oh i know that. i saw a comment some saints fan made that they were switching to a 34 because of cam and the other QBs in the NFCS, but i remembered that he has done well against them and it just got me wondering about how well he does.

I think our OLINE has more at blame facing 34 than does Cam

They are going to a 3-4 because their 4-3 was never that great and it was terrible last fall. They have a lot of pressure to fix it and changing things up to see if you can get better results makes sense. Doesn't mean it will work but it makes sense. Wonder how much they have for free agents and in dead cap space by releasing veterans who don't fit the scheme.

yeah, the reason for changing isn't all that important to me. it will be interesting to see what kind of finagling they'll have to do to make it happen. they've got more of a cap mess than we do.

18.9 passes completed

31.1 passes attempted

269.5 yards passing

60.64% completions

1.63 TD

.63 INT

97.7 Rating

7.5 Rush Attempts

40.38 Rushing Yards

.5 Rushing TD

Wouldn't surprise me if it's for the sake of image as much as anything.

Gotta do something after you just fielded the worst defense in history, right?

Add in that Payton's probably arrogant enough to believe he could win games even if the Saints only sent six defenders out on the field, so he probably isn't tied to a particular system.

I think if you looked up "arrogant prick" in the dictionary, it would list him as their god.

Well without looking I know Cam has an 88-89ish career QB rating. So at a glance it seems he does better by a decent margin against 3-4 defenses. From a pure numbers perspective of course.
