Saints 23, Tampa 20

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I cannot believe some people are still whining about this game. The game was played in what, December, and it is now April. The Saints are getting ready for the draft. Saints won the game because the Bucs laid down. ...

I cannot believe some people are still whining about this game. The game was played in what, December, and it is now April. The Saints are getting ready for the draft. Saints won the game because the Bucs laid down. It is old news. Please, please get over it.

Not sure I like that mindset in the locker room.
Draft posistion is next year. Anyone remember Finish Strong?

Ask the Raiders, Cleveland, Jacksonville etc how those early picks are helping them win championships. The Patriots pick late damn near every year & they don't seem to have a problem finding talent.

That comes from a winning culture.

We are the real losers of the Tampa game. Tampa worked us until the 4th qtr, proved to themselves they could win if they wanted it then pulled their players and just ran it up the gut 3 downs and punted.

Everyone would be pissed if Brees got injured playing in a meaningless game yet no one cares winning that game might have cost us Beasley or Shelton. Instead we are hoping someone drops, shortsighted thinking at it's finest.
Now that Brees is older I sure hope Payton will start pulling him out once the game is out of hand. When we are up 3 scores with 3 minutes left and a decent running game there is no reason for him to be out there. Same thing when we have already lost. No reason to save face by putting the face of the franchise at risk.
