Film Analysis Saints versus Bucs Part 1 – Saints making little mistakes that cost them dearly
Tried to get as much in as I can before the Saints play the Panthers on Sunday. Will continue analysis in next part. Some eye opening information here.
First Quarter – Series 1 Offense
Cooks 8 yards – Unusual formation along offensive line of scrimmage; Peat throws down a defender
Cooks loss 4 yards – Bad blocking by Watson seals the fate of this play
Offsides by Khiry Robinson
Coleman 22 yards – Beautiful pass between two defenders
Ingram no gain – Why not run right? Lelito gets turned around; Austin Johnson does not create a hole; Armstead does not fully engage
Spiller 19 yards – Jahri gets McCoy on the ground
(Jahri gets McCoy on ground)
Austin Johnson incomplete pass – Dropped by Johnson
CJ Spiller no gain – Well designed play but Unger dives at feet of defender (which he did at lot in Seattle) and Clint McDonald jumps over him to stop Spiller
Snead incomplete – Brees stares Snead down; very well covered; misses an open Colston.
First Quarter – Series 1 Defense
Doug Martin – 2 yards
Doug Martin – 3 yards Great tackle by John Jenkins despite being double teamed.
(Think this is a missed facemask)
Seferian-Jenkins – 21 yards Like the pressure off of both ends by Gwacham and Kikaha and secondary is not in a bad position by leaping grab by Jenkins
Doug Martin – 20 yards Missed tackle by Stephone Anthony
Doug Martin – 1 yard Kikaha gets away from lineman and makes the tackle while trying the strip the ball
Jameis Winston – 2 yards Good secondary coverage No where for Winston to throw
J Winston – Incomplete pass Pressure off of both ends by Gwacham and Kikaha; Gwacham forces the incompletion
First Quarter – Series 2 Offense
Ingram – 5 yards Squeezing through hole set by Johnson
Brees – Incomplete pass Watson and Evans let defenders through but penalty on TB gives Saints first down
Spiller – No gain Bad blocking nullifies Strief’s effectiveness and ends play
Cooks – 6 yards Good protection for Drew
What am I seeing thus far? All is takes is one player to make a mistake, and the other team will capitalize. We are making mistakes.
