Rather have it next year. And a few other thoughts.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; This loss stings. I almost cried. Think of it this way, Payton and Mickey WILL find a way to improve. They always have. This 49ers team is good, but I don't see them dynasty good or elite like we are. ...

Rather have it next year. And a few other thoughts.

This loss stings. I almost cried. Think of it this way, Payton and Mickey WILL find a way to improve. They always have. This 49ers team is good, but I don't see them dynasty good or elite like we are. I think the Packers will also slip next year. I would rather have it next year in the DOME if I got to choose between this year and next. We had a hell of a run. Broke record breaking records, and showed the league the best offense its ever seen.We earned respect in the NFL community. Now about Gregg Williams. I was blaming him at first, but I think it comes down to personnel. He is playing with the cards he's dealt. We miss McCray, Hargrove, and Sharper. We can find more players like that. Our offense is set. WE can now beef up our defense and will be unstoppable. Can you imagine the how all those blitzes would pay off with the right personnel??? Anyway, sorry Who Dat nation. It was a good run, but we will be contenders for years to come!

I agree with everything except the part about GW. He's just awful. I've been saying it all year.

Dude, I like your post.
I agree with everything, except for GW part.
I say this because I left the game at 49'ers 17 to Saints 0.
(Had a busy day, was just so nervous about this game.)
I did not see it so I cannot comment.
The Saints had a good year. These years have been amazing.
Getting to this point in a year is so difficult.
Next year is too far off to talk about .
Dude, if what you are saying could happen, then this will all have been worth it.

Next year's goals: Better pass rush, new DC, #1 seed throughout playoffs = Ring #2

This D has been suspect all year, we have some really good players but yet have not played sound the entire year. It has been one he!! of a roller coaster ride with our D. I like consistancy, were not. If our O was not as good as it is, we would have a snowballs chance in he!! to get as far as we have with a D like we have, They played good against teams like the 9'ers but stink against teams that are good on the offensive side of the ball. Our D has played on borrowed time all year and our time ran out the last 5 stinkin' minutes of this game today. I want consistancy period.

I don't understand ripping the D and Gregg Williams. They forced 3-and-outs and kept us in the game. Without their effort this is a blowout. Got to the QB too. Outside of one missed tackle by Jenkins on the long Gore run we played solid against the run.

The Sproles and Roby fumbles are what I'd like to have back. We just usually don't make those kind of mistakes, being careless with the ball on special teams. Rest of the game we did what we could. Something was missing on offense - #16 and #23. The Niners defense played out of their minds. But again we did what we could.

I can't be embarrased by this loss. Last year was a lot tougher to swallow.

Better pass rush comes from better personnel

We need a defense...plain and simple. Our D sucked in '09 also but at least we got takeaways.....This year it still sucked and no takeaways....cant win like that

I don't know if we need a new DC but something has to change with this front 7.
