Combined rushing over 100 yards. I think that's acceptable.

3rd-12, NO48 0:38 J. Martin rushed up the middle for 1 yard loss






Now, tell me their running game wasn't effective! The runs at the end (mainly by Pierre Thomas) weren't that great because we were running out the clock and no longer had a pass threat. Carolina no longer defended the pass and just came out to stop the run. However, for the first 3-quarters, we'd average ATLEAST 4-yards a carry.

Carolina's D didn't know what to do.


(And, of course, Jamie Martins 1-yard losses are from taking kneels.)


Sometimes, I wonder about you guys...

But, it's all love 'cause, come Sunday, we're all wearing Black and Gold.

Not bad by a long shot. Marshall was a BEAST in that game. And so was Beason. If I could have these names on my roster, I'd be in Heaven. Lucas, Gamble, Peppers, Rucker, Jenkins, Kemoeatu... not to mention Thomas Davis. I'm probably missing others I'd love to have as well.

No, they most certainly are "not bad".

Re: Another win beating up on the wounded and confused

I'll be the sacraficial lamb here...Jason David showed marked improvement Sunday. Smith caught a ball early, but was out of bounds and there was the interferance call, but in both situations, he was there to make a play which is more than you can say for past games. IIRC, he had one or two nice PD's, too. If he plays the rest of the season like he did Sunday, considder me pleased.

DISCLAIMER #1: He's still a terrible CB and should be sent packing. All I'm saying is he was serviceable against a really good WR...and at this point, I'll take servicable over what we've had at the #2CB.

DISCLAIMER #2: I couldn't tivo and watch the game again, so I may be totally wrong.

I'll take serviceable if we continue to win. I hope David gets better... we need him to get better.

However I still was on the edge of my seat everytime I saw David man coverage on Smith... and it was a horrible feeling.

I was on the edge of my seat the entire game. I've learned to not trust this team at all.

Honestly, Carolina's performance was nothing short of terrible. Carr is a bum, they have no running game. The O-line was bad. The D-Line was awful. Outside of Marshall, Lucas and Smith, that team has packed it in for the season. Little solace can be taken in that victory.

Have to say it is fun that way. Watching the pats demolish teams gets a bit boring for me. I find myself flipping channels. LOL

Re: Another win beating up on the wounded and confused

Saints really needed to win this game and they won so that's all that counts and I'm one happy Saints fan tonight.
It would have been worst if they would have lost, no? I think not.
The players know what's at stake right not and I feel that they'll beat the Bucs putting us only one game back, I also feel that the Bucs have a lost coming they're way and that will be on the road @ Houston.
Fans should be happy the Saints won which gives us hope again, that's all we can ask for right now.

Rest In Peace JoeSam, thanks for everything my friend.
