The future of this defense shined tonight. These guys dominated the 2nd half and had our crowd cheering on the defense in a way I hadn't felt in a looong time.
Tez took over the 4th quarter and was a total game changer. Gillette was also just as disruptive off the edge. Hicks is just a complete load and demands to be double teamed or he will crumble your offensive line.
NASCAR: we've seen it a few times already prior to this game but they've never had a situation to feature it like in this game. We all got to see the results it produces when executed. Tez, Jordan, Smith and Junyah were on the field the entire 4th quarter with a relentless speed rush after the chargers went pass heavy. Rivers knew it was coming and there was nothing he could do about it.
I included Corey White in the topic bc this kid has great cover skills and has made a lot of good plays. Yeah, he is a rookie and fricks up all the time but has also been a starter since day 1. Great learning year for him.
The defense still has a ways to go but it was good to finally see the defense handle this situation tonight.
I had a blast. Congrats Drew. Thanks for the win Saints. I'm going to sleep.
