I was in a sports bar that was jammed and they had the Saints on a small tv. It was difficult making out actual numbers of Saints players.

How did he do and did they play him much?

Thx

Was just about to start a thread on "How did Rankins and Breaux do?".

I know Rakins got a nice hit on Kaep, which made me feel good, but beyond that...?

They kept showing Rankins on the sidelines. Every time I looked for him in the game he wasn't there. I'm not sure how many snaps he got.

-Pushed the pocket
-We rushed 4 a lot so there weren't many 1 on 1's for him to exploit
-was upset with himself he didn't grab the fumble
-Flashed a spin move/bull rush/hump move(kind of a straight arm)
-Think he got blanked out on the stat sheet
-Could see him giving the olinemen fits
-Kelly likes his QB to get the ball out quickly, wasn't a good game to see him flash
-Came out of the game healthy
- C+
-Played more than 10 snaps
-Didn't see the QB hit but that's good news

He's going to be a problem. He's got good footwork and the agility of an edge rusher in tight quarters but he got chipped or helped by another olineman rather often this game. One of his spin moves got him by the initial olineman only to see him get chipped by a second blocker. Few times his hump move allowed him to re-establish the LOS but the ball would come out quickly and negate his progress. As Lelito said...he can dent a pocket.


Will be easier to see him flash against pocket passers/ teams that utilize 5 and 7 step drops/ and when we 5man blitz a lot to get 1 on 1's

He was getting some push in the middle, but he didn't make any impact plays. Let's face it. This was his first real action all season, and he's a rookie coming off a broken leg. I didn't expect miracles. I was encouraged, though, by his punch and the leverage he plays with.

The QB pressure against the 49ers was not good enough. I didn't key in on Rankins, but I didn't notice him either. He was credited with only 1 tackle in 38 snaps. I think its safe to say there is a lot of room for improvement.
