Here's a little video you might want to watch to remind you of some awesome Thanksgiving memories:
As far as I'm concerned there's no need to look any further than the 4th and 1 overtime play. That stop was a season defining moment and a reference point for the rest of the year. Say what you will about the struggles of the defense this year, that moment turned boys into men, figuratively speaking. Moments before that, of course, the defense was gashed on a drive that almost went 95 yards under two minutes with no timeouts to cost the Saints the game. But while the defense gave up huge chunks of yards at times, the red zone defense came up big by stopping the opposition from getting in the end zone. That happened for the second straight week, just in time for crucial NFC South rival matchups. This defense will never be confused with one of the best, but we're starting to see improved linebacker play, stronger showings from Roman Harper, and better run defense. That should be good enough to win games with an offense like this. The coverage units happened to be pretty good, too. Oh, and then there's the kicking game... outstanding as usual. I keep waiting for this Kasay experiment to blow up in the Saints' face but his performance continues to be incredibly reliable. Garrett Hartley who? Make the jump for the grades.
