this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; we only beat tampa because they laid down, that's what is worst about the entire thing. Tampa intentionally lost, had they not we wouldn't have won that game...

Yeah, I think because it was so long ago people forget that they laid down in the second half. We all talked about how obvious it was back then.

We might didn't lose by points but the saints lost that game. The Bucs didn't want to win that game, they pulled their starters in the second half and when it seems they were gonna still win they pulled their second string offensive lineman and put a player in with less than 5 game day experience which allowed Galette to get a safety.

If people on here say we should never lay down and lose, I'll say i will never would want to see us win a meaningless game like that.

Re: Saints 23, Tampa 20

Maybe a TD or sack enables a veteran to hit an earmark or make the PB but it doesn't happen because they are benched for backups. I know teams bench starters if they are in the Playoffs but that is a much different situation. Just playing devil's advocate here, something to think about if you are a veteran on a bad team. I would not want to lose a big incentive over a draft pick. I would be quite upset about it and would want to be traded if I missed it knowing I could have likely achieved it in two benched quarters.

Lying down is for QUITTERS, I don't care if TB "gave" the Saints that game. A win is a win in the NFL

They can't say much with the losing that put them in that situation in the 1st place. How would it look if you complain for incentives when you have the worst win/lost in league

Monday Nite game as well, time for the Saints to shine.

Arizona at their house can be a biotch though, .
