Everyone needs to chill out

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm not freaking out. The lack of depth is concerning so health is critical. The schedule (3 games in 11 days) is daunting. In the end, we're likely to finish 11-5 or 10-6. Then it's a new season....

Maybe he's blowing DA and Payton.
Possibly no truth to this but I read that SP & Allen are very good friends with his dad . But back on topic, Harris was bad starting in training camp & subsequent pre season games. To see him start the first two weeks over Ken (who was very good @ t/c) is absolutely mind boggling.

We shall see what develops on tomorrow's injury report as it relates to Ken and Latt.

See? Conspiracy. No way Harris starts over Crawley based on TC & preseason performance.

We get pressure using just Front 4 & we can help cover that gigantic hole where De'Doofus Harris pretends to defend. Blitzing anyone leaves man-2-man coverage.

Hopefully we should get ML and/or KC back for this brutal 3 game stretch. We gone need it. We got this...just 2 outta 3 & we're solid. Or just get all 3 and rejoice.

Re: Everyone needs to chill out

Should things stay as they are and we win Sunday, we're looking at either Falcons or Panthers in New Orleans...

That'd be a tall task to beat Carolina 3X's in one year...

Losing to the Rams really hurts as it likely cost us a 2nd or 3rd seed...

Agreed! I've been saying the Saints need a loss to get back their focus. The coaches have a hard time getting through to the players when they are on a win streak. I think this is exactly what they needed right now.

Just to piggyback on Hagan ...

* Rams had 8, 9 men in the box most of the game (limited MI). I didn't see many adjustments by the Saints.

* Time of possession was lop sided - Rams - 35 minutes to Saints 23. 23 minutes isn't a lot of time to protect our defense w/multiple injuries.

* 3 for 13 on 3rd down. Gotta do better here.

Saints did a LOT to not allow themselves a good opportunity to win vs a good Rams team yet we were an onside kick away from potentially winning.

I agree with other posters who have stated we are still dangerous. I think this team has a convincing performance (again) against the Kittens.

Re: Everyone needs to chill out

I'm not going to chill out. Mediocre defense and we couldn't capitalize. Got burned on ST, but still kept to the 'plan'. Brees and Ingram were pedestrian, and we were one big play from having a god-awful day offensively.

Forget pointing to Lattimore being out; we did not execute in what should have been a separation game. Now we are back with the pack
