Can't say the effort was there in the New Orleans Saints loss

There's a saying in the NFL: The eye in the sky never lies.
After the New Orleans Saints' 26-20 loss to Tampa Bay, Saints coaches and players insisted they played with good energy and effort. But the game film revealed otherwise.
ZEBRA REPORT: Jerome Boger's crew won't win many friends with Saints fans. I thought the personal foul call on Malcolm Jenkins was bad and likely cost the Saints a field goal. The big decision to not overrule Desmond Briscoe's diving 17-yard catch on third-and-9 was questionable. The ball appeared to hit the ground while in Briscoe's hands but it did not appear to move.
(11:01): Sean Payton will remember Sean Jones. The extra mustard he put on the tackle of Jimmy Graham caused Graham to collide with the unsuspecting Payton and break his leg. It wasn't a cheap shot and Jones clearly wasn't trying to hurt anyone, but it was fairly dubious considering Graham was going nowhere on the sideline with Mason Foster and Geno Hayes draped all over him. Considering what he's gone through the past few days, I suspect Payton will remember Jones during future play-calling. Just a guess.

The game sucked - we sucked. They did not suck. End of the story.

The Bucs wanted it more. Seemed like a lack of motivation after coach got hurt.

You would think one of the veterans would tell the team at half time.." Lets go win one for the Gipper!"....but....No, that didnt happen

I actually thought about that too. In fact I remember KNOWING the Saints would win because they would be fighting for Sean. But nope!
