Week 2 - Pass The Ball!!
Until Sean Payton realizes he has an offense designed to be a passing team and becomes aggressive in the passing game they will continue to give games away. This an era where a team can have an undefeated regular season without putting much emphasis on the run. He keeps trying to force his talent to do things that they are not built to do. We can pass early in the year to set up the run later. Instead we play into the defense's hands by forcing the run game and short passes when there are 8 people in the box almost every play. We should be punishing teams for playing that many people close to the line of scrimmage.
Sean, your offensive line can't run block. I know it's only the second game but they are not going to get any better unless you have a back like Deuce he can run so direct through a hole they don't need to do much. It's time to let the play makers go down the field and make plays.
And we have to find a set of plays that can get us a first down when we need one. We should be 2-0 but we could easily be 0-2 because we keep giving the ball back to the other team.
