Written by 

The Saints defense is No. 1 in the NFL against the pass.




Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' group, which allowed 217.3 yards passing a game in the first three weeks, has given up only 140.8 yards a game since then--dropping their season average to 166.3.

The Saints have 19 sacks this  season, including 16 in the past six games.

Offensively, the Saints are up two spots to seventh in total yards (369,9) after racking up 408 yards against Carolina.

They also rank fifth in passing (276,2), 24th in rushing (93.7) and 14th in scoring (22.3).  The Saints practiced for  a half day onTuesday before getting a five-day break for their bye.

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.
