Their remarks are OK... but they put far too much emphasis on the offense, IMO.

They almost ignore our defense, which has been flat gettin' it done lately. I like the last (short) sentence of the blurb... because it's spot-on:

...The (Saints) run defense, with Sheldon Rankins contributing, sure looks better. Look out for these guys.
It was actually interesting to see the following comment (when they discussed the Rams) because it showed HOW WELL our offense played vs. a great Rams' defense:

Taking on the Saints' offense in New Orleans is a tough assignment, even for a fantastic unit like the Rams' defense. But to give up 49 points?! For an idea of how out-of-character that is, consider that Los Angeles had allowed a total of 50 points in the team's previous four games combined. And seven of those points weren't even on the defense, coming via a Landon Collins pick-six in the London loss to the Giants.

Of course this guy doesn't have Brees in his top eight for MVP consideration.

Rams defense allowed only 43 points the previous 4 games.

That's insane what Brees and company did to that unit.

But in the Lions blurb he says how about some MVP love for Stafford. :jpshakehead:

Jordan Hill is really kicking butt lately.
We need to extend his contract!
