That loss has to hang over. You weren't beat, you blew it lol. And your O coord didn't help throwing the ball when he should have been running

I think they were beat. They were fine during the cruise, but were out coached by better coaches and outplayed by better players when it mattered. And they were totally in every way shape and form beat by the end of the game.

I thought the points were all very relevant. It was was written with a fair and unbiased opinion. I actually thought it was more accurate and well written than most of our beat writers. He didn't mention coaches but that is understandable. They are harder to evaluate and it's the players we see on the field and follow throughout their career. Not some new position coach. Just sayin.......

I agree. It seemed more objective than others I have read, yet still somewhat uninformed. The lack of factoring in what the new coaching has to offer throws most of the evaluation off by a large degree. Once again, the changes related to the defensive and special teams have been passed over.

Re: The Falcoholic: Could the New Orleans Saints present a bigger challenge than expected?

For the most part, it was a decent written article. It is was at this point where it started going downhill:

"How they incorporate Adrian Peterson into the offense is the most glaring question. It was a puzzling, albeit low-risk signing. Pairing a two-down running back with Mark Ingram seems confusing on paper."

Are we the only people that realize AP is a replacement for Hightower? We don't need him to be AP of the past. We need him to backup Ingram.

And his take on the defense is only partially right. Yeah, we haven't had a LB on D worth a poop since Vilma. I will give him that but as far as DB's. C'mon...you can't just skip over the fact that we had street free agents starting because of injuries, and not think that would effect a defense performance.

But I guess it is what it is. A divisional outsider opinion that matches the majority of other outside opinion.

well they lost so yeah. lol. But they were up by what 25 points in the 4rth quarter? You lose a game like that and you have no one to blame but yourself.

Out coached absolutely and their defense was exhausted by the end

I guess there's just no way I can admit that they could've ever won that game. Not even close to the best game I've ever watched, but it sure was up there.

That was a monumental collapse by the filthy birds that had a team defeated. Yeah I agree, that's gonna sting for a while.
