Go trip with the Falcons about next year.
I don't think you understand what Oak meant by what he said. We would all like to team to be undefeated through the Superbowl. That isn't going to happen. It's like the great post earlier on, we get to fall off the radar, heal, learn from our mistakes, and prepare. It was a great game. The end was funky but we took their TO's and it came down to 1 play that Greer almost made. The team will be better for it.

This guy doesn't understand what anyone meant by what anyone said.

Re: Five and One

We're gonna fall in the "Power Rankings"...big whoop. We don't play next Sunday, so forgotten for a while. We play the Bills at home against ?QB? on the 27th. We're gonna fall way off the radar in the national media, where we thrive. We get healthier for a stretch. Anybody remember that this is a Payton-coached Saints team? After a loss, with the next game in the dome after a bye week? It makes a HUGE difference.

And for those worried about the D...J. Jenkins didn't even play (if he did I completely missed it). It was almost like Payton and Ryan were handicapping us to get Bunkley more snaps at nose tackle. Saving Jenkins? Yep, considering the amount of snaps he's had to take so far this year, plus he is a rookie and we'll need him for that NOV-DEC time. It was like they kept J. Jenkins playing time this game (if he even played at all) minimized in respect for the long haul to get Bunkley more snaps and up to game speed. I'd rather have a fresh rotation of Bunkley, Jenkins, and sometimes Hicks at the nose in NOV-DEC.

This is a marathon, not a sprint and you don't show your hand this early in the year. Kinda like a pseudo pres-season game in a way since it was an AFC team and we were already 5-0. Of course you go for win each and every time out, but we did not go "full-out" in this lesser-of-importance of a game in respect to the long haul...and that's the way I sees it. If it had been SEA or SF, you would have seen us throw the house at them from both sides of the ball. It's called hiding tendencies.

Re: Five and One

No shame in losing to Bill & Tom. None. Regardless of their supporting cast.

If anyone had told me we'd be 5-1 and leading the division at the bye week I'd have said, "yeah. Giddyup!"

Hate to lose. Hate to lose even more when we blew it. But we didn't blow it this time to some unknown QB who's gonna be out of the league next year. We lost to the leagues best over the last few years.

I'm already over it. Looking forward to the break and getting back to bid'ness in a couple weeks.

Frankly, I don't see how going unbeaten happens any other way -- than to expect it, practice for it and believe, that with the right preparation and some luck, it could actually happen. It seems to me that any other way of thinking -- will produce losing results.

So, yes, if we are unbeaten, I expect that since we are playing very well -- that at least it is possible for us to go unbeaten. And, being unbeaten, is, of course, the only way you could get to a perfect season. We almost did it once before -- why shouldn't I think it is possible?

Where are the Saints pessimists boards? You should meet over there.

Look, I'm not going to get into a pissing match with you. I am not a Saints pessimist. I, too, was hoping for an undefeated season. Yes, we go into every game with the idea of winning them all. But unfortunately every team has a down game or two. You are right in that we were playing well enough that it was starting to look like a reality. But losing today is also just that, reality. I was not saying an unbeaten season wasn't possible but seeing as an unbeaten regular season has only happened what, twice and only once has a team run the table all the way to the Super Bowl the odds aren't exactly in one's favor. I notice you are new here and we all generally respect each other's opinions here whether we agree with them or not. But you attacking me like you did was uncalled for. I was trying to make light of a tough loss and the reaction of some to that loss. So as for me I would just as soon bury the hatchet and move on from here as fellow Saints fans who are passionate about our team.

Re: Five and One

I had it dead on at 5-1 going into the bye week. http://blackandgold.com/saints/59832...rediction.html (God help the optimist...GAME BY GAME PREDICTION)

We are in GREAT shape now. Got the bye, get healthy. With the exception of Seattle we are easily better than every team on the schedule for the rest of the season. And I think we're probably better than them too, by a little.

Re: Five and One

Wonder if Lewis got a talking to about chucking that guy out of bounds to stop their clock.

He did have a int. But that play and the PI in the end zone seem to make you forget about it.
