Positives from today's game

Remember Fitz hasn't exactly been surrounded by hags his whole career. He's had Warner, Boldin, and Breaston flanking him for quite a while.
Speed kills

Colston may not get open like Fitzgerald does...after all drew hits the open receiver. Maybe colston just isn't open as often

Fits put up good numbers with 2 pretty good wideouts playin with him. Now he's putting up good numbers with no help

Can't argue w production

I love colston and my authentic colston jersey but fitz is better...no contest

I'm not running around in the streets with a bass drum strapped to my chest, shouting about our defense, BUT...stopped them on 4th and 1...stopped them on 3rd and goal from the 5 when it really mattered...although the defense has much work to do to improve, you can't exclude that from the list of overall positives today. Looked lousy in spots, but faced a QB they weren't prepared for and got stops when they really needed it.

Y'all can have Colston and Fitz; I'll take Graham any day!

He's too big for corners/safeties to cover and too fast for linebackers...

My positives...
A win is a win is a win.
Another straight win.
Great.
10-3.
Super!!!
December going into the playoffs and ...is like a new season.
To get to this point is important.
The little league football teams in the NFL are separated from the big man treams, you know.
The positive for the Saints is that they are in the playoff teams right now and these past wins gives them the time to hunker down and really prepare for what is ahead.
Saints are in a good position.
They cannot relax or rest on winning 10 games.
There is still the season of three big games left for them. Every game is a big game.
You have to treat every game from Sept. on as a big game to win and a big game to lose.
End strong.

The W is ours, we have won 5 straight and are 10-3

Chris Johnson - most said he would run riot like he has been doing recently

11 carries for 23 yards - im proud of that

No turnovers

When we ran it, we looked good, ivory had a couple good runs brought back, sproles had an awesome punt return TD brought back and Im still going to be ignorant and say Jimmys catch WAS A TD!

10-3 leaders of the NFC south, smile people, WHO DAT
This part made me the happiest! That and we won an outdoor, cold-weather, on-the road game. Most of the "experts" said we wouldn't be able to do that because of our history on the road outdoors, in inclement weather. We sure showed them!

I do agree that Fitz is a better receiver... but as I suggested, I feel a lot of it has to do with opportunity. He does have better production and as long as Colston is wearing black and gold in the well oiled machine we have, we'll just never know how good he could have been.
