And I Thought the Saints' Loss was Bad

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; That Green Bay performance was embarrassing, though I must admit, the Giants' have been peaking. I'm really kind of amazed at the officials almost complete lack of calling penalties, especially for roughness, and I saw a few other pass interference ...

Well, at least the Saints' only lost by four, after handing 17 points to them on turnovers. That's something to grasp onto I guess, that we'd have probably beaten GB.

Next year. Good season Saints'!

Ours was worse IMHO.

Packers were done with after the 1st half Hail Mary pass...

The worst part is I live in NY. I'm going to have to hear from all my friends about how Eli is better than Drew until next season starts.

So freaking awful...

Drew won that game twice. Twice he won that game. We just needed one big stop.

No. The Giants defense is better than the Saints defense.

Just to be clear: I absolutely agree with you, Buds; and this is EXACTLY my argument when I have this discussion.

In my opinion, Drew is one of the three best QBs (Peyton and Brady, MAYBE Rodgers), if not THE best QB in the league.

Eli deserves props, but NOT YET! He'll eclipse his brother IF he wins another one.... but WE ALL KNOW that winning the NFCCG and Superbowl is NO EASY TASK.

Still a lot of football left before he can take another championship.

I hear you bro, I live in NY also and it hasn't been a fun weekend. I'd say 90% of my friends are Giants fans and I've already been hearing it. If Drew had a defense you have to think he'd have another ring or 2. Drew led us on 2 TD drives in the final 2 minutes but GW's defense showed its true colors and couldn't make one play. I'm definitely rooting for the niners this weekend then the AFC team to win the Super Bowl.

This weekend is the perfect case in point. When it mattered most, Eli's defense against the highest scoring team in football made a huge 4th down stop and forced 2 turnovers in the 4th quarter. Drew's defense? Allowed 2 85 yard TD drives in the final 5 minutes of the 4th quarter against the 26th ranked offense in the NFL.

Anxiously waiting a headline that reads; "Ram's Fisher bringing in Saint's D Coordinator Williams"
