Its never a sure bet. Our result proves it. You finish strong! They didn't do it in the 4th quarter and they didn't do it in OT. It was a TEAM loss. We take it to heart, avoid pointing fingers, learn from it, win the remaining games convincingly and close the door on luck, bad calls and late game heroics.

Team loss, it sure is. It's just when you're a kicker, mistakes are amplified on something like that. We can all blame players:

1. Brees' int's
2. Pass int penalties on Greer
3. Henderson dropping the deep pass, and another
4. Meachem dropping a pass after the deep pass
5. Bushrod allowing a sack which ended a drive pretty much
6. Greg calling aggressive blitzes allowing Gonzo to be a dump off

We can go on.

All good points Cory9289. There should have been an adjustment made for Gonzo. No one was even making a play on the ball on his catches. After the 1st 3 drive sustaining catches, or so, I think I would have to make Ryan beat me a different way, any way but Gonzalas, AGAIN. Pull out the old box-and-1, just to see if the other guys could make a play...we learned that he could.

We didn't get anybody in the off season that can cover a good tight end. Harper can't do it and our linebackers are just too slow to make a play.

Disagree Dale. Harper has done extremely well covering TE's this year.

Gonzalez had a great game, but it was mostly LB's on him all day. He also caught a lot of passes when we blitzed and didn't get to Ryan.

On some of TG receptions, there wasn't a defender within 5 yards of him.

They were ready for our gawdawful slow blitz.

The media are saying that Hartley is a bit too fond of partying etc and has a bit of an attitude. Not sure if this is true, but that's whats going around.

Pardon my error on the 15 yd line remark, that was based upon my listening to the game on Sirius and that's what they initially said. The timing of the broadcast is always a little off in accuracy and it skews the timeline of things happening a little. I hadn't watched the replay yet but just got to watch the CST Saints Report.

For the record, I never would have *****ed about them going for the TD, like others have written, injuries could happen every single play. You obviously run high percentage plays in that scenario trying to minimize the risk of turnovers. But to me, to go for it on 1st and 2nd and then kick on 3rd just in case would have been THE "IN IT TO WIN IT ATTITUDE!" I would like to have seen the team show.

And by the way, I think I'd rather listen to a CSPAN broadcast for 24 straight hours than listen to those two guys, they drive me friggin' nuts. I just have this overwhelming urge to punch my car stereo when Hokie is speaking!
