There were several third downs where I saw a receiver open at the sticks, but Drew would just automatically throw a two yard pass (usually to cooks, it seemed). Of course, the interception in the endzone was terrible as well. They were trying to blame it on colston just because he looked upset, but Drew kind of threw that up blindly. At least look at who you're throwing to.

Very glad for the win, but I'm annoyed with the way the offense took their foot off the gas. Between that and Breaux falling down, this should have been a 35 point win.
that pick was on Colston on he thought Bree's was prolly going to throw it away so he flattens his route and stopped running but if he had kept running to back of the end zone he either would have caught it or dropped it , it wouldn't had been a pick though

Brees had at least 3 balls sail on him with Cooks running across the field with green ahead. Just happy for the win.

Re: SAINTS @Colts Gameday Thread

A lot of what I saw from the Saints today was very positive!

I did begin to wonder, as the game headed into the 4th quarter, if we were
about to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory but thankfully we held on for the win!

Shame the Falcons managed to sneak a win also though!

GEAUX SAINTS!

We came away empty after two huge plays, we won that's the main thing but we really started killing ourselves in the second half.

Ingram ran a 50 yarder and then Brees threw the pick
Later brees hit Cooks for 40+ yards and then we started going backwards.

I know that's what the announcers were suggesting, and I saw that, but it was still a bad throw. The corner was camping out behind Colston, and if Colston had seen it and gone for it, there's a good chance he gets laid out bad. Brees didn't even look, from what I saw. He spun around and just threw it up. That's never a good idea.

Agree. Today was an off day for Bree's. Not sure if his shoulder is 100% on deep throws.

Re: SAINTS @Colts Gameday Thread

I have watched the first half so far and wow. That is as good as I have seen the Saints play on both sides of the ball (granted this is my second full season of supporting them).

Kikaha and Anthony are picking the game up very well.

By much of the commentary on here, Brees must fall away in the second half (like most of the team) because I thought he was solid in the first half. Many of His incomplete passes so far have been catchable.

It's amazing how much momentum we got toward the end of the first quarter. We were unstoppable. Makes me think that half of it is between the ears.
