Saints-Skins 2006 Game Offers Clues

After getting an initial glimpse of the Saints on film and watching them on TV on Sunday, some members of the Skins offense see a lot of similarities to the club Washington faced in The Big Easy near the end of the 2006 season.

Center Casey Rabach for one thinks the team is operating its defense with similar principles (though perhaps New Orleans has upgraded its long-suffering secondary a bit). They want to be aggressive at the line, play man coverage, bring the heat off the edge in the pass rush as often as possible and are not afraid to stack eight in the box to shut down the run.

"They're not a whole lot different from what they were two years ago," Rabach said. "They're definitely an aggressive team. They're not afraid to commit a lot of guys to the box to stop the run. It's going to be tough sledding for us, but it's a challenge that we're up for taking."

Let's take a look at the Skins' 16-10 upset of the Saints in the Superdome in December 2006, shall we? Todd Wade had to start in place of Jon Jansen and did a great job, his best performance as a Skin, helping shut down the pass rush. The Saints mustered just one sack and the sluggish Skins offense found holes by running.

Ladell Betts, on his way to a 1,000-yard season in place of injured Clinton Portis, piled up 119 yards. Jason Campbell threw a beauty of a pass to Santana Moss out of play action, catching Moss between two Saints for a 31-yard touchdown, and an early 10-0 lead. And, most shocking of all, Joe Gibbs actually let T.J. Duckett touch the ball ... four times no less! How crazy is that? He ran four times for 18 yards.

Keeping Campbell upright and allowing him time to process information was the name of the game, particularly in the din of the dome. Although this is a home game, the template is pretty much the same.

The defense was stellar that day, a rare day of joy for what was the NFL's worst pass defense in '06. Somehow they limited New Orleans's attack; Carlos Rogers finally held on to a pick, the team held Drew Brees to 207 yards passing and the Saints to 270 yards overall. Not sure they will be able to duplicate that outing this weekend. It'll be tough.

4th, do not trade a starting stud running back for anything less than a stud QB. RBs are the life blood of FF. If you have one, hold on to him. Stud RBs, especially those that get touches at or near the goalline, are going to get you more points week to week than a QB. What happens if one of your other RBs gets hurt? Have you considered the bye week? There are tons of stop gaps out there at QB and WR that you can get before trading Turner, who coming into this season was viewed as a hot FF commodity - that's why you drafted him.
Don't do it.

This HAS to be my conscious because that is exactly what I plan on doing. Thanks for blogging your guts, eh, spirit out too!

Like I said, no way I'm trading Turner, UNLESS I get offered at least 3 different players of good value.

All i'm saying is that he's an unkown and either way isn't ready to start. I hope in a couple years to be thinking that the skins got a steal.

Posted by: Anonymous | September 9, 2008 3:18 PM

how can he be an unknown but we sure he's not ready to start? I'm not ready to give up on Campbell just yet, but if we're 0 and 5 I will be, and I will want to see Colt. What we've seen from Colt is that in college, against teams of similar talent to his, he was other worldly, against a team that had superior talent to his he was beat up and played poorly, in the NFL to date playing with players of similar talent (all 3rd stringers) he had statistically one of the best preseasons in the league, look sharp, quick, and commanding.....so why do we just assume that he's not ready to play if he were to get on the field against 1st stringers if he's playing with 1st stringers also. I get tired of people dismissing Colt because of the Georgia game when he got hurt halfway through and was playing with nowhere near the same talent level he was playing against!

If we see Colt play this year, something has probably gone very wrong.

The only other situation would be late in the 4th quarter with a massive lead. I don't see that situation happening this year.

I hope Colt works out, but hope Soup finds a rhythm more.

I don't really know what to do about my FF team. I'm in a league for money, already lost week 1, and I have Brees and Bush as 2 of my "go-to" guys. Do I start them this week? I'd hate to do it, but I might have to.

