This won't be the last one ...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We'll lose in Carolina, but regardless of what happened last night ... I've always thought this. 14-2 is a GREAT season, but a last game of the regular season loss may be our demise. Like most of you ... I'm ...

This won't be the last one ...

We'll lose in Carolina, but regardless of what happened last night ... I've always thought this.

14-2 is a GREAT season, but a last game of the regular season loss may be our demise.

Like most of you ... I'm hurting this morning. I mean ANYONE, ANYONE but the cowgirls ...

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

I don't really care that it was the Cowboys. They played better than the Saints and they deserved the win.

This Saints team has questions to answer. And they still control their own destiny.

Last night was the perfect storm. The Saints injuries caught up and met a team that was backed into a corner and came out FIGHTING.

I know this team will recover and will get healthy again.

No one will stop us in the Dome when we're 100%

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

I can't sleep. I'm just lying here staring at the ceiling, and then checking my blackberry.
I guess I have been spoiled, because I forgot for a while, what losing felt like. Now I
remember all to well. One game shouldn't mean this much, but to be honest, as a long
time saints fanatic, I think there will always be a part of me that always sees things
like this as "half empty". Waiting for the other shoe to fall. Preaching the apocolypse
after one loss. Now I'm sitting here expecting the worse outta this, and it sucks!

I'm sorry guys. I wish I could break this thought pattern, but I have had my superbowl
heart broken so many times. I think I need therapy.

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

Yes Sir.

We can concentrate on a Defense slanted draft after we win the Superbowl! There is way too much drop off when Big Sed is out!

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

SaintPaul .. I'm COMPLETELY with you .. I'll get flamed for saying it, but our current Defense --- NO WAY we win a championship with them playing like that. I get that Ellis and Greer are still out, but with Ellis in the past few weeks we've been run on like a powder puff team.

We're a GREAT team no question, but as the playoff's near ... Our injuries have piled up and WOW --- we just looked tired last night. Our offensive line was horrible.

By the way, if Henderson catches that WIDE ASS OPEN TD in the 3rd ... That game looks different I'm pretty sure because we get rolling sooner than just the 4th quarter ... Is it just me or does Henderson look like he doesn't care as much since Meachem became (READ EARNED) the guy?!?!?!?

Here's hoping to me being wrong ...

Dude, we gave the game away. To a team fighting for their own lives. Not to make excuses, but injuries played a factor in the defense and the offense was just plain FLAT.

I don't know if a loss is ever a "good" thing, but it will definitely fire the team up for the playoffs. Besides, if we face the 'girls again, we'll be healthy and they will cry.

Yeah ...that's if the Girls make the Playoffs. They still have two more games to choke!

Anyone remember Kendrick Clancy? you know our OTHER starting DT Yeah, that's right, we're playing without TWO starting DT's, a rookie CB, A CB who was out of football, backup LB's and it's been going on for a few weeks now.....

Look, we were lucky to make it to 13-0.

Bottom line is that this team needs to get healthy. We still control our own destiny and you know that Brees will bounce back.

We cannot go 13-3. We need the Dome.
