Of course they know they need TDs, it was mentioned that Rivera said it before the NO game several times. It is the players not making plays to put us in that situation. Newton should not be taking sacks at that point. He has to be decisive and get the ball out. There were a lot of times last week that he was very late with the ball giving the DBs time to react. Unlike Brees who was throwing the ball before the receivers were out of their breaks. No it wasn't all his fault but he played poorly for sure.
Our Wr's were not getting separation well either. So that combined with the pressure got Cam rattled. I wanted Cam to be more decisive at just taking off. Gashing a team with a few big runs from him tends to shake up their whole defense. With our oline we should not be sticking him back there like a statue ala Eli Manning. We need to move the pocket more so the defense can't just pin there ears back and aim for the same spot all game long.
