    You got the best running back in the NFL and he touches it once during their last drive.

    Yes Dallas was blitzing. But we had the ball on the 7 with timeouts. We should have brought in 2 TE with Neal at FB and at least try to power our way into the endzone. We did it on our 1st scoring drive so I'm pretty confident that witch 4 cracks, we could have gained 8 yards on the ground.

    The coaches will learn from this last game. Look for LT to get 25-30 carries this week at Denver.

    Blitz or not, if you hand the ball off you can beat a blitz some times. Think about corner blitzes, where do they go? The blitz side end will flare OUT a little to make sure the tackle picks him up, the corner then comes in off the butt of that end.... Know what that make? A hole between the tackle and end (defensively) or between the Guard and Tackle (offensively) however you look at it.

    Blitzing doesn't stop the run. Throwing keeps the blitz coming.

    Very true Bas. Brees was under huge pressure. A pitchout or a draw to LT would have caught them by suprise especially on 3rd down.

    I'm sayin!!! And, have any of you ever played football? A pass rush is COMPLETELY different than run coverage. In a pass rush you are trying to get penetration, in run coverage you are filling gaps, trying to hold the line.... A blitz some times puts that "Pass Rush" thought on the blitzing player and often they forget to break down and cover the run. Thusly, they fly right by the running back and look like fools when it is shown on Sports Center the next day.

    Exactly. Dallas knew we were going to pass. That's why they went balls out on the blitz. The Palycalling by Cam Cameron was totally predictable. I would have rather ran the ball 4 times than throw 4 times from the 7. With our line, we could have gained 7 or 8 yards easily.
