Fan Up!

The reactions to this loss sound exactly like the day after Seattle beat us, then we dismantled Carolina "the best front 7 in football" the following week.

We laid an egg. That's 3 this year. So we're Jecklel-Hyde on the road. It happens.

We're still a better team than Carolina until they prove otherwise. I don't think they can beat us.

There's only one NFC playoff team I currently think is better than we are... Seattle. We'll deal with them down the road.

For now, we've got a cat in the cross-hairs, and we will beat them. I have no doubt.

We're 10-4. We have a lot to be thankful for.

Let's finish strong.

Re: Fan Up!

I just dont know Danno....

Sean Paytons play calling is horrible.
Drew Brees is sketchy
Jimmy graham has been figured out.
We misuse 1/3rd of our players.

I dont think there are any other teams that would be willing to make a package trade for those three due to so much downside.

I doubt we could get Shaub, Griffin, and Kubiack for those three.

Yep. Pretty much sums me up I guess. This loss just didn't have much sting for me. Seattle? That one hurt like a mutha! This one? I don't know. Not so much really.

Like I told my Mom, of the one's we have left, next week is the one to get all hyped up about.

Re: Fan Up!

I am and will always be a Saints fan but these not showing up games on the road is killing me. Inside a dome when you almost have as many fans there as the home team and you play that bad when a win locks up a playoff berth. That was just pitiful. We have too much arrogance right now starting with Payton on down that we think all we have to do is show up to win. We need to play with some heart and emotion. The only emotion I saw yesterday was when the punter for the rams pushed Qudous(spelling) in the back and he ran after him and started a fight at the end of the game.

Re: Fan Up!

I agree. Look we always get pissed after such a loss. It's a guarantee. We should all be feeling sorry for Carolina. They had to get us after Seattle and now after the Rams. They are a punching bag.

Re: Fan Up!

People are overreacting. It was a bad game on the road, against a team we just don't match up well against. If we get curbstomped by the Panthers, then yes, you can start the doom and gloom. But it's premature right now.

Re: Fan Up!

We just need a 5 game winning streak. We can manage that. You know, as long as Drew doesn't give the ball away.

Re: Fan Up!

It all depends on what Saints team shows up, the Saints that we know are the Saints that have the communication breakdown I believe one recent thread said.
