If Carr is not hopping around, then we lose. They don’t have a great OL. We don’t have a great secondary. If Barry can’t win this matchup, which is almost exactly what his scheme is designed for without Kamara, then we probably need to accept that Barry is a lead weight that must be cut loose.

Hill has been part of an offense managing 18 points a game despite large WR numbers. I get that Hill is fun, but let’s not create excuses for the D for which there isn’t much precedent in terms of production.

Miller has some wiggle, he’s got decent hands and has burst, but his long speed isn’t his thing and he’s not Jones’ elusive. He’s also coming off a hammy and is not likely their lead true RB. Their run game has been worse than ours last week if you exclude Hill’s yards. If Miller beats us, we are in deep trouble. Again, let’s not create non existent excuses.

This is a team that beats us in the air with a little help from trick plays with Hill maybe and from stifling our O or goes away losing. It’s as straight forward as that.

I do agree with you on the intermediate crossers. They’ve not played effective offenses but they have played even then with a weak zone between front and safeties. Reed/Musgrave/Wicks and Watson if he plays all thrive in those areas and should, If we call smartly. Our O should actually match up well in that respect.

Our other strength is speed against their D generally, as with many veteran teams. They play fast rather than having great speed on the secondary. We can use screens as a decoy: they do as you say, diagnose them fast and stream to them: enough to create opportunities if LaFleur is smart. This is a game where we have to be both disciplined and imaginative.

I’m surprised that you didn’t mention the run issue that their D has or their issues on the OL in terms of run blocking and pass blocking. They haven’t been very good at either, particularly away from LT. The young, disruptive players on the DL that were a liability last week should be heroes this week along with our OLBs. They are much more of a rush challenge on paper than the Saints have faced.

They can be run on. If Dillon doesn’t cut it, even if Jones plays, it’s time to let Wilson loose and see, however, if Dillon stays upright, this might be his best chance to turn his season.
