| Score Board|| Predict Les' post-game explanations, hemming and hawwing - Geauxgurt on 9/20/14 at 9:30 pm|
I think he'll say that we just played a damn strong team, that our youth showed, and that we were just a few plays from winning.
| Score Board|| Welter in the game tells me all I need to know about Chavis and Miles - Geauxgurt on 9/20/14 at 8:46 pm|
The last 5 plays the guy has been embarrassing and costing this and he continues to stay in.
| Score Board|| While I disagreed with his approach, Les did have reasoning for the end of half - Geauxgurt on 9/20/14 at 7:52 pm|
Les called the timeout with the hope that we could get a solid return out of the punt.
Once LSU didn't, he decided to run it and see what we'd get.
Once we didn't get any yardage and with the fact that MSU had all three timeouts, he let the clock run down and was willing to try a one play sh...
| Score Board|| Big runs coming to the outside, so what do you do? - Geauxgurt on 9/20/14 at 7:40 pm|
You run straight up the gut or off-tackle for 90% of your running plays with RBs. Genius. :lol:
| Score Board|| What happened to that great OL coach we hired? - Geauxgurt on 9/20/14 at 7:00 pm|
This OL has looked putrid in 3 out of 4 games to this point. So much great technique out there, seeing as Grimes is such a great tutor on it.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Why are White/Lewis getting a pass on that last pass play? - Geauxgurt on 9/16/14 at 11:51 am|
I know Robinson committed the holding penalty, but it was White and Lewis that both covered the same guy leaving Hawkins wide open.
Yes, the penalty was horrible, but it only would've put them at the 29 and still a 45+ yard field goal. It was the blown coverage that actually cost the Saints the g...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Hawthorne's improved play - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 10:41 pm|
Over the first two games of this season, I know the DB play and DL play has been pretty atrocious, but one pleasant surprise has been the play from Hawthorne. Guy has been playing some real solid ball so far this season. Anyone else feel this way?...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Seattle is about to go down to San Diego - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 6:06 pm|
While I know everyone around here is doom and gloom and I am in no way happy with how this team has played, SD is about to knock off the invincible Seattle Seahawks.
The fact is in the NFL, you never know how things are going to work out, and hopefully the Saints can turn things around now.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Saints have lost last 3 regular season road games by a combined 9 points - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 3:53 pm|
Of their last 8 regular season road games, the saints have lost 2 by blowout, and the other 5 by a combined 18 points or by an average margin of 3.6 points.
That is the scary thing. They could've easily been 6-2 in those 8 games, but if you remember they all included team fails especially at the ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| It doesn't matter if you are 8-0 at home - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 3:44 pm|
if you end up 3-5 or worse on the road. You at best are 11-5 and are almost guaranteed not to be the top seed and will likely get blasted on the road in the playoffs again, so people saying we have "home games" need to realize what these two games mean.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| We are now 0-2 with the ole Tom Benson statue - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 3:16 pm|
Thanks Tom for erecting a statue of yourself. :lol: :bow:...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Should the Saints run hurry up more during the game? - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 1:35 pm|
It seems our offense runs more smoothly in 2 minute drills, whether passing or running the ball. To avoid wasted timeouts and keep the defense on its heels, wouldn't it make sense to put the hurry up into action more than just at the end of halves for the Saints' offense?...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Brees is officially worse at clock management than Les Miles - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 1:11 pm|
It is unbelievable to me that a seasoned veteran that is supposedly considered a top 10 QB of all time cannot for the life of him get plays consistently snapped in time. It is utterly pathetic in fact.
As great as Brees is, this has hurt his team over and over again, and clearly he and Payton hav...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| This reminds me a lot of the 2010 to 2011 defenses - Geauxgurt on 9/7/14 at 4:20 pm|
In 2010, we ranked in the top 5 defenses after the season, went 11-5 and lost on the road in the playoffs to Seattle. In 2011, everyone was expecting that stout defense to stick around, and it was a super hyped offense that carried the team with a mediocre defense (#24) that got lit up at times.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Just one game, but this team has some issues - Geauxgurt on 9/7/14 at 3:25 pm|
Defense simply was pathetic and it starts with Rob Ryan's gameplay. Horrible, just horrible. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Missed assignments by the OL and TEs - Geauxgurt on 9/2/14 at 11:27 am|
Particularly in the first half of Saturday's game, it was blatantly obvious that the OL, TEs, and sometimes FBs were missing a ton of blocking assignments both on running and passing plays.
While this is a cause for concern, it definitely improved in the 2nd half, and hopefully that is the type ...
| More Sports Board|| This NBA Finals seems very eerily similar to 2004 Finals - Geauxgurt on 6/15/14 at 9:42 pm|
Favored team splits first 2 games, then gets dominated for 3 straight to lose the series.
Pistons were a lot like this Spurs team. Well coached, talent and depth at several positions and bench players that contributed.
Lakers were lauded and expected to be amazing, Kobe sucked a big one while ...
| More Sports Board|| Should the NBA institute extreme anti-racism campaign within the game? - Geauxgurt on 4/29/14 at 4:04 pm|
Clearly, the NBA is making it clear it will not tolerate any racist beliefs in its business. If this is the fact, then it should not simply selectively apply this rule to a single owner, but to the entire league from top to bottom. This should include harsher punishments or consequences if prejudice...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Don't forget about PRob at CB next season - Geauxgurt on 3/11/14 at 11:37 pm|
I think people are overlooking P Rob's potential as our 2nd CB this coming season. He showed serious flashes in 2011 and even in 2012. His development was a bit stunted with the Spags zone cover debacle which went away from his strengths, but I think he has a chance to be a legit corner for this tea...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| To clarify to some, Cam Jordan isn't a guaranteed FA next season - Geauxgurt on 3/9/14 at 6:48 pm|
Saints have the right to get a 5th year from him as a 1st rounder. His compensation will then be based on his draft position, which will give him the average of the top 4-25 paid DEs the previous year. It is akin to a franchise tag but better for the team and was agreed upon in the new CBA.
