Hey, Saints fans! Welcome back to the Gifs from the Game series where we look at notable and interesting clips from Saints games. In case you missed it, check out these gifs from the game against the Texans last week. Game 4 against the Packers was the Saints final preseason game, in which they closed with their fourth straight loss.
Tackles Andrus Peat and Nick Becton saw the most snaps on offense (61), while Luke McCown, Edwin Baker, and Mike Golic rounded out the bottom with a combined 30 snaps. On defense, Jerry Franklin, Stanley Jean-Baptiste, and Brian Dixon each saw 68 snaps, while Sammy Seamster (4), Parys Haralson (11), Davis Tull (12), and Henry Coley (17) got the least playing time.
No projected starters on either side of the ball played in this game, as expected (Except, Kyle Wilson did play and may possibly start week 1...)
While the preseason has mercifully concluded, this final match was merciless. The Saints 3rd/4th stringers played sloppy ball and conceded approximately 150,000 yards in the second half leading to their demise, 38-10. I was really scraping the bottom of the $%&# barrel for good gifs on this one.
In this post, there's all the Snead you'll need, Marcus Murphy dodging ducking dipping & dodging, Brian Dixon doing things that Brian Dixon does, Bobby Richardson and Tyeler Davison looking beastly, Davis Tull in action, a few nice Grayson plays and more!
The roster is set and we're less than a week away from week 1 action against Arizona! Let's bury the preseason.
