That was a damn good defense we just beat, much props goes to the Saints offense, especially Reggie Bush, David Patten, Drew Brees, and the Defense, but my MVP goes to the entire Offensive Line. They opened up running lanes, Drew Brees wasn't touch all night, and they gave him all kinds of time to survey the field and make the proper reads, that's how it supposed to look when your O-line does it's thing.

I am happy for the win....but a damn good defense? Um, they are only ranked one peg above us at 22nd. Let's not jump for joy here. It is a good win to build on and hopefully our O line can continue to block somewhat, but calling them a good defense is a stretch.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

So much for us getting shut out this weekend eh fellas? It was obvious our offensive line and defensive line blows donkey poop.

Glad to see us get a win... and hopefully we'll get another one against Atlanta. The Panthers have a touch schedule coming up and I can seeing them losing 3 of their next 4 hopefully. Got to worry about the Bucs though... their upcoming schedule looks easy. One game at a time... still got plenty of games to go.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

Thoughts? Happy ones, finally. It was so nice to watch my team come out on the field and control the game from beginning to end. I don't mind the defense giving up some passing yardage when they did, that's what happens when you are playing a clock control game from a big lead.

I agree that Hollis Thomas was a monster yesterday. I saw him run down someone from behind. The big man was incredible. Also agree that McKenzie was all over the place. Wish he would have caught that interception on the Seahawks' last play on offense. He deserved a big finish after the night he put in. Roman Harper made me smile a lot yesterday, and Charles Grant got his first sack on a stunt.

More than ALL of that combined though, I was so very pleased to see Drew Brees throwing the ball well in all phases of the game; short, mid-range, and deep. That eases my mind more than it all. Not even Reggie dancing through the defense could make me happier.

Great night of football, and I truly enjoyed it.

Totally! I for one was happy with fatboys, playing.

Loved seeing the new guys getting some time. YEAH for P.T. on the T.D., Usama played great, any word on his injury?

Finally!!!!!, for Reggie to show us he's a RB!

O and D lines played very well. I give the O line a "B"; D line gets an "A".

I won't say this was the best pefromance this team has ever had, but... it is the best performance THIS team has had. Good job boys! Great TOTAL TEAM effort.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

More kudos for Gibbs: I liked that set where grant moved to the right tackle spot next to smith. That threw off the 'hawk's o-line and produced a sack.

Kudos for Payton: that 1st and 10 from the 2 decision to go with the play-action took cahones.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

Payton held up in the second half and he should've done that. Payton also had a few bonehead play calls on third down to end drives. I'll take the win and now we have the Falcons and the 49ers the next two weeks. This means we will be 3-4 going into the showdown with the Jags at home. Damn it's not that far from 4-4. Can you smell what the rock is cookin?

Re: Postgame Thoughts

I love that we applied some pressure on the quarterback with some different blitz packages. See what happened? Hasselback made some poor throws when he had guys in his face, and we also recorded 4 or 5 sacks. Very nicely done.

Reggie can be an every down back, Sean Payton just needs to stop calling cutesie plays and run the damn ball up the middle. If you run a stretch, screen pass, or swing pass every other play, it's not going to trick anybody. We need to stick to "bread and butter," which should be some inside and outside running plays and an intermediate passing game. I mean seriously, is it too much to ask for a freaking slant? We threw one last night and it worked beautifully. Slants, curls, etc. They work even if they're not as flashy as jailbreak screens and whatnot that Sean loves.

David Patten played great. Brees was much better too. Props to both of them for stepping up when we needed them.

EJ is a stud. Great hustle. One of the few hustle plays I've seen all year out of this offense.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

I'm still stuuned looking at Holiis Thomas. I cant believe a big man that size could run that fast. The defense did a heck of a job. Coach Payton must have read these forums about letting Karney get more playing. Congrats to the o-line for protecting Brees all night. We statring to resemble our team last year. Run Reggie Run.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

I'm happy we didn't stick with Devery. He just has no confidence. Moore and Patten looked good. I think the receivers are set finally. The O line played well against Carolina and Seattle for the most part so they look to be gelling.

Bush ran decisively up the middle and even threw his shoulder to finish runs. The D got lucky on a couple, especially when Simoneau was out in deep coverage. I would like to see Simmons at MLB still with how he played against Carolina. Usama looks good. Craft looks into the backfield instead of following his man.

I'd like to see Branch in on some runs. They played well and milked the clock in the second half. Holmgren should have kicked a FG and gone for an onsides kick at the end, but that's his problem. GO SAINTS!