Options at QB: Brees, Garrard, Delhomme

Options at RB: Addai, Bush, Edgerrin, Maroney, Chris Johnson, Deangelo Williams

I don't trust Garrard (behind his now depleted o-line) or Delhomme (without S. Smith), nor do I trust Edge, Maroney, or Williams (I play 3 RBs). Should I keep them in and root against my fantasy team, or bench them and hope for the best?

Those who think JG 2.0 wasn't a farce answer me this: why did he stay with Brunnel longer than John Boy Walton lived at home? It chaps my hide to think about the wasted past few years and to feel all but certain that we're in for more years of the same. JC, JT and Thrash...give me a break.

There may be some other subtle differences between the 2006 Saints-Redskins game and the one this coming Sunday, but the one that jumps out at me is that we had a squad of people at least partially drawn from RI peeps who spent the week volunteering in New Orleans and then went to the game. They obviously contributed to the Skins' victory down there.

So... if any of you spot anyone from New Orleans doing volunteer work in DC this week, tell them to get the hell out of town.

Brunel is the bane of Gibbs' legacy. Imagine if we had just played Collins like Saunders wanted to instead of #8. Unfortunately I think that decision was made based on Mark's character and their shared faith more than it was on ability and what was best for the team, which overall I think WAS the legacy of Gibbs 2.0 great character strong faith to get through tough times (some self inflicted personnel choices) but in the big picture, a bunch of decisions that weren't best for the team.

Couldn't have said it any better, I don't want to see Colt this year because that means my suspicions of Campbell's suckage are true...or Campbell and Collins got hurt, either of which I don't want, but, I think Colt could be the real deal and if he gets the shot.

Posted by: zjfr2 | September 9, 2008 3:59 PM | Report abuse

Campbell's overall size and athletic ability are considerable attributes, but how he will develop is the source of debate.

"He's more than just a product of his [offensive] system, and he has natural talent," one NFL personnel executive said of Campbell days before the draft. "But he has some real issues to overcome. If Joe knows what we know, he's not going to take him with that pick there. Everyone I've talked to thinks this kid is at best a second-round pick."

Another team official said that until his senior season, it did not appear that Campbell would even be drafted. He likened Borges's work with Campbell to what California Coach Jeff Tedford did with recent first-round picks Aaron Rodgers and Kyle Boller, and cautioned against expecting too much too soon from Campbell.

"He's going to be holding a clipboard for two years," the executive said. "I think it will take him that long to learn the system and be ready to execute it."

One Southeastern Conference defensive coach believes the Redskins erred in taking Campbell, saying there were three quarterbacks in the SEC he would draft ahead of Campbell. "He'd win a beauty contest, and the NFL just sees a tall quarterback with a strong arm," the coach said. "They're obviously not looking at all the other intangibles."

psps, I honestly think Delhomme is a better option than Brees (combined with the honest thought that the Skins secondary -- with Springs -- is better than the Bears).

4th -- was looking at your roster and you have no QB. Pretty huge hole there. Delhomme isn't chump change. Beating SD in SD without his all pro WR isn't some minor deal. When Smith returns, he's a top 10 QB.

You have nothing that helps me much other than Turner, which helps me a lot. I got some guys that could help you other than Delhomme, like Henderson.

Stud RBs, especially those that get touches at or near the goalline, are going to get you more points week to week than a QB.


Just wanted to point out that this is wrong. Stud RB score many more points in relation to OTHER mediocre RB's than stud QB's score in relation to mediocre QB's. So the point differential between a Tony Romo to say Jeff Garcia is much less than Tomlinson is to say Michael Pittman.

That is why you choose RB's first.

