To me his arm strenght didn't seem really good. But he was running most of the game too, from the rush.

How did Clark, Melton, and Fincher look? I was hoping all would get some PT.

They did. They all looked good. Clark played very well, but so did the others.

Martin needs to work on his pocket awareness. The other back-ups did very well. This is the best I've ever felt after a loss.

The only worries i have about our boys is the backup QB position. Jaime Martin looked timid, and unaware of what was going on out there, he looked like a rookie and not a 12 year vet. As long as we keep Drew Brees healthy we're be fine, but we defenantly have to address the backup QB position in the offseason. GO NFC SOUTH DIVISION CHAMPION SAINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well yeah I guess the game was good in a way. It showed that we are done if the game is left up to Martin. Hopefully that will motivate our line to watch out for Drew even more, if they need any more motivation than winning the SB.

Done? Martin had the 2nd and 3rd stringers on O-Line and RB, WR, and TE. Give me a break. Carolina kept most of their starters in on both sides Offense and Defense into the 4th quarter. Peppers, Jenkins, Rucker going at our backup offensive line and him throwing 20-26 and over 200 yards. One pick going for a TD just like Brees in the Baltimore game. Give him a break guys, he is alot better than Bouman was last year.
Just think him having to go in because Brees gets hurt (God Forbid) but with the starters. Also, our backup defense prevented them from getting in the Endzone and only allowed a FG on that last scoring drive.

Let's give Martin a break, yesterday was his first time playing since last season , it would take a couple of games with the starters for him to get into his game.
Martin is a great backup, I was happy when the Saints signed him this past off season, I still say the Saints made the right choice bringing him to N.O

I thought Martin deserved a game ball!!!
He got planted just about every time he went to pass, and he got up every time.
And he rolled with no Deuce, no Reggie, no Colston, no Jammal, no Faine, no Stitch, etc... just some sporadically Karney blocking here and there, which pretty much were the only plays he didn't get planted on the gground.
And indeed, Carolina played the 1st stringers on both sides of the ball the whole game.

I thought, considering the whole scenario, that Martin did pretty well.
He didn't rifle any balls, but he made a few throws to a spot rhar were dead on.

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable
