Re: Five and One

We have one of these games every year with Payton and Brees. Too hard headed to come out and run the ball when you should be able to. Always wanting to throw the ball to prove you can. We had too many 3 and outs to start the game because we came out throwing instead of trying to establish the run which we should have been able to do with both Wilfork and Kelly out. We take the bad games with the good because this is the Payton and Brees mentality and it's usually successful. 13-3 New York bound.

That sounds good on the surface, and I applaud you for putting a positive spin on a negative situation, but I still don't agree.

We were much healthier than they were. If the Patriots had lost, I'm sure Belichik would have said there were no excuses. But as an outsider I can definitely say that they should have been at a disadvantage. They had some calls go their way, but even still, we left a lot of points on the board and did a horrible job against a bunch of no name receivers. Tom Brady might be a hall of famer, but we saw the Bengals show what even a hall of famer looks like without weapons.

They've struggled all year offensively, quite frankly. When it came to our defense, not only did they give up 30 points, but the Patriots dropped a ton of passes that would have made it worse. This isn't to take away from how the Saints have played overall. It's just that this particular game was a give away, and that's what's disappointing to me.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Five and One

Its more the way we lost than the loss that is disappointing.
Had it been a 10pt game its easier to say bad day at the office lets move on than a loss that was both self and officials imposed. Two years ago it was a loss to the Rams that in my opinion stopped a sevond ring.Both the Saints and 49ers finished with identical recirds but we ended up the third seeds and had to head to San Fran rather than host them.Had the game been at the dome we do not loose imo and would havr knocked the Giants off for another Superbowl appearance.

Im just hoping that defeat doesnt have similar reprocussions later

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Re: Five and One

There is no other possible loss on our schedule that could have less of an impact.
