Say a Prayer for the Saints September 25, 2007Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports.
After 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.
