Overall butt-kicking by the Saints, they look great - best of luck to them this year. Individual performances: - Positives - - Defense - Mario got after the QB. Okoye was spotted applying some semblance of pressure once or twice. Nading played well vs. scrubs, not so well vs. first teamers. Jamison played well vs scrubs. Barwin continues to impress, he provides consistent energy and pass rush. McCain appeared to provide tight coverage when I was able to see him. Adibi laid a huge hit on Henderson. - Offense - AJ's still a beast. Slaton made productive runs off of less than optimal blocking. Schaub's throws were mostly well-placed, just too often short of the marker. David Anderson continues to be a reliable 4th WR who exceeds expectations. Dreesen does a great Owen Daniels impression, very authentic. Andre Davis burned #1 draft pick Jenkins for a TD. I'm giving Orlovsky an overall positive review for his 2nd preseason game. It's obviously up for debate. Did he look better than Sage? No. However, his throws were strong and mostly on target and he was decisive in the pocket. His INT was a horrible decision more than a bad throw. His goal line sack I don't really put on his shoulders, Casey was open but he had the defender on him before he had any chance to **** his arm and throw. I think with time in the system Orlovsky can be a good back-up QB. - Negatives - - Defense - Okam and Okoye gave no push on run downs and gave up some huge runs. This doesn't bode well. Our LB's as a group appeared to over pursue and/or get sealed off on big runs. Glover Quin had plenty of tackles - because he gave up plenty of easy catches. He wasn't able to provide tight coverage on the plays I watched him. Fred Bennett doesn't appear to have good recovery speed, once he bites on a move someone else has to make the tackle. Didn't look good to me tonight. Busing had some good pass rushes, but as a safety he gave up multiple huge runs to the outside to the Saints 4th teamers. Consecutive plays went wide right for TD's (first was brought back for a hold, but Busing missed the tackle 1 on 1). I like his size and aggression, just don't think he was a very good last line of defense.... which isn't a good thing for a safety. - Offense - Arian Foster looked like 'just a guy'. Chris Brown followed up an awesome game 1 performance with a dismal week 2 performance, although he had no holes whatsoever. Duane Brown looked o.k. in pass pro but did his best to kill some drives with penalties. Brink sucks. Casey made a nice grab or two, he also had a drop and gave away a pick. Not going to be too rough on him, the Saints already did that for me. - First team overall impression - - Offense - Our OL got man-handled in the run game, it took quick decisive running by Slaton to make anything out of it. The Saints dominated the LOS and our offense sputtered without a run game to move the chains. - Defense - Our DL, particularly the tackles, got pushed around by the Saints interior lineman, and our linebackers were rendered ineffective without good play up front. Our secondary just looked average to me. The Saints are the best offense in the league, so I'm not horribly disappointed, but at the same time I didn't want to see Mike Bell walking all over us. I expect our secondary to struggle at times this year, but if our front seven struggles to stop the run as well we're going to have problems.
