I agree with your point because I'm still pissed off too that our defense allowed a 7-9 team to score 41 freakin points and we missed 19 tackles on 1 199 yard td run.

I understand and respect your comments.
Yes we should not have lost to the 7-9 team, but we have to put the loss behind us.
I am in no way blaming this loss on injuries, i don't like to make excuses but it certainly didn't help that our two leading rushers got put on IR a week before the game was played.
In credit to the seahawks, they exploited roman harpers weaknesses, they obviously studied where they could gain an advantage and they found one.
We were too inconsistent all year, i also made a comment in the live chat that even though i was disappointed in the loss it was probably for the best this year because we would not fair well in the later rounds.
We need to be more of a complete team and unfortunately, this year it did not happen, next year it will.
People are just trying to keep their heads up, as you pointed out, yes we shouldn't have lost to that team but at the end of the day, the NFL is any given sunday - How many colts fans do you think thought "Theres no way we are losing to the saints in SB" and look what happened.
We have to chalk this up as experience and keep it for our ammo, going into next season.

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

I'm sorry. I too understand the sentiment, but injuries do matter. I DO blame the loss on injuries. No, not exclusively on injuries, but in large part. Players are 2nd and 3rd string for a reason. We were trying to gain a yard and a half at the goal line with a guy we signed 4 days before the game.

Nobody was more frustrated by that loss than me, but you have to have a raised perspective. It wasn't long ago we were like the failclowns just hoping for back-to-back .500 or better seasons.

That loss was more of a fluke than an indication. You can aim to win the super bowl every year. Every team does. Still, only a handful have a legitimate shot at it, and once the playoffs happen it's anybody's game.

We're going to be in the hunt for the next several years - and I'd bet real money that we would have beaten Seattle with Jenkins and Hargrove able to play.

Injuries DO matter, and so does a double-digit win total and a trip to the playoffs this year, just as having another real chance next year matters. Let's not end up like Cowboys fans. Appreciate what the team accomplished through much adversity this year. Hold management accountable when it comes to roster moves this off season, and enjoy that fact that for the first time in our long history we are perennial contenders for the big prize.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

The Saints were 15-3 last year going into the Superbowl, Not some loser 7-9 team. Sorry Dizzle, you know your my buddy, but I'm kinda like AllSaints, I'm still pissed off that we lost to this team. We should have been able to beat them with all of our starters sitting on the bench. All the guys taking the place of our injured palyers are also in the NFL. They should be able to play NFL quality football.

I understand mate, it was kind of a bad example to use on my behalf. Yeah the loss stings because plain and simple, seattle are not a good team, i believe what affected us the most was the fact that;

All year we played down to the competition (i have no idea why)
We seemed to stop caring after we developed a 10 or point lead
Ivory, Thomas, Jenkins, Hargrove and Graham being out certainly wasn't a great help for us.
Never the less, we should have been able to beat the hawks, without those guys.
The one thing i am hanging my hat on at the minute is, hey we have two 11 or more win seasons, back to back, we have a SB championship and we are going to be a contender for years to come.
It stings but it will be a good experience lesson for us, and i am looking forward to the offseason transactions and draft picks.

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.

No one gunna ban you bro, plain and simple Roman Harper got embarrassed, his worst game as a pro. Its no secret that he was terrible vs the hawks.
Regroup, get a Running game (either deangelo in the offseason or young workhorse in the draft)
More talent for GW to work with. We will be fine.

All this from couch potato's who couldn't run a 100 yards if their life depended on it.

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.
