Does the loss to Dallas (not chasing 16-0), and Minny losing- help us by allowing us to get healthy for the playoffs?

How many of the starters do you want to play in Carolina, and for how long?
NO, there is nothing to be worried about... That loss was the absolute BEST thing that could've happened to us & it could'nt have happened at a better time. I would expect to see N.O. blast on TB & CAR. I feel SORRY for them.
There were many things in the game that i and other's noticed & the crazy thing about it is that even a few of my friends who are DALLAS fan's said it themselves & agreed with me when i brought up certain things. It all started in the 1st quarter.

(1) DALLAS 1st two poss., SAINT's did NOT blitz not even one time & DALLAS scorred TD's on both poss. Then on DALLAS next two poss., SAINTs blitzed damn near every play & sacked Romo 2 times & hit him on almost every play, while play'n man-2-man with the WR's.
Then once the 2nd half started, we didnt blitz anymore until late in the 3rd & into the 4th quarter, but by then the damage had already been done. Why stop something when its work'n??? G. Williams had me so damn HOTT & even the DALLAS fan's with us noticed it too.

(2) Bushrode got beat down all night by Ware. Now why didnt they switch him to the other side or replace him & just see if someone else might have better luck against argueably one of the best DE's in the game???
Once again the DALLAS fan's noticed that too.

(3) Last, but not least. I hear folk's whinning & complaining about a few of the call's the officials did & did'nt call, well im not one who looks for excuses. YES, there were sum terrible call's, but that happens every week, so i dont bother. My take is this... They lost fare & square. DALLAS was the best team that night, we were just OFF. LoL, even my DALLAS buddies said that themselves, but it is wut it is, bottom line!!!

Oh yea, my bad...
Forgot to respond 2 your other question's, kinda got caught up in the moment, lol...

Ok, as for get'n player's healthy, YEA, it could help a lil bit, but to be honest, we are very close to having most of everyone back, so thats a good thing.
As far as sit'n player's and all... I would expect to see all starter's play the whole game against TB, to allow us to stay sharp & not get comfertable.
As for CAR game, i would expect to see the starters play until the half or maybe even a lil more, but NOT to finish. That way there not just sit'n for two weeks straight. Also depending on our situation with MINN with the home field advantage ordeal!!!

I personally believe we will be just fine & even BETTER after this lose... It showed us that theres NO team out there to be taken for granted & we learned that the hard way!!!

Re: Looking to see what you guys think, and expect

As much as I hate to admit it, the loss to the Cowboys and Minesota's loss to the Panthers was probably one of the best things that could have happened to us. It takes the 16-0 pressure off the team, therefore allowing the Saints to stomp Tampa Bay and taking it easy (maybe even losing) at Carolina. This will allow another week to get our players healthy so that when we play the Cowboys (or whoever it may be) again in the playoffs we will be at 100% and be able to take on anybody.

I think any team currently in the playoff hunt can stomp our ass if we don't bring our A-game. But if we do bring our A-game, there isn't a team in the league that will beat us.

Just my opinion.

Well said - I agree totally.


I think we roll against Tampa this weekend, then play starters a quarter or two (if any at all) against Carolina.

With the "perfect season" gone and HFA clinched, what is there left to play for (against the Panthers)?

Re: Looking to see what you guys think, and expect

I think the Saints need to make this a quick kill and sit a few player in the second half.

Biggest reason: playing a team with two wins this late in the season can be dangerous for a team that almost has the #1 seed. Players on the Bucs side are playing for their jobs, which could result to fowl play.

So slam the door on this game in the first half!!!

i sorta feel it was good for us to lose because it will fire up the team.. winning so much sorta lessens the fire.. i expect indy to loose by upset next week.. thats my opinion.. but the loss is just another step to winning.. thats my idea..
