GOING ONE DIMENSIONAL

Going into this game Lance Moore and Mark Ingram are out. Now take out Pierre Thomas on a questionable hit. So now that pretty much leaves us one dimensional. After the early turnovers Drew was forced to put the ball in the air and Frisco knew it. The fact is that the gimped up offense almost pulled it off a turnover for us may have pushed the game our way. Once again the running backs situation sent us home early and the sad part SP tried to build that early in the season. Still someone posted it that we are contenders and we are in the hunt after most teams go home. Injuries (lack of), depth, luck, Karma, VooDoo and a bunch of other factors need to be in place to get to the big stage.

Offensive turnovers hurt, but the 9ers didnt do any damage from them. The only thing it did was stop us from scoring

D played good for 3 quarters and for rested for a long time in the 4th, they came out and lost us the game.

I'd solely blame GW for his play calling on the last drive, he has played prevent all the time at the end of the games and it's finished them nicely, so why rush 7 and leave Jenkins in a one on one with Davis who had owned him all game.
Not impressed with Jenkins or many of our d backs tbh, only players that I saw give 110% were colston and Harper.
Harper gave up a pass play, but 2 sacks and a bunch of tackles, defensive scheme we play only comes through when we are leading by 14 or more, new DC please

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Yeah, but that was enough. Holding us to 1 or no scores in a quarter is a HUGE victory for the other team, especially if the game is close. We basically handed them 13 points off of turnovers. But still, 1:32 from victory, and we couldn't hold Alex Smith in check that long? Something's definitely wrong.

Yep, it could well be true. We looked 99% certain to score 3 or more points on the PT fumble. And then the clock runs further.

ANd okay dizzle refers specifically to Offensive errors, but the kickoff/punt return errors were absolutely game determining.

We would have been lucky to get out with a win, which we should have. The D calls at the end of the game were poorly chosen. We had gotten to Smith on blitzes earlier in the game, but knowing he had to get the ball down field should have changed that for GW.
