Big big win.

Ugly but the team needs to know they can win these type of games.

Defense again!

Tandy made up 5 yards and bit hard but is the reason why we won!

8-5

First 5 game win streak since 2002

3-1 in the division

Who imagined this after the Atlanta game? Laughing

Good teams find a way to win. Great job by the defense. I didn't mind the 3rd down call by Koetter, but he really didn't call a great game. Cam Jordan is a beast, total respect for him.

A good team win. I think they now lead the league in safeties allowed. Very Happy

Mike Smith and that defensive coaching staff has done an amazing job. This defense looked in shambles after the Atlanta game. The secondary is playing terrific.

What started out as an offense having to carry a hapless and lost defense has now flipped on it's own head. This is the best defense in the league right now. Offense is sputtering at the worst possible time. Hopefully we get Humphries back next week because we do not look like an offense that can do any damage in the playoffs. Huff was a waste of space. Sims looked rusty and still has the happy feet.

On to the defense. This one was won on the back end as there was some pass rush but not often and not on big plays. The linebacker and secondary play was huge this game. Kwon is a beast. VH3 is getting comfortable more and more each week. Grimes isn't getting beat deep and is making plays. Keith MFing Tandy though. Game sealing INT's back to back.

Looking ahead (which I hate doing but I can't help it), it's gonna be good momentum playings against the Cowboys next week and assuming the playoff picture doesn't change, we could be playing against a Stafford-less Detroit team.

5 in a row. BAMF.[/u]

Play calling was F+ worthy. DK was terrible for most of the game and Winston did just enough to get by. Defense won us this game again. We need to fix this red zone offense though. Saints had a top 3 offense and we held them to 11 points. Mike Smith did a great job disguising his coverages and big time play by Tandy. Helped cause 2 TOs.

This OL stinks. Gosder got owned in pass pro, Hawley got blown up, and Marpet got destroyed. Fairley was living in the backfield today.

One more major props I forgot to give and it's probably the most important after the defense....

Great job by our special teams again. They are responsible for setting up opportunistic series for our defense all year. Sign Anger to a 7 year extension.

This defense is legit. We have to admit that now. I'll take an ugly win against a division opponent.

Tandy's instincts are absolutely awesome. The way that he breaks on the ball is Ronde Barber-esque. He's looking like a serious playmaker. Conte better stay on the bench when he gets healthy.

At times they ran the ball okay. I was just surprised Koetter didn't call any play action and see if Winston could get Evans over the top especially when Breaux went down. I think Koetter showed he was a rookie head coach that went a little conservative around midfield a bunch tonight.

Luckily, it didn't cost them, hopefully it will be a learning experience for him.

Make him our next Michael Koenen.

Agreed. I'm very anxious to see how we'll face a heavy run team like the Cowboys. The tackling has gotten way better compared to earlier in the year. David, VG3, and Alexander made some good plays in the run game.
