Observations from the Saints' Loss to the Falcons

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; OL did not show up today. Too many penalties... Lethargic energy throughout the game, unfocused. 28 and 41 not used much today. Move on from today and forget it. It's a new week next week. Saints still a top team. ...

Observations from the Saints' Loss to the Falcons

OL did not show up today.

Too many penalties...

Lethargic energy throughout the game, unfocused.

28 and 41 not used much today.

Move on from today and forget it. It's a new week next week. Saints still a top team. Can't win them all.

I figured we would lose one to the Failclowns or Panties. Maybe 1 more before playoffs. I'd rather beat the Failclowns thanksgiving night though. This loss will humble them.

We laid our yearly egg. Nothing new or shocking at all.

Good energy coming off the bye, Ginn continues to improve his reliability. Peat doesnt get enough credit

Re: Observations from the Saints' Loss to the Falcons

1. The penalties were back from the start of the season and it bit us in the ass.

2. Clapp looked like absolute trash out there, he got beaten like a drum all day long. Huge drop-off from Peat.

3. No pressure from the D-line on a hobbled Ryan.

4. It felt like we abandoned the running game too early in the game.

5. The penalty on Gray was nothing to discuss. But what a boneheaded play in that moment.

6. Harris was the only bright spot with a couple of good returns.

7. Thomas had a "quiet" game but is still a man among boys.

8. If Lattimore is out for an extended period we will be in trouble. Him being able to shut down the opposing no1 WRs are a key to our defence.

9. The mentality wasn't there today. We looked unconcerned and uninterested. Looked like we got fat and happy during the bye week.

10. Playcalling felt predictable on offense. I could guess half of the plays as we were lining up.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

Klein slow as hell
Ginn catch cant catch
Even when we get into the red zone, we throw short - Zero aggressiveness
Cam Jordan and the D line were invisible
O line got bullied by a team that had 7 sacks on the season

Second time this year Payton got greedy in garbage time and left his starters in to get injured when the game was out of hand. First Apple now Thomas.
Brees isn’t in it for the team he’s in it for the stats.

Re: Observations from the Saints' Loss to the Falcons

I don’t really know where to go with this. This loss is inexcusable. You want to lose, lose on the road against a great defense. You don’t lose at home against a 1-7 team with a bottom 3 defense.
