We are marginal, at best. Yeah, we could get lucky and get into the playoffs like last year as a wildcard or maybe even eke out the division in this incredibly mediocre division, but then what? The Packers will repeat. They are rolling teams left and right. Weak schedule, but they PUT TEAMS AWAY. I can't remember the last time we put any team away.

I now understand why we don't get any press; even horrible teams get press... We are marginal. A person never knows what to expect therefore never knows what to predict. Just watch and see if the Saints can lead the whole game and win by 3 or trail the whole game and win by 3. If Drew has a bag game we will LOSE. Sorta one step behind the Colts, for instance.

Today, our luck ran out. Now, we don't even have a coach on the sidelines. We have a bunch of clowns coming to a consensus about what we will do...

At this point I'd rather be a crappy team showing up and beating a team that we are not supposed to beat. There's a good feeling in that. Instead, we show up and play tit-for-tat with teams that we should crush. Until there's an "outcome."

I pumped all the sunshine I could pump this week, but you know what? I had a bad feeling about this game after we could not put away the Panthers last week.

Next week the winless Colts get a chance to beat us... ON NATIONAL T.V.

Smart money is on the Saints not covering whatever spread there is.

And I HATE to say that.

Depressed at this point,
I am as pissed about this loss as you are; yes the Saints played a bad game today.

So did other "elite" teams:

Patriots needed a late TD to beat Dallas.

Packers were held scoreless in the 2nd half by the winless Rams.

Should/could the Saints have won this game? Absolutely, just like they should have/could have beaten Green Bay.

Saints will re-bound next week against the Colts and get to 5-2 and then Silence the Lambs to get to 6-2 before the bye week.

Saints will be fine

Agreed, this is a solid team...but there are some disturbing, glaring weaknesses...

What is so frustrating is that everyone in SaintsNation could see we had an excellent squad with only two glaring weaknesses (i.e. Linebacker, Offensive Line Depth)...

...and the Executive of the Year procrastinated, went on the cheap, and didn't nothing to lockdown for a Title - and everyone could see it...

At Lambeau, a dome team, in Winter?

Napoleon had an army that was bada$$ in it's day too.

Ask them how that Russian Winter worked out for them...

Before we all get too bent out of shape let's remember we look bigger getting off the bus.
