There was a fantastic photo of the catch on the Saints Instagram. Unfortunately I don't know how to get it up here in an easy way.

Glad you brought this up ... I went back and looked at special teams ... Jake Lampman stood out. I counted 3 tackles ... plays angry and with aggression. Not sure if coach Payton mentioned his play post game but I thought he looked good vs Carolina.

Danno...I'd sure like to sit in with PFF and get schooled up on how the hell they grade...

Sometimes I think they rubberstamp it because they're some players (e.g. Unger, Cooks, Thomas, Robertson) who's play seems better than their PFF grades...

Now, I know Newton is not your average quarterback, but twice Jordan had him in the grasp, in the grasp, but couldn't get him down; if it had been any other QB, it would've been an in-the-grasp call, but Newton being Cam Gigantor Newton, different set of rules...

But G-d*mn, Jordan's still an NFL defensive end, get the MFer on the ground...

Jordan also lost edge containment on at least three different runs plus the Newton touchdown...

For me, when I judge players, gotta believe you apply a factor on what they're being paid...

Example, you and I have both agreed many B&G fans here are overly critical of the RB Travaris Cadet and the expectations don't match what he produces, the many roles he fills and for what he's compensated...

Simply, that works up the ladder as well...

And for the four man rush to produce little to no pressure, especially seeing how we've faced some backups the past few weeks, I just can't help but think Cam Jordan's best days as a 4-3 defensive end...

In fact, thought we saw better pressure from Edebali, who's a backup...

So that's my reasoning, rationale for getting down on him...

But I'd totally agree with you that it was nice for Brees and Lutz to somehow overcome that big momentum shift and eek out the win...

You know, I am as guilty as anyone for not realizing what an incredible play that was, especially considering how this guy is just coming off a bad ankle injury...

jnormand is right, that was an incredible catch, even if one of the league-boy refs tried to nullify his reception...
