Re: Why did we struggle against the Bucs ?

Why did the 7-0 atlanta falcons lose to the 2-5 saints last season?

Bucs had homefield advantage, our O was struggling big time upfront, they still believed in their coach

Schiano has lost that team now

8-0 to 5-3. But yes, myself and the other guy I was flying to Afghanistan with (he's from Atl) were both taken aback by that game.

Casillas was an IR waiting to happen.

bucs are a good team and came out of the gates fired up. now they are a team that limps on the field from shooting themselves in the foot game after game after game.

they have beaten themselves up and are a mess

Check your records brother.

It was week 10
Saints record 3W-5L, we had only beat the Chargers, Bucs, and Eagles before playing Atl.

Re: Why did we struggle against the Bucs ?

Its a short week for one, where Carolina is better and the bucs are coming off a road game they tried to win and lost a rb. Thats basically why. And Freeman was better, but bucs decided they wanted to be aggressive on defense and I preached this so often before, when you play aggressive on defense, the other will return the favor. Freeman could not handle the elevated pressure as a result of his revamped defense. The bucs were in deed still playing for something week 2. Different now.

I just hope this 9 days rest Carolina plays like this against the falcons.

Re: Why did we struggle against the Bucs ?

Carolina is a division rival too of theirs(and ours) but the bucs were more p!ssed off at us because we swept them last year, whereas Carolina got swept last year.
