Well, that Texans game was a bit on the ugly side. However, brother Jon is here to tell you that there is a tomorrow! The good news is that it is only a preseason game, which you could tell by the lack of blitzing and lack of creative plays/scheming. As well, the two teams play each other again in about a month, so no one wants to show their cards, so to speak.
The bad news: poor pass protection and tackling was a problem last year as well. Hopefully, the Saints get all those kinks worked out in California this week. So in summary: #wegotthis (credit to Grandmaster Wang)
Until then, are you ready for some roundup? It's a good one this week. Since every NFC South team lost, there's no optimism anywhere to be found! And you know what they say about misery. So make the jump to see what happened to those other teams we love to hate so much.Panthers News:
