11/10pass240.00.50.50.04quick pass and Liuget already getting his hands up, smart

.

2/4run340.00.50.5guys have to be ready, this could have been worse.

.

3/2pass240.00.50.00.54Liuget fighting hard already

.

1/15pass240.50.00.50.05Great defense by Jammer. Don't know why he softened up later...

.

3/14pass145Screen gets read and blown up immediately by Lynch, nice play

.

21/10run341.01.00.5Heavy package! Love how these guys fight. Reyes delaying the run with his push, Franklin coming down for the stop (figure 1)

.

2/9pass240.50.00.00.05nice blitz design, Spikes drops right back into the hot zone and takes away option 1. But Brees is no Cassel...

.

3/5pass240.00.50.00.00.05really? no one could get Brees?

.

1/10run340.50.00.0Franklin moved out of his lane...

.

2/4pass240.00.00.00.05no one gets pressure, but bad throw saves a big play

.

3/4pass240.00.00.00.04goofy old-school zone blitz. Vaughn Martin drops into zone coverage(L1 zone) should have sent Bigby blitzing (figure 2)

.

1/10pass345quick pass, no grade

.

2/10pass240.00.00.50.55talk about delayed blitz. Too slow, Bigby.

.

3/5pass240.51.51.00.00.55Reyes with the well executed stunt, Thomas needed to step in about 3 more inches and this is a sack. CC confuses Butler with Spikes

.

41/10run241.50.5Great job by Gilchrist. I think this kid could be a safety if he wanted to. Very physical.

.

2/11pass240.00.00.50.00.06House blitz. soft coverage. what do you expect?

.

3/4pass240.00.00.00.05slow developing blitz again. These don't work well against quick strike offenses...
