MOST FRUSTRATING LOST of the Season.

I been saying this for some time now...

It doesn't matter if you can score 40 points a game if the other team is allowed to score 41 points a game.

This was the best example when you should be able to beat a team like this. You come out and looked good except for a couple of crazy plays that kept them in the game.

We have gone to a run and shoot offense because our line sucks they can't run effectively against anyone and when game is on the line they get blown up and get to Brees.

We can't mount a pass rush to save our lives... we have been exposed early this season and the flaws are evident to everyone and we can't fix them now. Come on off season... it can't get here fast enough.

Re: MOST FRUSTRATING LOST of the Season.

I had the pleasure of watching this one from the Club section.

My thoughts: The Saints played with no passion at all. The defense was walking slowly back to line and could someone on that defense try to get angry?. I noticed a few times when a CB would avoid a collision to tackle (no names mentioned). The Titans were punching the O-Line in the mouth and hitting Drew late on purpose. The O-Line didn't respond to that and looked scared.

The Saints were more talented but the Titans were definitely bullies.

And at $11/beer I had to watch it sober.

Re: MOST FRUSTRATING LOST of the Season.

Oh they have passion... they came out with excitement and passion.

The problem is that we have no talent on the line or on D. There is passion but no talent. No coaching of the D on how to use the players or motivate them. The LB's I saw them break down to make a tackle and them move aside and let the ball carrier go #57.

Re: MOST FRUSTRATING LOST of the Season.

Talent is not the issue. Greg Williams had one of the least talented Defenses in 2010 but got us to #4 because of coaching and scheme. We have the worst defensive coaching staff I have seen this decade from all nfl teams.

Also, watched the game from 142 row 15 and ill say the Defense doesn't seem to have that fire... I saw cam up trying to fire people and Allen constantly trying to coach the dbs but not much fire in this team...

Gregg Williams came at a huge price and it seems he's still up to his old tricks.

Re: MOST FRUSTRATING LOST of the Season.

This game exposed our coaching staff in all 3 phases.

Sad, too. The Titans had an interim HC on his 1st week on the job midway through the season with a rookie QB running the 28th ranked offense.

Let's not forget that when we went up 28-20, we gave them the ball at the 43 yard line on the kick off return where they went down and tied it up 28-28...or our botched FG with a minute left.

In a span of 5 minutes, Greg McMahon's Special Teams gives their offense 57 yards to tie it up, then in the final minute he doesn't have his Special Teams in place in time and the Titans partially block the go-ahead FG with a minute left...thanks, Greg McMahon, for all you do for this team.

I saw that replay ... Zimmer walked right by Fisher and didn't shake hands. Obviously he was super hot about that cheap shot by the Rams player.
Hope Teddy is OK.

Re: MOST FRUSTRATING LOST of the Season.

The Saints are just not a good team. Good teams don't lose games like that one. At home. When it matters. Against a lesser opponent. And after next week they'll be 5-5 and still alive. And we will still hope until there is no more hope. Saints fan 101.

Re: MOST FRUSTRATING LOST of the Season.

I prefer "LOST" to "LOSS" in the title.
Pretty fitting description of our much loved and often extremely confusing Saints organization.
