Wow! We got a wake up call !!!!!!



Being in the UK I can't watch the game on tv or listen to it but I just followed it on the NFL.com and WOW! we got a wake up call.

Look at the stats:

Passing: NO = 383yds BALT = 159yds.
But we still lost.

Rushing: NO = 35yds Balt = 132yds
Not good, the ground game is so important and we just couldn't get it done today.

Balt got 3 interceptions. Questions need to be asked!!!!!!

Second quarter Balt got 21 points, what went wrong??

And last, but not least there were no stats on NFL.com for penalty yards and 3rd down conversions, but I bet they would make interesting reading.

In a nutshell we had great passing yds today, but we didn't get into the end zone, which, is obviously where it counts.

Also what happend to home field advantage. it didn't seem to bother the Ravens that they were in the Dome at all!!!!!!

Hope this was just a blip this week, there were lots of lessons to be learned.

Geaux Saints!!!!!!!

I'll still support the Saints whatever the Scores!!!!

Black and Gold forever!!!!!

RE: Wow! We got a wake up call !!!!!!

the picks weren't all brees, but still he threw the ball, so it falls on him eventually.... however, our inability to get the running game going today was sad....reggie looked scared, i mean, really scared to run against that defense... he has to get it in his head that this ain't the pac 10 anymore.... sorry folks, but that's the facts.... we have to get more creative in stretching the field with him out of the backfield.... he hasn't been able to run the ball from the running back position all year long.... either convert him to wide out or something, but he's not going to be the franchise running back that we hoped he'd be.... we should be wearing down defenses with deuce for 3 quarters, and then plugging reggie in in the 4th quarter, but we aren't....

Maybe now unrealistic Saints fan will catch their head's and give this team a realistic prognastication of 10-6 or 9-7 instead of the 12-4, 13-3's I was hearing before this game. This team is an improved one, but we arent where we need to be yet.

RE: Wow! We got a wake up call !!!!!!

i really think that a lot of fans, just like the team, felt that the 1 or 2 game lead we had was good enough, but now that we're all tied up and about to get passed by the falcons, we should all wake up.... everyone here is saying it's alright we're still 5-2 or whatever, but if you look at it, we are going to be in a very precarious situation very soon.... we'll see, but i don't like the feel of it....

Just like last year when we beat the panthers and then tanked, I'm afraid we've turned back into the Saints. It just took a few more games to do it this year.

Oh my lord.

After one bad game and people are already giving up. I guess we were supposed to win all of the rest of our games this year.

Sad.

RE: Wow! We got a wake up call !!!!!!

if you notice in all my post, i never suggest that i'm giving up... we're supposed to come out and play good and win the games we are expected win.... this was one of them... one bad game leads to two bad games and so on until we are out of the play off picture... i'm saying they need to get with the program (stop the turnovers, stop the dumb penalties, etc.) quick before they lose a hold on a playoff birth.... it's not that far fetched of an idea considering the slate of games we have remaining and the tendency of teams in new orleans...

I'm sure glad the team doesn't give up on a season as some fans do...
Come on, give the team some credit here...

Because we've seen it all before. It's not the loss. Everyone loses a couple. It's the way we lost. Playoff teams don't get murdered at home like that.
