What we learned Saints/Packers
I thought we should discuss our bext 2 opponents after seeing them play last night, I walked away both excited and discouraged.
1. The Packers are Dominant
The Packers looked unstoppable against a good team on both offense and defense and the Bears are going to need to execute to have a shot.
2. Running on the Packers is not easy.
Raji and Picket continued to dominate and routinely blew up Nicks and Evand who are considered the best OGs in football.
3. The Saints OL is not as good as advertised.
RT Zach Strief could not pass block at all and the line in general could not get a pucsh. This bodes well for a Bears team with a strong pass rush.
4. The Saints DL did nothing
The Saints DL did not generate any pressure and could not stop the run to save their lives. Shaun Rogers and Abrayu Franklin looked like shadows of themselves and without Will Smith they had 0 pass rush.
5. Drew Brees will kill you when he is not pressured.
I believe the only thing that matters next week is getting Peppers, Melton and Idonidje to the QB.
