Brees has never played the wade Phillips defense well, he always gets killed.

Today was particularly ugly, and I'll say the majority of the loss is on him. Defense sucked but did enough to give our offense a shot...

Re: We Had An Ugly Game

Thomas is the primary X WR but we need a big body TE. Fleener isn't that guy. Coleman isn't that type of receiver. Hadn't seen that monster since Jimmy Graham was here.

But yes, Brees had an ugly game.

Re: We Had An Ugly Game

SP called plays as many feared and tried to pass on a good pass defense...desire to show he could? We went pass heavy from the 1st series. Even while 10 behind we should've been running. Rams run defense not as good.

On D, should've taken a page from posters here and not started D. Harris. PJ and Sterling Moore were obvious to start. Needed to blitz the young QB more, too, when neither CB is 1st string. Duh.

Once going away from what got us here (run) led to the likely conclusion (behind all game), I could believe it when he didn't make the SP patented gamble and try on 4th and goal on the 5 with so little time left. That sealed it.

I think there were two reasons, number 1 we were not having success running minus the big run by Kamara and 2. I think he looked at the success Minny had passing against them.

Truth be told we just got whooped up front today by their dline, and they have a lot of speed on their defense. Plus they were amped for today and chomping at the bit. You could see that and it was probably because of how they were man-handled by Minny. You'd expect or hope that we will have that same type of passion this week at home because of how we played this week.

They won on defense.
They won on offense.
They won on special teams.
We had a bad game.

They played a lot of man defense, stacked for the run and played for the short pass.

What ever team preparations they make for trips ti the west coast needs to be scraped ASAP. This team has historically been lousy when in the west coast i dont know why but i cant remember the last time they played well out there

Re: We Had An Ugly Game

Down top three CB
Down starting DE

Held one of the highest scoring teams under 30pts.

Offense sounds like it had a poor game against one of the best fronts in the league.


A bad game

Everything still in the teams hands

Shake it off and move on

Re: We Had An Ugly Game

Do you think Brees haven't develop the timing and trust with Ginn or his arm is deteriorating?

Is Sean Payton to trusting in Brees arm or is he just pig headed to run the ball

Do they finally cut Harris and if so will they sign Jalen Collins

Why not activate Muhammad? So many questions I will love to be answered

The O-line does not get a pass. Brees made some dumb throws more than a few times in double and triple coverage but he did not have much time.

Agreed. There was a lot of ugly O-line play out there yesterday. Pretty much all of them got their asses handed to them at one point or another.
They made a ton of good plays too but this was not the best performance of the year for the group.
