Consider it buried. I'm not mad, just disappointed -- and I want us to at least consider the possibility of a perfect season -- I mean -- how does it happen otherwise?

I notice you aren't exactly a veteran either. And, I've been around here for several years -- just forgot my login so had to start a new account.

The Saints are trying to win every game until they lock up the top spot. They went for the unbeaten in 2009 when we still needed to prove to the world that we were a real contender, then got beaten by the Cowboys and gave up the ghost. This year you can bet we will play hard until (really, if) we lock up homefield, then we take our foot off the gas and prepare for the post-season. The Pats went 16-0 as a statement after Spygate, otherwise they would have done the same. A perfect season would obviously be wonderful, but no team will get there unless they are pushed to it by another team because the risk of injury, and missed opportunities to gameplan and come up with new things for games that actually matter, are simply not worth the reward. I totally get where you are coming from as a fan, but don't get emotionally involved in perfection because no team is going to chase it unless they have some other reason to do so.

Yeah, your points are well taken especially about injuries and risk vs. reward.

Re: Five and One

Glad to see the back of that "unbeaten" tag off of our shoulders, it just becomes a distraction for the team.

Credit to the Pats, they did their homework and it paid off for them.

Hope the nicks that DS and JG got are not serious, plus we get a break now, so hopefully any injuries we have get a good chance to heal!

Anyway, think positive, as I type this message we are 5-1 going into the bye week. Sounds real good to me!

Those of you that are not feeling too happy at the moment . . . . . . Well just be thankful that you are not a Giants fan!

GEAUX SAINTS!!!!

I wished we would have stayed with the run-game once it started to work. Anyway 5-1 is a great start!

Re: Five and One

Good loss for us going into the bye. The offense needs to gel and awaken. We learned some good lessons today. One is we can be beaten by a good team.

Yea, I'm disappointed as well. Would loved to have seen us blow the doors off of everyone this year. We're still in great position in the division as well as the conference. Hopefully the guys will learn from this and go on a tear the rest of the way.

I agree, but at this point I'm just glad the run game started to work.

I noticed that in almost every game I watched ... the refs are either overcompensating with the PI calls or missing obvious ones. I don't ever blame the refs for a win/loss, but the lack of consistency and then the apparent "make-up" calls are starting to get on my nerves.

Huge mental error ... it was at that point I conceded that Brady was going to perform another of his patented, last-second comebacks, . The boys were tired, they had given it all they had and crossed that line where physical exhaustion begins to affect the mental process ... <sigh>.

Both sides expected a better performance. HoF QBs and Coaches on both sides of the ball.
