Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Interesting article, even more interesting is that Doughty was benched in favor of Horton due to mistakes he made. I wonder if Doughty has permanently lost his job.


Love this quote:

Quote:
"After Dallas and Philly, people are going to have to start talking about us," Springs said. Saints quarterback Drew Brees "was number two in passer rating, and he left not in the top 10. Kurt Warner came in in the top two in passer rating. I don't know what he's leaving with, but after 200 yards, a pick and a couple of sacks, I don't think it'll be too good."

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Blache reminds me of Petibon. Petibon never had stifling defenses - good to very good defenses, but none that were dominant. Like Petibon, Blache doesn't seem concerned about how his defense is percieved ("their to reactionary" "they don't attack enough" ) but is more interested in developing an effective scheme against the strengths of the team he is playing. In this past game, he pretty much gave up the run and attacked Arizona's passing scheme.

It will be interesting to see what his plan is for Dallas, as they seem to me to be a much more balanced team than Arizona.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Blache definitely has the defense in tune with who they are facing. He's limited the damage, so the offense can do their thing. Two weeks in a row, the Skins D has stopped high powered offenses (the Saints did put up 32 against a shotty Broncos D last night). Can he make it 3 in a row?

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

The defense is much, much better than I thought it would be. Is it dominant? No, but it's pretty good. I'm not 100% sold on Blache yet, but so far so good.

He needs to be a clear dominant DT like Dorsey was for us to take him, if we cant find a DT like that, we shouldnt draft one in the first 2 rounds..
Listen, I like these guys but they are far too inconsistent. Golston had a sack yesterday but he gets lost in the run game at times. Remember Griffin in the '04 and '05 seasons? He was a guy that teams had to game plan against- unfortunately injuries and age have caught up to him. All I was saying is we need one elite tackle. A guy like that can work wonders for your entire D. And I agree a Glenn Dorsey type would be great.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

What I really liked about this game was his commitment to stop the pass, even though he's known as a stop the run guy first. Kudos to keeping the coverage hidden well and committing Springs to shut down Boldin. And kudos to the FO for the Horton pick! Credit where credit is due!

We're not a lights out D, but we play ball. We use our personnel well and mix things up. And we've adjusted well when we've needed to so far.

Now, Dallas is going to be a different kettle of fish, especially on the road. But the signs from our D so far have been encouraging. Blache has kept enough continuity with GW's D, but he's brought his own more basic signature, which I like. Good job, coach.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Goldston had a good game yesterday and I expect him to get better as the season progresses.

But, we do need a strong push up the middle to make it easier for the blitzes if we are to take advantage of our speed at DE.

I want another patented G Blache quote. At the end of the season, we will vote on the top ten G Blache quotes. He coached a great game yesterday. Great job defense!!!

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Much better job by Blache over the last two weeks disguising the D and bringing different looks. Week 1 was ridiculously vanilla, but weeks 2-3 have been much better. From the article, ""We repped that the whole week in practice, giving them different looks to keep the quarterback guessing," free safety LaRon Landry said, "so they can't get in a rhythm seeing the same thing over and over."

Blache has his work cut out for him this week against a very talented Cowboys team. We're improving each week IMO, so far, so good.

Good article from JLC, much better than most of his recent stuff, maybe he's trying to step up his game too.
