Behind Enemy Lines: One-On-One With Who Dat Dish
By Tylor Walden
Predominantly Orange crosses enemy lines this week to chat with Ty Anania from Who Dat Dish and get some takes on the New Orleans Saints.
The Denver Broncos have quite the task ahead of them as they face the New Orleans Saints in what should be an intriguing mid-season matchup.
The No Fly Zone goes up against a team that has won four of their last five games after an 0-3 start to the season. The team from the Big Easy will look to move above .500 for the first time this season.
The Broncos will be looking to get a much needed win before the bye week. The Saints also mark the last NFC team the Broncos will be facing this season.
The one thing that the Broncos will need to look out for is the future Hall of Fame quarterback in Brees. Get past the offensive line and they are set.
So, expect a heavy dose of Von Miller and Demarcus Ware this weekend.
It is a rare matchup to see the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome. The last time Denver was in Louisiana was in 2004.
For this week, I have ventured into enemy territory to talk to Ty Anaina from the New Orleans Saints FanSided site Who Dat Dish.
Let us see what he thinks of the state of the New Orleans Saints and this weekend’s matchup.
What are your takes on the Saints season right now? Is there one thing that you’ve been impressed by? How about something the team should work on?
My take on the Saints? Disappointed. Especially when they seemed to have promise coming into the season. It’s easy to chalk the slow start up to injuries. But the fact is that this is a young and inconsistent team with plenty of growing to do.
That said, there are a number of things I’ve been impressed with, from Brees’s performance to a promising rookie class. But entering the season, there was concern over apparent holes along the offensive line.
Now, despite a number of injuries at tackle and guard, that looks to be one of the team’s greatest strengths. They’ve excelled in pass protection and, recently, in the run game. Of course, we’ll see how they fare against Von Miller.
At the top of the long list of needed improvements, I’d have to put linebacker coverage. It’s been a problem for the Saints for years, and our revamped LB group hasn’t changed much.
The Saints have been consistently gashed by big plays, many of which come from our LBs playing a step behind in coverage, whether on TEs or RBs. It’s been a back breaker.
