normally our NT has been neutralized...i think it was powe most of the time, who ever it was deserves credit
if the middle doesn't collapse, then Brees has to choose between fleeing right (Houston) or fleeing left (Hali)
Powe really made a difference and I thought he would have a big day at his homecoming game. It will be interesting to see if he remains the starter in the weeks ahead or if it was just the gameplan.
I don't think we blitzed any more than usual. To me, it looked like the blitzes were just executed better and the playcalling was better. They were much more straight forward plays and weren't as exotic as they have been. For whatever reason we hadn't blitzed the MLBs much until yesterday. I think Romeo is finally coming back down to earth.
