Correct...no excuses he played bad. My point is it takes more than 1 game to have a pattern of poor play.

Mike, I was talking about this last year...

Worked on a Saturday till four for a customer so his equipment could be on a job for Monday am...

Was telling him how my daughter got to be on the field at halftime with American Allstar Cheerleaders or something and what I had to pay for one ticket for the exwife to go with her...

Realizing how I had taken my afternoon to help him when she was visiting with me that weekend, he ponied up two nice tickets for the game...

We sat next to a well-known, rich dysfunctional family from my home town...

The crowd never-got-into-the-game; and when Abby and I started to cheer our heads off, they asked us to be quiet so they could enjoy the game; this wasn't box seats or club loge tickets either...

Saw customer a few weeks later, thanking him, we dicussed the change in the feel of the dome; he agreed about the feel, but said that that family rotates tickets and he gave us two more (my business now takes care of his fleet of equipment) - same result in Dome Feel...

I knew then that with the Superbowl victory we were now in the era of corporate seating and that while the eye candy was great (and each of the Saintsations walking around pregame recognized Abby, stopped and talked to Abby - Bonus) the Dome advantage was gone...

Now, I watch the game at my place where I can cook and my friends and I can walk around, cutting up and enjoying the game...

But the advantage of Home Games is not there...

Money has a way of making one more comfortable.
The whole seeming lack of focus I attribute to the lack of a stable leadership structure.
I think that we will see more of this as the season progresses.
Even the return of suspended coaches will just add to the instability.
Being wrong about it won't upset me at all.

Re: Marques Colston

Colton made a huge mistake fumbling the ball but he wasn't on the field when the skins were putting up 40 points. This was a total team effort or lack of effort.

Even with the poor play they still had a shot until that pass interfere call on Roman Harper, IMO was a horrible call.

These officials are absolutely horrible, just anther way Goodhell has found a way to **** us.

Certainly a possibility. Nobody gave the Skins a chance in the dome. The Colston fumble was the result of a perfect tackle. Same play 10 times probably results in a fumble over half. The offense definitely was not what we are used to seeing but they did enough to win, we just couldn't stop the Skins offense. Didn't help that Brees was under pressure all day. Bad game all around.

Marques Colston is great, has been great, and will continue to be great. Marques, injured, had a rough day, but still caught some big passes. Drew sucked yesterday. Defense sucked yesterday. Zach Strief jumped twice. Lance Moore jumped & dropped pass. I believe Graham dropped one too. Ingram did little. Grubbs couldnt get his shoe tied. Sproles should have ran the last punt back to the left. Kromer (or Carmichael?) brought some weird
personnel groupings, and failed to use Courtney Roby. Joseph Morgan had a bad day. And guess what? We, the crowd sucked yesterday too. The Redskins fans easily bested us. Whats up with leaving early, when your
team isnt really out of it? This was your Big- Bad- We're- Mad- Homecoming? pffft. pitiful.

It was a team loss, and we're part of it. Lets do better next time.
SMH = shaking my head

I had to look it up......

Next time you walk to get a beer your azz is getting traded to the Falcons fan base.
