    Coverage has been fair. Slanted towards NO because of the Katrina and all that....

    You both are insensitive bastards…you still have 13 years, 8 months, 7 days and 49 minutes before it will be fashionable for the nation to be over Katrina.:icon_twisted:

    All Katrina bs aside, I'm really glad we got to play NO tonight. Very good barometer to gauge where our starters are @ vs a great team. So far, our O has looked very good, the pass D could be better, but seriously, I think they're doing a fairly decent job against a super high powered O. First td was a lucky bounce, 2nd was just a great presnap read by Brees and a good audible.

    I sure hope the Bolt defense can get a bit more nasty than what I've seen tonight.

    Our offense has looked out of sync. Time to make something happen.

    This is the problem with not having McNeill. We run too many long developing plays down field to have subpar pass blocking.

    Matthews can catch. One question answered. Now, where is Tolbert?

    A little early hit there. Where was the flag on that?
    The DB definatley hit him before he got the ball. Thats why he went out.

    that screen pass to Mathews was about a duck, but he still came up with it catching it over his head. I Likes.

    Our run game needs to come back to life in this half.

    Makes me wonder why Norv decided to punt on 4th and short.:unsure: Kind of a lame way for Rivers to leave the game.

    Not liking what I'm seeing from the second team defense this time, first example where they're just getting steam rolled
