Exactly!! I mean the Cowgirls HAD to have that game and they played great and we didn't, no matter how you look at it they wanted it more and played like it! this could be a blessing in disguise this removed the pressure of being undefeated, we didn't need that pressure I would rather go 9-7 and win it all than go 16-0 and be one and done in the playoffs. As much as I wanted the win last night I am not that upset about it! This loss should refocus the team! On a lighter note it was great to see porter back now if we can just get greer because Jenkins got abused last night!

Re: This won't be the last one ...

The Saint's got beat last night by a healthy team that needed to win, we only loss by 7 points with a very hurt football team.
IMO Shockey was missed last night not for his pass catching ability but his blocking, I believe that if he's there DB has a little more time in the pocket.

The defense is missing SE, JG, and it was TP first game back from injury and did well but needs more work to get back to where he was. Jenkins is looking like just what he is a rookie, IMO probably would be better at safety rather than corner.

I mentioned the starters that are hurt but there backups as well are banged up and not playing, we're picking up players from the sofa and expecting them to play and play well. Last night the injuries caught up with the Saint's and there was no hiding it.

IMO SP has been holding players out because he knows ne needs a healthy football team more than a perfect regular season, the playoffs is all that counts now.

That's the way I see it too man. I don't care about going undefeated. All I care about is getting healthy. And if we're healthy going into the playoffs we're going to kick a## and take names.

WHO DAT!!!!!!

Re: This won't be the last one ...

I apologize gentlemen, I don't like to lose. Any game, any where, any time. I have been
this way since I started watching football. And by the way, this isn't golf, there are no mulligans
here that I know about. Momentum, at this time of year is essential, going into the play offs,
and this loss will either wake people up, or we have been exposed.

And I also want to point out that the hype around this team was getting out of freakin control!
Maybe now it will die down, and we can get back to playing 4 quarters instead of just two.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

13-3 is OK. 13-4 is not.

Just need a tiny 5 game winning streak now. Don't seem so big after ripping off 13.

Re: This won't be the last one ...

Hold on! Wait a minute!! One part of being a fan is having hope. As bad of a record as the Redskins, Bucs, And Rams had their fans were confident that they could beat us. And they kept the faith until the game was over(except Bucs). Why are we downplaying our boys already. This is where I separate real saints fans from "Bandwagoners". I'm not questioning anybodies faith as a fan but lets be positive. It's one lost. We still have a first round bye and can still get homefield.
