Our luck is about to run out

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Glad as anything we managed to hold on for 9-0 today, but we MUST start playing better. Turnovers and slow starts, along with all these injuries on the defense are going to result in a short postseason if we don't ...

Our luck is about to run out

Glad as anything we managed to hold on for 9-0 today, but we MUST start playing better.

Turnovers and slow starts, along with all these injuries on the defense are going to result in a short postseason if we don't correct what we can...

Game should have never been this close. We tried our best to give it away today...

I agree we need to play better, but the simple fact is injuries are killing us

Better to get these games and injuries out of the way in week 10 rather than have them happen later. This team seems to be able to find ways to win. In the past they havent had that. The defense seems to come up big when they need to even with the injuries they are going through.

Re: Our luck is about to run out

So do the injuries mean -


2009 D - Sharper - Greer - Porter = 2008 D

This had the look and feel of the loss to Washington last year...

And the difference is that this year they still won.

Greer and Sharper should be back next week.

Porter. Well, remains to be seen.

Well you have to add KC and SE to that too. That is 5 people, and yes KC is done for the year so no need to keep mentioning him, but yeah- it hurts bad

Re: Our luck is about to run out

So much for thinking that this was a gimme. It looks like last years defense is playing and these crappy first half games are disturbing. It seems as if the Saints are going to have to use a lot of stop-gaps again this year because of injuries.

Bottom line though is that the Saints are 9-0 and the Falcons are 5-4 with one of those losses from the Saints.
