...needs to learn how to keep his head up when attempting to make a tackle. On Watson’s TD run, he had a chance to lay a hit on Watson at the 3 and instead, Watson did a little hop and avoided a diving Williams, with his head down. It has to stop. Aside from the fact he could get injured and a concussion.

Marcus Williams can improve his tackling technique, that's true. But, you need to give him his props. We were losing 3-14 at halftime. Somebody needed to step up and make a momentum changing play and that was Marcus Williams with the 3rd quarter INT. He was in great position to make that play and he did it. That changed the complexion of the whole game and gave the Saints offense the momentum they needed to take charge.

Many also forget that with the Minny Miracle game that it was Marcus Williams that earlier made the momentum changing INT that turned that game completely around. Yes, in the end his mistake cost us dearly, but we would have been toast much earlier without that INT.

Go review some Saints film of Tebucky Jones and then tell me how bad Marcus William is.
I'm not saying he's bad. Just that he made some mental mistakes that lead to the two biggest TD's.
The last one was honestly all on PJ, but Williams still should have stayed in high safety position, he could have made a difference.
Everyone on the defense made some mental errors so it's definitely not all on him.

Also worth noting: the one TD that Latt did give up, he had an interception the play before that got called back due to Loewen jumping off-sides.

Yes, it seems he should have been in high safety but that might have been a scheme issue. Also, I was wondering if he was fully healthy after coming off the field earlier in the game. He should have been over the top of Hopkins with Latt trailing on the deep pass just before the last TD, but Hopkins was on fire most of the night.

I kind of discounted Latt's INT on the Loewen off sides. Watson saw that off sides and flag clear as day and decided to make a chance throw knowing he couldn't lose. I don't think Watson throws that pass otherwise.

People have unrealistic expectations. I think a lot of Saints fans are just spoiled. We are looking at and reacting harshly about which DE is our rightful 2nd because one had an indeterminate number of draft picks used to get him and he other didn’t.

Talking about a lack of depth at WR because of who we wanted as our 5th WR to be inactive.

We have things pretty good compared to other teams.
Yes
Draft picks that could have been used in addition!
