Re: Saints should be embarrassed by ugly performance vs. Bengals

It was the first time this season that I have heard the Saints radio commentators say that the team looked "Uninterested" and "Lethargic".

Not sure what to draw from that statement but I wonder if all is well behind the scenes.

The Dome used to be a place that teams would not look forward to visiting but I'm now guessing the Ravens must be rubbing their hands and licking their lips at the prospect of giving the Saints another possible loss!

Never easy being a Saints fan but I will always be one thats for sure. Just don't see where the next win will come from though!!!

GEAUX SAINTS!!!

7 series - 10 points. Pitiful performance at home. Yes our Defense is terrible but if our offense puts some points on the board it actually may help our defense.
You will not score tons of points when in order to do so you have to sustain 14+ play drives...you simply wont....period...not even Manning and Brady. We have to figure out a way to make big plays in the passing game...

The long run allowed at the end of the first half was inexcusable. But other than that the defense wasn't that bad until late when they were out of gas. Out of gas because we can't move the ball.

You know as well as the rest of us how much money is invested in this offense. They are SUPPOSED to carry us, while we hope for the best from our D. They have failed for the vast majority of the season to do so.

This team has become a sitcom that I binge watch for three hours.

Are you nuts? Allowing 9 of 13 third downs to be completed is inexcusable... Quit trying to start arguments...

How is making a point starting an argument? You are an overgrown child, man. third down's are a meaningless statistic if you're keeping your opponent off the scoreboard. You can go 2-3 on third down on a single drive and not score. As long as you aren't giving up huge plays, you have a chance to get stops. It was a low scoring affair for the majority of the first three quarters before it got away. Our defense didn't have any rest the whole game. Did they play great? No. Did they give up a couple of ridiculous plays? Yes. But we kind of expect that, don't we? Likewise, we expect the offense to do something, which they emphatically did not do.

You want to know how much third down means? We were 8-13.... didn't feel like it, did it? Know why? Because we didn't do anything to follow up those conversions, just as was the case for the Bengals much of the time, only they made a couple big plays and we just never answered.

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

Where was the hustle

We are down 17 with 8 minutes left and we go dink dunk and huddle

No drive

There was no desire
