Commentary: Loss to Ravens disappointing, not disastrous
 
Jim Henderson / Sports Director

There are disappointing losses. And there are disasterous losses. Yesterday the Saints suffered a disappointing one. Yesterday the Giants, Bucs, and -- to a lesser degree -- the Rams all suffered disasterous ones.

The Giants -- playing at home -- blew a 21-point lead in the final seven and a half minutes to lose to the Eagles. The Bucs -- playing at home -- lose to Detroit in over-time...the Lions' first road win in three years. And the Rams -- playing at home -- lose to the Chiefs and a quarterback who had a body part extracted 11 days before.

If you're the number one wild card as the Saints currently are St. Louis is just where you want to go for your first play-off game. Only in the NFC West can you find a 6-8 football team leading its division trying to fend off another 6-8 football team in the Seahawks who have dropped 6 of 8 and have a quarterback controversy.

Yep. Not the end of the world. I'd rather be us losing a close game to a stellar defense whilst missing some of our key players (Hargrove) than to be the Giants today after blowing a 21 point lead and losing on the last play of the game.

We're just fine, albeit a bit hacked off. The good news is we'll probably get Anthony back (and hopefully Ivory) for the dirty turds next Monday. What a great place to let out our frustrations.

Michael Turner and the Falcons O line are better than what we faced Sunday.
