3 missed FGs
67 total non-scoring drives
308 points
133 second half points, 62 points in second half in losses, 49 points scored when down by >14, all losses.

Same offense as last year, as year before, and year before, minus one guard and one head coach, but same OC, OLC, RBC QBC.


I'm not saying, I'm just saying. 11 games into the season, it's not about Sean Payton.

Guess what? We're 20+ million over the cap next year. We're going to lose a LOT of key personnel. This is going to be as good as it gets for a while!

I hear it every year and Loomis bytchslaps it back in all the doomsayers faces.

He can make up 20 million by cutting or restructuring 3 or 4 players.

Its a non-issue.

I sure hope not.

Not jumping on any bandwagon, but Brees was the single biggest reason why the Saints lost to the 49ers this Sunday, IMO.

Especially that Brooks pick 6 was just unforgivable, without it, the Saints would've gone into the halftime with a TD lead and with the momentum on their side.

Still, as angry as I was with some of Brees' decision-making in that game and with the mistakes that followed... his positives far outweigh his negatives, even with his price-tag.

If us losing all these games is Brees fault well gah we should just cut him .... Maybe dallas will cut romo and we can get a real leader at QB man hope that works ! BLLAHHHHHH !!!!!! Yes the game yesterday Those pick 6 killed us.... but gah blaming all these games we lose on brees is idiotic !

When your defense holds the opponent to under 20 and you lose then you start to look to blame something other than the defense.

You're going to find a handful of games where you can squarely blame Drew Brees for the loss - a light handful.

We have become SO spoiled here. The ONLY player I'd even consider swapping for Brees is Brady, and I don't think I'd make that swap either.

Without Brees the Saints would be bottom feeders

I said he tend to be like farve at times... but noway am I jumping on the 100% Blame Drew Brees bandwagon. Saints would be bottom feeders without him, that being said I wouldn't trade him for any other QB past or present.
He'll fix this... he always does

Not to be insulting but I think anyone who doesn't realize that the only reason this game even mattered is pretty much because of Brees in the first place is simple minded.

What do you think our record would be if Cam Newton was our QB? Or Josh Freeman? Or Mattyboy?

We lost a game to one of the best teams in the league and possibly THE best defense. Brees made a bad decision on one play and was off target on another and now every other post is about how Brees is the problem and he's a selfish player who is going to cost us our future.

What a bunch of whiny ingrates! Without Brees we'd be lucky to have two wins. Even great QBs have bad games.

I was just thinking about all the speculation about SP leaving for Dallas and I look at this Saints team. Terrible defense in need of major overhaul (Not SP's Specialty). Offensive line beginning to crumble and laden with over paid players. Looking at losing a lot of players on defense and a few on offense next year. That's not a very tempting outlook to draw SP back to NO. He'll have just as much and maybe a little more talent in Dallas and only needs to get a QB and a couple players to jump right back into the playoffs and be sucessful with a second team. I'm starting to get nervous about this situation. If SP doesn't want to coach more than another 5 years, Dallas just may be his best bet to get back to winning again. Our team is starting to look like a team in decline.
