I don't know about that. Maybe last minute collapses might be a different stat, but generally speaking, the Saints do REALLY WELL at home in prime time, in a game after a disappointing or lackluster loss the week before.

Last year, we lost to the Jets on the road in a feeble, fairly miserable effort, then shellacked the Cowboys at home the next week under the prime time lights. We lost to the Bucs on the road in 2011, the time when Payton broke his leg during the game, then we obliterated the hapless Colts the next week by 62-7 or whatever it was. In 2010, we lost that stupid moronic game to the Browns, and then trounced the Steelers at home (that one wasn't a high scoring game but it was pretty epic).

Like I said, maybe last-minute collapses is a different stat. I think a bit more often than they don't, Payton and the Saints seem to turn it around at home in prime time, after they have one of those type of games the week before. We collapsed on the final play against the Patriots last year up in Foxboro, then came back after our bye in the Benz and waltzed all over the Bills. 35-17.

I'm not down playing anything. Our record is abysmal this year. Whoever called it a dumpster fire was spot on. LOL.

But, and this is a BIG but, our record is not who this team CAN BE -- THIS YEAR. And, that is what is frustrating -- to everyone. That this team is blowing a shot at the playoffs and maybe even a SB run. I know, I know -- we are who our record says we are -- and in this moment -- it's true. But, it doesn't HAVE to be. Not like freaking Tampa or Oakland for Christ's sake. We are not those teams. We are just playing like it right now. This ship CAN BE righted. It hasn't sailed ---- YET.

Sunday night, we''ll see.

Commit to improving in 2015 = not embarrassing yourself.

It would be interesting to know where we are ranked in regard to giving away penalties this season.
Welcome, mate! We need a bit more Oz around here. Fair dinkum on the penalties. Makes you wanna blow some kerbside quiche.

Re: I wouldnt write the Saints off just yet

play with desire and pride would be the place to start
this defense looks scared and so does Rob.
I swear we are in a prevent form of defense 60% of the time.

(I didn't believe it so I went back and checked the box scores for the Saints games this season and the number is correct)
Thanks for that.

That doesn't tell the whole story. Of those penalties how many led to a touchdown drive. I bet that ratio would be damning.

Against Detroit I recall a penalty on a third down (which we had covered prior to the penalty) which I think resulted in a touch down drive.

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda! Playoffs, Playoffs!! We're entering miracle status. As in it'd be a miracle if we turned this season around. We need Ingram to go off.
