I felt like the defense; while decent; was vanilla too. The pressure was there on Freeman from the front four at times, but there were no exotic or creative blitzes.
We didn't give up a lot of points b/c Schiano didn't try to score alot of points. He got a lead, and went safe ball control style offense.
A better, more aggressive offense will have an easier time putting up points against us I think if we only are rushing four 80% of the game or 90% of the game like today.
Brees and Eli will need to see something that is a bit wackier. And it goes without saying that Cam and the offense will need to be ready to score and score and score.
I'm glad that we're at home the next two weeks.
Exactly. Schiano didn't tried to out score us big. He managed the game helding a lead the whole entire game by running the ball with a rookie rb to force Cam on the sideline.
And then people go back and look at the stats and say: oh our defense only gave up so and so. They did great. I say, just wait till a high power offense led by a scare face man named Drew Bress come to town next week and we'll see how good this defense led by RR is.
RR is playing vanilla "soft" D.
