As good as that drive was for San Francisco, they executed it poorly in the end. P Manning would not have left 10 seconds on that clock. Believe that. Alex and company left us with over a minute.

No panic here.....Sure we have some problems to fix, but so does everybody else. The difference is that we are still able to Win in spite of our problems. Bottom line, I don't care if we win ugly, it still counts as a Win. The NFL will still put a W up for us. Remember the days when we weren't able to do that?

I had some questions on why we couldn't execute the way we had hoped, and why we were particularly off on D on the niners last drive. Soon as they left brees 1:19 on the clock i knew we had the best shot. Still had faith all the way through!!

Glad you're not pointing fingers, because nobody here that I'm aware of warrants it. I check my faith every Sunday when I skip church to watch the Saints, and I've suffered through much more shaky games than the one we watched last night. I have been and continue to be eternally optimistic about my Saints, but I can sure as hell call a spade a spade. We were owned on both sides of the ball last night. That is no revelation, and saying so doesn't lessen my devotion to this team, or anyone else's for that matter.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

I see alot of honest opinions and some simple criticisms of everyone here's favorite team, the Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints. The Saints are not and will not be great defensively. The Saints offense will not be perfect all season long. The Saints coach will make a decision or two that isn't by the book. It is what it is. And what it is right now is 2-0. TWO DAT!

Yep, calling it like you see it has nothing at all to do with being a "bandwagon" fan.

Our defense got their teeth kicked in last night. That was obvious to anyone who watched.

We can't keep rolling the dice and coming up UGLY! Teams are NOT going to hand us the ball 4 times each week. Yea, I've heard the "we CAUSED those turnovers" argument, and that creek is about to run dry. B&G fans aren't jumping ship or giving up; we would rather be sippin tea than try to bail with a rusty bucket. We've looked better than this and perhaps we are spoiled. I like to think that we've seen how the game should be played and now we expect a certain level of proficiency. I like how the Superbowl felt, and never want to go back to the If I coulda woulda shoulda days ever again. If Payton would take my calls, I'ld tell him directly. But for now you guys/gals will have to do. We're at 2-0 and have a lot of work to do and a lot of obsticles to overcome. UGLY wins are not going to get us there.

I don't know if iot is bandwagoneers or what but we can't give up on them because of a couplae of close games. We have got to keep the faith and believe. We are the Who Dat Nation~'nuff said!
We looked like crap. We really did. Our Defense looked like that of 2008, and made Smith look like a pro bowl qb. I will ***** when my team is not performing up to its potential. Does that mean I do not support them or am giving up on them? NO it doesnt. I will always state the obvious, and it is obvious we are struggling. I am sorry, but this team has to much talent with personnell and coaching to play like this, and just because I say so does not mean I am a bandwaggoner or giving up on my team. I am thankful for the win, but in the heat of the moment I will pop off when we are playing like garbage like we were last night. Do I believe it can and will be corrected? Yes. As someone else said we are getting our rough patch out of the way early so we can click down the stretch. I do believe the outcome of the season will still be the same, but the fact remains we played like crap last night.

This.

What I found most encouraging about the win last night was that Payton did not look like the winning coach at the presser. He looked pissed off.

There will be improvements or there will be changes.

I'm hoping Atlanta is the game we get back to our A-game, because we'll freakin' annihilate them.
