However I have heard from dallas and Eagle fans in Shreveport and Lake Charles that the Eagles D are gonna stop MI and AK.

re: Saints are pretty good in the red zone
Of those six we didn't score, one was because we were in V-formation (vs WSH), 1 was because of a fumble that is a TD 9/10 times (@ CAR), 1 missed FG, and 3 were for failed fourth down conversions (@ BAL would've worked if Kamara holds the pitch and one in Week 17 vs CAR... so who cares).

1 turnover (that should've been a TD to ice CAR) in the red zone in 16 games is truly remarkable. Efficiency kills.

"inside the 20
91.3 percent"

20 + 9 - 1
= 28
3 = 3

28-3

4 * 7 points = 28
4 - 1 = 3

28-3

It is foretold

A TD 70% of the time is completely absurd.

Certainly is.

Sean Payton doing Sean Payton things. What was it? A year or two ago when they were terrible in the red zone? Apparently he and the team dedicated themselves to making sure that didn't happen again. That and AK41.

Ensminger needs to Drive to NOLA in the off-season and have a red-zone efficiency meeting

re: Saints are pretty good in the red zone
A huge part of why we struggled in the red zone prior to last year was because we lost that Colston/Graham type guy that will just get it when you lob it up one on one near the goalline.

Now Thomas can kill guys on the slants and has started to come on with goalline fades, but if there's one weakness in his game it's the lack of doing what Graham and Colston made a living on catching those 1-4 yard postups right at the goalline, which is kind of mystifying because he can destroy dudes doing just that on 10-15 yard passes with consistency.
