"Laid down?" or "couldn't get the job down?"

We obviously knew how to get the job done -- since we did it in the first half. Same players and coaches on the field. So, I'm sorry but, something went wrong. What about us being a professional team and making adjustments. It just bothers me -- when we already know we have what it takes to crush them. It is the SAME GAME. Week to week is different -- different week, different injuries, different opponent. But, in the SAME GAME?!? Sorry, they don't get a pass.

And, of course, I am happy we won the game. I am happy about any game we win -- the way this season started. If we get into the playoffs, I will be elated and will believe this team is aptly named.

Commit to improving in 2015 = not embarrassing yourself.

Talking about trickeration. I really like the part about Brees acting on the sideline.

The amount of verticality during the physicality of the trickeration which of course was the personification of the relation to a win! Do the games the Saints "Coulda" won cancel out the one's they "Woulda" won? Seems it "Shoulda." That sounds so familiar......Playoffs! Playoffs?

After 2009, Sean Payton seemed to lose his gambler-mode. It's back and, I think, it is inspiring confidence. I didn't like the challenges today ( especially the first one ) -- but to me it just signaled how committed Payton was to win at any cost and Payton trying to do everything he could.

Re: #2: I have seen this again and again with the Saints -- we jump out to a lead, even a comfortable lead, and then, we take our foot off the gas. It is SUPER ANNOYING. We did not do that in 2009 and I seem to remember us not doing that in the years running up to the Super Bowl win. We need to remember how to do that. This BS is about the offense's performance and play calling. Letting another team hang around is stupid.
agreed with JP. good stuff, WDiCA.

LOVED seeing the Payton Gunslinging. good name for it, too.
