Re: I am sure the sky will be falling around here

Personally, not worried. Byrd and Robinson are new to the defense and they both need to learn their teammates and how they work together. Once they get acclimated to eachother, the defensive secondary will pick up

I was also down with the lack of production from Galette and Jordan, but Atlanta was basically taking everything from the Saints playbook and using people to chip them on the way out on their routes to disrupt both of our DE's. Ryan also made some plays with his legs to buy extra time. But again, not worried, it'll get fixed.

Offensively, really loved Cooks, he's a gamer. Was disappointed with Colston's three drops and fumble to seal the game. I think we all expect more from Colston, and I know he's disappointed with that fumble. I doubt he drops many more balls this season nor fumbles again.

Aside from Colston's three drops, Graham also had one that hit him in the legs, Morgan had a drop I remember... just not a great day overall for our receivers. But we still moved the ball pretty much at will so things will get fixed

Re: I am sure the sky will be falling around here

The Pats got their ass kicked today... do we really think they're not going to be very good?

I hate to say it, but what Colston did today is very much what I've come to expect. He's inconsistent catching the ball and has fumble-itis. I've said for years that Colston has a huge fumbling problem. You'd think he'd have a little more pride after all the past fumbles that he'd learn to cover up the ball by now. But, nope.

Re: I am sure the sky will be falling around here

I'm concerned about Ryan's reluctance to adjust. OK, we all know our D line was supposed to be great against an allegedly bad O-line...however, when the true nature of the game comes into focus, you better send the house if that's the only thing masking your weak backfield play, or you will lose.

At that point the risk/reward is reversed. You can try something different to get off the field, or you can continue beating your dead-horse game plan until you're standing at the podium glad handing your opponent and trying to think of adequate excuses because you KNOW you f'ed it up.

come on man....

Colston is hands down the best WR we have ever had. You can't blame him for 1 fumble in a game that you score 34 and lose... really...

It sucks, but we are the Saints and it is just one game. Next week we will be happy again

Regular season record is nothing. It's all bout the playoffs and no team wins in the playoffs without a D.

Re: I am sure the sky will be falling around here

The missed tackles was the most unbearable to watch. Even kv how is a sure tackle was missing tackles. Atl prolly has the best receiving group we will face all year but alot of stuff has to be cleaned up.

Come on, yourself, man. I already blamed the defense in a previous post. With colston I responded to what someone else said about his performance. And I stand by it. He fumbles a TON. If you don't know that then you either aren't watching very closely or you have a terrible memory. And by the way, as bad as the defense was, Colston DOES get part of the blame. You simply cannot make that kind of mistake.

I especially disagree that Colston is not only the best but "hands down" the best WR we've ever had. That distinction goes to Joe Horn.

Colston has stuck around a long time, which has allowed him to break his team records, and he's also had Drew Brees throwing to him. Think about that for a second. Colston has put up decent statistics in an era of offensive ecstasy. He's never been great. But my comments weren't really about where he ranks. He's got a fumbling problem and that is an indisputable fact. Period.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: I am sure the sky will be falling around here

This reminded me more of 2011 than 2012: game is close, Drew leads a game-winning drive, then the defense p***es it away.

I'll have nightmares of the SF playoff loss tonight since I didn't get to watch the game today.

Re: I am sure the sky will be falling around here

The thing that surprised me most was the complete absence of a pass rush except for TW -- our D upfront was unrecognizable. And, Atl O-line was supposedly not good.

Our secondary has problems -- I don't trust White or Robinson. I was not surprised at the secondary play, though.
