Negative: I can't go with playing own when the game was meaningless. Perennial champions don't know what that is. Sure, use conservative and one-dimensional playcalling. But I don't know how champions can play down. And surely the better way is to take our 1st teamers off the field.

Daniel looked just fine to me for a backup. He made a bad pitch to Reggie, but it was the guy's first NFL action. He made a few nice throws.

While it did have a pre-season game feel to it, I must admit I'm concerned about a couple things I saw when it was starters versus starters (excluding injured players on both teams)

It seemed when Drew dropped to pass, none of our WR's were open. And most of Drews completions were to a Saint being draped by a Buc.

Conversely, when Freeman threw the ball it seemed like there wasn't a Saint withing 5 yards of their receivers.

It looked like the pass version of the Baltimore Raven game.

I'm hoping it was simply a vanilla scheme combined with the knowledge that there was no way the Panthers were gonna beat the Falcons so we just didn't play our A-game.

I think that team I saw Sunday loses at Seattle, but I'm sure we'll ratchet it up a few notches.

You don't need to say it over and over. We get it. You want Adrian McPherson back.

And just how do you know that Chase isn't a NFL caliber QB? He's only thrown 3 passes in his career [not including preseason], which he completed 2 for 16 yards.

And how do you know that Pryor is a NFL caliber player when he isn't even in the league yet?
