Everyone Seems Overly Concerned



Last time I checked, an ugly win gets a W in the W-L columns, and a pretty win gets the same thing.  The Saints are fine.  Every good team goes through this and the strong ones prevail as we did. The weaker teams, especially at home, play their best games to stay competitive.  They have to!!  The Rams had 2 solid weeks off with loads of game tape and a lot of motivation. I think they are relatively healthy now.  They have, agruably, the best or second best RB in the league.  And, the absolutely biggest factor in this game and our last couple of games is our defensive injuries. Clancy, Greer, Sharper, Ellis.  Four starters that are very important. Add in that Fujita played his first game in 3 games and was probably rusty and not used to playing with some new faces, and it is small wonder our defense didn't have its best day. They worked Jenkins in there also and he is a work in progress (showing great potential)  But the defense with all of this going on played good enough to win.

I also think GW played pretty "vanilla - style defense"  and I think that's because 1)  he held back from some risky blitzes etc because of personnel (INJURY) issues and 2) he is holding back for The Patriots game.  That's just my take on it.  I would have liked a bigger margin of victory, but I am happy- everyone is gunning for US every week. Blowouts won't be easy- we'll have to settle for W's.    W's are good, very good.
