Its not THAT bad

We took them to over time in THEIR house. We screwed up by turning the ball over. No matter what some here might think the Falcons are a good team. A year before last they went 13-3 and were a few plays away from going to the Super Bowl. They have 4 pro bowl receivers so its no wonder our DBs looked bad. They are going to make a lot of defenses look bad. Our offense is looking awesome. Cooks looks as advertised and has all the potential to be ROY. We will destroy these guys in the Super Dome. We basically spotted them two scores and still took them to over time.

I think overtime rules blow. It should be like the playoffs so the first field goal can't win it unless the other team gets a chance and blows it.
Yea, I'm pissed, DOUBLE pissed because I had to watch this crap on DVR and couldn't go through it with my fellow Who Dates.
We have a playoff team and we will get at least one more shot at them.

Cant agree
If we end up as second second seeds like we did in 2011 we will look back on every stupid loss as one of the reasons if things do not go well. We need to get home advantage in the playoffs(assuming we get there)

Re: Its not THAT bad

Each and every season we look back on losses. Its what humans do, well Saints fans that are humans.

Its like trying to enjoy a Bourré game and my in laws are reliving hands from hours ago.

Re: Its not THAT bad

From a NOLA article:
"The Saints allowed 568 yards, the second-highest total in franchise history and a Falcons' franchise record. They allowed more yards on Sunday than ever allowed in a single game in 2012, the unit that set the record for most yards allowed in league history (7,042)."

It's not that bad huh... can't get much worse defensively.

Re: Its not THAT bad

It was a bad game, doesn't mean we have a bad team. We're still likely an 11-5 or 12-4 team.

We have 8 road games, we're simply 0-1 on the road

I am not going to really judge the team until after 4 games. Typically 4 games into the season you can see who is a contender and who are pretenders.

This isn't a good first showing, but if you have issues you want them exposed sooner rather than later.

D-backfields are similar to o-lines. They have to gel. Remember how long it took for out offensive line to gel last season? The Dallas game.

Look at how much wholesale change has happened to out defensive secondary, it will take a bit of time, and it helps a whole frikken lot when they have tape on a team to watch while preparing.

It may not happen over night, but it will.
