I cannot remember the last time a Saints LB jumped a route and caught the pass in stride for a big return.

If someone could gif it, that would be awesome.

It is the impact play that we have been desperately in need of. It is arguably the first one we have had all year long.

Both Robertson and Stupar are good coverage linebackers which was an issue the last few seasons we have built a competitive front seven coming into the season and we are seeing the results.

I wonder when the last time was that we had back-to-back weeks with INT's by linebackers?!

I really thought we were about to give up a huge play over the middle by the way we were lined up. I guess that was the point.
That happened on that long TE td... I am wondering if KV was responsible or if it was Robertson.

Robertson was late and could not catch up, while KV took the responsibility to double cover someone who was going over the middle. Byrd was unable to tackle the TE along the sideline.

The linebacker play has been much better then last year. A lot of guys got fired after last year. I hope these guys stick around.

That wasn't a slow pass either that thing was like a fastball which makes it even better.

Both of those pickups have far exceeded expectations. Have to give the front office props on that, they missed on some big acquisitions but they did a good job with the sensible role player contracts for linebackers this year.
