    So I wasn't able to watch the game but I went on NFL.com and looked at the stats and it said that Quin had 7 tackles and I was wondering if anybody who saw the game noticed whether the tackles were mainly in run support, tackling guys after they had already beat him and made the catch, or him making plays on others blown coverages?

    FYI sometimes the CB can have perfect coverage and the QB and WR make a perfect play, I remember that happening one time on a slant. Quinn looked solid in pass coverage, the thing was the Saints did not throw much when the ones where in the game, they ran a lot of sweeps and screens.

    Also the Saints ran a lot from the spread, Quinn covers the slot guy, remember him blitzing on a play or two from the slot.

    Alot of run support. We couldn't stop anyone at the LOS.

    We couldn't tackle at all. That was one of the worst tackling performances I've seen from an NFL team in quite some time. Pollard, Cushing, D-Ryans....all of them couldn't tackle a lick Saturday night.

    It was not all run support... I was trying to keep a closer watch on KJ, so I always checked out the number on the player that got beat by a receiver - and at least in the first half, that was never KJ, but usually GQ. I think he was beat at least 3-4 times - I don`t know that much about football, so I can`t say if it was always his fault, but his man did catch severall balls - and KJs didn`t.

    This says it all. NO would never have put up that many points early if our guys had been making tackles. I noticed that in most of the cases someone was there...it just took the second, third or fourth person to actually stop the other guy.
