Next man up approach. Solid depth from top to bottom and arguably the best X's and O's head coach in the game.

Great system and a solid coaching staff. Business as usual up there.

Re: so

Crossing T's, dotting i's and just getting it done.
Making plays and taking care of the ball.
I can't remember an occasion when NE looked like the keystone cops:
Guys bumping heads while someone scampers for 75 yards,
or allowing teams to convert on 3rd and 17.
It just doesn't happen in NE.
They don't seem to lose, they get beat.
We don't get beat, we lose.

First, I don't recall seeing a single post saying the Saints would go 15-1.

Second, no one believes the Saints defense is fixed, but IMO it is a helluva lot better than the Chinese fire drill we had last year.

Third, once again injuries are devastating the defense.

Fourth, for the most part I thought our O-line played fairly well today.

Finally, I am not going to write off the season after the first regular season game; that would be like someone claiming the Saints were going to the Super Bowl after they went 4-0 in the pre-season.

Re: so

That is an organization built to win.
The saints leadership doesn't know how to effectively build a team like that.
Once this team puts focus on the defense they'll be good, but that will likely happen too late for Brees.

What leads you to believe this?

Without Brees question- 424 passing yards and four touchdowns.
No, what in the Lords name would we be doing out there.
We did however make Del Rio look like Coach Of The Year today.

Nice. Glad we can still laugh & joke about it after a demoralizing defeat.
