Saints vs. Panthers: Gifs from the Game

Check out these clips from the Saints week 3 game against Carolina.

Hey, Saints fans! Welcome back to the Gifs from the Game series where we look at notable and interesting clips from Saints games. This week, the Saints traveled to Charlotte where they faced Mike Tolbert and some smaller guys.

The major stat for this game? Luke McCown was 31/38 (81.6%) for 310 yards and a pick. He played well all things considered, but though Brees is similarly liable for a pick every game these days, I'm inclined to think he would have thrown a couple TDs. The other stat to highlight here - despite conceding 88 yards on 10 penalties at home, the Panthers still managed to beat the Saints.

For this game, we have some Breaux show and plenty of fellow rookie CB Damian Swann. A couple plays by Kikaha and a nice, promising look from Clifford Spiller. Of course, there's also that play where Greg Olsen went completely unmanned, and one where Browner totally overreacts to the read option. Oh, yeah, Marcus Murphy's return.

1. Stephone Anthony sniffed that one out in a hurry


2. Josh Hill with a little shake, not much bake


3. Luke to Watson. Niiiice.


4. Ingram. Dude. Pound forward for those yards

//You aren't winning any shimmy contests


5. Nice run, Mark

//And check out those blocks thrown by Max Unger and Senio Kelemete


6. Bobby Richardson ends this nonsense


7. 2013 form tackling by Kenny Vaccaro

//Dennis Allen's basic tackling drills seem to have had some impact


8. Browner giving his man like a 7 yard buffer

//Outcome? First down, Panthers.


9. Greg Olsen is WIDE OPEN

10. McCown hits Watson again a yard shy of first


11. Swann and Anthony on the stuff

12. Breaux is practically conjoined with speedy Ted Ginn Jr. in coverage


13. Cam Jordan pwns


14. Swann with hermetic coverage on Greg Olsen


15. Kikaha sack

//Coverage sack at that. Would love to see a more effective (or any) pass rush


16. This one really just speaks for itself


17. Rookie Swann all over rookie Funchess


18. Ouch


19. Browner is looking for Kenny Phillips' lenses


20. Colston with a nice grab
