tell me we need better offense then because we can't seem to keep seattles defense out of our backfield for that playoff game danno. if our defense pressures hassbeck like brady got pressured for only a couple more times during that game and we would have been watching saints football for 1 more week. do u agree with that?

I'm comparing situations, and pointing out that you don't make wholesale changes based on one game. You have to look at the big picture and quit over-reacting to one game, which many are.

That or a solid DT to pair with Ellis, or a stud OLB (who can also rush the passer)

Or if Ingram is there I'm OK with that.

I agree that a durable and credible threat in the running game would have made a huge difference. With that threat, our offense improves and we dont play the Seahawks on the road. We play in a nice warm comfortable dome. That's a huge difference for our Saints. But don't forget one thing. EVERY play has a huge impact. If we don't miss a 29 yard field goal, we are playing for the number one seed at the end of the year, everyone's frame of mind is different, we don't lose to Tampa Bay and we are probably still playing at home in the post-season even without much of a running game. Suddenly that "chip-shot" looks like a mighty big kick.

Wrong about what?

Are you saying you would make changes based on ONE game instead of the entire 17 game season?

Personally, I'd base my decisions on the 17 games we played, not just the Seattle game.

I'm guessing Loomis and company will do the same. Are they wrong too?

I never said it wasn't a priority. I was simply pointing out that basing that decision on strictly the Seattle game is shortsighted.

I'd prefer defense, but our offense has a few issues too. I just wouldn't base any decision strictly on the Seattle game. Shanle sucked the entire year, so I'm consistent on him.

And I'd probably wait until free-agency is over before declaring our #1 need in the draft. If we land a stud OLB and DE in free-agency, they're no longer a dire need in the draft.

I agree. I'd vote Defense for sure, followed closely by a RB NOT made of glass or an OT.
