And this is the problem.
If the risk had paid off we would be marching to the superbowl on the boards now. Maybe our expectations had just gotten a little too high. After all, this is the same team that started 0-4. We still have a chance at a wild-card slot, but let's be real, it's a long-shot. I'm still pumped about the improvement in this team in a short time.

My point was that after 5 losses (and some wins) where the defense was an AWFUL, PATHETIC MESS that cost us games (or almost did), that was not the case yesterday.

99 out of a 100 times we can't afford for Brees to be anything less than perfect to have a chance to win due to the defense. Yesterday may have been that one time where he could have played it "safe(r)" and the defense helped get the win.


I would love to visit an alternate universe where we called a couple of Ivory runs or a pass into the end zone at least (less likely to be a pick 6) and that game goes to the half at Saints 14-7.

Something tells me that we win that game 28-21...
Some people are saying exactly that arsaint. Not you, but there are some here who have an agenda that involves hating Drew Brees. They have the right to think whatever they want and to put it out there but they need to be called out.
