to control these two guys better than they did the first time around.
Not to mention the 45-32 score
I watched the game, busted coverage, missed assignments, the list goes on and on. Today we are trying to cover the passing game to no avail.Most of their big plays came from busted coverages, no one was near the edge where Coleman or Freeman were running. Check the highlights
