Im watching and trying to pick weaknesses out in this team.
The d line from the very start has not been able to plug any holes on running downs from the beginning of the game. Vilma and the linebackers have had to dig in and they havent been able to contain Barber for min. yardage. Watching video close-ups of the defense, they looked gassed in the first quarter. Vilma, I predict isnt going to be able to plug those holes all game, and because of this run game opened up by Dallas so early, the pass has been effective with a touchdown pass.
I see the demise of the Saints perfect season.
With the mishaps by the NO offense, I see a tired defense and if Dallas continues to try to run the ball, they will be able to run the ball, and will win this game. Dallas' D is fresh, Romo is carrying the offense w/o misstakes.
There needs to be pressure put on this Saints D by screens, draws and delays. That will open up their whole defense and keep the Dline running, and guessing.
