If there is no way they would've called it on the defense then that was not enough in my opinion to throw the flag. There is no way it should've been 14 to 0 when we are at home either though. Roger and them can hate all they want because we still win the division and just might get our revenge on SF when it truly counts.
Go to see an eye doctor, immediately!

Listen this loss hurt big time, Can't blame the refs for every freakin loss though. If you couldn't see the push off, wow

He pushed off, but that's a call they usually let go. It is what it is.

You're an LSU fan like me, obviously, so let me use lastnight as an example. On the last play of the game (which wasn't even a hail mary, but it was a desperation type of pass) Jennings throws it up and our receiver is getting run over by two guys, but because it is perceived as a jump ball by the refs, there was no flag. And that didn't surprise me, for that very reason. I expect that.

What Jimmy did was not nearly as egregious, and in fact, it was barely anything. And the fact that he clearly had position on the guy, I'd like to think a ref could use a little discretion in that situation, regardless of it being a hail mary or any other play. Your assessment seems based on technicality rather than the football play that it was. You gotta let them play sometimes, and that is undeniably a time where refs usually do. But they didn't, and that is very upsetting.

But it is not the only reason we lost, and I think we all realize that. But you know if anyone blames it on Drew they can't possibly be a real Saints fan in the eyes of many on this board. And if we blame it on Colston's drop, then we're just picking on a good ol' boy who is too nice to deserve criticism for yet another pitiful performance. Nobody is ever happy with any sort of analytical view point around here.

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

True. Although it stings.!

It also takes some luck. The Falcons won 11 games and the South a couple years back and most of it was luck and games that come down to one play.

Hell in 2009 we had the ball bounce our way a couple of times.

To say a game shouldn't come down to one play sounds nice and all but in reality many games do come down to one play.
Well, said, Dude. Nicely done. And, absolutely accurate. If even one important play tonight -- like the PI call hadn't happened -- we would all be talkin' about how great this team is.

Re: We get screwed again

we screwed the pooch and did everything we could to get blown out of that game.

but we hung in their against a team that tried to do the same. definitely not a niners "A" game out there either.

we lost because we did not play well enough to win. that was a game, we should have won this one easily.

we stunk up the joint

Re: We get screwed again

Brees got booed after the second interception
Defense got booed after the blown coverage

Sounds like the season ticket holders are pretty ticked off too, I don't blame them at all.

Re: We get screwed again

All I'm going to say about the call is that yes Jimmy touched him on his back yet he fell and landed on his back. If Jimmy's push is that hard he should have fell face first not be able to turn his body and land on his back. It's a call that is hardly ever made on the last play of the game.

Roddy White does the same **** to, that is his career, if he never did it, he be no more a WR than Nick Toon.

Re: We get screwed again

Tape don't lie.

Jimmy can claim two finders all he wants but its pretty obvious he was running for the ball and blatantly reached out to the side and put his hand on the DB's shoulder and pushed him. I don't think there was a need for it at all even.
