Before Drew threw that pass to Kirkwood in the 3rd quarter, he had 69 yards passing. He had pressure in his face constantly.

Just a terrible showing.

I hope they rebound and get things sorted out. Idk if it was playcalling, guys just not focused, or if guys were just getting their ass kicked. Maybe all three, but that game was the worst offensive display I can remember in recent memory.

I think it was a combination of these.

To be fair to the Saints, it's virtually impossible to keep your focus for 16 games. Some of the greatest teams in NFL history were 13-3 (Saints) or 14-2 etc. It's slightly different for a road team (see Max Unger comments on back to back Thursday games) vs getting to sit @ the crib two weeks in a row like the Cows did.

I guess my point is that it isn't necessarily proof that the Saints aren't the juggernaut we thought but it could have been just one of those nights.

New win streak starts next Sunday vs the Bucs.

Ugly game. No intensity. Play calling SUCKED.

The Sucs are looking better.

The weather for Sunday looks like ****. 80% chance of rain with winds 10-20 mph.

This team had better get it back and get it back quick or they'll lose AGAIN to TB

Still say it was three (3) games in twelve (12) days and we were on the road - and we were still in it at the end...

I agree with you now. Don’t forget (and no ones talking about this) Seattle’s former DC is Dallas’s secondary coach. He knew how to create pressure up front and manhandle Drew’s receivers. And DAMN did those refs suck
