Is there enough talent already on the roster to surround a superstar talent Marcus Davenport Jersey White , or will the Saints need to address this position heavily this offseason?"The New Orleans Saints had the league's 12th ranked passing attack in 2018, averaging just under 253 yards per game. The output was the lowest since Drew Brees became the starting quarterback of the team in 2006, but much of that was due to the offensive balance shown by the Saints. Brees showed, particularly over the first three months of the season, that he could still move the ball through the air when needed. Throughout his New Orleans career though, Brees was often able to spread the ball around to multiple talented receivers, which was not as much the case in 2018. Wide receiver Michael Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara are among the most talented pass catchers in the NFL, and each had outstanding seasons, but the team's other receivers made very little impact. Today, we take a look at how the position affected the team during the 2018 season. WIDE RECEIVER Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesIn just his third professional season, Michael Thomas has taken over the franchise record book and established himself as one of the best wideouts in football. He led the league with a team record 125 receptions, totaling an all-time franchise best 1,405 yards and scoring 9 touchdowns. Thomas' receiving production over his first three years is among the best in NFL history. He is one of the sharpest route runners in the league, with both the physicality and athleticism to overwhelm most defensive backs. Thomas is nearly unguardable on short and intermediate patterns, and combats every pass with his strong hands and aggressiveness. Most mention Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, or Odell Beckham as the best receivers in the NFL, but anyone who doesn't include Thomas among those players as at least as good or better simply doesn't know football. Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesThirty three year old veteran Ted Ginn Jr. provided a solid compliment to the Saints passing game in 2017, having one of the best seasons of his now twelve year career. 2018 wasn't as kind to Ginn. He struggled early in the year with route running, then suffered a knee injury that limited him to just 5 games. He does figure to be an important part of the receiving corps in 2019, but the Saints struggled with any downfield production without Ginn in the lineup. Ginn's presence in the New Orleans offense threatens defenses downfield, and opens up opportunities underneath for the offense's other weapons. Chuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsThe Saints had signed 26-yr. old Cameron Meredith during free agency last spring, hoping that the big wideout could add another intermediate dimension to the offense. Unfortunately, Meredith was slow to recover from a devastating knee injury that forced him to sit out all of 2017 while with Chicago. He appeared in just six games for New Orleans in 2018 Marshon Lattimore Jersey White , catching 9 passes for 114 yards and a score, before being placed on injured reserve at midseason. After losing Meredith, the Saints signed former Cowboys Pro Bowler Dez Bryant at midseason. Bryant never appeared in uniform however, rupturing his Achilles tendon in practice shortly after his free agent deal. New Orleans then signed another veteran Pro Bowler in Brandon Marshall, but released him after 3 weeks on the inactive list. Chuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsNew Orleans used a 3rd round draft pick last spring, the 91st overall selection, to draft Tre'Quan Smith from Central Florida. Smith had two brilliant games: a 3 catch, 111 yard and 2 touchdown performance against the Washington Redskins and 10 receptions for 157 yards and a score against the Philadelphia Eagles. Outside of those two contests though, Smith had only 15 catches for 159 yards and 2 touchdowns in thirteen games of action. He has good size and open field ability, but struggled in traffic and must learn to refine his route running and use his athleticism to gain separation. Smith has the tools to be a successful wideout, but must take the next step in his development for this offense to flourish. Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty ImagesThe Saints have always unearthed gems at wideout in the late rounds of the draft or even as undrafted free agents. Marques Colston, Lance Moore, and Willie Snead are just a few recent names of a handful of talented wideouts who weren't highly regarded coming out of college but had a high rate of success while with New Orleans. The next player that could be added to that list of successes could very well be Keith Kirkwood, undrafted out of Temple last spring. Kirkwood had 13 receptions for 209 yards and 2 touchdowns in eight regular season games, after being activated around midseason. At 6'3, 210-lbs., Kirkwood has nice size and underrated athleticism, and plays with a physical style. His quarterback, Brees, developed a rapid rapport with the young receiver, who looks like he could be a key contributor for years to come. Austin Carr and Tommylee Lewis are two more undrafted players who have made some plays in their short careers, but have not shown the ability to have a consistent role in the offense. Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty ImagesMichael Thomas is a bonafide superstar, and one of the best offensive players in the NFL. His abilities and production are unmatched, but the Saints need at least one more receiver to attract some of the defensive attention away from their all-star talent. Thomas was responsible for approximately 33% of the team's receiving production in terms of catches and yardage. Factoring in the receiving production of Kamara at running back https://www.thesaintslockerroom.com/authentic-drew-brees-jersey , the two were responsible for nearly 54% of the Saints passing production in 2018. The lack of another receiving threat clearly handcuffed the New Orleans offense down the stretch of the year and into the playoffs. That role could possibly be filled by a healthy Ginn, a return to health of Meredith, the development of Smith and Kirkwood, or through the addition of a free agent or draft pick. Thomas has just scratchedthe surface of his vast potential, and deserves an A+ for his 2018 performance, but the rest of this unit performed at a D-level, and must play up to their potential for greater team success in 2019. WIDE RECEIVER GRADE = C CHICAGO (AP) — Maybe it was the absence of all those high-powered offenses on byes.Perhaps it was the jitters for some younger teams, particularly their quarterbacks: Deshaun Watson, Mitchell Trubisky and Lamar Jackson.Or maybe defense actually still has a place in the NFL, especially in the playoffs.The most points anyone scored during wild-card weekend, when only Dallas won at home, was 24 by the Cowboys. In total, 145 points were scored, an average of 36.2 per game. The Chiefs averaged 35.3 all by themselves this season.As Nick Foles — St. Nick in Philly for his clutch work as a relief pitcher and, oh yes, as a Super Bowl champion — observed following the Eagles‘ 16-15 comeback escape in Chicago : “Our defense really kept us in this game. It was a hard-fought defensive battle tonight and we were able to come up big in the end.”Or as coach Anthony Lynn noted following the Chargers‘ 23-17 win at Baltimore in which Los Angeles forced three turnovers and held the Ravens to 229 total yards, 90 on the ground: “Our defense was outstanding. We held that team down to 100 yards rushing. No one has played that team the way our defense played today. I was really impressed with the way our defense stepped up.”All the winning defenses will need to step up a few more rungs next weekend. Consider that aside from the Chiefs scoring 565 points this season, the Rams got 527, the Saints 504 and the Patriots 436. All of them will be at home. The Colts (11-6) head to Kansas City (12-4) on Saturday, followed by the Cowboys (11-6) at the Rams (13-3). On Sunday, the Chargers (13-4) are at the Patriots (11-5), while the Eagles, who lost 48-7 at the Saints during the season, finish off the divisional round at New Orleans (13-3).While the NFL loves to tout all the scoring records set during the 2018 season Womens Marshon Lattimore Jersey , all of the yards gained and general wide-openness of weekly contests, when it comes down to deciding who winds up in the conference title games, maybe the guys trying to stop those video-game offenses will have a say.It’s unlikely that any of the wild-card victors can win a Super Bowl without being balanced. The Eagles will need to play far better defense in the Big Easy or Drew Brees will have, well, an easy time picking apart a secondary playing mostly backups. The Chargers likely will require more than 24 points to succeed in Foxborough, where the Patriots had the NFL’s only unbeaten home record this season.Dallas needs more offensive imagination and another huge performance against the run to win at L.A. Only Indianapolis, which was superb on both sides of the ball at Houston, displayed enough of the formula needed to get the conference championship game.Then again, the Colts must slow down All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes and crew at Arrowhead Stadium.“We’re not worried about who’s on the other side,” said Colts rookie linebacker Darius Leonard, himself an All-Pro. “We always talk about whoever’s playing on the opposite side is gray matter. So we’re always talking about doing what we can do and controlling what we can control, and that is going out, playing each play, play by play and going from there.”What about the four teams coming off byes? Which ones are best suited to come up with a solid defensive showing?The two most suspect are the Chiefs and Rams. Sure, KC averaged all those points weekly. It also yielded 26.3, including 43, 54, 29 and 38 in its losses, and the 421 points opponents scored by far were the most any playoff team surrendered. The Rams allowed 384, easily the most of any NFC postseason qualifier; L.A. had seven games in which it allowed at least 30 points.New England also can be vulnerable on defense even though it’s been stingy at times when it comes to giving up touchdowns. The Patriots aren’t a force in the pass rush and against quality quarterbacks the linebackers and secondary have had trouble in coverage.New Orleans probably has the most well-rounded roster, with some standouts on defense to accompany Brees and All-Pro receiver Michael Thomas and the terrific running back duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram.And don’t think defense won’t be needed through the rest of January and into February.
