New Orleans Offense - 34 points, 472 yards, 30 minutes TOP, 60% 3rd down conversion, 5 yards per carry, 8 yards per pass...

Sorry, but I really can't take anyone seriously that points a finger at the offense, especially when our defense gave up more yards than any game during the historically bad 2012 Spags season.

Offense - A minus
Defense - F

Re: Brees turnovers

We all know Brees is going to force it a few times each game; that one just happened to cost us. Even if we get three there the games ends differently (albeit maybe the same outcome).

Brees was not perfect, but with what we have invested on defense right now, he shouldn't have to be.

Re: Brees turnovers

Brees and the offense was the only reason we didn't lose by 3 scores.

Re: Brees turnovers

I didn't see the 3 safety look. Maybe I'm wrong. I just didn't see it.

What I did see was decent run defense and really bad pass coverage. I expected our defensive line to make more of an impact than what they did. One sack...from a backup?

I know we rarely blitzed but our defense was not very aggressive.

I'm not freakin out. There's no need to. But I hope RR gets that D back to what they were doing last year. That was terrible.

The offense is the ONLY reason we were in the slightest position to win. We weren't stopping them so all they could do is keep up with them offensively which they pretty much did. When an offense scores 30 points still loses the game how in the hell is it the offenses fault? Any other team in the league would not have had the slightest chance to win against the falcons if their defense performed as bad as ours did. We almost won in spite of them.

Re: Brees turnovers

This could possibly be the most ignorant thread I have read. The offense had almost 600 yards. The defense gave up 600 yards. Any questions?

And I did not have a healthy bowel movement today. WHO CARES! They ran for 3tds and 150 yards. Drew threw for 335 yards and a td. What the hell were you watching????????? The defense made Matt look like Brees/Manning/Brady. That is why they lost. Why does some retard always blame Drew or Payton???????

After the Brees interception, people are choosing to ignore that ATL drove 80 yards down the field.

Yet some people want to blame that on Brees. I just don't understand that.

Wait, so the offense has to take the blame for bad special teams?

Care to explain that one further?
