Saying that we barely lost to horrible teams does not support the thesis that we are on the verge of greatness.
I sense that we need a differential equation formulated in order to figure this out. Professor?

Re: Pigmy or Child

3 road games lost by a total of 6 = sleeping giants.

Next 5 weeks should tell us a lot (no **** sherlock) but it should be fun either way.

Re: Pigmy or Child

Prof, you think too much.

You, and this team, only need one thing:

OK, two things: and a badass run game.

Your failure to adjust your expectation to the current reality ---
does not an constitute a reason to set my hair on fire, too.

Re: Pigmy or Child

The one difference between the game against the panties and the previous 6 was that the team expected to win and played to close instead of hoped to win and played not to lose.

Good teams have that mentality no matter who the opponent. We've seen it only once in the Saints this season. One data point does not make a trend. 4 more does.

I'm not lowering my standards.

Re: Pigmy or Child

I understand your concerns, but there are signs of encouragement.

A lot of the Saints sloppy play wasn't in evidence.

The offense moved the ball well; even against a bad team, going 85 yds in 1:56 with ZERO timeouts and finishing with a touchdown before halftime is impressive.

Injuries are going to be the stumbling block now; hopefully 10 days rest is enough for Strief to be recover before the whiners game!

I generally agree with you, but I do think that "killer instinct" of expecting to win was evident in the GB game as well.

We did play "not to lose" in the ATL, CLE, DET, MIN, & TB games for sure...it was pretty obvious.

The argument can be made that the trend of "expecting to win" & "stepping on the opponent's throat" has been set sequentially between the data points of the GB & CAR games.

The probability of continuing this trend is even higher considering our next 3 games are in the Dome (where we definitely play better) to include factoring in this week's "mini-BYE" (to help us get healthier).

However, I got a "C" in Cal II, so I could be a factor of "zero" in this argument.

Re: Pigmy or Child

A win is a win no matter how far you have to bend over nor how far you have to reach to pull it out. just do not smell it and accept it for what it is

A win
