Scouting The Saints

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 14, 2011 – 7:47 am

The Vikings return to Mall of America Field this weekend to take on a red-hot New Orleans Saints squad, which has won its past five games and sits atop the NFC South standings. The Vikings come in having lost their last 5 games, and with 8 of their 11 losses this season having come by 7 points or fewer.

The Vikings and Saints play in different divisions within the NFC, but including this weekend’s matchup they’ve met annually over the past four seasons and their battles have been dramatic. The Vikings out-dueled New Orleans on Monday Night Football in 2008, the Saints got past the Vikings in overtime of the 2009 NFC title game and then the two teams met in prime time to open the 2010 regular season.

This week’s game will kickoff at noon CT on Sunday, and the Vikings will have to play one of their best games of the season if there’s to be any drama at the end of this game. Let’s go over a few quick, general things to know about this year’s Saints squad…

– The Saints boast a fast, physical group of playmakers on defense, but there’s no mistaking the bread and butter of this outfit – it’s an explosive offense that is led by Drew Brees, one of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks. Brees is having perhaps the best season of his career, as he leads the NFL with 4,368 passing yards and boasts a squeaky-clean 32-11 TD-INT ratio. Only two QBs – Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady – have a higher passer rating than Brees’ 105.9 and no QB is completing a higher percentage of his passes than Brees (71.0%).

– Brees’ individual success has led to big numbers for the entire offense. The Saints rank second in the NFL in scoring (31.9 points per game) and first in both total offense (447.8 yards per game) and passing offense (325.2 passing yards per game). New Orleans ranks first in total 1st downs (321), passing 1st downs (217) and 3rd-down conversion percentage (53.7%). Only the Green Bay Packers have a more efficient scoring offense than the Saints, as New Orleans ranks 2nd in both overall scoring efficiency (score on 49.7% of drives) and TD scoring efficiency (score a TD on 31.5% of drives).

– The Saints boast several runners and receivers capable of making plays. Illustrating the versatility of the Saints offense is the fact that the top two receivers in the offense are a TE and a RB. TE Jimmy Graham (80 receptions) and RB Darren Sproles (74 receptions) are the leading receivers and must be accounted for on every snap. Graham leads the club in receiving TDs with 8, while no other player has more than 6 receiving TDs but 6 players have more than 2. The leading WR on the team is Marques Colston, who has 58 receptions for 826 yards and 5 TDs. After Graham, Sproles and Colston, the Saints boast talented pass catchers such as Lance Moore (45 receptions), Robert Meachem (33 receptions) and Devery Henderson (26 receptions).

– Defensively, New Orleans isn’t as prolific. But the Saints do boast several playmakers on defense. We’ll start with the front 7, where DE Will Smith is tied for the team lead in sacks with 6.5. An impact player on the Saints defense who has been a team captain the past 4 years, Smith has 61.5 career sacks and 17 forced fumbles. He is a force both against the run and the pass, and while teams double-team him on many snaps it doesn’t stop him from being a disruptive force. The Saints list DE Turk McBride, NT Aubrayo Franklin and DT Sedrick Ellis as the other 3 starters along the line, but DE Cameron Jordan (Steve Jordan’s son), NT Shaun Rogers and DT Tom Johnson are also steady contributors.

– At the second level of the defense, New Orleans features talented middle LB Jonathan Vilma. A force against the run and the pass, Vilma has been a defensive captain the past 2 years and has led the Saints in tackles the past 3 seasons. On either side of him at LB are a combination of Jo-Lonn Dunbar, Will Herring and Scott Shanle.

– In the secondary, the Saints are solid and deep. Jabari Greer and Tracy Porter are the starting CBs and have combined for 25 passes defensed, 2 INTs and 2 forced fumbles. Roman Harper and Michael Jenkins are the starting safeties. Jenkins is a converted CB who now roams the defense as a safety and is reliable in coverage. Harper ranks among the leaders in tackles this year and he’s tied with Will Smith for the team lead in sacks with 6.5.

– The Saints rank 2nd in scoring offense, and that’s a good thing because their defense ranks just 17th in giving up 22.0 points per game. Only 2 teams allow more passing yards per game (268.0) than the Saints and only 3 teams yield more yards per rush than the Saints (4.9).

