Colin Cowherd is the one who didn't. He pointed out the missed face mask call on Goff that would've put the Rams at first and goal and we would've likely been down 24-20 after that. He also focused on how we got the ball in OT and turned it over.

The only thing Colin had right was saying that we peaked in November and when he showed Brees' stats from weeks 1-9 in comparison to the final 6 games. His TD/INT ratio was 31-2 in the first 9 weeks. It went from that down to a horrible 7-5 in the last 6 games. Brees was averaging less than 200 yards passing to end the year. Our offense went from averaging 31 points down to 19. Something was definitely wrong with the offense and they never got back on track after that loss to Dallas. This is a legit argument and should be noted. It's the main reason I do not think we would've beat the Patriots in the SB had we got there. As badly as the offense struggled, I know in my gut that Bill B would've knew just what to do to make the SB hell for us.

Colin could've made a much better argument if he wasn't trying to hype up the Rams. He talked about the Saints offense being a problem before the game and that was why he was so high on picking the Rams. I think his pick being right was the main reason he was so smug about them winning.
There was no missed facemask call on Goff. This was confirmed by former head of officiating Dean Blandino. He explained you can now grab a facemask as long as you release it without "twisting, turning or pulling". Simply "grasping" a facemask is no longer a penalty. Rule 12, Section 2, Article 5 of the NFL Rule Book (page 81) states that "no player shall twist, turn, or pull the facemask of an opponent in any direction." The Rule Book describes the penalty as follows: "Penalty: For twisting, turning or pulling the mask: loss of 15 yards. A personal foul.

Grasping the facemask used to be a five yard penalty, but it is now deemed inadvertent.
