We Had An Ugly Game

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I thought things would go south when we started out passing. We are not that team anymore. Get back to pounding it and Snead more involved in the slot. Could have totally grinded out a W. The D did enough ...

Rams were ranked #27th against the run yet on the opening drive we passed 100% of the time.

Kamara was in a zone yet he didn't touch the ball when we were on the goal line. Why not continue to do what's working until it doesn't work anymore? I remember Bill Parcells telling paying that he is "too pass happy" at times back during his OC days up in NY. Same still applied on yesterday.

Play calling was suspect on Sunday.

Re: We Had An Ugly Game

You can't run the ball that much if you are playing behind so much.

Rams played great for starters I think they deserve a lot of credit more than how bad we played. I also noticed how much bigger they are on all levels of the field.

We missed a lot of tackles and over all they were better.

So if you are down 7-0, are you still throwing the ball 100% of the time on the subsequent drive?

It was 10 to nothing pretty quick and we were flat. There was enough runs to keep them honest but it wasn't just us the Rams came to play.

You can blame play calling all you want but when you get out played - nothing beats that.

Even after the 70+ yard TD by that stud Kamara, guess how many more carries he had the entire game? 4.

4 yard dink, screen, screen. C'mon coach, run the ball. This game was never out of hand to the point where you abandon the run. That's coaching.

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
Now you know good and well the Saints are not going to sign Jalen Collins. He is probably done in the NFL and even if he isn't, he won't get is second chance with the Saints. They are probably stuck with Harris for the foreseeable future.

Re: We Had An Ugly Game

Why are people blaming the OL? They wasn't perfect but they were far from horrible. Just face it Brees was not Brees out there. Don't just listen to what the commentators say about no separation from wr. When db are playing man it won't be much of a separation, that is why you throw back shoulder throws. Everyone know back in the day Brees would fit those balls in. He also had his opportunities with big plays down field to Ginn, he was either short with the pass or he just didn't throw it. I didn't consider Brees horrible considering he was 22/32, 246 yds, td. The problem was they weren't running the ball enough with Kamara. 5 running plays, that was it for Kamara. Let's be real, Sean Payton's play calling didn't do the saints any favors.

Why shot my dream down? Can we at at least still cut Harris?

Re: We Had An Ugly Game

I thought the offensive line played just fine. We held on to the ball too long on multiple occasions and Drew makes some of the most mind puzzling throws sometimes. I don't know how he didn't have 3-4 picks this past game. I don't think he realizes there are just some throws he can't make anymore. If his timing is off, he doesn't have the arm strength to make up for it. He also missed a couple of easy touchdown passes as well. I'm not saying this to **** on Drew, it's just the truth.

That said, if our starting corners were playing, I believe we would have won this game. On to Carolina. More running the football. More game managing and screens from Drew.
