The offense stunk but almost pulled out a win.

no one player is to blame. this was a unit failure.

if i was to point a finger it would be the OTs but they would not be alone. like i said the unit as a whole did everything to give the skins a blow out.

Three changes would make this a win.

1. Drews first interception.

2. Colston and Morgan each catch 4 balls that hit them in the hands.

3. Refs knew what pass interference was....
I'm with you on that third one X. I'm not going to blame the officials on this loss because I don't believe in that but that call changed the whole game in my opinion. We had a stop, you could feel momentum changing, no one knows what would have happened but that was just one play of many that can be pointed to today that contributed to our demise.

Well, im not a poosy. Ya'll can shame me to hell if you want, but, he looked like crap, today, too.

Sure, his protection in the pocket was shoddy all day, but, man. He made some horrible passes today and just couldnt seem to find open recievers. He completed what, 45% of his passes?

I know Drew can do no wrong. I love the guy. I named my daughter after him, but, he's gotta shoulder a lot of the blame today.
I'm not sure if you were in live chat today, but Drew got plenty of hammering by several people, including me. Our team sucked today, from the QB down to the frikkin waterboy. Now if I remember correctly though, I remember about a third of Drews passes dropped. How many receivers had BOTH hands on the ball and just dropped it. More than I can remember. Yes, Drew deserves blame for the game today, but save enough for the other 52 players, all the coaches, all the coordinators, everyone on that team, because they all sucked today.

Re: No ones going to point a finger at Drew, huh?

Colston fumbled in last year's opener and we lost that one by 8 also.

We have 5 RB's and we ran 10 running plays.

Our screens are why we're famous and they were nonexistent. At what point did we decide to revamp the most effective offense the league has ever seen? (See; Drew Brees passing record)

Ingram had better start earning his money. His Heisman is made of paper.

We over-utilized Graham and under-utilized Lance until it was too late.

I miss Robert Meachem.

We scored a special teams touchdown and still lost. Who does that?

Lofton is the future of the Saints LB corps. No doubt.

O-Line... Let's see, where to we start? LOL Didn't we have an O-Lineman in the Pro Bowl last year? Where'd he go?

I want to love Roman Harper, but REALLY, isn't he the same Roman Harper who was run down by a rookie QB and has he improved since Seattle? NO.

The only one who DID his JOB was number 5. I still won't say his name, sorry.

Drew is now worth 100 mil and now throws for 40-something percent completions? Jus' sayin... Maybe if he would have attended more of training camp? Maybe?

Props to RGIII. Wow. Composure under pressure.

I'm a SORE loser. No hiding that. Flame away. I'm a big boy.

Brees means so much to this team that I just can't bring myself to berate him for anything. Its sort of a non starter for me. What would you do - replace him with chase for the rest of the season?

Nope, he just had a bad game. So you just sit back, grin, and feel confident in the fact that he'll play better next week. He won't have two bad weeks in a row.

Cause he IS that good.
