Payton and Brees always believe they can win, and their mental toughness makes a huge difference, However, it's hard to get excited about this team b/c the defense is just so bad and often seems to just be going through the motions. Don't know what the deal on that side of the ball is, but it's looking an awful lot like the D is going to cost Drew another shot at a ring yet again this season.

Yep they gotta make a move or two to shore up D.

Yeah I can’t complain at all about this team’s heart and ability to fight through adversity.

But man, the back end of this defense needs to get fixed quickly (not to mention health of the WR and Armstead) or it won’t matter.

It’s pretty impressive that this team is 4-2. Imagine if the GLARING holes get semi addressed.
See, this is where I’m at. Thinking about starting a thread about it and getting others’ takes.

All of our flaws are fixable. It’s mental errors that players have shown in the past they can avoid.

Marcus Williams certainly isn’t perfect. But his coverage is somehow worse than normal. Lattimore hasn’t been Lattimore (although he was very good today). There is a case to be made that everyone in our DBackfield is playing below expectation and could figure it out and be really good at SOME point.

If that happens and we can get back MT and Sanders and the pass rush continues to improve, we could actually peak at the end of the season for once. The talent is still there, but they haven’t shown it as a collective.

This defense doesn’t lack talent, at least not enough to be this bad. Plenty of less talented defenses play better than this. This is on Allen at this point. He can fix it or he should be fired.

Exactly.

At this point, this D either improves a ton and we make a legit run in the playoffs because of it or Allen has to go. Too many talented and smart football players are making too many bad mistakes.

I've said it once before, DA has to be held accountable. I'm hearing rumors he and Bo Pelini are hanging out together. J/K
