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.

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.

Re: We Had An Ugly Game


I posted that tweet in another thread. I know a bunch of folks will say stuff like that shouldn't happen, they are pros and all that hoopla. The thing is it still does. You just kinda run out of energy, it is especially prone to happening after a big win like against the Redskins.
And if you have a bad week of practise it will usually show up on sunday.

And losing 2 starting CBs and a DE doesn't help either. The Rams are a good football team and you can't give them any slack at all. We play our worst game since week 2 and are still only a TD away thou, thats a positive.

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

My only point about Drew is it appeared on a couple of the long balls he threw they were well under thrown. It has nothing to do with his accuracy or ability to throw 25 yards.

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...
It is not a matter of calling for anyone's head, it was one game. I would only question Drew on his arm strength, at least on this day. Accuracy, hes is the king.
