Say a Prayer for the Saints September 25, 2007

Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports.

New Orleans SaintsAfter suffering another loss against the Tennessee Titans on Monday, the New Orleans Saints are now 0-3. The Titans defeated the Saints 31-14 in front of many disappointed Saints fans. The Saints haven’t started 0-3 since 1997, and it looks like it’s only going to get worse. They will be facing some very tough teams in the upcoming weeks, and will likely be without running back Deuce McAllister.  There are reports that McAllister suffered a torn ACL in the first half and will miss the rest of the season.

For most of the night, the entire offense of the Saints looked out of sync.  Drew Brees seems to be a completely different quarterback this season.  Brees threw four interceptions and had zero touchdowns against the Titans on Monday night.  Brees was rushed or hit almost every time he attempted to pass, and was obviously frustrated. 

The Saints’ defense for the most part was horrible.  The interception they recorded against Vince Young on Monday was their first forced turnover this season. Young had an incredible amount of time in the pocket and was hardly touched the entire game.  When he was rushed, he scrambled away and picked up positive yards.

The only positive thing for the Saints thus far is Reggie Bush has finally made an appearance.  Bush only had a very mediocre 15 rushing yards on 7 carries, but scored two touchdowns against the Titans.  Bush’s carries will increase now that McAllister is done for the season, but look for him to continue to share the load with Aaron Stecker.

I have to say that the Saints are the most disappointing team in the NFL.  Their offense is out of sync and is not productive at all. Their defense is almost non existent.  Nothing they do is working.  I ‘m just shocked to see a team that played so well last season, look so bad on both offense and defense this season. Now, the Saints are in a hole with a 0-3 record, and lost an offensive weapon to a struggling offense.  Let us all bow our heads in prayer.

Cant really figure out what’s going on with the Saints. Same team same personnel different results.I hope Deuce isnt gone for any extended period of time. Not sure Reggie is durable enough to get the hard yards off tackle and be an every down back.Those two guys reall complimented each other well last year. I have no explanation for Brees. It’s almost like its pre-season and his timing is off. I still think the Saints will come around and be a force. It’s a long season you never know whats going to happen.

I don’t think Bush can carry the load of an every down back, but you never know. Bush just might step up and play some amazing football.

I just heard someone talking about perhaps the pressure of carrying the hopes and dreams of the city of NO was catching up to the Saints. I think it is more along the lines of they had a bad D last year and overcame it with blazing offense…and this year everyone has schemed and scouted ’em up and stuffing them. It is up to Sean Peyton to counterattack and come up with a new plan…fast.

I’m not sure if Sean Peyton can come up with a counterattack. When the Saints were gettinig exposed by the Titans, the only thing Peyton drew up were trick plays that didn’t work.

I can break it down real fast..

1. Peyton wants to turn Bush into a “between the tackles” back.. which he is not.. Bush is an overrated back, in just the running aspect of the game.. Bush is a very underrated player.. being what he brings to a team, as far as all he can do.. Bush can not handle the work load of being an everydown back.. hence why he had White at USC

2. Peyton and the Saints had a outstanding year last year. .because teams had never schemed against Bush, and Colston.. This year.. teams have been able to take Bush out of the game plan.. and that makes the Saints rely on passing the ball more.. Just like teams have done with LT and the Chargers..

3. The Saints offensive line is not all that grand.. and the defense still have some holes in it.. Hell the Cowbloys defense is great on paper.. but you put Roy Williams in coverage.. QB’s have a field day.. unless your Rex Grossman… 🙂

Breaking News: CB Jason David is out 4-6 weeks with a broken arm. The Saints need more than a prayer.

i don’t really watch any sports except baseball and i rarely even do that, but I think that you have a really good blog going. Kidal25 summed it up- you’d be a really good sports writer!
