Well, he may have a point, they also mentioned how bad the Texans secondary was the whole game and how we should be putting up big points. Where were the rest of the receiving core, could they not get seperation, Copper Henderson, Patton, Moore, Henderson did have a catch for a touchdown, but it was broken coverage.

Re: Terry Donahues comments

I give Donahue his credit, he knows the Saints WR group. Lets think about this. Colston was non existent until the past few games. Henderson leads the league in dropped passes. Patton is a backup who has done well, but for the most part has been a non factor. Copper, well, where the heck is he hiding these days? Lance Moore, a starter by default, because of the other guys woes. Lance Moore is a decent WR, but a starter??? That should tell you all something there. Donahue, unfortunately, has it right.

Re: Terry Donahues comments

First off, As a UCLA fan... Donahue was the luckiest coach in the world... But he does know talent.

I was sad to see Marques shaken up on that play...
Only b/c it was his second drop of the game... What a sissy...
Was the injury report

Colston - probable (dropped 2 passes)


I miss Joe Horn
There I said it...
you were all thinking it

Re: Terry Donahues comments

At this point, why are they not playing Meachim? He certainly can't be any worse. At least see if he's worth keeping around another year.

While I hate to hear announcers who are supposed to be unbiased dis our boys, if they want people to stop berating them, then they need to start playing like professionals, not high schoolers.

i really liked joe, but he's doing jack with atlanta...and it's NOT totally b/c he's not used much, but he has dropped numerous balls thrown his way. there was an article a few weeks ago about it..

i just don't see why they don't play patten more...he seems to be the #2 most consistent.

Re: Terry Donahues comments

Patton is the equivalent to Joe Horn for this team. He hasn't been around as long, so his leadership isn't as strong. However, his on field play reminds me of Joe Horn. He's consistent. He picks up first downs. Their styles are incredibly similar. I agree that he needs to be utilized more. Unfortunately, that's not in SP's playbook.
