Re: Remind Me Not to Get Excited

Had so much fun watching that game. Wicked cool game of all time, nice to see the old Brees outshoot ELi , and O having fun, but thats all it is.

Unless Saints win what they lost, the - 4 in row vs
Ten = below average
Was= average
Hou = below average
Cam kittens = above average and lucky
,and pay back the below average TB to be 9-4 or 8-5. Winning both divisional games to put the Saints in the running.
Im not drinking the post season bandwagon kool-aid .
An above average team would find a way to win at least 4-1 of these games.

Because only at that point do you have 2 more below average teams, Det, Jax, and a possibility of 10-5 or 11-4.

Problem is our defense is still hot garbage, and lost us most post season games before. They fold like a picnic chair.
3 of the opposing teams sites I was on said the same thing. If Brees had just a decent ,consistent Defense threw out his career in N.O., he would have easily had 2 or maybe more SB wins.
Im just going to enjoy watching the boys win cool games like this, and don't expect much. Fun game.

Saints proved that pigs could fly in 2009.
Now its time for another miracle SuperBowl and go where no pig has gone before.

Does that help?
Am I the only one seeing thru the numbers
on this defense?
- Yes we were the worst D in football for several weeks. If you go purely
by stats, they're horrible.
- but I saw aggressiveness, pressure, some ball hawking, giants runners
stuffed at the line.
- also sunday, they made the stop that counted. the last one that forced a punt.

- yall know ive been critical, but im starting to like this defense, and our
young guns

100% agree. Statistically, they are horrible. But, they have not quit and have made plays when they had to. They'll continue to improve and gel.

statistically bad, yes, I agree with you that it doesn't mean much in a win

here's my big concern:
14 points by Atl in the 4th Q
21 points by Indy in the last 18 minutes
28 2nd half points by the Giants

are we tired on defense, or are everybody's adjustments working and ours aren't?

Someone can't make game time adjustments?
7 TDs, 52 points, and that only let's you win by a 50/50 field goal?
I am glad to get back to .500 but definitely not excited.
