Number One: Secondary struggles
I think one of the biggest takeaways from Monday’s loss is the obvious struggles of the New Orleans Saints’ secondary.
You can point a finger at pretty much every player in the New Orleans secondary except for Janoris Jenkins for the team’s struggles in that department, although Jenkins did have that late pass interference called on him.
The Saints’ secondary allowed Darren Waller to torch the team for 12 receptions, 103 receiving yards, and a touchdown. The only player that had any success against Waller from the secondary was Janoris Jenkins who is also the smallest defensive back on the roster.
Marcus Williams and Malcolm Jenkins struggled in coverage and tackling most of the night and Marshon Lattimore couldn’t cover anyone. Demario Davis helped quite a bit in pass coverage which if it weren’t for his contributions could have seen the box score seem a lot worse.
The secondary needs to find their groove again, especially with Green Bay coming to town next week.
