I thought our offense looked fine. Take way the underthrown balls and we put up 40.
He also thre some in places only the wide receiver could catch it.
Agreed he underthrew some, esp the ball that was intercepted.

I don't care if we won by one damn point. WE WON..... Were off on the right foot this season, and the Falcons are off to lick there wounds. They always play us tough in N.O. anyway.... Rome wasn't built in a day people. Brees is not going to be pinpoint accurate on every throw. I'll tell you what though, he placed that ball to colston on the 100 point mark on the dart board. You give him a steady running threat, and he's gonna be more accurate than not. No running game, the games are gonna be tight.

I would grade the Defense an A and the offense a C+
The thing our defense did that almost cost us the game was that they gave up the big plays. Nothing makes me pull the hair out of my head more than watching a Harry Douglas catch a long pass on third and long or watch Sjax run down the field.

[QUOTE=cmike;525112]On another note, Brees seemed to have lacked accuracy this game. He underthrew his man several times.

Not my words but a quote by another poster in this thread.

RR had a good first outing. He served his time in the JJones Prison. He was released because he was found not guilty.
