The reports of the Saints' death have been highly exaggerated. Drew Brees earned a QB rating of 140 with 5 touchdowns and no turnovers to lead the New Orleans Saints in a dominating win over a very sloppy Pittsburgh Steelers team. The Saints didnít throw to Jimmy Graham who was double teamed all game. That opened up the gate for Ben Watson, Marques Colston, Erik Loring and Nick Toon to each haul in Touchdowns for the Saints.

Although Ben Roethlisberger passed for 435 yards and two touchdowns, he also threw two interceptions for the Steelers against a bend but donít break defense that played an imperfect but much improved game. Roethlisberger finished with a QB rating of 76.

The final score was much closer than expected due to some questionable penalties and "garbage" yards and points. At 35-16 with 6 minutes left, the game was way out of hand. The Steelers closed to 35-24 at 2:37 left after a questionable illegal use of the hands call against Keenen Lewis on a pass which brought the Steelers to the Saints 8 yard line and eventual score. Steelers final score came with :04 seconds left and the onsides attempt failed - end of game.

I've complained about Toon for a long time, But I'll give credit where credit is due - He worked for his first professional TD, he earned every single yard of it, was a sweet score.

Kenny stills was the man today, big time numbers - 162 yards on 5 catches and a TD.

Brees played well when goodwin wasn't letting people run free at him.
Even though Goodwin did it for most of the game (please put lelito in!!!!)

I don't get it, Lelito has shown himself better than the aging Goodwin, yet we refuse to play him. One thing I dislike with Sean Payton's team is, again, the player loyalty. Should be "you play to win the game" and "best player starts at each position" but sometimes we try to give the old starter the benefit of the doubt and SP gets blinded by that. Goodwin was weak link today and has been for some weeks.

Much like when Will smith was here in the final few seasons, we had younger players that were much better than him yet Will Smith was on the field doing absolutely nothing every week.

Best news is we have Carolina at home next week and I feel we're going to take care of business.

Today was the last BIG competitive game I saw on our schedule. The rest is NFC South rivalry stuff which I believe we can kill it on the way out. Chicago has proven time and again they like to get spanked like school children.

Preseason I thought the BIG competition world beater games (not the most important, just best teams) would be - Ravens, Steelers and Green Bay. What's funny is we went 2-1 in those games and screwed the pooch against lesser teams on the downturn would should have destroyed. Very Sean Payton-esque.
