Typically the story has been about Drew Brees and the electric Saints offense and of course the lack of a defense.
So far in 2009 that’s not been the case.


he completely re-vamped defense has quickly become one of the top ranking units in football and after three games this season they rank a respectable tenth in the league in total defense and fourteenth in points allowed.


  • 11th in total sacks with six
  • 13th in scoring defense (defensive touchdowns)
  • 16th in total tackles
  • 1st in interceptions

Those stats must be pure garbage because Jim Rome trashed our secondary. :covri:

Calvin Johnson, DeSean Jackson, TO, Lee Evans, Josh Reed?? Not so good? Who do you consider a good WR?

Anybody that can rip our secondary apart. Come to think about it, there are no good receivers in the NFL. Except for the Brent Celek guy, he's pretty good.

I remember in offseason we were all saying if we even have a top 15 (let alone top 10 or better) defense, it definitely means playoffs.


Well so far so good :plus-un2:

My thoughts exactly. I think we will definitely be in the upper half of league defense wies.

You forgot 5th in run defense. Or yards per game allowed rushing.

I think the D has improved, but i wouldnt get too high on it. You played a rookie QB and a first time starting QB. That does make a big difference.

haha yeah that is the best win YET. I am ready to see your D play a good offense though. I dont think the Jets offense is great, but their running game is pretty good. That will be a good test to the Run D

You have said this repeatedly Kent, so is this going to be the same thing you say after the Jets game? Giants game? Is this going to be your only point about our D until we lose?

You can make point out whatever info you want to make excuses as to why our Defense is not proving anything, but eventually you are going to have to eat the crow, so please let us know how you like it served.
It really is okay to admit that an aspect of someone elses team is good, we wont tell the other dirty bird fans.
