Default Re: And it starts...

Put me in the "extremely worried" group, and it all stems from the first half. We played our starters throughout the first two quarters, and they were beyond miserable. Four Saint possessions facing our starting D (the last with Joey Harrington playing QB), and they resulted in two TDs and two drives that ended inside our 10.

Yes, perhaps we were playing a simple, vanilla defense. But the Saints were gashing us with equally unimaginative runs up the gut--pretty much everything was between the tackles, and they were getting 7 yards a pop. If you need to run exotic schemes or blitzes just to keep from giving up big chunks on basic interior runs, your defense is in a world of hurt.

I actually think we will have a pretty solid 3rd-and-long defense for once, but the problem is that teams will rarely find themselves in long yardage against us unless we do something about the gaping maw in the middle of our defensive line.
