And no team wins in the playoffs at Seattle. Regular season record means everything if it sends you to the Pacific Northwest in January.

It is disappointing to start 0 & 1. It puts you behind the Seahawks, 49ers, Panthers, Falcons....well you get the idea.

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.
Joe Horn can't be included in the list of great WRs for the Saints, he left and played for ATL.

I give credit to the Defense for the play on Colston more-so than him fumbling, but we are splitting hairs here...

We need to win on the road. I can't say it enough. Cleveland & Minnesota looked good today. And the Panthers are winning without Newton.

Don't believe that.

No one expected to the DBs to play this bad... no one.

I don't think we're splitting hairs. Colston didn't protect the ball. If he doesn't get blame for his fumble than everyone who cursed out Ivory should retroactively shut up.

I hope you're joking about Joe Horn. Playing a few games for the Falcons doesn't take away what he did for us. We didn't re-sign him and he went where somebody would employ him. He knows where his allegiance is.

Yes, losing sucks, especially against the turds but it's the way we lost that gets me the most. The complete lack of defense is just mind boggling. It stunk from top to bottom, game plan to execution.

Colston > Horn everyday of the week and twice on Sunday.

How many fumbles has Colston had in the last few years?

Side-note:
I loved Ivory.
