Bobby Hebert loves what he's seeing from Saints D

His post game thoughts on yesterday's win

The New Orleans Saints got a big home win againt the Detroit Lions on Sunday 52-38, putting themselves above .500 for the first time since 2013.  The Saints got a big 45-10 lead early in the second half, but almost let it slip away.  Turnovers, special teams errors, and penalties would plague the team in the second half, allowing the Lions to almost make an improbable comeback.

Former Saints QB Bobby Hebert couldn't believe what he was seeing.

"We almost gave the game away.  You've got to be freaking kidding me!  I mean, what in the world," Hebert exclaimed.  "It truly was a tale of two halves."

The one consistent was the defense, which constantly harrassed Lions quarterback Matthew Satfford and forced him into five turnovers.  Hebert loved what he saw from that unit. 

"Boy if the defense keeps playing like that I like our chances," he said with optimism.  "If you look at it, in the turnover margin the Saints were plus three (on Sunday) and plus six for the season."

Next up for the Saints are the Green Bay Packers who are stinging after losing two time MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a broken collarbone yesterday.   

"It all counts, no matter who is playing.  You've got to have a little luck, but there is no way you should lose to the Packers on the road. . ." Bobby predicted.  "I don't care that it's at Lambeau Field.  The Saints should win."
