Re: Tell the truth!!

We were simply not the same team on the road as we were in the Dome in 2013.
There were no possibilities I could imagine in mind of us going all the way after the first Seahawk game which sealed our fate.

With that said, had the Superbowl somehow gone through the Dome, then the Saints would go all the way, at least to NY. It's just the nature of the beast and we are literally that good at home.

How we ended up playing in Seattle and how we hung in there and struck fear in the eyes of the Seahawks did something to this team. I think we will be hungry and prepared for a huge run next year.

I deep down, honestly believed that we could win that game if Sean Payton kept it together coaching-wise.

If we didn't try and get cute with the screen plays.

Re: Tell the truth!!

I believed we could win it. I thought we had learned our lesson the first time around, & had studied them -- I thought we had a good chance. I thought it would be our "Superbowl" and if we won, we would go to the SuperBowl and win. Looking back, now I think that was way optimistic, especially, the winning the SuperBowl part.

Now, I think that if the Seahawks get into the SB, they will lose. Live by the 12th man sword, die by it.

I believed we could win but wasn't going to be surprised if we blew it.

Re: Tell the truth!!

Yep. Thought we'd win.

Seattle scored their first 13 points by going 78yds on 17 plays... We truly have the game away.

Defense played it's best game. Offense, once again, sputtered and stalled.

Can't "believe" he even asked the question. I really can't "believe" it.

Re: Tell the truth!!

I thought we could beat them, heck if we play again next Sat/Sun I think we can beat them.
Seattle is a good team and they were better than us on that particular day.
There is nothing more to read into that.

Re: Tell the truth!!

Before the game, I was 50.5% sure that we were going to win.

At the end, when we got the on-sides, I was 75% sure.

Anyway, I give Sherman a big thumbs up for his interview after the game and the credit he gave the Saints.

Re: Tell the truth!!

Only if they played mistake free football, so I knew the chances were slim. But there was always a chance.
