What went right Sunday...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Another positive... I'm in the "Don't kid yourself, Drew, aging is about to bite you in your arse" group and didn't think a long term contract was wise... That said, I thought he threw the long ball better , yes ...

Another positive...

I'm in the "Don't kid yourself, Drew, aging is about to bite you in your arse" group and didn't think a long term contract was wise...

That said, I thought he threw the long ball better, yes I said "better" than he has in two years...

And that first touchdown throw to Cooks, threading three defenders, was pretty ******* impressive...

So "Hats Off" to Brees on an outstanding day, even if he did look a little rusty/gun shy out the gate...

The longest TD pass in Saints history! Sucks that we lost but at least we've got that memory for the scrapbook.

Re: What went right Sunday...

The fact that Brandin Cooks is soon to be 23 years old and in my biased opinion is quickly becoming one of the best WR's in the league.

The guy isn't just a deep threat, he has great hands and catches a slant just as well as a 60 yard pass.

I'd say the 98 yard touchdown was the loudest I've heard the Dome in a couple of years.

Re: What went right Sunday...

I do think there is a massive case to be made that Pete Carmichael keeps the playcalling duties. Didn't think id ever be saying that but that offense looked good. The only criticism was that they should have been clock chewing and riding Ingram to the win late on but that wouldn't have been different had Payton been calling the plays. Its just the way they are.Best the offense has looked in a long time(well at least through three quarters). Still blaming Fleener inability to catch costing us points late

Hopefully Fleener shows up more in the red zone vs the Giants. I have a feeling he will be more involved in Sean's offense on Sunday.

Side note - maybe CJ Spiller shows up and shows out as well .

Not sure Brees will trust him in the redzone. He drops the ball when unchallenged.

If im Drew im going to Snead again and again. The msn makes plays and has great hands

Brees' accuracy was sick

that first td to Cooks he hit a very narrow window
the 98 yard bomb he hit Brandin perfectly in stride

Jari Evans was seamless coming into the lineup
The left side was awesome in the run game and Ingram hit a few nice runs
Cadet and Murphy didn't show much


Byrd was clueless out there, always out of position
three quarters of D with Breaux out there and that was with 4 seconds + of time for Carr to throw behind a decimated line no less. ugghh

Vaccaro played even better didn't he?

Pete Carmichael had an outstanding game, changing it up was smart on Payton's part; we even had a few running plays mixed in with the program...
