Re: I couldn't watch most of the game can someone please tell me

The Saints were amazingly lucky today. Good thing Drew was on fire and threw zero picks. If Drew had thrown a pick 6 or an interception in our end of the field, at any point in the game, we would be sitting around groaning and moaning about the usual ugly defensive collapse right about now tonight. The defense gave up THREE scores in the 4th quarter. I wish the team good luck with playing like that against Atlanta or Carolina, both of whom we've lost games to in the final minutes, when Drew throws picks earlier in the game (Carolina in Carolina last year, and the season opener against Atlanta this year). You can call it garbage time or garbage points if you want, but Drew handed the Saints a 15 point lead late in the 3rd and our wonderful defense very nearly puked it away.

We dropped into a prevent with 9 minutes to go. Yes, it was ugly but its not as bad as it looks on paper.

Our defense played a mediocre game (an improvement) and our offense was practically flawless.

Dude, I've tried to explain that to them in 2 other threads, they won't listen lol

It's literally like they'd be happier if we did lose, this year I don't care how we win, any win is good enough for me.

The game was over after we scored to make it 35-16. Nothing that happened after that really counts. We played soft prevent, they got 2 scores and conversions. Big whoop.

We only lost to the Ravens last MNF by 7 points, but was that a close game? Of course not, they destroyed us. Same thing here. We pretty much whooped their butts and then gave up garbage time points to make it look close.

All this talk about how horrible our D was today. I must've watched a different game. They weren't perfect by no means today but they looked better than they have for most of the year. I swear some on here would complain if the sun rose in the west tomorrow.

Yeh I agree.

While we could have landed a heap more interceptions, we got 2 or 3 more than any other game this year.

Except for the last 2-3 minutes, where we put the cue in the rack (and the game was over), I thought the D held up pretty well.
