I honestly don't blame this one on the D

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It was a hard environment to go in and win. They were coming off and embarrassing day and we were coming off embarrassing someone. That place was rocking with the World Series parades and crap. The Perfect Storm....

I don't blame the D either, they stopped them on some critical drives. Rams also gambled on 4th downs. My only knock is watching time after time the ball going through their hands, not a tip but clearly in their grasp and can't snag it. We need those turnovers. I hope GW puts emphasis on this fact. Jackson again played like a monster but they slowed him enough to win. About 40 of his yards were given. He had two long runs that resulted in punts.

You just stated what we are all trying to say. One has to help the other. THIS game, the Offense did not help the D. Of course the D is important. I never said it was not. Instead of opening your eyes and seeing what the rest of us are, you keep saying D is why we lost.

It was our D that put the first points on the board. Get with the times man. This isn't the age of Defense wins championships anymore. Its offense wins championships and defense has to be just good enough to not lose games. Blame all these stupid new rules. It is what it is.

Yea the O had a bad game, but let be real how many bad games have the D had this year. Brees and company always step up every game and unfortunately they had a bad game like all great offenses have. When our D doesn't show up and our offense does we have a chance to win. When the O has a bad game and the D steps up we lose. Having a good O is a luxury good D is a necessity. But I do agree with everyone else coaching does need to be blamed.

Can not agree!
We should hold everybody to 20 or less, especially these chumps.
Steven Jackson's first +100 yard day since 07'.
What was so different about our tackling than the previous 50 games where he failed to break 100?
Backup QB, injuries and breakdowns that have resulted in zero wins until they meet us.
Defense has as much a part of this loss as the poor offensive showing.
If we hold them to their average, 9 points a week, we still win.
If we give them an extra touchdown just for shegrins, 16 pts, we still win.
This was a team PPP(piss poor performance), and the defense was a big part of that.

The Saints are in trouble. The weaknesses are exposed.

We would have Darstep..a pick six...a blocked punt...getting sacked and having to punt...and most important...no running game..how can a D hold up like that?

How can the defense not shoulder some of the blame they scored 31 points on us. This from a team that should not have scored more thant two touchdowns at best.
