we cant afford to get down on teams that can compete with us in the 4th qtr
I understand what you are saying. You just don't want to understand what I am saying. You stated the Saints are allowing 115 yds per game and that's a concern to you. I am telling you teams cannot against the Saints in the second half when the other teams need their running game the most to put the game away.

The Saints are not going down big early in the game because the defense can't stop the run. The Saints are going down early in the game because the offense keeps turning the ball over and the other team gets short fields.

Re: A Good Team Would Have Beaten Us Today.

It is turnover, turnovers, turnovers!!!!!!!!

Colston hold on to the ball we score 35pts and everyone is talking about how we blew the Rams out.

We need to protect the ball.

It is stopping our drives and giving our opponents short fields to work with.

I will take 19 one point wins over 18 blowouts.

Can I get an AMEN to this?!

Besides, a good team would have beaten us but a bad would have allowed themselves to get beaten.

Re: A Good Team Would Have Beaten Us Today.

You guys crack me up... this is starting to sound like the Falcon's board.
The game is about match ups, adjustments and finding ways to win. In those 3 areas we have excelled 9 times this year.

"The better team doesn't always win"... we may not be as good as some of the teams we have played but we made the adjustments, look for match ups and find ways to win them.

Re: A Good Team Would Have Beaten Us Today.

Straight from Sean Payton's mouth today:

"Having watched all the tape, I thought it was a good win for us to get but it wasnít always clean. There are a handful of things we will be able to clean up this week and work on. We didnít have as many snaps this week offensively. We had the turnovers that were disappointing. I thought defensively our second half was much better than the first half. We did a real good job against the run and we got off the field on third down."

Doesn't sound like a coach that is too concerned about the Run D to me. Sounds like a coach that understands that the team that controls the ball usually wins the game.
