When Greg Cosell breaks down film, I listen. He can be found on Sirius, Yahoo, and others. Here is his thoughts on The Saints D (Pay Attention Cam Newton owners):
“What they faced with Washington — and they face Carolina this week, so they may see a lot of the same things — was the way the Redskins started with all the shotgun/Pistol/read option. This was all clearly planned. They had five wide receiver screens on the first series. So New Orleans’ linebackers — and by the way, Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne didn’t play a lot in the preseason — were clearly reacting. They weren’t proactive at all, because there was so much backfield action going on, and everything was happening quickly. The Panthers could say, ‘You know what? Let’s see how they react this week to the same type of stuff.’”