– To make up for yardage allowed, the Saints are good on 3rd down. Opponents are converting just 33.1% of their 3rd downs, which is 6th best in the NFL.

We’ll have much more on the Vikings-Saints matchup as the week continues, so stay tuned to vikings.com for comprehensive coverage of your favorite team.

    Once more we Viking fans must wait one more year to see if the Vikings will get to and win a SB. Where is the team that made it to the SB, and their type of players? Is our glory day back in the 1960′s when the Vikings played in the old met.? How interesting it is that the Vikings have never been to the SB while playing in that s-t-i-n-k hole dome.

    Have a great day, everyone.

    Unfortunately for us we are one 1 of the 2 teams that gives up more passing yards than the Saints. Defensively they make up for it with Corners that can catch the ball and don’t have hands of Stone. Judging by our history this season – Sproles will be all over and Graham will as well. But Remember the Saints play worse on the road than at home – case in point the Rams beat them at home. Brees scores 1.5 fewer TD’s on the road this season. SKOL VIKES!!

    @Titus,

    If Spielman is the “defacto general manager” then we might a s s u m e that he is responsible for ALL draft picks, trades, free agency, etc.

    There is nothing more important than the level of talent on the field, and IT is missing at many positions.

    Yes, he made some good decisions in obtaining Peterson, and Harvin. But he also selected Rudolph and Gerhart, which were unnecessary picks. They should have been DBs or OLs. And the handling of Moss, and Rice was poor, at best!!!

    @Viking33,

    I am glad you said that the Rams beat the Saints. The Vikings are probably comparable to the Rams in talent.

    We can win, we could have won a lot of games this year – but didn’t. We have found a lot of ways to lose – interceptions – fumbles – blown coverages – poor run defense – no pa ss protection – bad coaching desicions – missed FG…..all of that in various games during crunch time in the fourth quarter where someone made a play – ANYONE – we would have won. Until our guys figure this out we will just find another way to lose, however.

    To my fine feathered friends,

    Do not immortalize T.J. Yates. Yes he did have a good game. Did you watch the OFFENSIVE LINE PLAY?

    You and I could have thrown at least one td pass in that game for Houston.

    If the Vikings had their OL, Peterson would never have gotten hurt, and would be over 1300 yards by now. McNabb would still be our QB, and we would be at least 8-8! The DBs would still cost us a few games.

    @ Frederick – I have to agree with you – Brady and Tebow matchup……I don’t buy it. But if the Broncos win, Tebow will become more annoying than ever and if Tebow loses he will become more annoying than ever – it is a no win situation. He is quickly catching up to the nauseating Brady/Bellichick combo….or Rodgers/McCarthy – the difference with Tebow is that he gets all the love and doesn’t have to share it with anyone.

    Houston OL is one of the best in the game and is the strength of the team – no doubt. If Peterson runs behnid that line he may be the only active player in recent history inducted in the HOF! Peterson ran behind the remnants of a great line when he first arrived here….the numbers were off the charts. He is a better player now, and can’t put up that production…..I can only wonder why?

    @Viking33,

    Tebow is good for the game. You are right though, he gets WAY too much press!!!

    QBs do not win games by themselves, football is just a little more complicated than that.

    Webb could be the next Tebow. That would be fun, but I am hoping he is a better p a s s e r!!!

    @Viking33,

    You are right about Peterson. Maybe that is why many bloggers would like to see him traded.

    We should hire a GM if for no other reason there will be someone in charge. Right now a conglomerate of VP’s and Coaches Scouts collectively decide what direction the team goes in. That never works, and Wilf shuold know that because it is the most basic of business practices. We do not have a leader anywhere in this organization – Front office – NO / On the Field – NO / On the Sidellines – NO. We have good players and personnel – but no one who steps up to Truly Lead the Team!

    We are not significantly better than the Saints in any category, but we are significantly worse than them in many. Passing has the Saints at the top of the league with 325 ypg, while the Vikings are dangling near the bottom with 191 ypg. Passing touchdowns has the Saints near the top with 32 while the Vikings boast half that number. And we don’t make up for it in rushing stats. We have only gained 20-yards more than them per game, and were only able to score 2 extra TDs from it.