The 2006 game @ the Saints also was the game where Lloyd, Brandon dropped the ball, about which Saunders remarked to Lloyd "looks like the lights caught you in the eye" ... and Receiver, The b!tched about how JC's ball was "way underthrown" ... [replays reveal, at a minimum, that The was incorrect.]

i'm officially off the "bench jc bandwagon"...cuz it really doesn't matter who's at QB or who the coach is for this team...yes the QB sucks and the coach is on OJT. unless danny makes changes and sacrifices his ego skins will be the same every year.

i really think the D will shut down the saints. they have good success against short QB's. the question is if the saints can stop CP. if they can't skins win.

25. Washington Redskins (0-1), down 4 spots. The Redskins got a huge spark down the stretch last season from Todd Collins. Will they need him again if Jason Campbell continues to struggle in Jim Zorn's offense?"

This Vinnie Iyer guy clearly didn't put a lot of effort into his assessment of the Redskins! Unfortunately, until they play better not many people are gonna put much thought into them.

Ya'll stupid, seriously the Skins' suck. Zorn is in over his head and is overmatched. Jason Campbell is a bum, no head on his shoulders. The front office stinks, Dan Snyder and his puppet Vinny have no clue what they are doing.

Who spends 3 second round picks on receivers and expects them to contribue? We could have drafted one receiver and used the other two picks for positions that would help us, maybe upgrade our old and slow offensive line.

I have been a Skins' fan all my lift but I cant be any more, I give up. Dan Snyder has ruined this team. We might as well call them the Washington Raiders because they are just as bad. The worst curse a franchise can have is not injuries it is bad ownership.

The Redskins will NEVER EVER win anything again until Dan Snyder either sells the team or comes to his senses, steps away and hands the team over to a real GM.

This is from ProFootballTalk about the first Monday night game last night:

I would like to point out that Jared Allen did NOT sprain his knee 10 days previously in a collision that looked like it should have kept him out for at LEAST one game ... and that Jason Taylor had no holding penalties.

-----
4th, its quite a dilemma for you. I picked multiple QBs early in the draft because I know QBs get hurt. All 32 starters got picked. Trade value means something. I think Delhomme will be a top guy, but Rivers plays a pretty weak schedule. Either way, I'll get solid and maybe spectacular points from the QB position week to week -- as long as I play the right guy.

I figured there would be a fair trade out there where I could pick up some real talent in return for real talent. Just earlier than I expected.

Also went for the backups to Adrian Peterson and LT because I figured if they got hurt, instant major PT. Both teams will want the backups in to keep the big guns healthy.

What we've seen from Colt is that in college, against teams of similar talent to his, he was other worldly, against a team that had superior talent to his he was beat up and played poorly, in the NFL to date playing with players of similar talent (all 3rd stringers) he had statistically one of the best preseasons in the league, look sharp, quick, and commanding.....so why do we just assume that he's not ready to play if he were to get on the field against 1st stringers if he's playing with 1st stringers also. I get tired of people dismissing Colt because of the Georgia game when he got hurt halfway through and was playing with nowhere near the same talent level he was playing against!

You know you subconsciously think Colt is not that good because you said "in the NFL to date playing with players of similar talent (all 3rd stringers) he had statistically one of the best preseasons in the league, look sharp, quick, and commanding....."

re-read that...you were exactly right. Colt was playing against similar talent aka THIRD STRING IN NFL talent. And you want him as starting QB? No thanks.

Glorified speaking worked for Reagan.

That's what I thought. Thanks for the learning lesson.

I thought FDR actually got stuff done?

Lincoln too?

Dealer - I read his accomplishments. Maybe it's the way I look at accomplishments, but I didn't see much.

In no way am I endorsing anyone. Just saying........

The Saints put up 350 yards last week through the air and won by what 4 points?

New Orleans has talent on the O side of the ball, but their defense will give enough away to allow teams to stay in the ballgame with them.

NO isn't going to beat Dallas, GB or NY with the defense they have.

Another rookie with a standout performance, Eddie Royal last night for Denver. It seems like every game that I watched in week 1 had an impact rookie. I mean besides our rookie punter.
