Payton didn't coach his best game here. Play calling was suspect, didn't double team Ware.

And no one seemed to be blocking Spencer. He was all over Brees. The offensive line played like absolute crap. Brees was WAY off his game. Devery dropping that pass in the end zone, Bush coming up gimpy when he had a lot of daylight ahead of him, and to agree with you, Payton's horrible job of play-calling in this game were huge factors in this loss.

In retrospect, maybe the Saints needed this loss. It should take a lot of pressure off of them now. They will steam-roll Tampa and if they clinch HFA, then the starters can rest against Carolina now that 16-0 is out the door. Get everyone healthy and get ready for the playoff run.

Actually we need two more games but if the Vikings lose we only need one game to clinch HFA.

I can live with 15-1 but I want a 2 game win streak going into the playoffs.

pass 1st down.....run 2nd down.......pass 3rd down......punt 4th down

tell me 1 series before the 4th qtr that this wasnt the sequence?

we ran the ball 13 ****ing times the entire game

guess how many times we passed? i'll save you from the pain of looking up the stats

we passed the ball 45 times this game

over the past 3 games drew has thrown the ball 134 times

thats 45 times per game......without balance we are weak

we averaged 5 ypc on the ground.....there is no reason we shouldnt have run the ball more at the beginning of the game

this thread is another one of those emotional threads with very little information to back it up

just like the jenkins thread

Re: Why did we wait 3 otrs

It was a total team loss guys. Offense, offensive play call stunk, o-line stunk, Drew Brees STUNK, Defensive backfield gave up over 300 plus yards, d-line was good at times, offense didn't make a third down until minutes left in the 4th quarter, we let them get yards on kick returns, we stunk up the field in almost every aspect of the game. We almost came back to tie the game which speaks volumes but lets face it, we lost to the better team tonight.

Actually, passing on 1st down and running on 2nd (and medium to long) is a good way to combat a pass rush , with that said, I wasn't thrilled about the play calling either.

Re: Why did we wait 3 otrs

Is it me, or did it seem like the defense did not put pressure until the fourth quarter? Did we purposely not blitz until it was too late?

Yeah ... O-line was major suckage.

Bottom line... Cowgirls needed this game more than the Saints and they played like it.
