I read articles and see sports shows about what the Saints need to do to beat the Falcants.

IMO, it all comes down to one thing-fundamentals.

Looking back at the Saints 4 losses, they are all because of one thing or a combination of things, i.e poor tackling, dropped passes, penalties, turnovers, etc.

I am not saying that if the Saints never committed a penalty, or missed a tackle or dropped a pass that they would win ever game.

But they would win every game against the Browns, Cardinals, etc.

Sometimes, no matter how well you play, the other team plays better; ask the Colts after Super Bowl XXXLV.

The Saints are in the enviable position against the Falcants, (and virtually every team in the league), of not "needing" a particular player, to win.

I'm not saying that the Saints don't need BETTER players at certain positions, Shanle comes to mind, but no one is saying that we need a receiver or a RB to be a better team.

Bottom line is that if the Saints play fundamental football, the Falcants chances of beating the Saints ranks second behind death by meteorite.

Yeah, it seems that we have gotten away from doing the basics and have focused more on other elements of our game. We all know that Payton reads the B&G so he should have our players thinking basics again. When he took over they started on the basics and have overlooked them since.
