What we learned from our loss on Thursday night

Too many injuries costs us.

Refs had a penchant for calling flags against the Saints.

Our destiny is in our hands, still.

Re: What we learned from our loss on Thursday night

despite the rash of of injuries and the multiple ticky tack calls against us. drew had a chance to do his thing. He forced it and we lost.

I hate to whine but that was definitely one of the most one sided reefed games I have seen in a long time.

Did Roger call to make the NFC South title race a ratings saver?

We learned that Thursday night football is crap. Playing on such a short week really sucks from an injury standpoint.

SP should not be calling plays.

3 straight stops by our D in the second half and three straight punts by us.

3 interceptions and 17 points to show for it.

Brees' decision making has gotten worse, absolutely no need to force that pass.

As bad as the officiating was, the L is on Sean Payton and his play calling. Just too damn "pass happy" for my taste.

All of a sudden, this team is beat up with injuries. Let's hope we get guys back healthy sooner than later.

It’s on Brees not Payton. Payton didn’t decide to throw that pick... Brees has a wide open check down and missed it.

Fact is Brees is just average now, for what ever reason, the arm or his ticker isn’t working as well... whatever it is he’s just not the MVP type player anymore.

The MVP in this offense is Kamara and with him out we are An average offense.

I learned that Josh Hill is never going to be our TE. It's time to scrap the roster at that position and start over. Cap hits or whatever else. Keep whosyourmama but give the rest their papers and call it a day.

What we didn't learn

Force them to stop the run

Clock management
1st down on 12 yard line 1:43
Run run run

Payton won't learn from this

Wrong. But you've been blaming Brees for 7 freaking years, even when the defense was dead last in the NFL and worst of all time.
We learned that we had to hear you say the same thing again.
