Yeah, I thought that was odd ... you can't leave Brady with a minute on the clock ... EVER. I still wasn't that panicky until Keenan Lewis had an opportunity to keep the Patriot receiver inbounds on the last drive and run a few more seconds off the clock, but seemed to pull him out of bounds to stop the clock.

It was a good test and a learning experience ... it'll keep the boys humble and focused.

Chins up, no shame.

Re: I'm afraid we're in trouble.

Well, to pick up on the discussion on the previous thread, aside from the Saints not being among the league/zebra favorables...

Jahri Evans seems to be getting his groove back...

But, we still can't run on the left side, we're still holding on the left side...

and I didn't think anyone could look worse than Zach Strief in footwork(God Bless him), but Charles Brown was awful yesterday...

Brees seemed rattled checking over his blindside often causing him to miss open receivers in his reads progression...

The sting of games continued with another hold penalty...

And there were the "Lookout" Blocks...

How soon till Armstead is ready or is he going to be an athletic Right Tackle?!?

Payton said at the beginning of the season he was losing sleep with regards to the Left Tackle position, which begs the question:

Did that factor into Payton's end-game playcalling and Brees inablity to gain his rhythm as well?!?

Re: I'm afraid we're in trouble.

I thought the O-line did Ok, there was some hiccups, but for the most part, they gave Brees plenty of time and were opening up some running lanes. I forget at which point in the game they posted the stats for QB sacks/hurries, but they were pretty lopsided in favor of the Saints/Drew ... I think Brady had something like 5 sacks to Drew's 1 and the pressure was on Brady far more then Drew all night, IMO.

Re: I'm afraid we're in trouble.

So now that we finally lost one, are we now in trouble? Or is this an opportunity from which to grow and get better as a team?

Are we still in trouble after this loss to Seattle?

We are in better shape now. A little humility goes a long way. I actually feel sorry for the Panthers at this point. And that is saying a LOT.

We're 9-3. We weren't in trouble to begin with.

Great job awakening a thread from the dead.
Would you like some ointment while you make love to this corpse?
