INJURIES TO BLAME MAYBE

Even with the injuries The Saints should have been able handle The Seahawks. The bottom line is that Seattle played more inspired football and maybe The Saints were looking past them a little. There was the distraction with Gregg Williams heading out to another team. The weather was okay which was rare for that region this time of year so no blame their. One thread went over the uniform color jinx already. I started to have a bad feeling a few days ago when I posted a little humor thread regarding re-signing Joe Horn due to all our injuries. The post was automatically sent to the trash can for some reason. It was a clean post no negative or foul words kinda of strange reaction from this forum.

I never saw your post (probably because it was canned so fast), but that's too funny ... Some people on here think that they ACTUALLY make a difference for this team. I'm superstitious too (a little), but I think there are people on here that truly think they somehow affect the outcomes of these games ... God bless 'em.

I saw the post and found nothing offensive about it. I don't believe that people on here actually believe they can make a difference over a win or a loss, but I do love our passion. That's what true fans are about.

Superstitions are just funny.Fan fun. Players fun too. Saints would never win a SB or be in due to the Dome is built on Indian burial gorund so urban legend says.
Saints won SB.

I did not even see the game yesterday. Working. I only saw the last 8 mins.,4th qtr. I really thought the Saints could have pulled through .

You know we had a good chance of coming back but that unbelievable run by
Marshawn Lynch was the back breaker. You have to give he and The Seahawks credit they played out of their skulls yesterday.

You mean that run when the defense quit, after that play the nail was in the coffin even though I thought drew might still pull it off

Yeah that was a sinking feeling watching the mis-tackles and of all times to break down. But I too had faith in Drew he didn't give up he is a gamer and he had no running backs by that time. Honestly the positive thing is we have Drew to rebuild a team around and with that we will be a competitive team as long as he is in our backfield.

NINE missed tackles (NINE) on the Lynch TD. NOPE. NO EXCUSE FOR DAT.

About half way into the season I felt out ream was tired.

I think making it to the SB is really taxing on a team in many ways. Saints and colts were struggling with injuries all year and I think it cost both teams this season. Extra time off and start making the adjust ments to this team that are needed.

OLB
RB's to replace PT and Bush. Yeah I said it.

I'm backing you on this; what good are PT & Bush, if they can't stay healthy...
