Blowing leads all year finally caught up with us

Everyone saw that all way through the season, if it was in San fran, Dallas, cincy, you name it - it didnt matter if we were up by 17 or more, we never shut the team out, we let them get back in the game and we always had to perform last minute heroics.
Well yesterday, the hawks were clearly the better team, and once again we were up 10 points early and we let them back in it again. It sucks that we pretty much got embarrassed, but I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing many changes in the offseason to bolster our pass rush and front 7, then the draft to get a new RB.
I know it hurts, but heads up guys, we have a super bowl championship that is recent, Other teams do not.

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Yes the early leads were a kiss of death for us and it did catch up to us. I guess The O was putting up the points and The D figured it was time to coast.

That was the most pathetic defensive performance I've seen in recent memory.

Remember 'Immaculate reception? Well this was "Laying of hands".

You know maybe GW didn't have his mind in the game, could have been thinking about his next destination.

Defense clearly didn't think Seattle could beat them. Probably like most us thought, even if Seattle has a good game they won't outscore us. Brees said the Offense missed some opportunities and could have scored 50 points, wouldn't have thought 50 was the magic number.

You cannot let crappy teams hang around. Last year we would step on their throats....this year we let them hang around and it cost us dearly.

HE AIN'T GOING ANYWHERE. He's not a head coach. Fingers crossed.
