Loss to pats on Payton and Brees

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I love this board but Halo's right. You'd think that the Saints were 1-4 like the Falcons and even if they were, we should see some better banter. Many of the discussions lately are weak and people want to blame ...

Re: Loss to pats on Payton and Brees

I love this board but Halo's right. You'd think that the Saints were 1-4 like the Falcons and even if they were, we should see some better banter. Many of the discussions lately are weak and people want to blame a team game on one person or the refs that were so obviously paid off .

I still love this team and have since they were 1-15 in 1981. We are lucky to have one of the best Head Coach/Quarterback combos in the NFL. Enjoy it, people!

Edit: By the way, the Saints are tied with the best record in the NFC. They are on track to end up with the #1 or #2 seed. Perspective...

Recent low completion percentage games are:
(Year; Game number %age)
2013:2 56.5%, Tampa
2012:13 56.0%; Atlanta
2012:8 52.4%;
2012:3 55.6%;
2012:1 46.2%
Drew Brees: Game Logs at NFL.com
Question. Were any of these also ego driven?

Well I have said for a long time that the loss to Atlanta last year was "ego-driven" because of the streak. The Falcons knew that Brees and Carmichael were gonna go for the TD pass, whenever possible, and they did a really great job of taking it away from him, and keeping the passing game in front of them. The Falcons had a "whatever you do, don't give up the big passing play" mentality on defense. The more the game went on, the more desperate Brees got, and next thing you know it was the badly forced two minute drive to end the half, and then it turned into interception city in the second half.

I don't think in the Graham case yesterday it was "ego." I think it was just, dependency --the thing has *always* worked before, and they had gotten a little too reliant on going to him.

Ego driven or not the only game we won on that list was this year against Tampa. Brees has a bad game and we lose (typically). It has been a great start to the season and being 5-1 at this point is better than I thought (4-2). We have an easy shot at the #2 seed, and we'll fight for #1.

One thing is for sure, had the NE game been played in the DOME we walk away with an easy win.

You don't hear a peep out of them while we're winning and they're getting their butts handed to them weekly. We lose one game and here they come. That's ok. 3 1/2. That's how many games y'all are behind us. How's the view from down there?

Re: Loss to pats on Payton and Brees

The game was lost 2:33 left to go in the game.

You don't give Brady to chances to win the game with only a 1 point lead. You get the first down... you take a shot at the end zone and go up by 8. Hell you could even go for two and make damn sure they couldn't beat you with a 8 point TD.

Learn a wise lesson from the fig tree, Grasshopper.

It takes an army to lose a battle. One warrior does not fail.
Do not become as the Texan fan, with their foolish tongues.

For they curse one warrior, who is then replaced by another,
who immediately throws a pick 6.

They rejoice when their own leader is wounded.
Karma has visited their house.

Remain wise & courageous.

BOOOOOOOOZH! (gong)

You know, I haven't heard Payton or Drew open their mouths about this game.

Who said that if his play calling doesn't get better he will turn it over (to Carmichael)? oh yeah, it was Payton.

Are you new, or do you not realize how well our offense has functioned when SP hasn't called the plays?
Hmmmm...good points. I just remember the losing. Retracted. Apologies.
