No fumble is a good fumble regardless of the time it occurs. We can't look at the last play and say "hey this is why we lost right here, this last play". There was an entire game before that fumble.

Going to go back to work and eat crow... I boasted about the Saints D and we are the worst in the league. Yes, statically we will be the worst D in scoring and yards after week 1... not a good feeling.
Right, and no one said we lost the game on this last play. I mean, technically it was the biggest play that lead up to losing, but we all know we should have blown them out if our defense had shown up at all. Just because some of us bring up a certain play or player doesn't mean we're blaming the whole game on them.

His amount of fumbles are a lot for a receiver. If a receiver gets 10 touches in a game it's big news. If a running back gets 10 touches, he's a third down back.

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

Actually, in the first half the Byrd turnover was the only real difference maker. In the second half, not being able to get a stop upfront or in the backfield was the difference maker.

There were a handful of problems on offense -- but, those will be corrected.

Speaking of corrections, I have a feeling that RR is going to be chewing some tail on the plane ride home.

I blame Mike Greenburg (sp?) from Mike and Mike. I just remembered he picked the Saints for the Superbowl. There's a reason his picks have #kod attached. We may not win a game all year. :P

He should start by looking in the mirror and chew his own arse out.

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

Overall our offense looked great. The turnovers hurt bad, but we moved the ball at will and did so in whatever fashion we felt like. I just still can't believe how lifeless this defense looked. It seems like everytime we think we're going to have a dominant D we suck. And when we have low expectations they are good, kind of like last year.

I hope very badly that this was an aberration. 568 is a big number for an aberration, but stranger things have happened.

Well I worry some, Atlanta just give every team in the NFL the blueprint when we play that style of D. Ryan need to take care of this quick because it could lead to a domino effect.It was very poor showing on the D and Ryan.

I blame the def. line coach on his late rotation with players & their conditioning:defensive line being so quick to fatigue
