That's not decipherable on anything
Fun stuff on the link tho
Look at Run Defense... Giving up 4.7ypc, 4th worst
BUT 13th in 1st downs allowed rushing. So you can run some, just not so much when it counts. Kittens first two FGs were perfect examples....

nice italics on Vaccaro. He's coming on steadily and solidly.
More kudos to Corey White. Last night might have been the best game I've seen him play. What a score that would be if he turns out to be a serviceable #3 or even #2!
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Did you realize Jordan and Galette account for 20.5 sacks alone? - blueslover on 12/9/13 at 5:44 pm|
don't forget beasting LBs Martez with 3 and Shanle with .5 last year :lol:
Pretty kewl to think about adding Victor Butler to the pass rush mix next year too. After such a dearth of pass rush these past few years it is an amazing turnaround....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Any updates on Butler? - blueslover on 12/9/13 at 5:37 pm|
no word, 3 weeks should be tomorrow-ish methinks. Would be a pleasant surprise if so. very doubtful IMO

there are no gimme games in the NFL. That said, I'll take an away game with Kellen Clemens at QB with our D anytime.
They're 2-5 since he took over. In the two wins he was a combined 19 of 38. After 38 NFL games and starting 18 of them his completion rate is 52.2%. 12 TDs & 18 INTs lifetime....

With dead money in his deal that option basically breaks down to keep him for the $5mil hit or lose $3.2mil of cap to cut him.