    Defensively the teams are pretty evenly matched, with the Vikings allowing about 30 yards less per game than the Saints, edging them slightly in both passing and rushing. However, the Saints defense makes up for that by allowing fewer TDs (30 NO – 35 MIN). This includes a league worst 26 passing TDs against the Vikings Defense.

    Overall we are significantly outmatched, and I doubt homefield advantage will make much of a difference for a team that has been losing 85% of its games this year. Although, I’d guess the final score makes the game appear to be a closer battle than it should be, with the Vikings losing 21-17.

    Parody, a realistic and logical breakdown. We all know that anything can happen in the NFL. It would just be nice to win this one– it is not impossible. And with our recent history, there are intangibles you did not mention– a number of our players were in that NFC championship and the close one in 2010 – both where the Saints beat us. I am sure some of our players have an added “will” to want this victory. If we play smart and hard all 4 quarters and the crowd is into the game, we have a shot—–

    @Fredrick Jones, McNabb’s problem wasn’t the line, it was his inability to reach his receivers. His throws were short and inaccurate. The line had nothing to do with that. As for AP, the line didn’t cause him to get hurt, his drive to get more yards did. He was in the secondary when it happened. The line did their job. I agree we have holes in the line, but I don’t think it is as bad as everyone makes it. We need to replace Loadholt, he is McKinney reincarnated, slow, fat, dumb, useless. We need to think about our young rookies (Love and Fusco) and will they fill our need. Focus on the secondary in the draft and pick up a Middle linebacker because I was not impressed with EJ since his return. He seems to be more hesitant and slower.

    Fred– come on. Face reality. I watched plenty of Eagles games as most on here probably did– after all they were in the playoffs most of the 2000′s. Five NFC championship games and often they played the Packers– so I rooted for the Eagles. And the Dallas-Philly games are always entertaining. SO, after watching McNabb as an Eagle for the past decade at least a dozen times, I have to break the news to you— he always had a tendency to throw at the ground and make mistakes when the pressure was on.

    I am right, Fred– I am speaking of the past. Can McNabb still play? Possibly– but he has no fire– and lately, that is what really, really concerns me about Ponder– the kid is starting to walk into press conferences with his head down, eyes down, and making apologies and saying he cannot look vets in the eyes and so hard to look at Allen– the kid is talented, but if he loses his swagger, he is done. Bring in Favre to tutor the kid.

    That is why the Vikings paid McNabb to come in, to shield our young QBs. Did he do it? No, not long enough. But that’s also team.

    Ponder is hurt now, so it’s easy to write him off. If he is as smart as they say he is he will come back.

    The Vikings SHOULD be able to win with Webb or Ponder. They both appear to have what it takes to make it as QBs in the NFL.

    But the team is having problems.

    Fred Jones, man you must have no life to be able to come in here on a daily basis and put so much energy into declaring your want for a GM. Get a new hobby my friend. Try making things with popsicle sticks. Thats a fun activity for a stoopid like you

    To Fredrick Jones, DRS, TITANIUM TITUS, AND THE REST OF THE GREAT BLOGERS ON THE VIKES BLOG:

    Guys you have to address the blogs to the owners; The Wilf Family of Viking owners and VPS. the word is Nepotism, the reason we don’t have a good GM is the Wilf Family thinks that all their relatives should be Vice Presidents and the scouts are friends of the family. they would only hire a GM if he were a yes man without fire in his belly like Leslie Frazier and his cast of mundane coaching staff.
    Maybe if as true Viking fans we got a patition for the Wilfs to hire a GM and presented it in person with say 30,000 to 50,000 signatures on it they might hire a good GM like Jon Grugen, Steve Mariucci, Brian Billick,Denny Green, or Tony Dungy, and one of the remaining names as head coach. then maybe we could rise from the ashes of the 2011 season like a Phoenix from Harry Potters movies rise of the Phoenix.

    @Fredrick Jones and the Host of Fan Blogers:

    We need to Stand united and present a petition to the Wilf Family with a list of Good GM candidates and head coaching candidates to even make them listen to reason you need at least 30,000 to 50,000 names of fans that want change within the organization. then maybe the Wilf Family would really heed the Fans but just Blogging it won’t help but you guys are true Fans just like me Distribute the petition around the stadium during the last homes games and I’ll give you my permission to sign my name to it just let me know in a blog reponse Fredrick, DRS, or Titanium Titus for I am a die hard Vike Fan of 50 years.

