5 plays that cost us the game

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The Boo Williams "Watch me juke this corner like Barry Sanders" play. McCarthy's "Lets run straight at their 2 best players with 10 in the box" play-call. Talman Gardner's 3rd down drop (but you think Dante catches it?). Brooks "sure-TD ...

The Boo Williams "Watch me juke this corner like Barry Sanders" play.
McCarthy's "Lets run straight at their 2 best players with 10 in the box" play-call.
Talman Gardner's 3rd down drop (but you think Dante catches it?).
Brooks "sure-TD pass to wide open Boo" thrown too low and intercepted.
The Bogus "defy the laws of gravity" Fumble/Pass call.

BTW: The defense absolutely QUIT after the failed 4th down conversion.

Don\'t forget the safety that should have been.

I missed that stinking play.
I was making room for more beer!
I\'m too heartbroken to rewind the game and watch it.
Was it an obvious blown call?

You also forgot to add the bogus pass interference call against Fred Thomas. The Panthers WR Young was mugging Fred. We got screwed on that one for sure.

Yeah, the officiating in this game was wretched. When you have the WR put his hand on the CB\'s helmet and push him down, and yet, the CB still gets flagged, that\'s a load of bull.
And although Boo was wide open in the endzone, because of the angle of the secondary, that throw was too hard for Aaron to make, and he should have known not to throw it.

BS - A little touch and air under the ball and that\'s a TD. Aaron knew it, he was jumping up and down after it. He could have made that throw. I\'ll tell you one thing though, if AB\'s half throw was a fumble, then Jake\'s under-arm toss to no one was clearly a safety. 2-0 and the ball in the first quarter after a good looking first series of plays that only ended b/c a rookie receiver dropped a pass after he got drilled (which is understandable) and I find it hard to imagine us not blowing that game wide open. THe offense was moving at that point, the Dome would have been rockin\'. Of course, I cannot for one minute blame this on the officials. Me needed one score in the second half and we didn\'t get it. That\'s on us.

Like I said in another thread, I could have sworn that Aaron was on the run when he tried to make that pass- if I\'m right, he should have known better than to try that- if I am wrong, he threw a bad pass. Either way, he made a stupid mistake, which I\'m pretty sure that we can all agree on, unless someone wishes to argue for the sake of arguing.
And normally I don\'t ***** about officiating, but it was piss poor, brotha. Regardless, good teams adjust and win anyway. Even if we would have been awarded the safety, being up 22-20 in the 4th, you don\'t think that the pace of the game would have been dramatically different? If you think that we would have won, I got news for you, that\'s not necessarily true. So you can\'t blame the officiating on the loss, but they still did not call a very good game.

Hey man, like I said, we needed one TD in the second half to close the door. One score in 30 minutes, and we couldn\'t get it. WE blew that game. WE did.

One thing that I would like to note - Deuce rushed for 101 yards - making it his fifth 100 yard rushing game in a row - tying a team record. That has been overlooked in all this. It\'s unfortunate for Deuce that this team isn\'t playing better b/c if they were he\'d be on his way to becoming a household name. He can break Ricky\'s record (God I would love to see that) next week with another 100 yard day. It will be tough against a good Tampa defense, but he has had success against them in the past. Of course, this is a different team in a different year.
