Well, we took away Gresham and Bernard this week. I do agree Graham and Sproles are a notch above as is Brees a lot better than Dalton.
Considering you have no AJ Green, we have Talib on Colston, BB will funnel his coverage inside to take away the seams. They'll jam Graham with LBs in the red zone in man.
I am somewhat chuckling at you acting like Bill Belichick won't be able to draw up schemes he can rotate to slow your offense down. He has the most tools to do that in years.
As for Will Smith, who are you kidding? He was kicking outside to 3-4 OLB and he got hurt. It's a big reason why Ryan can't run much of it now. He doesn't have the length at 3-4 OLB.
Sorry, you sounded like a teenager with your first post but good job being a loyal fan for so long. I like your organization, actually. Overall, a class operation and it was fun watching you win that SB. The fans and city deserved it.
^^^ see my post above for possible gameplan ^^^^^
Wrong! Will Smith was getting eat up at 3-4 OLB. His limited success came when they shifted into the 4-3 and he got to come in off a single blocker with Cam Jordan getriing doubled on the other side.
His absence has no affect on the alignment percentages. The 3-4 has been holding the opposing offenses early downs to short yardage allowing them to shift top the four man front to pressure the QB without the blitz. The Saints sacks are coming from base defense primarily, not from the blitz.
I have watch every snap of Will Smith's career and have loved that career, but it was over. He was shot. It was sad to watch him out there with those athletic kids running circles around him.
