Re: New Orleans Saints fans dish on the losses that lingers

Every loss we ever had since we have been in the league, more so the years before 2006, one disappointment after the other year after year. When we lose now it's just not as bad as that because we have hope. I've always wondered if Manning would have had any type of O-line in his prime how good could we have been or how far we could have gone, glory days.

If that's the game I think Ditka managed the clock like a sun dial.

Wait.. the headline says "the losses that lingers"?

Wow.

Should of went to school, Gary, or you was not payin' attenshon.

As for losses that linger, nah. No loss lingers for me. After all, football is just entertainment.

36-32 we lose. A turnover didn't cost us the game. The D coordinator did.
I must disagree. One series or even a couple of plays don't win/lose a game.
Our offense had 5 turnovers. That is unacceptable. In the history of the NFL I'd imagine 5 turnovers loses about 99% of the time. Our defense was the only thing that kept us from getting blown out by 4 scores.

Blaming that loss on the defense is absurd.

It wasn't the defenses fault it was greg williams going full boar blitz for the big play for the whole drive when a prevent would have easily shown up Smith's qb
Deficiences. The players did their part, were stuffing GOre and we still were ahead.

Only time I felt Jimmy Graham scored too early

Worse part is we had crushed the NY Giants a few weeks earlier and we would have rolled

Thomas knocked out having a concussion that wasn't flagged really hurt us

I hope we get the whiners in the playoffs ncc in the dome

Seattle playoffs 2010

No running backs

Reggie can't get a half yard

That 12 miss tackled run that put us out of it


This beating by Seatle two weeks ago could linger but I actually feel it will make us stronger and the future victories oh so sweet

How about losing two second round draft picks because of an overblown story. It still stings and I can't wait till the day Goodell leaves.
