Sean Payton threw a lot of looks at the 49ers' 3-4 scheme, using 10 different personnel packages. The Saints spent more time than usual in their base set with two receivers, a tight end, running back and fullback. They also used multiple-tight end sets on 20 snaps. Once Bush went down, Pierre Thomas manned his spot in the Saints' "posse" package -- three receivers, one tight end and one back - which they use in their no-huddle and two-minute drill.
Here's the breakdown of the reps at each skill position: WR - Henderson 52; Colston 52; Moore 28; Meachem 14.. TE - Shockey 53; David Thomas 27; Graham 1; Tennant 1; Brown 1. FB - Heath Evans 22; D. Thomas 3. RB - Pierre Thomas 41; R. Bush 25
