We continued with the same dumb penilties we made against Washington! Sorry, but this defense scares the hell out of me. Eli looks to be coming out of his "slump" despite the Interceptions. Obviously, the Saints are no longer a top tier team. With the Falcons and the Ravans coming up and the always tough Eagles that always seem to rise up to beat us, this team is going to have to cut the stupid penilties and play error free games. The "D" will have to play way better to have a chance at the playoffs, never mind the SB!

The Saints may not be a top tier team, but they are a top tier offense. Only one other team held the NO offense to 20 points or less all season. Good defense doesn't always mean shutting a team out, we certainly didn't do that a whole lot last year... and that seemed to work. This defense will never remind anyone of '86, but neither will the offense.

Like a lot of long-time fans, I miss those defenses too :(

I am really wondering about TC. Is he even more wiley than I ever gave him credit for? Is it possible that he knew what Wilson could bring to this team and has been holding him for the stretch?

Sorry but I disagree. The defense played pretty good. They only allowed 20 points and I think one of those scores came after a turnover. I think Eli played just ok. Yeah he had 4 TD's bu he also had two interceptions and two close calls.

Did you notice that Brees had a couple of picks as well? It comes with playing the position. The guys that can put it behind them and look ahead are the winners.

BTW...I feel pretty confident when I say that Eli outplayed Brees last night. Although we have all agreed that we really don't know what elite is, I will say this. If Eli isn't elite, then neither is Brees.

Giving up just 27 points to Brees is pretty damn good...

I think it is more like our defense played better than NO defense. Eli and Brees are pretty close talent wise.

Not to mention we won the return game in spades. What was the best non-turnover field position the saints had all night? Their own 30 or something?

the defense played the Saints and Drew Brees yesterday! their offense is no joke and they are tough on any opposing d. ours stood up to the Saints and helped us to a victory!

i think Fewell can game plan for any team and be effective with his "bend but dont break" attitude!

i expect our d to effectively shutdown opposing offenses the next 7 weeks!

If not for Eli's pick 6 we would of held them to 20 points. I think the defense has played good for 3 games now. Held the pack to 10 the skins to 17 and the saints to 20 points. One of the redskins TDs came off of a freak fumble too.
