I totally agree, that 3 claps chant is kinda lame imo. The chant from last year was bad ass. I would be so fired up when they did it. They need to come up with something new next year.

Injuries, count them we got em every where

Defense, just not up to the task

Motivation, they had it - on D we didn't and that wasn't Vilma's fault either. He was every where. Hate to say this, but sean cut our nasty-ness when he cut Bobby McCray, now we got great character guys who can't get to the QB.

I blame the loss on the black pants (have we EVER won in the playoffs with them?) and mainly on the idiotic decision to pooch kick the ball on the second kickoff to the 30, and then give the Seahawks the ball past their own 40 yard line, where they could then cobble together an easy drive and get back in the game. That changed the tone of the entire game -- up until that point it was really Saints all the way, and the Seahawks were reeling. Prior to that kick the defense had even looked pretty impressive, what with the turnover and all. But giving Seattle that easy chance to score not only let the Seahawks right back in the game, it sucked all the energy out of the Saints sideline, and made the offense suddenly switch to "desperation Drew mode," and made the defense feel like they were playing catchup, even when we were still ahead.

I also think that Sean Payton was so concerned about covering his behind to prevent a screwup from the team's lousy special teams play, he tried to get cutesy with it, and he let other areas of the game plan lapse, or didn't pay enough attention to the fundamentals of how to beat the Seahawks.

Defense was the problem

I also think the pregame chant thing has wore out its welcome. I think after awhile it becomes conceited. IMO, if you're a Saints player and you can't get fired up for a game, shame on you.

How about an in-game ritual instead? For example, the Lakers' bench cross their legs the other direction after the Lakers starters score their first basket of the game. Make it something simple and fun.

Other people said this earlier in the year, about the pregame chant as well -- the new chant was too patty-cake, patty-cake, it was too cutesy -- like Drew was spending too much baby-time with the kid, LOL. It just wasn't FOOTBALL enough. Like the old chant, or the "We Are New Orleans" one -- those would make you want to run out there on the field and take off somebody's head, and then throw the bloody helmet up into the stands. Even if you weren't on the team you'd be ready to tackle the TV, or chest bump with your grandpa after hearing that thing. This year's wasn't bloodcurdling enough.
