Great defense made up for a 2nd half poor offense.

The Saints just don't do well in running off the clock. They should just focus on what they do well, running up the score.

Seemed like Mike Triplett's Dad's ref crew got really ticky-tack with the calls killing every decent run play by Kamara-Ingram in the second half...

Well some of it was ticky-tack calls, but it did seem we lost our focus and fire with the big lead - worrisome...

It did. This is not the first time I have seen this from the Saints. Other teams do the same thing with a big lead. I think psychologically there is some conflict here -- because besides the fact that you feel like 35 points is a comfortable lead -- if you keep your foot on the gas -- you will be accused of "running up the score". I think this game is an argument against the latter.

This is what happens when Harvey Werinstein is your coach.
