If you watched some of the games yesterday, having or not having 1-2 timeouts for the end of the game made all the difference in at least half the games. We lost because we didn't have a timeout at the end. So did the Cowboys. Lions won because they had theirs. Cardinals could have got the ball in a lot closer and probably won if they had theirs.

I really don't care in the third or early fourth quarter if we have too many men on the field or can't get the play in in time, just take the penalty and keep the timeouts. With the accuracy Brees showed yesterday, 5 yards doesn't scare me much.

Re: I am not as disappointed now

The Giants, Seahawks and Chiefs won!!!!! I'll take an ugly win every day. Especially over a gut wrenching, mistake filled, collapse at home. Yes, there was a lot of positives. Brees, Cooks, Snead, Thomas and Ingram all looked great. The OLine with Evans is solid. PJ Williams looked good. Robertson was solid in place of Ellerbe. Vaccaro was flying around. But, there was ZERO pressure on the QB against a less than stellar, injury depleted OLine. Payton's horrible misuse of timeouts. An UDFA in Crawley who clearly isn't NFL ready. Cutting Finnegan, who could have been a difference maker yesterday, while keeping six RB's on a passing team is horrible roster management. It's like everybody pointing to last years 7-9 record and thinking the team was close. They were 5-9 after getting blown out in games that could have mattered, before beating two teams playing out the string. I'm hopeful that they can atleast put a band aid on the CB spot and Kruger can make a little difference. It's only one game and the offense is absolutely for real. But, I won't be shocked at a less than .500 season again.

A CB is going to have to be brought if if that is a broken fibula. He will be lucky to be back before week 8-9 and the team is going to have a tough decisions wether to IR him and put Rankins out all year or just keep him on the roster unfit

I still believe we are better on defense but need some depth and a solid pass rusher or 2. I hope it was just first game syndrome for Cam and Kruger

Re: I am not as disappointed now

We need a couple of CBs.
One injury leaving you with a red shirt rookie and 2 UDFA on the starting roster is pretty much inexcusable at this level

+1 Lee,
I honestly believe we have the worst roster depth in the NFL.
In actual games, we are clearly outmatched.

Re: I am not as disappointed now

nobodys talking about it so i will, you can't tell me those refs didn't change the outcome of that game, sorry if i'm a whiney b-otch but watched the game with legit fans and we all thought them botched calls changed every effort of 106 players of both teams, and we landed with the game final outcome. the big L. Waited 3 years to get a home opener to let the zebs blow crap on tv.

Re: I am not as disappointed now

The refs were bad,they have been in all the preseason games i watched too BUT IMO they were just as bad for both teams. The difference was the flags on the Saints came at a critical point late

Re: I am not as disappointed now

Let the excuses flow.
Another year of mediocrity under Sean Payton is what we're looking at.

Wasn't able to catch this game and I'm pretty happy with that now.
