They had one more shot at controlling their own destiny today against a team they clobbered two weeks ago and they choked. Since a 5-0 start, the Saints are 5-5 in their last 10 games. It was a bad loss. It was a costly loss. Is all hope lost on the 2013 season? Of course not. But, the fat lady is humming.

Before this season started the last 5 weeks were identified as going to be damn rough.

People now seem surprised that they were rough.

Name calling is a fallacy and a sign of a weak argument. Put thought into your posts and make them interesting. I do find it ironic you don't take me seriously but conversely are taking the side calling people names seriously.

Perfect example see above ^
You are the namecaller here calling people clowns. Doesn't take much to see you troll your own teams' board harder than a falcon fan up in here.

Re: 10-5

We lost today because of the same 2 minute porous defense we have seen before.

We beat a team up for 58 minutes then in the last 2 mins we let them drive 80 yards for a TD.

I was asking the same question, did the defensive play-calling change or did the players not execute?

Our offense didn't help. Didn't finish it off earlier. Offensive execution cost us and costly penalites. The defense did run out of gas at the very end and we have seen this before. I'm suprised we didn't run a prevent d which killed us before. I think the only drive they had of the second half was he TD drive.

Oak, I'll say it again. With 1:54 left in the game we had a chance to run out the clock. A first down locks up the two seed and a bye for us. We go three and out. The Saints needed to get the first down and not GIVE the ball back to Carolina. The defense should never have been in a position to protect the lead again. Similar to the Patriot game in New England.
