Who Knows?

INT #2 - Brees caught and trying to throw to Devery but the lineman made a circus grab (6pts)
I thought this one looked like he was trying to ditch the ball and hit an O-Lineman in the back of his legs.

INT #3 - Brees doesn't see the lineman drop back the slide over, throws it right to him (6pts)
Yup! Bad decision making.

INT #4 - All Brees, trying to force too much.
Yup! Bad decision making.
Good thing they Missed two interception opportunities in the first quarter they should have had.

Well maybe those wouldn't have turned into pick 6

ROFLMAO..... Isnt that the truth! The pets of the talking heads will give Kudos to one of their favorite QB's, after a loss for a good game. Frikken Romo is still being called one of the Elite QB's.

What if he had been injured on that last meaningless drive? We would be calling for Payton's head today.
I agree with this...

You obviously did not READ what was under the poll... and just chose to rant.

I think some Saints fans have a little Super Bowl hangover them selves. Yesterday may have cleared their vision and they are now realizing we can not win this year based on what we did last year. I cringe when I hear an announcer call us the Super Bowl Champs.... He is right but this is a new season. Everything started over.

I guess I'm old school. Mop-up duty is for bench players, and that last drive was more meaningless than a preseason TD.

I agree.... Some games however leave me with a need to vent. Bad play happens, but the stupid-sh1t wears on my nerves. There was a lot of that yesterday ...
