They limited the big plays and they were opportunistic. Had last week's offense shown up we would have blown them out of the water.

Here's hoping both units show up next Monday. While we're at it, let's make sure that the special teams only has to see the field on kickoffs. Go for 2 everytime lol.

Yeah you have to acknowledge the good with the bad. D played well considering most are rooks in the secondary. I also think the DL did better than some think and that took presure of the DB's. Plus D had to deal with a dead offense, Which can be frustrating.
When I played you literally want to walk over to the offencive bench and scream "How long are we suppose to hold get some damn points !"
Huge weakness on this team is SP, and Im not seeing a winning spirit in the locker room. Even Brees looked almost like he didnt know what to do anymore or losing faith in the presser after the game. That has me concerned.

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

We wouldn't have lost either game without all of the injuries in our secondary. It changes everything in the game. Our defense has done a great job considering. When you look at the numbers it doesn't give you the entire picture. We've lost 2 games by a total of 4 points, 4 points, we're talking about 4 points.

2 pass interference calls on the Raiders last drive, secondary injuries and the FG miss killed us.

The field goal miss, secondary injuries and the fumble killed us.

Now we know what we have to do so let's get it done Payton. WE NEED VETS IN THE SECONDARY NOW! GET TO TRADIN!

Everyone hop back on the bandwagon and get this s**t started!
Yep we have twice been within a play of winning, but we are still 0-2. That stat matters more than any of them. Talk to me in a few weeks after we win a few games. We have looked better than I thought we would, but we are still 0-2.

I'm positive I love the Saints. Beyond that, I'm positive I'm just trying to be positive.

If the locker room can stay together and use it as fuel, then it'll pay dividends later.

I'd rather a young team have some adversity and see that they can overcome it, than deal with adversity later, and not know how to deal with it. Mid-Late season is when you gotta string them together for the push. There are teams notorious for starting slow and getting hot later, which then carries through to the post season.
