NOLA Saints Losers
Well, we got the bad Marshon Lattimore on Sunday, as the Saints cornerback was roasted by Marcus Johnson all day long. Johnson finished the day with over 100 yards receiving and feasted whenever he was going up against Lattimore.
We all know that Lattimore is a good cornerback so fans shouldn’t be worried about his recent extension but he has to play better than this. Sunday’s performance was pitiful.
Sorry, Who Dat Nation — I wrote about how Brian Johnson had stepped in nicely at kicker and then he went on to miss two extra-point attempts. That’s my bad.
Johnson did knock through the lone field goal try of the day but the two missed extra points were bad. The Saints lost by two points, so just doing the math, those two extra points would have been enough to, at the very least, tie with the Titans in the waning minutes. Had the Saints gotten both of those, however, they’d have been tied 23-23 with that final touchdown and an extra point would have won it for them.
It was a bad game for Johnson and the entire kicker situation has been a massive headache for the Saints. Get better, Wil Lutz. We need ya, buddy.
Trevor Siemian was sacked twice early on in the game and the guy responsible for allowing the defender to get to his quarterback both times was right guard Cesar Ruiz. This hasn’t been Ruiz’s year and for whatever reason, New Orleans hasn’t done a good job finding viable guards.
I’m so done with Adam Trautman. From penalties to dropped passes, this guy just isn’t the answer at tight end moving forward. His false start penalty on the two-point conversion was costly and made it more difficult to get those two points. Juwan Johnson and Nick Vannett should get reps at tight end from now on.
Same, Sean. Same.
