Different players, nearly the same outcome.

We are a dumb team, especially on D.
That was 2015. I was there. The previous week we beat the Giants in a ridiculously entertaining but heart-stopping game, and I was at the endzone where that farcical play took place. We actually had the interception until the collision. I was stunned.

Ahh my bad, looks like we haven't learned anything since then!

Re: On To The Patriots

We are the kings of the "Almost-Turnover".

Unreal.

Re: On To The Patriots

Re watched the Pats vs KC game and came away with this :

Pats pass rush was just as suspect as ours.
Their offensive line isn't world beaters.
Brady may not have another WR weapon (Amendola/concussion protocol) at his disposal.
Hightower didn't practice on Wednesday (not a good sign for him playing).

For those that say "we'll be torched" ... I disagree. NE can be had in the dome. Saints film study, preparation & communication on defense will be paramount. I think AP will be more involved in the offense for game 2 ... same goes for MIngram.

Create turnovers (strips, force fumbles, knocking the ball out, blocked punts). We are long over due on getting a INT.

Saints 27-21.

Thats great optimistic but I have 99% no faith in Dennis Allen. I believe he go in with a plan but not able to adjust when plan break down. Minnesota plan was to keep 3rd down short and strike with crossing routes nor P.J or Harris could defend. Simple adjustment would've been to use lb to slow them down on crossing or go one deep safety go double coverage underneath with ML in man. I can understand they went Harris over Crawley because he is a better open field tackler but Crawley is a better cover corner which what they needed and Moore is a better overall corner than Harris which make me go back and ask why Harris over Moore? If Harris is chosen again over Crawley & Moore I will have absolutely no faith in Dennis Allen

The 3 play drive that ended with Diggs TD, the crossing route that PJ gave up really made me question his ability to be a player in this league.

Despite missing the Jam at the line he was still in great position, literally all he had to do was turn around. Why do our corners never turn to face the ball!!!!

That's on Allen and Glenn. Never liked what I saw in Pre Season from Harris but if you are going to play him, disguise him. Having a play maker like Diggs on Harris was a recipe for disaster. Pretty much all second half.

At this level, WR's shouldn't be running free down field en-route to huge gains.

I've been thinking about the RB situation and I just keep coming to the conclusion that Kamara is the guy now. I just don't think you throw a rookie into the fire like we did in week 1 on MNF with a healthy Ingram and AP on the bench if you don't want him to be #1.

Re: On To The Patriots

Dear New Orleans Saints:

My 13th Wedding Anniversary is this Monday. The wife is a Patriots fan. If you guys could win on Sunday. I won't have to listen to her talk for a whole day. This would be the best gift I could ask for.

Even though they won a couple of Super Bowls. I'm still living off the last time the Saints beat the Patriots. I have the game on DVD. When she start talking crazy I just put the DVD into my computer and watch the game and she leaves me alone. I always invite her to sit and watch but she never does.

Please do your best to win. Not just for me, but for every SAINTS FAN.

Thank You.
