What we learned after the Saints' playoff win against the Panthers

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We overcame adversity and won this game. We swept them....three games. That's tough to do. We play Minnihaha next week for a rematch. We lost a good one with Peat broken fibula....

Offense found it’s air game. Not worried about the running game. Carolina has solid run defense and sold out.
Offense was great except for third quarter
Defense stepped up when it counted.

We wanted this game. No way we win it otherwise. Sean has these guys tuned in.

It was total BS that concussion protocol for Scam Newton... He should have sat out much longer than he did.

Bell almost cost us this game. If the receiver just sticks out a hand then game over. I'm glad the kittens receiver sucked as bad as Bell did in this game. I have to give him props on the game ending sack though. That's how you make up for a bad play. Seans balls have officially re dropped.

We learned;
Josh Hill can actually catch a ball.
Lutz has a pretty good leg at 50+.
we can still rely on Brees if the run is shutdown.
We learned Sean Payton still has balls.
