Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

I think some of us may be underestimating the job he's doing, I thought this was a good read:

Blache talks about keeping a lot of things basic but apparently he's pretty cunning. Excellent job by the secondary today. Good article.

Good article.

I was doubting Blache, but he's done a great job so far.

Springs doesn't lack on confidence. He should be, when healthy he's one of the best in the game.

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..
Golston continues to impress the heck outta me.

Montgomery on the other hand seems to be in a rut. He needs to get it in gear.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Blache has been pretyt impressive. The defense hasn't given up more than 17 points yet this season, turnovers are up, penalties are down.. Anyone else notice that Leigh Torrance has stepped his game up this year? He was a liability last year, but he's in the right places so far in '08.

Too soon to say I told you so, but I've been saying since February we wouldn't miss Grilliams as much as most people thought we would.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

good article. i did notice that horton had replaced doughty in the line-up late in the game. but i didn't realize blache benched doughty RIGHT after that blown coverage on the fitzgerald td. great move by blache.

i was undecided about whether horton should be made the starter after last weeks game. i am undecided no more. horton is the better player.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

To give up 17 points in back to back weeks to a couple of pretty high powered offenses is pretty impressive. And the Giants 'O' is no slouch either. The 'D' under Blache appears to be in good hands.

Re: Tip of the hat to Greg Blache

Good Article! Thanks for posting that! And I like the move about benching Doughty after he screwed up. Its kind of dissapointing. He played much better last year. But right now Horton is cleary better.

They also got put in a bad situation on the ARE fumble. Blache is doing a great job so far. I honestly thought the defense would play worse than it has cause of the loss of #21. But so far so good. Next week is the real test.

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?
