I beg to differ "great win". A win it is. TB beating teams Packers, LV, Carolina like by more than a touchdown. Saint barely beat Carolina and got beat by Packers and LV. Saints ain't living up to it right now. The defense has to get straightened out. Its been 6 games in and same old story. Offense had a few flubbs, but they held their own. You have to let Swearinger get some time or something cause Marcus Williams ain't cutting it. Dude still lost like a lil kid looking for his mommy. 4 years in and bruh its time to move on. Saints need to make some moves cause playing like they did yesterday they gone get smoked by better teams.

I don't know we usually start slow, hit an amazing mid-season peak, then sort of fall off in the playoffs. So maybe in this crazy 2020 season we started meh, then sort of become "okay", then hit a crazy late-season peak and carry that into the playoffs?? I still have hope and faith in this team, I think the defense will improve. I still don't see our offense as being dangerous or explosive enough thought....

I think those days are over. Between shoddy defensive play, lack of the big play anymore, and every ref gunning for us....we are doomed to watch every game go down to the wire no matter who we are playing.

Serious question. How do you think this defense improves?

I think as fans we've vastly underestimated the value of Preseason and training camps and well, just plain practice. Defense across the league is suffering. ALL teams. Scoring is up 16% this season which is a whopping increase over last year.

Defense is harder. We all know the rules and the league-culture is now heavily biased towards scoring and big plays. Defense takes more time, time that's been deprived of teams this season.

So yes, I feel our defense can and will improve. I have no hard evidence or proof of that of course....

I get all that. I'm worried about Saints. Can't speak on other teams. This defense....its the same thing game in and out. Marcus is LOST. They not checking each other. Communication is not there. 1 sack up front. How are they gonna contend with good teams. Where is that beast mentality. Laying the hit stick.

Oh I left something out: Crowd noise.

Crowd noise in the 'Dome is the 12'th man on defense....and that's been lost to us all season.

There's way too much "sky is falling" on here about our defense though. Seriously, it's not THAT bad. We're not the Cowboys, Bengals, or Jets.

Again I can only worry bout THIS team. I'm not relying on those teams to play defense. This team defense gotta do something different. This defense beat Carolina. But will it beat Tampa again. Along with KC, Chicago, 49ers?

I really don't care if we win by 30 or 1. A win is a win.

I've accepted every week is just going to be a grind it out game. If the Saints do lose its going to be a close game. Saints probably won't blow anyone out but they aren't going to get run out of the building by anyone either.