    Good to see you back Vikingsfool, thanks for the laughs. Looking forward to the double header this Sunday. Hope we can stay with the Saints but I doubt it, Brees will probably throw for some kind of NFL record. Then we are going to watch a see if the Mile High Messiah can pull off another miracle against the Patriots. Did I mention we could have had Tebow instead of Cook in the draft, yeah I think I did. But what has he ever done, really, right Shawn. Just think of the possibilities, a backfield of A P, Gerhart and Tebow running the ball, it gives me chills just thinking about what might have been. But our offensive coordinator could have never figured out that scenario, and besides our defense isn’t nearly as good as Denver. For as bad as everybody seems to think Ponder is now, how did we manage to get so many points against that Bronco defense. Its probably because their best player was hurt and didn’t play. O well we still have Webb to save us. Peace Out !

    The Saints will Light up the vikings. This game will be over by the 2nd quarter. This has been a very disappointing year. Again, it’s time to clean house. Starting from the top. The vikings can not stay with the Saints. 2-14 here we come!!!

    Do you know how to keep vikings off the grass ???????????

    Paint a rectangle on it and call it the endzone !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey Vikesfan, your boy Brett threw the ball to the wrong team. thats why u dont have a Super Bowl trophy.

    @Canadian VF,

    You are crazy if you think Tebow could pull any of that off with this D.

    @Puckertrucker,

    Steve Mariucci, really that guy led the Lions to so many losing seasons I can’t believe you went there.

    @Vikenasty,

    You’re right Vikes need to draft the entire LSU Secondary next year. Ponder gets rushed but he has still been putting up decent points, and if the Vikes weren’t always playing from behind they could run the rock more. Good point.

    @PBizzle,

    It’s true I know, but if the Vikes ran more it would just give Musgrave more opportunity to get Harvin hurt since he would rather run with him than the best running back in the league. I thought Harvin wasn’t returning kicks so he could be rested for the passing game. So I guess running straight into linebackers is relaxing for him. Guess the Vikes are happy without Harvin returning kicks for TD’s.

    Im surprised that more of you folks on here are not NFL coaches, you seem to have all the answers, know all positions that the Vikes need to replace, player personalities, player health, draft picks that should be taken and when etc, etc. If I were this good I would buy my own NFL team and hire who I thought was the right coaches and GM for the job and be in the Superbowl the first year. WOW you people are pathetic and should become PACKER fans, at least they have all the answers and wont need your input and answers.

    There is only one reason the Vikings are going to lose this game: the dirty playing of the Saints, and it is continually endorsed by their coach. Just do this on Sunday. Wait for a cheap shot, a facemask missed, or whatever and they always cut to that smirking f..’n coach of theirs. I will not even honor him by putting his name on a Vikings page. If they did play clean, we would have been in the SB two years ago. AND THEY CONTINUE TO BE CHEAP SHOT EXPERTS!.. Start fining them.

    ponderpurple, maybe they are coaches, hiding so that the owners will not fire them for their opinions. LOL.

    Have a great day.

    A: Don’t need to be a coach to see the problems.
    B: Not all coaches know what they’re doing.
    C: Your name is stoopid.

    Yeah stoopid, so stoopid he makes a great point. There are about 25% level headed fans who realize the ups and downs of a franchise, and then there’s those who think they know it all. STOOOPIDS And VikeNasty, I have a gut feeling that the coaches know more about the problems of this team than you do you dumba**.

    To Coach Frazier:

    My younger Brother that lives in Indiana and doesn’t get to watch the Vikings games very often would like to know why you won’t play Joe Webb Sunday against the Saints or the Bears in the last game of the season? He has great talent and has shown his ability to handle any situation like running for 65 yards for a TD last week. Please tell us in your interview why you haven’t got the currage to play Webb ahead of Ponder. Minnesota has been waiting for another Fran Tarkenton. and my brother thinks that Webb could be that QB we have been waiting for, you just haven’t given him the chance.
