Postgame Thoughts

U. Young was in on some plays...that's good to see. Props to Pierre Thomas, too. Get'em how you can, son!

Gibbs called a good game, too. Way to put Harper in position to make some plays.

MM played out of his mind. He's my drunken MVP of the game.

Hasslebeck blew it for sure. That pick to Bullocks was one of the worst plays I've seen in a while.

A little (lot) disconcerting that no points were scored in the 2nd half.

I'll see you thugs in the morning...Who dat talkin'?!?

Re: Postgame Thoughts

They dominated.

I've always said, that if the Offense could score more than 20-points, the Saints were going to win. The Defense will only give up around 20-points a game... as long as the Offense plays DECENTLY. Of course, if the Defense is on the field all game long because the Offense can't get a first down, then they'll give up more.


I was discouraged that we couldn't 'put the nail in the coffin'. If we wouldn't have abandoned the pass while trying to run out the clock, we probably would have atleast got a field goal. But, props to them for atleast building a lead large enough that they could still pull off a decisive win even after they couldn't run out the clock effectively on multiple chances.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

now on to next week.
In my tenure as a saints fan I have always said it does not matter what the two teams records are
never take the falcons lightly
away
at home
underdog
or top dog.
it is Atlanta! 500 miles away. one year our senior. It is always a game.
Lets take this win and continue the momentum.
geaux!

Slow it down a lil. I'm still marinating here, give me a minute. 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.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

Nice to get a win. Nice to see Brees throwing a few good passes (and people catching).

Overall, we did o.k. on defense - BUT, when they began shredding us in the second half, I think it was because we were lining up like 12 yard cushions on the receivers (dumb).

When you blitz, you get results. I'd like to see more jammage at the line of scrimmage.

oh and Simoneau, ride the pine.

Good win, feels great, hopefully we can build on the confidence and get a little streak simmering in a roux

And just for the record, Hollis Thomas had one hell of a game. Way to go fat boy, I'm happy for you. Us fat boys got to hang together.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

All of them played well. Although it seems the offensive linemen each had a penalty. But they played well besides those.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

Maybe the first 4 preseason games were not enough. Maybe, just maybe, the Saints needed a 4 game preseason re-start. So now that the 2nd preseason is done and they have a bobbled punt returned for a TD (blocked punt against Atlanta last year) which may be the kindling that gets the Saints on fire...who knows.

Re: Postgame Thoughts

Did anybody notice HOW Bush got sprung? Karney! Finally Payton gave Karney some playing time and everything blew up. The offensive line is the the same ole line that everyone here has been crying about for the 1st 5 weeks. The difference last night was Karney helping to plow a path for Bush and protecting Brees. Everbody seemed to contribute to a much needed win. Guys were actually hitting - it sounded good. People were diving for loose balls and playing with some passion - it felt good. Brees was comfortable in the pocket (1st half) and it looked good. Best of all, we held on to win, that is always good. I still have my concerns though: at the top of the list is the sluggish 2nd half. We were a couple of bad bounces away from a different 1st half. Seahawks hand us a touchdown on the first punt attempt, and then they give us back Patton's fumble 15 yards further down the field and we score. The game COULD have been much different and COULD have called for much better play in the 2nd half. It seems that we did only what we had to to win, and that leaves me reserved and cautious going forward.
