That has never been Drew's game. BTW, Philly had the same thing you're describing with Chip Kelly and they ran him out of town on a rail once the rest of the league caught on. I doubt they could have done that crap if we were at full strength.

Those are fair points. I just felt frustrated watching the Saints tonight - taking a lot of time off the play clock to execute very ordinary throws. Especially when we go 5 wide, allowing the defense forever to get setup is not a good thing.

Re: 0-3 Do you see any hope for 2016?

One of the things that frustrates me the most is, despite Drew's ability, there seem to be a ton of of passes that are predetermined. I am aware that on every play there is a primary receiver, but I'm talking about deciding before the play that he's going to throw to that receiver, no matter what.

Drew is too good to just bail out and check down for a 1 yard gain or 3 yard loss like he kept doing tonight. Our offense has done a ton of that during this three year run of losing.

There are times when he has to get rid of it, and then there are times where he isn't under pressure but he just dumps it off without even looking downfield.

Then there are those quick slant routes that have been mentioned in this thread that lead too much trouble to keep running it as often as they do. All that predictability is killing drives. With this defense, the offense can't afford to stop itself.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

36/54, 354 yards 3 touchdowns, 7-11 on third down. The Saints only punted twice. If that kinda performance frustrates you, you're gonna be disappointed a lot.

0-3...and only one game back in their own division.
its not that bad. Theyll be 1-3 next week and either be 2 behind atlanta or just one behind everyone.

keep your shirt on.

First this is not based in reality, but even I were to pretend it was, we are two games back not one, and we haven't won a game

I honestly can't look at a game and say that's a win right there, the defense is worse than last year!! How is that even possible?!?

So you have decided that this one game is all the sample size I'm using after back to back losing seasons and an 0-3 start this year? Try again.

54 passes to get to 354 yards proves my point, however. That is horribly inefficient, and that happens too often. We had two punts, a turnover on downs and an interception which came on one of those predictable plays. That throw simply should never have been made but he tried to force it in, anyway.

That's four stops. How many times did we stop the Falcons? Is their offense better than ours? If so, that's embarrassing.

But how about last week's performance? Where was this vaunted offense when we needed them then? The offensive line is light years away from where it used to be in the glory days, but just as big of a problem has been this check down passing game and all the predictability. The aggressive play calling shows up sporadically and then disappears for long stretches.

Re: 0-3 Do you see any hope for 2016?

My expectations for this team have been severely lowered after the now 0-3 start.

I find myself not getting as frustrated as I normally would watching it last night, purely because I expected us to find a way to lose....and we did.

So from now on it will be a nice surprise if we win, as my expectations are probably on par with what the Raiders or Jags fans have been over the past decade.

I just feel bad for Brees, we have wasted several years of this first ballot HOFer's career with poor defensive play.
