The Green Bay Packers gave the New Orleans Saints every opportunity to win their first game of the season, last Sunday at Lambeau Field. Garrett Hartley’s 48-yard attempt sailed wide right with under 3 minutes to play, and the Packers came away victorious, with the final score reading 28-27. This game is proof that parity is alive and well in the NFL, and that nothing is going to come easy for these two teams, who for the past three seasons had been a perennial power in each of their respected divisions.Here are five things to take from the game:1.) Drew Brees is still picking defenses apartBrees threw for 446 yards, but also attempted 54 passes in the air. If you break that number down, the Saints gained 8.3 yards per attempt. For a team that only accumulated a total of 45 rushing yards, I’d say he not only single handily kept his team in this one, he gave them a chance to win.2.) The Packers are showing their commitment to the run game and it’s starting to pay offMinus the first...

But their poor start was probably more daunting both because the talent on each side of the ball during...
The New Orleans Saints could get it done, now they are off to a 0-4 start. Drew Brees did what he could in this one, the Saints defense just could stop Aaron Rodgers from finding the end-zone 4 times to give the Packers a one point margin if victory over the Saints. This one has to hurt Bress more than the other three losses. Brees threw for 446 yards and had three touchdown passes...
Let's see, where should I start? Worst run defense in the league, pass defense ranks within the last ten teams in the league, only six total team sacks, no running game, numerous mental lapses… bottom line is the New Orleans Saints just aren’t really good right now and things won’t get any easier for them as the season progresses.Coming into the season, I knew the defense...
