Did you see Brown and Williams gashing the defense in the 3rd and 4th quarter? No.

And answer me this: why would a team who successfully runs the ball the entire game AND IS AHEAD in the scoreboard, why would that team abandon the run late in the game?
you are missin my point completely and turning this into whatever argument you want it to be

it doesnt matter what they do in the 2nd half because they have effectively drained our defense by halftime

it is not our defense that wins these games....it is our offense.....we cant continue to play like that the next couple games because we will lose

yes i did. and being in ATL i have seen a lot of their games. they are a inconsistent team. When they're on, they are on, when they are off the play like they did in GB.

Again, take off your fan goggles. Can't base a team off one win or loss. Otherwise the Saints are no better than they were Sunday and we know they are better. Cowboys game could go either way depending on what Cowboys team shows up.

You are kidding, right?

Let's do baby steps here and start with the Dolphins..

So the Dolphins are 24-10 up at half time, 27-17 with 6 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, 34-24 at the start of the 4th quarter, and as you say they are running the ball effectively the entire game. If that is true, with that lead that late, why would they abandon the run? Don't you want to eat the clock, maybe score at least a field goal or two?

Re: A Good Team Would Have Beaten Us Today.

Look, lets face it. We have just played against some great RB's and we are still winning and so who gives a crap were we are rank as long as we win. Jackson has rushed over 100 yds against Wash ranked 5 and Green Bay ranked 4 and where are they right now in the standings?
As long as we out score them I'm happy.

what do i have to say for you to understand what im saying? it doesnt matter what they are doing.....we cant stop them so we get down big and have to mount big comebacks that shouldnt have to happen in the first place

we cant afford to get down on teams that can compete with us in the 4th qtr

i couldnt care less about our ranking as long as we are winning.......but we arent winning convincingly like we were earlier this season and the wins are starting to get closer and closer

our closest game to date was the game against the rams which means teams are figuring us out and its not going to take much for the role of winner and loser to flip if we dont figure something out quickly

I just realized that the Saints never trailed in this game. Isn't that a good thing?

Im happy too.

Injuries happen. You have to have depth, and in most positions, we do.

On paper we should beat the Rams 50-0. We've played in Baton Rouge,
San Antonio, The Meadowlands, and even England, but we have yet to
play a game on paper. The upside is, now word is we're struggling a bit,
and that paper may say we're ripe for picking by the Bucs. I think nobody
wants to play to perfection more than the Saints themselves, and maybe
this week they will set fire to that paper, en route to torching the Bucs.

GEAUX!

Re: A Good Team Would Have Beaten Us Today.

Teams aren't figuring us out. We have turned the ball over 13 times in the last 4 games. We are beating ourselves. Period. None of those ballgames were close without self inflicted wounds. All would have been blowouts regardless of the other teams running game.
