did you mean to post this on the saints board?

Funny, no matter where I post, when I post, or the subject, there is always one certainty, my resident stalker is there reading and commenting every time. It's cool, I'm used to having the jealous poors hanging on my every word, one of the perks/curses of growing up very wealthy. Don't worry Phil, I'll acknowledge you if I need a drink poured.

uhh ive been perusing these boards for far longer than your miserable residency here so responding to the tripe you vomit all over the internet isn't outside my daily range of browsing. you're the one farting around on another team's message board to the tune of a thousand posts in about a year erstwhile demanding respect for your awesometacular life

the saints really need a NT for the 3-4, a big fatass to plug up the middle and basically just be someone you can't move or get rid of

in other words, they should sign you

Bunkley has been solid at NT and John Jenkins was a beast of raw talent this preseason and looks like he might take Bunkleys job before end of year!

Here is last years grades, I only showed top 1/3 so you won't find FUA on the list, he was 83rd out of 85 graded! Keep on mind this is NT and DT together, so if it was just a list of NT, his rank would be even higher.

But hey great point, forget the guy that graded in top third of all DT and NTs and the raw talent that played great all preseason, take our cast off that was basically worst ranked of all DTs and that will make your line better! LMFAO! Moron! What's next genius, cut Brees and pick up Clausen!? Lol

Big A, ranked the OL yall played and rank the OL we played.

 

Also your DEF looked horrible in the open field vs a quality OL. The positive your 1st team DEF allowed only one TD and 3 FG's, in the 1st half. (that still equates to 32 points in a full game), I know I know its preseason. 

 

I do think that your DEF will be better,  but I would say finishing 3rd best in the DIV is yall ceiling, injuries, new system and who is on yall schedule will cause Rob Ryan to lose his hair.

 

But I still see you guys making some noise, Brees is that good.  He only needs the DEF to improve slightly to win a few more games compared to last year, BUT......... Our DIV plays tougher teams then we did last year.

so the bench from the worst defense in nfl history is being promoted to the starting ranks & you're happy about that? that makes 2 of us. You sure your a saints fan?

Sent from my ADR910L using CarolinaHuddle mobile app

By bench I think you mean guys that started part time and were full time starters by end of year? Lets look at the last game of season against those mighty Panthers an see who played their best against them:

Wait how can that horrible NT Bunkley grade so well when we obviously need 83rd ranked FUA (according to rocknrolla)? How are 3 of top 4 grades from these horrible bench players against the unstoppable Panthers!? Stupid stats, when will they understand what panther fans say trumps any actual statistical data and becomes fact!?

On look who's worst graded, Will Smith again. Wonder how he ended up worst graded player on Saints for entire season when according to Panthers fans he the best defensive player?

Oline ranks:

Saints Preseason Opponents Oline AVG 17th

23rd Raiders

22nd Dolphins

12th KC

10th Texans

Panthers Preseason Opponents Oline AVG 23rd

30th Bears

25th Steelers

19th Eagles

17th Ravens

So you're saying the fact the Saints defense put up more sacks and a lot more QB pressures than Panthers this preseason had something to do with them facing an average Oline rank of 17th while Panthers faced much easier Olines averaging 23rd. Great point, imagine if they had faced the easier Oline Panthers face how many more sacks and pressures they would have racked up!

what part of 'WORST DEFENSE IN NFL HISTORY' are you having trouble understanding?

Another fact that may be overlooked is the fact Ryan is a pressure type defense with lots of blitzes just like GW with blitzing anywhere from 45% to 60% of the plays. In this preseason, the Saint D ran 17 blitzes total! That's 3, 5, 6, and 3 blitz plays in each of the 4 games for a blitz rate around 7%.

So basically a defense that is built around blitzing more than half of the time spend 93% of the snaps sitting back and playing in base packages. That's basically the defense Spags tried to implement last year that failed, yet they did pretty well this preseason and should be much better with more blitzing.
