The Saints had so many players out on injury. It did not help.
STILL, they could have defeated SS.
They knew this and that in a game, there is a chance you can win or lose. This was a high stakes game.
They knew that any mistakes ,turnrovers would be costly and it was .

look at it this way, as I do, with all of our injuries

would you rather lose to:

seahawks
falcons - horrible
bears - again
patriots in the SB- would almost be embarrassing with all of our injuries

yes, we should have been able to beat the Seahawks, but just how far could we go.

I am looking your way, pherin. Yes since you spelled it out for me, yes. I KNOW you wish the Saints had won too, but I see your point. I don't want to see your point, but I do.

When Bush and JJ went out, it was over. Why we tried a 2 pt conversion with a draw to a guy we signed off the street a week ago mystifies me.
They were supposed to never account for the off the street guy, but as it turns out, Wynn had his eyes closed and our O-line got spanked. Why would you not let Brees pick and throw just blows me away. We live and die with our genius play caller. This time we died.

Really darstep, you think our defense was ever going to let us win that game?

41 pts by the seahawks, any idea what the Patriots would do to us?

13 TD's all season, 4 in one game. 34 pts is respectable.

This had nothing to do with offensive play calling.

All I'm saying is, I would trust Drew more than Wynn...that's all.
It wasn't a "Bad call". I just think Bress throwing is a better call.
We would probably shut Brady down. That's the crazy kind of stuff we do.
These same guys would find a way to hold the Patriots to our season avg - 19.
I don't know how we would do it, it would just happen. Just like the loss to these chumps and the Cleveland chumps and the Arizona chumps. It ALL falls into Paytons lap: not kicking to Washington...not spreading the field on 3rd and short...slam on the brakes Henderson returning kicks (never seen anything like it)...and everything under GW's control, ultimately Payton is responsible for it all. I love his live by the sword die by the sword style, it just looks like he's still refining that thing.

And then I thoroughly enjoyed watching JJ trip over the O-Linemen on the 4th and 1 play.

i can't see Reggie or PT (or Lynell Hamilton, for God sake) doing that.

Actually JJ was tripped up by the DT that totally collapsed the pocket. If we're talking about the same play, there were many bad ones...

Our whole interior line was knocked back on their ass.
