It has helped ease the pain for me to watch the freakin NFL REPLAY of this monstrosity with my Martial Arts Instructor. He pointed out to me how Seattle just snatched up the Chi (Life Force) and we just couldn't take it back. It actually had very little to do with talent. Gregg Williams needs to see it this way... and ok... maybe get Roman Harper a turbo wheelchair.

[QUOTE=AlaskaSaints;279942]I watched that game again last night. Painful. Hit pause, rewind and pause again on a number of occasions and let me tell you...

THREE touchdowns were scored on Roman Harper alone.

I swear I hate to say this but that man was HOLDING BACK. I just can't figure it out.

Please don't ban me.

'Jus sayin'

Alaska[/QUO TE]

I'm gonna agree with you 100% on this. Please don't ban me for saying this, Roman didn't play ball like a starting safety should. Like Alaska said, he gave up three TD's all by himself. Without those TD's we win easy. I know we didn't have our starting FS, but those guys (Jenkins and Sharper) have been covering up his stinch the last two seasons. Tony Gonzalez abused him every 3rd/4th and short the first game, so I blame him more for that loss than Hartley. Look at the only touchdown Manning threw in the SB, Harper once again letting receivers burn past him. Yeah I know Young should have gotten a bump on the guy, but Roman just can't let a receiver get behind him like that. We are only has good as our weakest link. Pro-bowler please, he made it last season by default and our record. Kinda like how the Falcons have some many that made it this year.

By the way I'm about sick and tired of hearing that Lynch TD run all over the radio. Personally, I don't think it was that spectacular. Those guys weren't trying to tackle him anyway. They were going after the ball. If Lynch doesn't score they run out the clock and the game is OVER .

By the way did I mention I HATE the Falcons.

On any given day a bad team can rise and beat the odds it happens every week in The NFL. The idea that with Mac Jenkins out the Defense falls apart should be the primary concern for the Coach's in the off season. With that said we should have never lost to Seattle but that's what happened.

I'm proud of the Saints for making the playoffs two years in a row. I'm embarrassed by the spineless, lame turncoat, fairweather fans, however.

Don't like the Saints? Move to Atlanta.

I was raised into Saints!.... and sry I expect more from my team.... im not ok with jus makin the wildcard to lose to a 7-9 seattle team that shouldn't have even been in playoffs anyway...

You know what they say: Opinions are like belly buttons everybody's got one.

So here's mine: Several things caused the Saints to lose that game. In my opinion we could have let Harper give up his 3 touchdowns, let Lynch run his 67 yard touchdown, and basically let the defense play 3 quarters of uninspired football if we just could have run the ball when we needed to. If you take those 3 field goals, that Hartley kicked, and turn them into touchdowns - game over Saints win. That is what usually happens in Saintsville, but it didn't happen. Why? regular starters were out. Starters are starters for a reason - they can make a difference in a game.

All that being said the game is over let's put it behind us. We are starting to sound like the Vikings after last year's game. If we had a 7 and 9 team and went in there and won we would be ecstatic right now. Let's take the high road and wish the Seattle Sea Hawks (not the Sea Chickens etc.) the best of luck. Time to move on.

I pretty much agree. We had injuries yes, but our defense didn't show up at all. They put on a inexcusable performance.

The silver lining was the Saints kept the game within reach and still had chances to pull it out of the fire. Not like, for instance, the Vikings losing to Giants 41-0 in playoffs (after the week the Vikes beat us). Those are the losses you just can't recover from.

I am as choked - no still more stunned as the next Who Dat.

But you know - the Saints overall record was very very good. Go on, compare to the other 31 teams o understand how good our season record was. Sure we lost some nasties. I think almost every team did too.

And I am still shocked by the Seahawks game. But in the cold light of day:
everyone will acknowledge that one man gave up a helluva lot of points on defence
offensively we had nobody left to play in the 2nd half
for whatever reason, no one goes to Qwest and waltzes out with a win
a play/penalty here, a play/penalty there was all it needed for the Saints to win
thee are no gimmes in NFL football. Regardless what we think, regardless what the line is. If it was that obvious we would all be rich.

Our Saints, Our City, Our Soul
Saints are individuals of exceptional holiness
