PFF Analysis of Game #1 ATL @ NO


Defensive Players Coming up Big
quote:

With less than a full stable of outside linebackers on hand to contribute, Junior Galette got good work in (a sack and four hurries) and Parys Haralson contributed after a short week of practice (a sack and a hurry)

Cam Jordan On Fire
quote:

Defensive end Cameron Jordan's (+5.2) eight QB pressures (two hits and six hurries) on 43 pass rushes came primarily at the hands of...Lamar Holmes. Jordan, the now-3-4 DE previously known for his run defense, proved too fast to the outside and too strong on bull rushes for Holmes to handle – a slippery inside-out move at 5:04 of the third quarter combined elements and left Homes chasing as Jordan took Ryan to the turf.

A Day to Forget for Jahri Evans
quote:

Jahri Evans has had better games. In fact, he’s never had a game graded to this depth (-4.0) in the years we’ve been around and this one was held down entirely by his run blocking – an aspect of his game (see 2008-2009) that was once on a league-best level. One rough outing does not a season make, of course, but coming off a season in which his run blocking was a middling asset, a showing like this is reason for further inspection. There were times in this game where Evans simply whiffed (Q4 7:18) and others where he was out hustled and caught scrambling to keep up.

Offensive Targets Stay Hot
quote:

Drew Brees has made a living by working to his seam and dump-off guys — namely Marques Colston (+1.0 receiving), Jimmy Graham (+1.5), and Darren Sproles (+2.6) – and that continued as expected to open 2013. Targeting the three a total of 19 times, they connected on 15 and marched with nine first downs and a pair of touchdowns.


Game Notes:
--Roman Harper and Kenny Vaccaro rushed the passer a combined 10 times. Only Kansas City’s tandem of Eric Berry and Hussain Abdullah saw more pass rush opportunities (13).

--On 42 drop-backs, Matt Ryan saw pressure 20 times and his grade when pressured (-2.4) nearly wiped out his efficient play when throwing from a clean pocket (+2.5)… with no pressure: 17-of-21 and two touchdowns; with pressure: 8-of-17 with an interception and three sacks.

--The interior D-line pairing of Jonathan Babineaux and Corey Peters effectively shut down the middle of the line for any keep-‘em-honest run attempts the Saints had in mind.

--Game Ball given to Cam Jordan for all-around performance.

jahri looked pitiful yesterday. Shadow of himself drew shouldn't have been greedy and we'd still have nicks. Greedy SOH Drew Bald Brees.

The most encouraging thing was finally seeing pressure from the defensive line. It's been years since that has happened.

I need to start taking notes. This is starting to be too much.

PFF had nothing to say about Ingram.
Stop bringing him up into every freaking thread.

Could be worse. At least Emmitt's grandma passed on some genes. Now if you said Ingram runs like my Grandma, that would be much worse.

people weren't making comparisons of Ingram to you when he was coming out of Bama. They were to Emmitt.

Ingram may never be great! That's fine. He doesn't have to be. Make him easier to keep. A lot of his carries seem to be unlucky. My dad and I were laughing. Pierre gets a clean or semi clean lane to run, but when Ingram got ball guys were in his lap immediately. Like the blocking broke down or a perfect stunt was called.

Pierre is just a damned solid player. All he does is make good plays. Stretches for first downs. the only screw up I can recall was the fumble against SF in playoffs. But to be fair he was unconscious before the ball or his body hit the ground so he gets a pass.
