Re: Questions from yesterday's game

short answer:

Saints had a long drive that fizzled out at the 1 yard line. Instead of taking the sure points with the field goal and making it a 7-6 game, Payton went for it. We predictably got stuffed. Then the defense gave up a long drive for the Bengals. That was pretty much the ballgame.

I knew when Payton went for it, it had massive potential to backfire on us. And it did.

Oh there is more ... Cooks is expected to miss up to 4 weeks with a broken thumb.

Yeah. So now we have:

1. Colston... anyone know how many drops he's had this season so far??
2. Stills - legit
3. Meachem - a whole 5 catches on the season
4. Toon - 0 receptions on the year
5. Morgan - 1 reception on the year

Outside of Colston and Stills, our WRs have 6 catches. Yeah, our season got a lot worse without Cooks now

1. It looks like we couldn't get the offense working, what went wrong and what went right (if anything)?

2. How'd the offensive line play? Saw Brees had no sacks, but was he under a lot of pressure? If so, was it the middle of the line again?

3. Looks like we couldn't run the ball for the first time, what were the issues leading to that?

4. Were there many dropped passes by our WR's?

5. We only had one turnover it seems (Cadet football), how'd that happen?

6. How did the defense play overall?

7. Saw some highlights, looked like Dalton just had some perfectly thrown balls even with good coverage. Was it like that all game?

8. Was the D-line able to get pressure on Dalton? I saw only one sack

9. How'd our DBs play? Who did well and who did poorly?

Thanks everyone, really appreciate your feedback #WhoDat
Yes coach Payton - we saw it all.

Good point. I just hope this doesn't lead to Brees targeting Jimmy Graham 945 times a game and throwing picks into double/triple coverage.
