The Fact Of The Matter

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We played like we should have against Philly. We weren't really as good as we looked last night, but certainly better than we have most of the season. Its another step forward on a long journey....

What a difference a year makes. Reality sinks in but we still have a team that won a Superbowl so I'll take it. You know it may be farfetched but if we beat Atlanta and don't do anything else, Im still a happy camper.

Yeah because I care about the opinion of a person who supports getting rid of Brees for a defensive player.

Re: The Fact Of The Matter

Read all the comments, some I agreed with , others I didn't. Last night I think we played with the kind of fire and intensity I'm used to seeing out of this team.Defense is still porous but made plays when it needed to. Drew and the offense was sharp. And as far as the Denver debacle goes, I think they turned the corner on us and despite having a slow start are now one of the best teams in the AFC. Also don't forget who is coaching them. John Fox was a serious thorn in our side for many years as coach of the panthers. I think he knows how to play us pretty good.

Re: The Fact Of The Matter

I'll say it. Philly beat themselves. It was great to win a game but we give up that many yards running and total against Atlanta or almost any other team and expect to win is insane(?yeah you have to be with this team). Of course I'll take the win but I'm not gonna crown our Defense just yet.

Positives- More pressure plays from the defense and the offense was finally running balanced plays.

Ivory and Ingram look to have a personal battle going on. I say good.

Graham and Colston are back in form.

Lance still comes up big.

Brees was sharp in the pocket other than the lost fumble.

Re: The Fact Of The Matter

TBH the fumble wasn't even really his fault.
Brees is always looking down field to make a play. The guy has faith, confidence in his line.
The pocket just collapsed. It happens...
