A thought on building a title team

32 posts in this topic

While watching the Saints/Lions game tonight, these are some of the finest offenses I've ever seen. I've seen them both a lot this season. Stafford is absolutely unreal, Brees just the same. They have weapons all over the board. But this is no way to win a title. As it stands neither of these teams are going to be able to do it.

It might be fun to watch, but it's pinball offense. You have to be able to win that type of game if it's out there; but at the same time, you need to be able to slug it out.... make big stops... not give up 600 yards of offense or 400 through the air like the Saints did tonight even in winning. Their defense just gives up too many chunks to get to the top--we'll see in time if I'm right.

Think about the greatest show on turf Rams of 1999. They were a great offense. Could outscore you. But if they had to, they could strap it on and beat your asses in a slugfest--as evidenced by that Superbowl they won that year AND the NFC Championship game against the Bucs to get there. They were a complete team that could beat you at your style of game.

That said, we have a Cadillac offense. But it's not entirely predicated on the pass. We can beat you between the tackles, and I think in time Cam is going to be involved in and win shootouts in the new NFL that sometimes calls for that.

The only thing we're missing is the defense to be able to slug it out. Neither New Orleans or Detroit has that. People will point to Green Bay last year--they're an exception to the rule.

I want to build a sledgehammer defense--starting with this draft and free agency. If we have that, we're going to have almost a complete puzzle team that can beat you in any type of game you want to play.

This Saints team; they advance tonight. But lets be honest.. One possession if they need a stop to close out a game, they would come up short....

I keep thinking about guys like Devon Still from Penn State and Dre Kirkpatrick; God I wish we had two 1st round picks! We could play catch-up in the talent gap so quickly....

#1 - Devon Still DT Penn State (Beast)

#2 - Sean Spence OLB Miami (Thomas Davis 2.0)

#4 - Casey Hayward CB Vanderbilt (Play maker & steal)

#5 - Brandon Mosley OT Auburn (Not Otah)

#6 - Shaun Powell P Florida State (Baker is bad)

#7 - D''Anton Lynn CB Penn State (Not Martin)

Superbowl.

I said big name, but I expect a poster like you to take it out of context. :beatdeadhorse5:

the patriots , saints , and green bay all have mediocre defenses. one of these three teams will probably win the superbowl.

The new NFL is score, score, score, score...the packers won last year with that mentality. The defense does not need to be a top ranked shutdown unit, but must be able to force turnovers, like the Saints did tonight.

But the important thing right now is that the offense and Cam keep developing, thats the only way we can compete with our division.

The Packers D was pretty good last year. Plus their running game(Starks) appeared from nowhere last year, which was a big reason why they won.

I agree with you 100% Their defense is too weak to win the SB...

Our defense is a couple of players from being good enough to make the playoffs... & once you are in you have a chance.(unless you are Denver)

    • @Panthro Proving Medical Malpractice Based on Diagnostic Errors The law does not hold doctors legally responsible for all diagnostic errors. Instead, patients usually must prove three things in order to prevail in a medical malpractice lawsuit based on a wrong diagnosis: A doctor-patient relationship existed. The doctor was negligent -- that is, did not provide treatment in a reasonably skillful and competent manner. The doctor's negligence caused actual injury to the patient. Most medical malpractice cases hinge on either the second or third element (or both) -- was the doctor negligent and did that negligence harm the patient?   Easily provable  1. ER dr saw mom and had all the records. Mom was healthy prior, no issues besides a murmur she was born with. 2. Motrin does dot fix the flu especially if you one has A and B. Greenville drs from ICU would testify against New Bern ER doc. No tamiflu prescribed nor any other treatment besides Motrin. (Anybody can take Tylenol/asprin but tamiflu is prescribed) 3. Without x raying or running further test, mom went from early caught flu to both pneumonia that now developed 3rd stage ARDS and now pulmonary fibrosis is setting in. Due this negligence, mom will live at most 5 years in poor quality will my dad ends bankrupt. I just proved how not properly treating mom has lead to a snowball effect due to incompetence which lead to where we are now. Dad was not given a course of action, he does not have a M.D. at the end of his name, and the hippocratic oath has been tarnished. I am in the settle or I will find out how he will lose his license. I will file a complaint with the hospital and board. Publish in the newspaper about his care and online. My mom will never be the same.
