Motivation hasn't been the problem. Execution has been the problem.

Re: Indifference or Motivated? CIN @ N.O.

Andy Dalton needs to be pressured fast and early. Have watched a few Cincy games and he gets flustered and starts making mistakes. The Bengals have a pretty good Defense and will be hard to break down.
The motivated team will grab this one good thing this ones in the Dome
the 12th man will help.

Sunday is when we begin to distance ourselves from the rest of the poo.

But we're not poo.

We shall win, going away.

I have guaranteed it.

I'm 50% on this. Lack of execution...absolutely. Dropped passes, busted coverages, missed tackles, etc.

Motivation? I just don't think they have it. The best this team has played was against GB & Carolina. 4-4 was an absolute must to stay in the playoff picture instead of porking away playoff hopes at 3-5 or 2-6. When we were 2-4 after Week 7, CAR was 3-3-1 so we grabbed the Pack & the Panties by their noses and we kicked their sorry butts. Like champions do.

The follow-up to this glorious 2-game outburst was that flaming bag of turd we dropped on Sunday...in the freakin' Dome...to the Whiners, no less.

And does anyone else feel like I do that if there was one other team in this division sitting 2 or more games above .500 that we'd also be playing better football and being right there hanging with them?

The Saints should be motivated by just watching yet another win slip from their fingers against SF.
If they continue to stumble, ATL or more likely CAR could slip ahead.

Re: Indifference or Motivated? CIN @ N.O.

My answer is yes. The team has played hard in every game except for Dallas. We could be the winner of the ATL game, the Browns game, the DET game, and the 49ers game (all close games where we fought hard but goofed up somewhere and lost). The team is in it to win it. We just need to stop shooting ourselves in the foot. I think we win 1 of the next 3 and then win out and get a playoff berth as the NFCS leader.

Re: Indifference or Motivated? CIN @ N.O.

It will be interesting. The 49ers lost Willis, the Cards lost Palmer, and the Seahawks lost Mebane over the weekend. Can the Eagles keep it up for the rest of the season? Will Romo finish the season? The Saints are banged up, but still in it and fighting. Who knows where they will wind up? I say NFCS division winners.

Ain't nobody should be laughing. The football gods are smiling on New Orleans and smiting the rest of the NFC South, it definitely could happen ... and then what? Who's gonna' want to go to the Dome and play the Saints as a wildcard? Nobody. Been there, done that, .

Re: Indifference or Motivated? CIN @ N.O.

Against the Bengals today? Indifferent

They got whooped in all 3 phases and drop this one by 3 scores. At home. For the 2nd straight week.

If you think today was a "motivated effort", I'd hate to see a less-than-motivated effort.

Pure garbage.
